Shock, horror: Lamborghini has made an SUV. The new Lamborghini Urus is the company’s first off-roader since the LM002, but this time it’s totally different. The twin-turbocharged V8 Urus is based on other VW-group SUVs, like the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and perhaps it’s closest luxury rival, the Bentley Bentayga. Lamborghini wants it to be the best handling car in its class, and among the best 4x4s off toad too. We try it on track, on the road, and off road too, to see if Lamborghini’s claims stack up.
My first appreciation of cars came when my first boss took me for a drive in an old air-cooled Porsche 911 in Sydney. I don't remember what model year it was, but I do remember I became addicted to all things automotive from that day onwards. I’m an enthusiastic car nut who geeks out over tuned supercars, obscure classic race cars, automotive memorabilia and just about anything else car related.
