e Tamburo driving mode selector on the center console controls all dynamic vehicle systems, and active torque vectoring via a rear differential enables propulsive power to be instantly distributed to each individual wheel for enhanced traction, depending on the driving mode, driving style and the road grip. In the driving modes STRADA, TERRA (off-road) and NEVE (snow) torque vectoring reduces understeer for safe and simple driving. In SPORT and CORSA torque vectoring allows the Urus to become more agile with a greater oversteer character: interaction between the four-wheel drive system and ESC manages oversteer to enable a precise and fun drive. In SABBIA (sand) mode, the system is calibrated to guarantee agility and precision on terrains with reduced grip, making it the ideal mode for off-road fun. Additionally, depending on the driving mode selected, the V8 engine has been calibrated to vary the sound and feel of the Urus, from the quietest and most comfortable low-frequency sounds in STRADA mode, to a sportier and more exciting Lamborghini sound and feedback in CORSA. Design cues inside and out define the Urus as a member of the Lamborghini family. e exterior adopts the two-thirds body, one- third window ratio of Lamborghini super sports cars. e peaked mound of the hood recalls both the Miura and Aventador. LED headlights are designed in the familiar Lamborghini Y shape. e Y-shaped front air intakes, also a feature of the LM002, are detailed with the Italian flag. e rear diffuser is inspired by Lamborghini race cars, with integrated double round exhaust pipes. Inside, the Urus amply accommodates five occupants in a low but comfortable super sports car seat position. Oriented around the driver, the slim Y design of the dashboard is inspired by the LM002 as well as by current Lamborghini super sports cars. e Lamborghini hexagonal theme echoes throughout the interior, in elements such as air vents and door handles, and even in items such as the cup holders and air bag modules. Myriad customization options are available, from 21" to 23" tires especially developed by Pirelli for the Urus, to 18-way fully- electric front seats with ventilation and massage. "The Urus fits perfectly within the Lamborghini family as a high-performance car. It is the culmination of intensive development and passionate skill to create a new breed of bull: a Super SUV that transcends the boundaries of expectations and opens the door to new possibilities for both our brand and our customers," said Domenicali. Suggested retail price for the 2019 Lamborghini Urus is $200,000. sl 59
