With the Urus being Lamborghini's second SUV, the Raging Bull doesn't have to deal with prejudice, since the LM002 has already paved the way for the newcomer in the late 1980s. Of course, the Sant'Agata Bolognese engineers pumped plenty of performance into the high-riding model and this also makes it difficult to complain about its existence. For instance, this might be a terrain tamer, but the machine is also an excellent athlete, as demonstrated by any drag strip stint.
And we've brought along a piece of footage that showcases the Lamborghini Urus doing its thing at the drag strip. Actually, the video even shows the Italian exotic SUV racing another one of its kind, but this is not the point.

Instead, we want to focus on the performance of the beast. To be more precise, the Lambo can play the quarter-mile game in 11.2 seconds, with a trap speed of 120 mph.

Now, that kind of ET (Elapsed Time) places the Urus in the same ballpark as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, for instance.

Among others, this is a 1/4-mile world record for a production SUV, which, by the way, makes for a brilliant piece of conversation at the bar.

Of course, being so close to the border between two arenas means tuners rub their hands in excitement at the thought of bringing the Lamborghini into the 10-second territory.

And it shouldn't take all that long until we get to see a massaged example of the Lamborghini Urus delivers a 10s 1,320 feet sprint.

We've already shown you a few tuned units of the Italian monster, but we'll probably have to wait for next year to see one that has been properly massaged. We'll keep an eye out for such development and bring you the news as soon as we get our keyboards on it.
