With more and more owners of the Lamborghini Urus taking delivery of their velocity behemoths, we can now see the mighty SUV in action. And a recent stunt of the sort shows us what happens when the successor of the Lambo Rambo is thrown at the sand dunes.
An example of the 650 horsepower toy was taken to the UAE desert, with the aficionado behind the wheel engaging in tail-out shenanigans, as you'll get to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

Note that the Lamborghini Urus comes with a driving mode that's destined for low-grip situations, sandy terrains include.

In fact, here's how the Italian automotive producer tells the story: "Yaw motion is controlled, avoiding understeer into corners and tire slip during acceleration. 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 such as on gravel or sand dunes, making it the ideal mode for off-road fun,"

As for the real-world side of all this, it awaits you behind the "play" button below.

Now, if you happen to be searching for some more serious offroading action involving the Lamborghini Urus, we'll remind you we recently showed you two shenanigans of the sort.

The first showed the Raging Bull going drifting on a rugged terrain course, while the second involved the Sant'Agata Bolognese machine getting some serious air time.

And we're glad to see owners of the Lamborghini Urus leaving the beaten path behind.
