Mid-Engined Lamborghini Urus Rendered, Might Be Built

"Sure, this rendering of a mid-engined Lamborghini Urus is eye feast material, but what translation could it have in the real world?" - if you find yourself asking this question, you should be prepared for a multiple-point answer.

For starters, the "market" for a mid-engined Urus is here. Of course, placing the engine in the middle and thus creating a two-seater would defeat the whole practicality purpose of a crossover.

Then again, social media has led to some crazy builds these days, with this path guaranteeing that one receives attention.

So if aficionados have turned the Huracan into a wannabe rally car (this was before the Sterrato concept) and fitted another incarnation of the V10 toy with a manual gearbox in the race for standing out, why wouldn't somebody come up with a mid-engined Urus?

Of course, while the starting prices of the two Raging Bulls both sit at around $200,000 (the Huracan Evo doesn't play by these rules anymore, though), the amount of work required for the said conversion of the Sant'Agata Bolognese SUV would be considerably higher compared to the supercar projects mentioned above.

But such a stunt would perhaps allow a gear head to fit the Urus with an actual Lamborghini motor, be it a V10 or a V12.

Oh, and while you're nodding in disapproval, here's something to keep in mind. The Cheetah, which was the military project Lamborghini attempted before coming up with the LM002, had its engine... at the back. Of course, that led to handling issues for an offroader, but this new mid-engined concept might just be able to make up for all that.

Of course, a pixel play such as the one we have here also leads to questions that belong right up in fantasy land. For instance, if one were to fit an engine at the middle of a full-six, seven-seater SUV (not an Urus, then), could the seats in the back still be usable?

Meanwhile in the real world, Lamborghini is working on the Urus ST-X, a derivative that will enjoy its own one-make racing series starting next year.
