Lamborghini unveils new base-spec Urus S – same 666 hp as the Performante

Following the launch of the souped-up Urus Performante in August, Lamborghini has now also brought some of the key updates over to the base Urus model, alongside a new name – the Urus S.

While it might not look all that different, with the only major changes on the outside being the reworked bumpers and new wheel options, the biggest update on the new super SUV is actually hidden underneath the sheet metal.

Like the Performante, the new Lamborghini Urus S also now comes with the uprated 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, making the same devilish 666 hp (up 16 hp) and 850 Nm of torque, with power sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Lamborghini says that the Urus S also features the same powertrain calibration as the Performante, which means 0-100 km/h is now done in 3.5 seconds (-0.1 seconds), and 0-200 km/h in 12.5 seconds (-0.3 seconds). Top speed remains unchanged at 305 km/h.

Complementing the new powertrain is a retuned exhaust system, giving the Urus S a “more distinct sound at start-up and a sharper note in each drive mode”, alongside the addition of the customisable ‘Ego’ drive mode on the Tamburo drive selector. As before, the adaptive air suspensions are offered as standard.

As for looks, the aforementioned bumpers now get new matte black stainless steel accents, including on the skid plate in front, as standard. The twin exhaust tip design at the rear has also been reprofiled, while customers can now also opt for a new lightweight carbon fibre front bonnet replete with matte black air vents (pictured), as well as an exposed carbon fibre roof.

Inside, influences from the Urus Performante can be seen via the new stitching pattern on the upholstery, alongside new leather colour options. Buyers can now choose between the Bi-colour Sportivo or Bi-colour Sophisticated interior themes, which now also offers a wider selection of leather styles and colours.

As you may recall, the Urus is now Lamborghini’s best-selling model of all-time, with over 20,000 units sold in just a short four-year lifespan. The new S update will undoubtedly help the super SUV retain that status, or even reach greater heights.
