Lamborghini has launched the Urus Performante in India. The brand’s newest super SUV comes at a starting price of INR 4.22 crore (ex-showroom).
The Performante is 47 kg lighter than the standard Urus. This has been achieved with the use of lightweight materials like carbon fibre. The SUV gets a carbon bonnet as standard, while a carbon roof is available as an option.
The Performante comes with subtle changes to the exterior like a new bonnet with cooling vents, a slightly more aggressive front bumper design and a redesigned rear bumper with new vents on the side.
Inside, the Urus Performante gets Black Alcantara as standard but can be had with leather as an option. The seats also get a new hexagonal design and there are ‘Performante’ badges on the seats, doors and roof lining. Additionally, Lamborghini also offers a Dark Package that adds a Matte Black finish to various accents throughout.
The Urus Performante gets the same 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 as the outgoing model, but it now produces 666hp – 16hp more than the current one. Torque figure, however, remains unchanged at 850Nm. The Performante can sprint from 0-100kph in a claimed 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 306kph (claimed).
The Urus Performante gets a revised suspension setup that uses coil springs instead of air springs. The car sits 20 mm lower and is slightly wider and longer than the standard model. It comes with a new ‘Rally’ mode, alongside the existing Strada, Sport and Corsa modes for better off-road handling.
The Urus Performante is now 20mm lower, 16mm wider and 25mm longer than the outgoing Urus. Additionally, it also gets an SUV-adapted version of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R performance tyres, as an option.
