Sant’Agata’s famed supercar maker is set to debut its first modern SUV, the Urus, which has now been spotted testing at the Nurburgring Nordschleife and on its surrounding roads. Here, the upcoming Lamborghini SUV appears to be as shrouded in camouflage as it was in an earlier sighting, presumably with the company’s developmental attention focused on the model’s running gear.

The Urus is expected to use the VW Group’s MLB Evo platform, which underpins the upcoming Porsche Cayenne, as well as the current Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga. Unlike the Bentayga and the Q7, the Lamborghini Urus will receive a unique 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, which won’t be shared with other marques.

The modular platform also allows for electrification, and thus the Urus is also expected to feature a plug-in hybrid variant later on in its lifecycle. According to our spy photographer sources, the Urus is expected to reach production towards the end of this year, or at the beginning of 2018, priced close to the V10 Huracan.

Within the Lamborghini brand itself, the 4.0 litre V8 is slated for the Urus exclusively, as the marque intends to stay true to its “one car, one engine” ethos. The Urus power plant is expected to be rated at around 650 hp, close to the Huracan Performante‘s peak power output, as told to Automotive News Europe by Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali.
