Lamborghini Urus SUV concept (2012) leaks early

Published: 20 April 2012

Lamborghini's SUV show car, the Urus 4x4 concept, has leaked early ahead of its planned debut at the 2012 Beijing auto show this weekend.

These leaked photos of the Lamborghini Urus reveal a swooping, coupe-alike crossover - marrying the style of a Lamborghini Reventon or supercar with the stance of an SUV.

Lamborghini Urus: the leaked images

We'd been expecting a sleek crossover, especially since yesterday's media invitation revealed an outline sketch of the Urus.

But now we can see a high-riding, low-roof crossover complete with four doors. It's the most practical Lambo since the 1980s LM002.

Lamborghini has retained its sense of adventure, though, with a retina-grabbing orange paint job and dramatic bodywork - just check out how the rear wheelarch swells and ripples thought the back door.

What else do we know about the Lambo Urus SUV?

Not a huge amount as yet. These slightly grainy scans of the Urus are circulating online, but for the full story on the Urus 4x4, you'll have to return to CAR Online on Sunday 22 April 2012.

We'll have the full set of official photos and the full technical story on the Lambo crossover this weekend.
