It's okay, as long as they keep making their normal cars, I'll just imagine that this doesn't exist.

Same thing with Porsche.

An "exotic" SUV done right, I suppose.

The only one I'd consider somewhat done correctly is the G55 AMG.

They couldn't make the Estoque but they had the resources to make THIS?

What's with Lamborghini and their CGI images? Same with the Sesto Elemento... no official real images of the car.

As for the look, well... it looks much better than the Porsche/BMW and that Bentley offroader I guess?

My thought exactly... a Lambo sedan makes more sense than this. Guess market polling in the mid-east indicated otherwise.

The sad answer is, their pocketbooks.

I am somewhat fine with this. The LM002 was awesome, and although this was not that, there is precedent.

The G63 and G65 are also fun; just pure stupidness.

In general, I am staunchly anti-SUV.

You know, they could base it off the Panamera.

I call for a name change. Urus spoken out loud sounds too much like a British person saying uterus. Come to think of it, that may not be such a bad decision at all, because this vehicle will probably be purchased mostly by wealthy soccer moms looking to pose.
From a financial standpoint, I guess its a wise decision to broaden the range with a vehicle that offers that. I may not agree with it, but I'm not Lamborghini's bank account. I feel like with a regular Lambo, you still have the excuse of using it on weekends for a track car, but this leaves you with nothing other than I'm rich and I'd like to make sure everyone knows that. I'm slightly disgusted.

Goddamn! For the second time in your existence you make a good point.
When I first read about this, I had the knee-jerk car guy reaction; I was angry. However, as a child I was, and am, a big fan of the LM002 and I'm not sure how to reconcile that with the recent trend of exotic manufacturers adding lifted high-powered bricks and blobs to their lineups, which I am resolutely against.
I still do not like this, in fact it weakens my respect for the LM002, but it makes sense in a weird sort of way.
