Power and performance

Powering the Urus is a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine which delivers 650bhp and 850Nm of torque.

This allows it to go from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds and 0-124 mph in 12.8 seconds and open to a top speed of 189 mph. While the Urus will be beaten in from 0-60mph by the Model X it trumps it, and any other SUV, with its top speed.

The engine is paired with an automatic eight-speed gearbox and the car is also setup with all-wheel drive and torque vectoring. A plethora of driving modes tune the car to optimise performance in various different environments.

These are: STRADA, TERRA (off-road) and NEVE (snow), SABBIA (sand), SPORT and CORSA.

Footage from one of the teasers that the Italian car manufacturer revealed last month shows the SUVs proficiency in challenging off-road conditions. A range of level of safety, security and driving assistance systems have also been added to the car which includes High Beam Assistant.
