The 2021 Lamborghini Urus Superleggera is the performance SUV with specs above all the limits. This vehicle is already one of the most powerful units in the class. However, the Italian carmaker is preparing a model that will respond to the new Ferrari Purosangue, which should arrive late next year or in 2022. The Superleggera nameplate is not confirmed yet. Some sources are mentioning another two names Lambo is already using – Performante and SV. Everything should be clear in the last quarter of this year.
All we know about the 2021 Lamborghini Urus Superleggera is coming from a few rumors and render photos. The base SUV will receive upgrades which will make it more aggressive. Also, engineers could tune the existing drivetrain to deliver more power. The bad thing about this project is the price, which is already very high for the standard offer. On the other hand, Urus will leave the competition in the dust. We assume the new vehicle is after Tesla Model X and its 0-60 time. However, it is hard to achieve 2.6 seconds available with a Ludicrous package for the electric SUV.
