    So disappointing, they are one of the best known brands in the world, not for creating average cars but for creating jaw dropping vehicles, who in the hell let them say yes to that generic looking thing.

    I'm sorry but the Bentley and Alfa look better than that, the LM002 was and is still better looking, is this Audi ownership finally making it's mark on the brand?

    Well, I was always thinking of buying a Range Rover and like the new Velar a lot. But I found its media system a disaster. So - I´ll keep my Cayenne a while...

    I am pretty sure that the Urus will become a success.

    Not shure if anybody should buy this car once out of warranty,1/2 price or not, personally,i would not touch it with a 10 foot pole,unless its fully covered,bumper to bumper. This car is the perfect lease car,if i ever saw one.

    Post Audi I thought the lamborghinis have been pretty reliable right? Gallardo seems, but maybe you are seeing problems with the more recent cars?

    I have never really been a fan of SUVs, but I think the next vehicle I'll buy is a pickup. A few of my friends have F150s with quadcabs and decent options and they are pretty nice inside now. And they can actually do stuff like tow and move boxes/furniture when needed without issue unlike SUVs.

    Yeah, the F150 is an awesome truck... and the Ranger is coming back to America later this year!

    I think you guys will like the Urus once you drive it.... feel, performance, etc... it really is a great SUV.

    True, only car I won't touch out of warranty is a Mclaren. If any high line car has been maintained properly and cared for I'm not afraid to take the chance.

    The driving experience exceeded what I thought it would be, acceleration, braking, build quality, feel... all fantastic. More technology than I am used to in a Lamborghini, but you quickly get used to it. And I really like that the turn signal indicator is the traditional stalk setup. (as opposed to the Huracán)

    I look forward to seeing how the Urus does off the road. I am sure there will be some driving experience events in the works from Automobili Lamborghini!

    Extreme, but still suitable to be a daily driver... the people that have their orders in will be extremely happy once their super suv arrives.

    I do not like white on exotics, because white makes everything look like a Camry or F-150, but it really does work on the Urus. Congrats and enjoy the ride! :)

    Audi did a great job with this Q7 variant. I like it, but knowing what it is undernieth, I could never spend the money on it..

    I was at the factory just like the white Urus and took a test drive in one. Mine should be here by the end of the month and I'm looking forward to it. Finally a lambo I can use everyday to do whatever I want. I like the car and hope it is what I'm expecting. I plan to drive it daily.

    Yes! I have a Range Rover Sport Supercharged, which I love, but the infotainment system absolutely SUCKS! Really bad!

    Mine arrives next month. Going to be a ton of fun...651HP...yes please.

    For those crying, VW is smart as hell for sticking with a common platform across 3-4 brands. All are very different cars (especially URUS for those that actually read up on it).

    70% of Urus buyers have never owned Lambo. Pretty smart move if you ask me into brand introduction. And $$ will finance the car side so they can keep pumping out amazing exotics...with NA, unlike others...cough.

    Can't wait to see what Ferrari SUV is based on...Alfa Stelvio or Ram truck?

    Never seen one in the flesh, but got a report from my buddy in Norway,there is one in his neighborhood, he thought it was a Lexus,at first, his biggest complaint was its to narrow, does not make a wide ,bad ass Lambo statement. As the 002 did back in its day, Pre Hummer H1, wich made anything look wimpy.lol

    LOL. You 'got a report from a buddy in Norway' who saw one driving on the street. Great review.


    You obviously have not driven one.

    Haters going to hate :rolleyes:

    I think from a looks perspective it's a love/hate, remember 488 release--yikes you would have thought world was coming to an end. Do drive one if you get a chance--and make sure to try in Corsa mode.

    Cheers
