New for 2019, the Lamborghini Urus sport-utility vehicle is a departure from the Sant’Agata Bolognese automaker’s sports car line, but it’s not the company’s first SUV. That distinction goes to the outrageous “Rambo Lambo” LM002 from the late 1980’s and early ‘90’s.
The Urus is arguably the brand’s only model that can legitimately be used as a daily driver, not to mention a soccer game carpooler. It’s powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that drives all four wheels with 650 galloping horses.
The Urus can be dressed up with wheel upgrades as pricey as $5,051, with black painted brake calipers at $1,137; various custom leather treatments cost $2,526. A bundled suite of driver-assist safety systems (most of which are standard on a Toyota Corolla) with a head-up display goes for $6,313. A panoramic sunroof is $2,778, while heat-reflected windshield glass is $903. A Bang & Olufsen audio system is at $6,313. A four-seat configuration goes for $3,788, while heated and ventilated front seats cost $3,157, and if you want the rear seat heated it’s another $631. A hands-free tailgate is $827. There’s also multiple interior and exterior custom trim items.
Lamborghini Centenario Coupe and Roadster
Base Price: $1,900,000
The absolutely aerodynamic Centenario was launched at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show to celebrate the 100th anniversary of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth. Offered in coupe and roadster variants, it’s based on the Aventador S Coupe, with the body and platform built entirely of carbon fiber.
Both versions pack a 770-horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine that enables a 2.8-second sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph), with rear-wheel steering and a race-ready suspension enabling quick cornering abilities.
Production was limited to 20 coupes and 20 roadsters, and all were snapped up quickly. These are the original MSRPs; the few used models that have since been listed go for considerably more money.
As for options, buyers could choose from a painted or raw carbon fiber exterior with the interior able to be custom finished to each Centenario buyer’s specification.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Lamborghini does without the driver-assistance technology that less extraordinary cars offer. For more information about the Aventador’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites.

The Lamborghini Aventador is the newest Lamboroghini model and was launched in 2014. Experience the V12 engine which makes this model one of the fastest and most powerful models yet. Driving it isn’t half bad, either! Pushrod suspension with double wishbones a bellcrank is used to help manage turns and making cruising particularly fun. The carbon fiber frame makes the car especially dynamic. The car comes in coupe and roadster body styles. The base price of a new Aventador is $393,695.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
In typical Lamborghini fashion, every Aventador supports a set of scissor doors that swing open. The low-slung interior is showing its age, but it can be fitted with a variety of premium materials and personalized options. The cabin won’t hold many small items, and luggage space is limited. The dashboard features a digital gauge cluster that changes its layout whenever you select a new drive mode—Strada, Sport, and Corsa; Ego mode allows you to personalize the settings for powertrain, steering, and suspension.

The car has been designed to offer the widest possible range of customizations: from the exterior, which can be configured in fully exposed carbon fiber, with custom colors, shaded paintwork and specific liveries; to the interior, with special trim and an infinite number of combinations of colors and materials. An innovative “touch and feel” leather is also available, specially developed for the Sián FKP 37, which is extremely pleasant to the touch.
