For a number of years, manufacturers of premium level automobiles have steered clear of the segment of sport utility vehicles. That seemed to change during the 2003 model year when super luxurious brands began to slip into the segment with a vengeance. Lamborghini introduced the automotive world to its Urus concept, originally, during the 2012 model year and after a lengthy wait, we will soon be introduced to the 2017 Lamborghini Urus. The unique name of the sport utility vehicle was derived from the long extinct ancestor of the modern cow. The bovine that ended their life cycles in the year 1627 were extremely massive, which is ironic given the fact that the Urus will be the largest vehicle in the company’s long standing history. Consumers may recall that the Urus is the second sport utility attempt by Lamborghini. It’s very first was that of the LM002 that saw its end in 1993 after selling a meager 328 models in total.
