Urus, Lamborghini’s super SUV, challenged the highest motorable road in the world to the top of the Umling La pass, in the Himalayan region of India in Jammu and Kashmir, at more than 5,800 meters above sea level. Made by the Border Roads Organization (BRO), it is an engineering company characterized by extreme weather conditions: the minimum temperature along the route varies from -20 ° to -10 ° and the air density is extremely low. The road route is unpredictable as it combines gravel, dirt and asphalted surface, as well as being subject to gusts of wind from 40 to 80 km / h, characteristics that make it one of the most demanding and difficult roads in the world.
The Urus trip took place twice on 8 and 9 October. The twin-turbo V8 engine of the Lamborghini suv has shown all its capabilities and versatility in covering any terrain and adapting to all conditions.
Sharad Agarwal, Head of Lamborghini India, commented: “This is a moment of great pride for us, because Lamborghini brilliantly conquered the highest motorable road in the world, the Umling La pass. When we reached the pass, stand also for only 30 minutes it was extremely difficult, and I wonder how the team managed to complete the course in such extreme weather conditions. During the 87.5km, from Hanle to Umling La, the Urus juggled the driving modes brilliantly Land and Sport reaching over 5800 meters high, even higher than the base camp of Mount Everest. “
Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 650 hp and 850 Nm of torque, accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305 km / h.
