The 2023 Lamborghini Urus Performante, which is more aggressive than the standard model, has finally been revealed. It takes on the nomenclature used for more powerful variants of Lamborghini’s Gallardo and Huracan supercars, offering more power, less weight, and better handling than the basic Lamborghini Urus. This was accomplished by acquiring 16 horses (for a total of 657), claiming to have reduced 104 pounds, and switching from air springs to steel springs. It is also more visually appealing.
On the exterior, It has a revised fascia that remains dedicated to absorbing as much atmosphere as possible. Just look at how much of the air intake surface area they take up. It resembles the mouth of a monster. The new bumper design, according to Lamborghini, improves engine cooling, and an air curtain now directs airflow over the front wheels. The hood has been redesigned as well, not just to look cooler with deeper cut lines, but also to be more aerodynamic and lighter. The latter is attributed to its innovative carbon fibre design.
At the rear end, the Performante features a uniquely crafted rear spoiler that boosts downforce by 38%. A set of standard titanium exhaust tips are surrounded by a rear bumper and diffuser that are also composed of carbon fibre. It is almost an inch longer than a conventional Urus thanks to changes to the front and back exteriors.
Lamborghini urus performante interior
Stepping inside, the interior of the Performante is very similar to that of the less expensive model. It debuts a novel hexagonal motif for seat stitching and the regular microsuede cabin materials. The doors, headliner, and seatbacks, among other places, can all have different colour and trim options. The Ad Personam program from Lamborghini, of course, enables consumers to further customize their Urus. Red door knobs and matte carbon-fibre embellishments are two cool options.
Engine, power and performance
The Performante, like the normal Urus, is powered by a 4.0-litre V-8 twin-turbo engine. Both variations produce the same amount of torque (627 pound-feet), while the more aggressive model has 16 more horsepower (657 vs. 641) and the same amount of torque (627 pound-feet). That power is still distributed to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. According to Lamborghini, the Performante outperforms the ordinary Urus from 0 to 62 mph by 0.3 seconds. It also claims to be 1.3 ticks faster from 0 to 124 mph, taking 11.5 seconds.
The Performante’s eight-speed Urus gearbox has been returned, and the all-wheel-drive system has a new centre differential that transfers more torque rearward. In addition, the drivetrain has been recalibrated to work with the addition of a Rally drive mode.
Lightweight 22-inch forged wheels are standard on the Urus Performante, however, 23-inch rollers are also an option. Even more unique is the set of extremely sticky Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires that are offered. According to Lamborghini, they are the first semi-slick tires Pirelli has created for an SUV. The rears of the 22s are 10mm wider than those of the normal Urus and measure 285/40 up front and 325/35 in back.
