In the presence of senior managers from Automobili Lamborghini, Lamborghini Jeddah celebrated the arrival of Lamborghini’s new model, the Lamborghini Urus, the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle, creating a new niche in the luxury segment with this all-new car with benchmarking power, performance, driving dynamics, unparalleled design, luxury and versatility.
Mohammed Sharbatly, CEO of Group, expressed his happiness with this official launch of one of the most prestigious brands in the world. “Once again, SAMACO Automotive emphasizes its leadership in attracting luxury brands and, thanks to the Almighty, we have recently acquired the exclusive dealership of Lamborghini in Saudi Arabia to join our pool of luxury car dealerships on the one hand and to strengthen our strategic partnership with these brands on the other hand,” he said in a speech delivered on this occasion.
“We have invested all our financial capabilities and long-term experience in the management of luxury brands to serve Lamborghini and its customers, both at the level of state-of-the-art centers in Saudi Arabia’s main regions (Riyadh, Jeddah and the Eastern Province), as well as after-sale services, maintenance and customer care centers. You will notice this attention, God willing,” he added.
“We are excited to be here in Jeddah for the first of a series of launches of our Super SUV, the Lamborghini Urus, in the Kindom of Saudi Arabia. Having recently appointed Samaco as our new partner in the Kingdom, we look forward to celebrating this milestone in Lamborghini history and this new partnership in the Middle East.” said Andrea Baldi, CEO of EMEA, Automobili Lamborghini
The Lamborghini Urus features a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm, maximum 6,800 rpm, and 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,250 rpm. With 162.7 hp/l the Urus claims one of the highest specific power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio at 3,38 kg/hp.
The Lamborghini Urus accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12,8 seconds and with a top speed of 305 km/h it is the fastest SUV available.
Its low-line coupé styling and commanding road position belie the very comfortable ride, higher ground clearance, and luxurious space within together with the latest technologies. The Urus provides easy driving in the city, maximum comfort during long journeys, thrilling super sports car dynamics on the road and track, and versatile off-road abilities in a range of environments. The Lamborghini Urus has a dual personality: it is multi-dimensional. It can be specified to be as sporty or as elegant as the owner wishes, and can equally be used as a daily luxury drive or provide an exhilarating super sports experience.
The first customer deliveries of the Lamborghini Urus in the Kingdom will take place from September 2018.
