The Urus has a 4-litre V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 637 bhp and 850 Nm of torque. It can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed 305 kmph. Its 4WD system gets active torque vectoring and four-wheel steering.
The engine is paired with an automatic eight-speed gearbox and the car is also setup with all-wheel drive and torque vectoring.
A plethora of driving modes tune the car to optimise performance in various different environments.
