Lamborghini makes a truck? WHAAAAAAAAA? While this is kind of old news in case you have been living under a rock, yes Lamborghini now makes the world’s first super SUV meaning a very large, powerful, and savage extinct bovine animal – more affectionately known and aptly named simply the Urus.
Power and size are this cars strong suits but don’t let that quarantine heft fool you. This thing will easily keep up with the RWD Lamborghini Huracan Evo and still be carrying an additional 2 or 3 people and even some luggage. Boasting a rambunctious and hearty 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine hand built by the Germans over at Porsche, producing 641 hp and 850 Nm of torque, Urus accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 190 mph- which is pretty physics defying being that it is a 5k lb behemoth. Simply put I fell in love. I never thought it would be this good…. but OH IS IT GOOD.
Never ever did I imagine Lamborghini would make another truck in its’ history and never did I imagine it could have so much power, be so raw, visceral, capable, yet docile and comfortable. It really is the full package: Exotic, rare, form follows function, loud, quiet, capable and just flat out an all around great car.
With clean lines and a heart and soul all it’s own I wondered where would I park this thing at night when we both needed to refuel for the next day of adventures? So I headed to Lamborghini Newport Beach kidnapped my friend Mathew Chis(@matchu421) and we made the trek albeit quite quickly to my favorite home to see how they paired. If you have been following me for a while you would have read about the Marapata house. Much like the Urus it has clean beautiful modern lines, hits all the right points, and literally has a soul of its’ own.
Pulling up to the Marapata house with its 4 beds, 6 bathrooms and boasting just under 5,400 sq ft of living space this house is everything you could want in a contemporary home that houses your daily beasts. Everything just felt right. The car and the home just fit. Both containing cutting edge design, pushing the envelope, challenging the status quo on what we think should be and can be done. Having all of the accoutrements necessary of a car and house of this caliber having this pair will open doors you never thought possible, shift your mindset and set you up to push past all your goals with ease. It is as if you are living in and with works of art- that you can show off with pride, humility, and an air of confidence. These are pieces you can start your journey alone and grow. Whether it be in finances, more cars, dreams, family; they are built on platforms that expect and encourage you to have growth in whatever aspect you desire. If this is in fact what dreams are made of; then welcome to your dream. Marapata is priced currently at $7,975,000 and the Urus starts from $207,326.
