Lamborghini, the renowned Italian automaker, has recently introduced the Urus Performante Special Edition. This exclusive version is dedicated to the Essenza SCV12 and is reserved solely for owners of the track-only hypercar. Limited to just 40 units, the creation of this Super SUV was overseen by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam department. It offers each Essenza SCV12 customer the opportunity to configure their own unique example of the Urus Performante, featuring a bespoke design and racing-inspired details for maximum sportiness.
Unveiling a Distinctive Design
The Urus Special Edition stands out with its exclusive character, highlighted by the abundant use of exposed carbon fiber elements. These elements can be finished in either glossy or matte, matching the customer’s preference for the bodywork treatment. Not only does the carbon fiber engine hood and roof showcase this material, but the rocker covers, mirrors, and carbon fiber frame with the Lamborghini logo set between the rear light clusters also feature the same distinctive design.
A Personalized Touch
To emphasize the track-oriented nature of the vehicle, Lamborghini’s Centro Stile designers have created a dedicated Ad Personam livery. This livery offers color combinations tailored to specific customer requests, with each unit’s paintwork completed in Lamborghini’s in-house paint shop. The lower part of the car is black, complemented by a contrasting color line that runs along the roof arch, further accentuating the car’s silhouette.
The body colors and livery are exclusively chosen in collaboration with each customer, echoing the design of their Essenza SCV12 cars, including the distinctive number painted on the doors. Additionally, every example comes equipped with 23″ high gloss black wheels and black calipers as standard, although customers can freely select their preferred wheel and caliper type and colors from the available options.
A Masterpiece of Design
“The Lamborghini Urus SC-V12 Edition boasts the most expressive and intricate livery we have ever created,” commented Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini Head of Design. “It is exclusively linked and personally designed for each of the 40 customers of the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12. The Urus SCV12’s livery features a black lower part to deliver an even sportier appearance, while the exterior color is directly connected to the exclusive color of the Essenza SC-V12, with a colored pinstripe that artistically connects the front, side, and rear. The result is a unique, vibrant, and limited series of Urus models.”
The cabin of the Urus Performante Special Edition features exclusive Nero Cosmus (black) Alcantara upholstery with leather details, carbon fiber decorations with a choice of glossy or matte finish, black anodized aluminum elements, and a Dark Package, except for the contrasting red door handles. The carbon fiber details extend to a decorative element on the passenger side of the dashboard and the kick plates, which proudly display the Essenza SCV12 logo and silhouette.
To add an extra touch of distinction, the trim includes two celebratory carbon fiber plaques in the passenger compartment. One plaque showcases the Lamborghini 60th Anniversary logo, while the other displays either the vehicle number or the customer’s name.
The Urus Performante is a force to be reckoned with, thanks to its twin-turbo V8 engine. With a remarkable power output of 666 CV and a maximum torque of 850 Nm, it delivers exhilarating performance on the road. The outstanding weight-to-power ratio and meticulously engineered aerodynamics further enhance its capabilities, ensuring an unforgettable driving experience.
Impressive Acceleration and Top Speed
The Urus Performante accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.3 seconds, showcasing its impressive agility and power. Its acceleration is relentless, pushing you back into the seat as you surge forward with breathtaking speed. But the performance doesn’t stop there. This Super SUV has a top speed of 306 km/h, allowing you to conquer both the highways and the racetrack with ease.
Pikes Peak Record Holder
The exceptional performance of the Urus Performante was demonstrated when it set a record in the production SUV category at the renowned Pikes Peak International Hill Climb course. Scaling the heights to an altitude of 4,302 meters, this formidable machine crossed the finish line in an astounding time of 10 minutes and 32.064 seconds, surpassing the previous record by more than 17 seconds. It showcases the immense power and agility that the Urus Performante possesses, solidifying its status as a high-performance marvel.
Essenza SCV12: Born for the Track
Unveiled in July 2020, the Essenza SCV12 was purpose-built for track use, incorporating engineering solutions derived from Lamborghini’s racing expertise. Equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 engine, borrowed from the legendary Aventador, the Essenza SCV12 delivers over 830 CV of power. The addition of dynamic supercharging at high speeds further enhances its performance capabilities. Its six-speed load-bearing gearbox, positioned transversely on the rear axle, combined with rear-wheel drive, ensures exceptional compactness, structural integrity, and enhanced torsional stiffness.
Exceptional Weight-to-Power Ratio
The Essenza SCV12 achieves an extraordinary weight-to-power ratio of 1.66 kg/CV.
