Let us paint a word picture for you. It’s 9:00 AM on a Sunday. All is peaceful. Time for little Billy’s soccer game, and you’ve agreed to be the carpool driver. You grab your coffee, open up your garage, and take in the lazy, quiet suburban morning. Then click your key fob and slide onto the buttery leather seats of your Super SUV. You start the engine, and a flock of birds down the street drops out of the sky. The vibration of your twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder reads on the Richter scale at the university 30 miles away. A cease-and-desist letter from your HOA shows up as if by magic in your mailbox. You plow it down as you pull out of the driveway. You are in the Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule, and nothing will stop you as you make the rounds from suburban split-level ranch to suburban split-level ranch, scaring children and small animals with your vehicle’s 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds acceleration, aggressive stance, and top speed of 190 mph.
The Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule doesn’t do glossy, at least not in the primary paint. No, it’s all matte black, accented by strikingly vibrant highlights. Think of it as the Batmobile if Batman was experiencing a midlife crisis (but in a good way). A glossy black spoiler and 23-inch Taigete rims complement the bold lines and crouched panther-like stance.
Go ahead and judge this book by its cover, and when you’ve done that (and you’ve calmed yourself down a bit), take a peek at the interior. It’s more play on the two-tone approach — whatever color scheme you chose for the exterior will be mirrored here. But lest you worry that Mr. Jones next door purchased the same trim as you, Lamborghini provides you with four optional interior configurations.
Yes, this car is hot. But that doesn’t mean you have to sweat while you are in it. Lamborghini’s signature Alcantara seats are ventilated and perforated for maximum comfort. Matte carbon-fiber inserts and black aluminum round out the detail work on the inside.
We challenge you to find a more connected automobile (or at least one that looks this good and has this much horsepower under the hood). The Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule constantly updates you with smart routing, traffic light information, local hazard information, point-of-interest search, real-time traffic information, satellite maps, and tons more. More than we have room for here, actually!
And of course, you get all the security features you’d expect from a luxury automobile: remote lock/unlock, remote horn and light, a car-finding feature, and vehicle status reports. Not to mention an anti-theft alarm notification, valet alert, curfew alert, speed alert, a stolen-vehicle locator, and the Lamborghini Connect Vehicle Tracking System.
And for those long car trips (or to keep the kiddos entertained), you get access to online radio, hybrid radio, a song recognition feature, a WiFi hotspot, and a top-of-the-line smartphone interface system.
Under the Hood
And all of that is great, right? But come on. We know what’s really important to you. Let’s pop the hood and take a look.
Gorgeous. Eight cylinders of twin-turbocharged goodness, with an engine that achieves 640 hp and displaces 3,996 cm³. Woof. You can crank this baby up to 6,600 RPMs, and the four-wheel-drive transmission can dish out 626.93 ft.-lb. of torque at 2,250 to 4,500 RPMs.
Choose your driving dynamic with the ANIMA Selector, which gives you access to three on-road modes and three off-road modes. This is truly a vehicle you take anywhere, from the parking lot of your local grocery store to the valet line of the nearest country club.
At 14 miles to the gallon, this isn’t exactly an economical vehicle. But hey — you knew that already, right?
The Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule will be available in the states in 2021 and will retail for around $218,009, excluding taxes. Okay, a lot of people can’t even afford a house for that much. But…maybe you can?
