It’s the heart of the Urus with the soul of a race car driver. The engineers had put the Urus into a weight loss programme which has resulted in toning up from everywhere. The bumpers, roof, wheel arches, diffuser, front splitter and protruding roof spoiler are all made from the lightweight weave; even the bonnet and door panels have extensive carbon fiber usage; all that and the changed suspension set-up has resulted in shedding 47 kilograms. It now weighs 2150 Kgs with 16 Hp more at 666 Hp and the same 850 Nm of mind-boggling torque. Incredible feat. One additional driving mode, the “Rally mode” .

 

It sits below the Corsa mode and now you can actually go drifting with the Urus. More of it later. The “Performante” has a claimed figure of 0-100 kmph in just 3.3 seconds and a 0-200 kmph sprint in 11.5 seconds. It also has made a world record for the fastest SUV at the Pikes Peak course in a record time of 10:32.064! The new rear spoiler, air curtains, and Bonnet outlets have increased the downforces by 38%. It is also 10% more aerodynamic with improved engine compartment cooling. It has an option of 22-inch and 23-inch Pirelli Trofeo R tyres, increasing steering reactiveness and grip marginally.
