190-mph Lamborghini Urus hit 185 mph to set a new record speed on ice at Russia’s frozen lake Baikal.
It breaks the record of 174 mph (280 kph) set by the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in 2019 by 11 mph (18 kph).
The Lamborghini Urus is the fastest SUV on the planet just behind the Bentley Bentayga Speed.
This record is 11 mph (18 kph) faster than the top speed of 174 mph (280 kph) set by the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk in 2019.
In addition to the top-speed, the super SUV also clocked an average speed of 70.8 mph (114 kph) over one kilometer (0.62 miles) from a standing start to set a second record.
This new record also broke the one set by Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which reportedly reach an average speed of “more than 62 mph (100 kph)”.
For the Baikal run, which was supervised by the FIA and the Russian Automobile Federation, Lamborghini used a regular production Urus SUV. It is powered by a 641-hp 4.0-liter V8 engine.
The Lamborghini Urus, with an official top speed rating of 190 mph (305 kph), reportedly reached 187.8 mph (302 kph) during practice runs on the ice.
Konstantin Sychev, the Head of Lamborghini Eastern Europe and CIS, said :
“Lamborghini always sets ambitious and bold goals, reinforcing the unparalelled performance benchmarks we set for our products and endorsing the innate innovation and technical prowess of our super sports cars,”
“This extreme challenge has once again proven that the Urus Super SUV delivers the inherent performance expected of a Lamborghini in terms of acceleration and top speed as well as handling, to unlock any road: be it a highway, off-road route or even ice. We are excited to see the Urus’ official results published.”
The Lamborghini Urus is one of the quickest SUVs in the market, the second fastest to be precise, just behind the Bentley Bentayga Speed.
Urus can hit 62 mph (100 kph) from a standing start in just 3.6 seconds.
This new record comes a week after news outlet Car Advice reported that Lamborghini was done chasing 0-60mph and top speed records. It added that the Italian sports car maker is now focusing on handling.
