As on many previous models, Lamborghini teamed up with Pirelli to create custom tires for the Urus Performante. The P Zero Trofeo R is semi slippery and specifically designed to operate in wet and dry conditions as well as high and low temperatures.
Updated front air intakes, which are now black, increase the flow to the engine for more cooling. In addition, carbon-ceramic brakes and a lightweight titanium Akrapovič sport exhaust are now standard equipment. While we haven’t had a chance to drive the Performante yet, Lamborghini says the new steering setup gives the driver more direct feedback, while the rear wheel drives faster to increase turning agility.
The Urus Performante gets the usual Lamborghini trio of driving modes. The “Strada” system dampens the suspension and dampens the engine sound, making the Urus as comfortable as it can be for everyday driving. Sport mode sharpens throttle response, adds a bit of extra steering, and amplifies feedback for more fun on the road. On the Corsa, “active anti-roll bars and maximum damping maintain cornering at high speeds on the track. For this model, Lamborghini has added a new ‘Rally’ option for dirt tracks. The brand says that excessive pumping along with improved anti-roll and damping systems for steel springs should be a must. It enhances the capabilities of the car for drivers keen on tearing up the racetrack.
Overall, this series of improvements should add to the Urus that is faster, louder, and more fun to drive. As soon as we get a chance to get behind the wheel, we’ll report.
