Rapper Badshah buys Lamborghini Urus SUV worth Rs. 3.15 billion
Badshah is now the proud owner of a new Lamborghini Urus. This is his second Urus, the first is finished in Rosso Anteros color.
Indian rapper Badshah has taken delivery of a new Lamborghini Urus. The new SUV is finished in the Neo Noctis paint scheme and gets 22-inch wheels. Urus is the best-selling product that Lamborghini currently has in its lineup. Prices for the Urus start at Rs. 3.15 Crores (ex-showroom) and go up to Rs. 3.43 Crores (ex-showroom) for the Pearl Capsule Edition. Besides Urus, Badshah also owns an Audi Q8 and a Rolls Royce Wraith.
Badshah’s latest car is also his second Lamborghini Urus as he had previously purchased a unit on the second-hand market.
Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This motor produces 650 Ps of maximum power and 850 Nm of maximum torque. It is mated to an 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission sourced from ZF. Power is transmitted to all four wheels.
The Urus’ engine and platform are shared with several other SUVs owned by Volkswagen subsidiaries. Thus, SUVs like Porsche Cayenne, Audi RSQ8 and Bentley Bentayga are based on the same platform. Moreover, the same engine is also used in many vehicles like the Audi RS6 Avant, Porsche Panamera and Bentley Continental GT.
The Urus is the manufacturer’s second SUV after the LM002 launched in the 1980s. The LM002 was a simple, basic and robust SUV, while the Urus is much more sporty, powerful and aggressive. The Urus was launched globally in December 2017 and brought to India in January 2018.
In June, Lamborghini announced that it had produced over 20,000 units of the Urus. Additionally, the manufacturer delivered 200 Urus SUVs to India. Lamborghini also revealed that 80% of Urus buyers are buying a Lamborghini for the first time.
