Those who are fans of the LM002 will notice some design cues of the Urus passed down from the LM002 such as the Y-shaped front air intakes and the hexagonal wheel arches.

This is attributable to the low roof line and its distinctive single line silhouette. Its muscular look is accentuated by features such as the large air intakes and the massive 23" wheels.

With a wheelbase of over three metres, there is ample leg room for all passengers. Certain parts of the interior particularly surrounding the driver were inspired by the LM002 as well as the other current models such as the slim Y design of the dashboard.

There are plenty of options to specify the interior trim but the display vehicle at the launch had a special type of tan leather which gave a rustic appearance and beautifully matched the grio exterior.

It will thrust from 0-100 km/h in a frightening 3.6 seconds on to a top speed of 305 km/h. Despite being an SUV, the superior handling is achieved by a 4WD system with active torque vectoring and 4-wheel steering.

The massive carbon ceramic brakes are fitted to ensure that the car will stop under heavy braking situations whether on track or at high altitude. This article first appeared on hk.asiatatler.com.
