Lamborghini Urus Matches Dodge Hellcat For Speed On Both Straights & Corners

The new Lamborghini Urus can match the Dodge Challenger Hellcat for speed.

The all-new Lamborghini Urus is an absolute beast in its own right and can apparently run with the best of them.

The Italian SUV was unveiled in 2017, with production kicking off a little under a year ago. And, while it's obviously bigger than the traditional two-door car, the Urus is capable of doing just as well.

The Car and Driver crew recently put the SUV through a demanding performance test and it came up winning. The results from said tests have gone on to confirm that the Urus is not only as good as initially thought but actually better.

The Urus was able to hit 30 mph (48 km/h) in an incredible 1.3 seconds, 40 mph (64 km/h) in 1.8 seconds, 50 mph (80 km/h) in 2.4 seconds and 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds during the test carried out by Car and Driver.

When put through the 100 mph (160 km/h) test, it only took 7.6 seconds to reach the mark.

According to the graph from reddit seen below, that is actually the exact time it would take the Dodge Challenger Hellcat to reach 100mph.

The Urus was also able to run the quarter mile in 11.4 at 121 mph (194 km/h) seconds on an open drag strip. That actually makes it the fastest SUV to be tested by Car and Driver, which puts it ahead of the Bentley Bentayga, Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB and Maserati Levante GTS.

None of the above were able to go the distance at a time below the 12-second mark.

The Urus was not only able to prove itself driving in a straight line. The Italian model recorded a 1.02 g figure while being tested on a 300-foot skid pad. Such numbers usually belong to supercars such as the Audi R8 V10 Plus,

As for the braking system, the Urus is pretty efficient in that department as well. Despite its weight - 5314 lbs (2410 kg) - the SUV can brake at 70 mph  (112 km/h) and come to a complete halt at just 149 feet.
