Italian super sports car maker Lamborghini on Wednesday launched its first super sports utility vehicle 'Urus' in India, priced at Rs 3 crore.

With the launch of a new model, Lamborghini expects its volumes to surge 2.5-3 times, the company said.

"India as a market is playing a very interesting role step by step into the overall sales globally. Urus will change the game for Lamborghini in India in terms of volumes and we expect to grow our volumes 2.5-3 times," Lamborghini General Manager for Asia Pacific Andrea Baldi said.

Stating that India is a strategic market for the company's further growth, Lamborghini India head Sharad Agarwal said given the preference for SUV cars among Indians, "we believe that Urus is going to be an exciting and important product and will open up a completely new segment of customers for us in India."

Under the hood sits a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm. With 162.7 hp/l the Urus claims one of the highest specific power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio at 3,38 kg/hp.

The Urus accelerates from 0-100 kmph in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 kmph in 12.8 seconds and with a top speed of 305 kmph it is the fastest SUV available.

The Italian SUV comes with ANIMA drive selector which controls five driving modes - Strada, Sport, Corsa, Sabbia (sand), Terra (land), and Neve (snow).
