After Nixing Hybrid Rumors Lamborghini Urus SUV Could be Charged with Battery

Lamborghini Urus SUV

Lamborghini has rocked an SUV in the past–think way back to the LM001 and LM002. For the past two years teasers of the potential Lamborghini Urus SUV have been out, leaving all to grapple at a comeback and also to wonder what powertrain it would pack upon release. Those questions remain unanswered, but with increasing speculation of a hybrid Lamborghini SUV on the horizon.

Taking in the big picture, luxury SUVs have made a healthy comeback and hybrids are now increasing in popularity. It then makes perfect sense that a hybrid SUV would not be a terribly risky move on the part of the Raging Bull, so what exactly is the holdup? Tentative 2017 production for the Urus has been released, but things like that often change. read more

Is the W70 Concept Just a LaFerrari Copy?

W70 concept

The burning question regarding the recently revealed W70 concept is this: Is it ok to pretty much copy the design cues of a big brand, switch up the engine and attempt to sell it? Recently we covered the LandWind X7 from China that may as well be a carbon copy of the Range Rover Evoque. The other little number making headlines is the W70 concept, which closely mimics the LaFerrari. Has integrity been replaced by the unimaginative, and is there an emerging market for high-end forgeries?

This is the accused: A LaFerrari forgery that has the automotive circuits chirping online. Some love it and others hate it–either way, the brave company has certainly attracted attention. read more
