For now we can only speculate on what’s been done to the Urus to yield such dramatic performance, though one tidbit regarding tyres has been revealed. The new Urus will be the first SUV to have a Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyre derivative developed for it. For context, the Trofeo R was an optional aggressive tyre on the McLaren P1 when that was on sale. For the Urus, it’s been developed to deliver high performance in a variety of conditions. As for power, or anything else for that matter? It’s anyone’s guess, though a small bump of 20-50PS on the standard car’s 650PS (478kW) figure shouldn’t be out of the question, given a response is needed to the Aston Martin DBX707.
In terms of design, we can make some inferences, disguised though this prototype is. At the front, we’re seeing simplified vent graphics compared to the original car, which is no bad thing. There also appear to be new vents on the bonnet, adding credence to the power bump theory, though it’s not known if these are functional or styling additions. There are also new vents aft the rear wheels, a revised diffuser and a more aggressive rear spoiler. The finished article will likely have more body lines that are in keeping with the marque’s new design direction, as seen on the new Huracan Technica.
