What an ice-cold run from the hot Urus.
Top speed runs aren’t an easy feat. Needless to say, the persons behind the wheel of these record-setting runs need ice-cold veins in order to stay focused as they approach inhumane speeds.
For the Lamborghini Urus, this came quite literally with the vehicle’s latest feat in Russia. In an event organized by LAV-racing company, Lamborghini has set a speed record on ice, marking 298 kilometers per hour (185 miles per hour). This is the first time that the Italian company has participated in the Days of Speed – an annual festival dedicated to setting record speeds on ice.
The event took place at Lake Baikal in Russia, regarded as the largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world. The Urus actually recorded a faster speed during practice runs, clocking in 302 km/h (187.6 mph). The Super SUV also set a 1,000-meter record at 114 km/h (71 mph) average speed from a standing start. These feats happened despite the obvious precarious conditions and the fact that there’s already significant warming of the ice during the run. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
