Earlier appearance of the name
Lamborghini had trademarked the name "Urus" before the introduction of the Lamborghini Estoque at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, and automotive news blogs Jalopnik and Autoblog believed that the name would be applied to what was eventually found to be the Estoque.
In September 2013, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed that the Urus will go into production, making it the company's first SUV since the LM002. Winkelmann stated that sales potential is estimated at 3,000 per year.
