Malayalam actor Prithviraj just bought a Lamborghini Urus. He opted for a second-hand one and traded in his Lamborghini Huracan. The Urus has become a very popular choice for many famous celebrities. It looks like it’s not the Pearl Capsule Edition which is priced higher than the Urus and comes preconfigured from the factory. Prithviraj also owns an older generation Land Rover Defender 110, Range Rover Vogue, Porsche Cayenne, Tata Safari and a Mini Cooper JCW.

The Huracan that Prithviraj traded was the LP 580-2 variant. Here, 580 stands for 580 hp max power and 2 means power is transferred to the rear wheels only. It was finished in black color and Prithviraj spent a whopping 7 lakh rupees for a ‘fancy registration number’ for the supercar. The license plate read KL 07 CN 1.

When the Huracan went on sale, it was priced at Rs. 3.25 Crores ex showroom. The price can reach up to Rs. 4.07 Crores ex showroom if you opted for the higher power version in which the engine produced 610 hp. All Huracans use a naturally aspirated V10 with a displacement of 5.2 liters. The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission was also shared throughout the lineup. The Huracan has since been replaced by the Huracan EVO. The next generation of the supercar is coming as it is now starting to show its age.

Prithviraj’s Urus is finished in an all-black color with red accents that we can see on the front splitter. It makes sense that the actor traded the Huracan for an Urus. There is a reason that Urus is Lamborghini’s best-selling vehicle and many people buy it. Urus is an SUV with the aggressive styling of a sports car. The SUV body style makes the Urus practical as it can handle our bad road conditions and speed breakers. In addition, it has enough space for four people to sit. On the other hand, at the Huracan the actor has to slow down if the roads were not good and only two people could sit.

Being an SUV doesn’t mean that Urus has to compromise on performance. Despite weighing 2.2 tonnes, the SUV can reach one tonne in just 3.6 seconds and 200 km/h in just 12.8 seconds, while the SUV’s top speed is 305 km/h. The Urus can do this because it is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine. It produces a maximum power of 650 hp and a peak torque of 850 Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with torque converter from ZF. Power is transferred to all four wheels.

The same engine is shared by many other SUVs. For example, Bentley Bentayega, Audi RSQ8, Porsche Cayenne, Audi RS6 Avant, Audi RS7 etc. However, the engine is tuned by each manufacturer according to its needs. The engine therefore feels and reacts differently in each vehicle.

Some other celebrities who own a Lamborghini Urus are Rohit Sharma, Kartik Aaryan, Ranveer Singh, Rohit Shetty, Mukesh Ambani, Junior NTR, Adar Poonawalla, Puneeth Rajkumar and Darshan.
