A potential future Lamborghini SUV model has still not been given the green light, according to the company's Asia Pacific general manager, Andrea Baldi. Baldi spoke exclusively with CarAdvice at the Australian dynamic launch of the Lamborghini Huracan at Sydney Motorsport Park this week, where he explained that while SUVs are a top trend right now, timing for a tick of approval for a production version of the Urus still remains unclear as it hasn't yet been approved by the Italian brand's parent company Volkswagen Group. "For us, the matter of convincing the VW Group is a different challenge," Baldi said of the Lamborghini SUV project, which is one of many high-end SUVs currently in the works. "There are a lot of brands – everybody is going in to SUV, except Ferrari maybe – Rolls-Royce, Bentley also, everybody’s announcing SUVs," Baldi said. "But I think nobody is really still expressing what, in 2012, the Urus presented: this kind of sportiveness, this kind of powerful brand, already so sporty, associated with an SUV," he said.
