It’s perhaps a little late for Lamborghini to be promoting the Urus considering that it entered production nearly three years ago, but they nevertheless did just that.

The clip shows the Italian super SUV in all kinds of environments, from the racetrack to the wilderness of Russia and, ultimately, the city center, demonstrating its versatility.

“When you can unlock any road, the world has no limit. It becomes something unique, something only Urus can make you feel that way”, the automaker noted in the video description. “With its ANIMA Selector, it doesn’t matter where you are: in the city, among nature or on the racetrack. The experience you’ll get is unbelievable.”

Priced from over $220,000 in the United States for the new model year, the Urus is Lamborghini’s second high-rider, after the LM002 of the mid-’80s/early ’90s. It shares its construction with other flagship SUVs made by the Volkswagen Group, including the Audi Q7 and Q8, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and VW Touareg, although it boasts exclusive bodywork, interior and mechanicals.

Described by Lamborghini as “the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle in the world to merge the soul of a super sports car with the functionality of an SUV”, the Urus is powered by a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that develops 641 HP and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. It needs just 3.6 seconds to hit the 62 mph (100 km/h) mark from a standstill and will keep pushing all the way up to 190 mph (305 km/h).

 


Loujain al-Hathloul, a Saudi activist who fought to bring the women of her country the right to drive, has been sentenced to five years and eight months in prison. The sentence was handed down by a special terrorism court and the charges are related to her activist efforts.

According to Sabq, prosecutors were seeking a 20-year sentence. Al-Hathloul was charged with using the internet to promote an external agenda in the Saudi Kingdom, contacting foreign agents, and seeking to change the basic system of governance in Saudi Arabia.

Ironically, her efforts, along with those of other activists, succeeded in achieving that change. Just a month after she and 10 other women’s rights activists were arrested in 2018, Saudi Arabia lifted the ban on women driving.

Al-Hathloul has been in custody since her arrest in 2018. Although that time will be counted against her sentence, her family has alleged that she has been subjected to torture and inhumane conditions while in prison. Following her release, she faces three years of probation and a five-year travel ban.

Her activism started in 2013 and included posting videos with her hair and face uncovered and driving from the airport in Riyadh to her home. She was also arrested and held for 73 days in 2014 for attempting to drive into Saudi Arabia from the United Arab Emirates.

Unfortunately, although it is now legal for women to drive in the country, it is still difficult. According to Gulf News, a UAE outlet, there are few driving schools for women in Saudi Arabia and women are charged more than twice as much as men for lessons.

According to the Saudi government, 70,000 women hold a license in the country, which has a population of 34 million.

Aspark introduced the Owl in 2019, but the model is now on sale in North America and Europe “through its network of prestigious dealers.”

That being said, the network is pretty small as the company only listed dealerships in Beure, France and Miami, Florida. However, Aspark has opened a showroom in Osaka, Japan and suggested more dealers will be added in the coming weeks.

So what makes the Owl so special? It’s claimed to be the fastest accelerating car in the world as it can run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 1.72 seconds.

In order to achieve that impressive feat, the model is equipped with four electric motors that produce a combined output of 1,985 hp (1,480 kW / 2,012 PS) and 1,475 lb-ft (2,000 Nm) of torque. They’re powered by a 64 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which gives the Owl a range of up to 280 miles (450 km) in the NEDC and a claimed top speed of 249 mph (400 km/h).

Besides the high-performance powertrain, the Owl has a carbon fiber monocoque and a carbon fiber body. The model also sports active aerodynamics and a carbon ceramic braking system with ten-piston calipers up front.

The Owl is already in production and is being built in collaboration with Italy’s Manifattura Automobili Torino, which specializes in producing one-off and limited production vehicles. Speaking of which, only 50 Owls will be built and pricing starts at €2.9 ($3.5 / £2.6) million.
