if you have to ask ...

btw looks like Lamborghini finally realized no one will see any difference anymore if they just put more wings and openings on the car ... so they did sth a little more extreme to grab attention ...

Current Cars:

2019: 720s MSO Atlantic Blue
2010: MB SLS coupe
1957: MB 300SL Roadster
1956: Porsche 356 Conv. A 1600S
+several other Audi Porsche and Mercedes cars

I actually kind of like it. I recently went to the Dirtfish 3 day course and driving rally is an absolute blast!

Is there a car fad that has gotten played out as quickly as these “safari edition” cars? It was cute for like 3 minutes when the first vintage 911 came out like this, but that was pretty much it

Well at least the Porsche 911 and 959 Safari cars and the reproductions which were based on them, were in the first instance made with the specific target to win rallies like the Paris Dakar and the East African Safari ... this lambo however is pure marketing BS ...

well in the current regulation madness I don't think such ideas are really that helpful ... this thing is way too much in your face and that is not a good idea by any company with the current climate etc discussions ...

This reminds me of the Local Motors Rally Fighter.

Is Lamborghini actually bringing this to market ? Doubt there would be any significant number of buyers.

2015 Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe

Highly interested in this automotive exercise and study.
Seems to me a case study of applying the Audi > Porsche > Lamborghini calibrated tech that found itself into the Urus onto a supersport chassis.

Will be interesting to see.

And a smart decision.

Instead of an SUV with Supersport calibration which the market will be saturated with given Ferrari and AM entrants; the opposite - a supersport with SUV suspension and tech.

As for cost, assuming it won't exceed and be easily written off with ~100 Middle Eastern unit sales.
Both money and relationships already exist.
Have a feeling somebody in that region may have already covered expenses and written the checks.

Not mass market.
But corporate exercise funded by a small, specialized, and willing group of customers.

Assumptions, of course. Based on experience therein.

You're not wrong, but it's still cool.
