Lamborghini has made no secret of the fact that it plans to officially unveil a new high-performance crossover at the upcoming 2012 Beijing Motor Show. We now have our first idea of what the vehicle looks like thanks to the company's invitation to the show.

The invite shows a line drawing of the crossover's profile, though the text mentions no details about the beast. Rumors are already swirling, with reports indicating that the vehicle will be called the Urus when it debuts. As you may recall, Lamborghini recently trademarked Deimos as well.

What will the high-riding Lamborghini bring to the table? Details are scarce so far, though a tweaked version of the same V10 that feeds the Gallardo may wind up behind the headlights. With around 584 horsepower and an MSRP of around $200,000, the machine will be exclusive no matter what it's called.

      My hopes for an LM002 successing offroad beast are now nearly completely destroyed...I HATE crossovers with no offroad capability.

      $90,000 more than a Cayenne Turbo for a slightly faster Cayenne Turbo? They should stick the V12 in it for that price.

      Lamborghini needs to be profitable and strong so they can continue to bring us excellant sports exotics. I don't see the problem with an exotic SUV. everyone cried when Porsche did it, but the reality is that the Cayenne is it's #1 seller and Porsche is continuing to get stronger as they release a smaller Macan soon.... I don't like SUV's either, but I won't buy one. At lease they don't make a $385,000 Ferrari front engine hatchback thing that is far more blasphemous to me.

      Huh? The italians are copying the japanese? Look at the rear pillar. Doesn't that look like Infiniti's new styling?

      yay , a Lambo Cayenne ! ...i mean Urus ...sounds stupid, not even an added "Superveloce" can save that name.

      Proportions are decent...or however good a tall bloated crossover can muster. I hope it still has a shot at being a rugged offroad dune jumper, even with this style. I can imagine tons of ground clearance and knobbly tires spun by that Gallardo engine. Unfortunately, I have a feeling it's going to have 22" wheels with wide summer tires while having virtually no usable ground clearance and thus about as good offroad as a sportscar, despite having the mass and proportions of an SUV. I see no point in a tall expensive crossover or SUV that sacrifices comfort, terrain worthiness, and utility in pursuing on road performance and "stance". I know a small minority of Lamborghinis sold ever see a racetrack, but who in their right mind would turn up to a circuit in a CUV? Especially one that costs $200k and has a Lamborghini badge, but would still look like an elephant attempting ballet? I'm not saying dont make this, because that falls on deaf ears and it will bring in cash, but I hope they realize nobody is going to track it and would prefer at least a CUV (crossover UTILITY vehicle) not CSV (crossover STUPID vehicle). And if Lamborghini finds it hard to justify an offroad capable usable vehicle as it goes against the ethos, consider that it's already thrown down the drain with making a (very rich) mommymobile. And that in Lamborghini's history there was a certain LM002 greatness, and the company started with a man building tractors.

      Hopefully this is a bit more successful than the prior revolution in China, responsible for 30 million+ brutal deaths. Tastefully worded, Lamborghini.

      I wonder who EXACTLY lambo is expecting to buy this. Bimbo gold-digging female companions of tasteless Persians? Trophy wives of tacky lottery winning trailer trash? Would ANY male drive this thing willingly? I honestly think everyone on this site would prefer a lambo car (or even aLM002) to this. Actually, I bet more autobloggers would prefer my idea of an electric-heavy hybrid lambo car (like a porsche 918spyder) to this thing. Are the Chinese, Indians, Brazilians, Russians and other 'newer' markets really capable of buying enough of these to justify building this? Huge sigh!!!!! It's just too bad. :(

      WTF Lamborghini?!

      For some reason, that name keeps pulling up the word "anus" in my mind. They should have picked a way more exotic and fitting name.

        Upon further intensive thinking, Urine + Anus = URUS.

          You certainly have put more time on thinking the name than Lambo's marketing team.
