A decision on whether or not the Lamborghini Urus will transition from concept to production model has been put on hold once more. A source tells Autocar that Lamborghini's parent company is a bit hesitant on giving the green light on this 2+2 crossover due to a possible downturn for the world’s economy and the unrest in the Middle East.
“We are convinced the Urus can significantly boost global sales, but the financial conditions need to be sound. Right now, there are signs we may be heading for a downturn in the markets due to various factors, including trouble in the Middle East, although this is not reflected in the current sales situation, which puts us ahead of 2013,” the source said.
Now that isn't to say the Urus will get shelved. The source tells Autocar that discussions are still going on with the hope of “a clear view towards eventual production”.
