The Lamborghini Urus and the BMW X7 M60i are two high-performance luxury SUVs that aren’t exactly on the same ground in terms of overall packages. The Urus is a performance-oriented super SUV, while the BMW X7 M60i is a chic three-row SAV, although it would be wrong to say it’s mediocre in terms of performance.
This drag racing video of Carwow try to compare the two in a drag race. How do they compare on paper, though?
The Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 641 horsepower (471 kilowatts) and 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-meters) of torque. It comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The Urus can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h). It weighs approximately 4,850 pounds.
On the other hand, the BMW X7 M60i is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine that produces 523 hp (385 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque, a detuned version of the engine from the upcoming BMW M5 . It also has an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The X7 M60i can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h). It weighs approximately 5,710 pounds.
In terms of power, the Lamborghini Urus is significantly more powerful than the BMW X7 M60i. The Urus has a higher top speed and faster acceleration. However, the X7 M60i still offers plenty of power and performance for most drivers and is significantly more practical, with more space for passengers and cargo. The kicker here is weight. The Lamborghini Urus is significantly lighter than the BMW X7 M60i by around half a ton.
That said, can the BMW X7 M60i match the Urus in a straight-line contest? The video should provide the answer, but let us know what you think in the comments section below.
