When the Lamborghini Urus leaves the factory gates in Sant'Agata you receive a 650hp twin-turbo V8 powered Super SUV, but for some people, that just isn't enough ... in that case Novitec has come up with the perfect solution: a power increase to 782hp at 6,200rpm and a massive 1,032 Nm of torque as low as 2,900 rpm ... those are massive figures.
German-based Novitec tuner is already famous for their aero and tuning packages for the Lamborghini Huracan and Aventador, but now they also offer some very interesting items for what might become the most popular Raging Bull ever ... the Urus, which Lamborghini themselves already call the Super SUV, Novitec makes it even more 'Super' with both aero and engine tuning.
You can start with the simple plug-and-play N-TRONIC modules, one for each cylinder bank, that change the engine electronics by remapping the injection, boost pressure control and ignition ... add the new high-performance exhaust system, and go for the level three performance upgrade to reach 782hp, resulting in acceleration figures of 3.3 seconds to reach 100 Km/h from a standstill and a top speed of 310 Km/h.
Now we all know looks matter, so Novitec Torado created the Esteso widebody aero kit for the Lamborghini Urus, a 14-part collection of PUR-Rim in OEM quality that makes fitting them as easy as possible with a perfect paint finish to combine with the original parts from the factory.
The large Esteso fenders add 10 cm to front of the Urus and an impressive 12 cm at the rear, making the Super SUV measure 213 cm wide in total, making it 10cm wider than the Aventador at 203 cm (without the mirrors), new Novitec side sills connect the front and rear wheel arches and make the Urus look even lower ... the panels on the production front fenders and side mirrors can be replaced by clear carbon fiber parts from Novitec.
A new Esteso front spoiler is fitted to match the wider wheel arches while most of the standard, black production parts are again replaced by clear carbon fiber Novitec items, probably the most impressive part of this kit is the new engine cover that shows a vented look, either available in clear composite look or in a partly paintable and partly carbon fiber section ... Novitec can do a more standard carbon fiber finish or the new Forged Composite version.
The rear bumper of the Lamborghini Urus gets a few flares at either side to merge with the 12 cm wider wheel arches while the lower diffuser is replaced by a Novitec item too, four rectangular exhaust tips complete the look, available in polished stainless finish or matte black ... and what's even better, these tips can be fitted to the factory original exhaust or the high-performance one offered by Novitec.
To complete the Esteso aero kit you have not one, but two wings for the rear, one to be fitted as an extension of the roof on the Urus while the second one is fitted to the hatch underneath the rear windows ... both wings are finished in clear carbon fiber and can also be fitted on a factory Urus without the wider wheel arches.
Novitec reached out to Vossen to create a bespoke wheel for their Urus Esteso, the NL4 forged alloy wheels measure 10.5x23 up front and 12x23 at the rear, to be fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tires in 285/35R23 and 325/30R23 respectively, in a six-spoke design with a center cap that mimics a center-lock screw ... these wheels are available in 72 different colors, smooth, brushed or polished, and can also be fitted without the wider fenders.
With a widebody kit, stunning wheels and a power increase you just need a lowered suspension too, and Novitec offers a control module to lower the original adaptive air suspension by 25mm, making this Super SUV ride lower to the ground, even with massive 23-inch wheels mounted.
