Junior NTR is now a familiar face to people in India. Many would recognize him from the blockbuster Telugu action drama movie RRR, which won the Oscar for Best Song in 2021. Like many actors and actresses in the film industry, Junior NTR is also a car enthusiast and purchased a Lamborghini Urus SUV in 2021. This is not just a regular Urus; he bought the Graphite Capsule Edition, which was launched in 2021. Recently, the SUV was spotted parked on the roadside in Hyderabad, and Car Crazy India shared images of it on their Instagram page. The caption mentions the SUV was spotted in Hyderabad, but the exact location is not specified. The SUV has the registration number TS 09 FT 9999, which was reportedly purchased at an auction for Rs. 17 lakh, which is not surprising considering the amount people have spent on fancy number plates in the past.
Junior NTR was the first customer to purchase the Graphite Capsule edition of the SUV. This special edition of the Urus is offered in Nero Noctis Matte with highlights of Arancio Argos, making it stand out on the roads, even though the Urus is becoming increasingly common. Interestingly, the Lamborghini Urus is the brand’s fastest-selling model in the Indian market and has become one of the fastest-selling models globally from the Italian performance car maker.

Although the picture does not show Junior NTR with the car, in the past, he was seen taking delivery of the SUV from the dealership in Hyderabad. As a special edition, the Graphite Capsule edition is 20 percent more expensive than a regular Urus, which starts at Rs. 3.15 crore ex-showroom. It has blacked-out alloy wheels with red brake calipers, and the wheels are larger, measuring 22 inches compared to the regular Urus’s 21 inches. The special edition version also gets body skirting, tweaked bumpers, and other customizations, which make the car even more expensive.
Unfortunately, the exact specifications of the customizations that Junior NTR opted for his Graphite Capsule Edition Urus are unknown. Junior NTR is not the only actor in India to own a Capsule Edition Urus; Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh bought his Capsule Edition Urus before Junior NTR. However, Ranveer purchased a Pearl Capsule edition that is finished in a shade of candy orange.
The Lamborghini Urus has a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 650 PS and a peak torque of 850 Nm. It has an AWD system and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Urus can go from 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and has a restricted top speed of 305 km/h. The Urus quickly caught the attention of wealthy buyers worldwide, and in India, billionaires like Ambani and Adar Poonawalla have one in their garage. Other Ranveer Singh and Junior NTR, there are other actors in the country who have bought Urus. Malayalam actor Prithviraj bought a used Lamborghini Urus after selling his Huracan. Another Malayalam actor Fahad Faasil also bought a Lamborghini Urus. In Bollywood Kartik Aaryan, Singer & rapper Badshah bought not one but two Lamborghini Urus SUVs.
