The Lamborghini Urus has already become a popular and desirable SUV of the who’s-who of the film fraternity, with celebrities like Ranveer Singh, Kartik Aaryan, Rohit Shetty and Jr NTR being the proud owners of the Urus. However, there is a new Lamborghini Urus in town, and this time, it belongs to an Indian cricketer. And it’s none other than the current captain of the Indian Cricket Team, Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma has recently become a proud owner of a brand new Lamborghini Urus in his hometown Mumbai, which he bought from Lamborghini Mumbai. Pictures by Automobili Ardent show the SUV gets a brilliant looking shade of “Blu Eleos”, which is a shade of dark blue. The entire car, including the front and rear bumpers, is painted in this shade of blue.

Blue happens to be Rohit Sharma’s favourite colour, as this is not the first time he has bought a blue-coloured car. He is already a proud owner of a blue-coloured BMW M5. Given that he is the captain of the Indian Cricket Team and the IPL team of Mumbai Indians, both of which have blue-coloured jerseys for their players, it becomes an even more obvious choice of colour for him.
On the inside, the Lamborghini Urus delivered to Rohit Sharma is personalized with a dual-tone combination of Ross Alala (cherry red) and Nero (black) for the cabin.
In this, while the upper layer of the dashboard and door panels is finished in black, the lower part of the dashboard and door panels and seats are finished in the shade of cherry red. In addition, there is a fine layer of contrast silver running between the dashboard and door panels, which also flows towards the centre console.
The cabin also gets piano black touches on the dashboard and centre console. We must say that it is a very tasteful choice of colour combination for the cabin.
Apart from this new Lamborghini Urus and BMW M5, Rohit Sharma also owns a BMW X3, Toyota Fortuner and his first car ever, a Skoda Laura.
Launched in 2018, the Lamborghini Urus might not be the first-ever SUV from Lamborghini, as that title goes to Lamborghini LM002, which was on sale in the 1980s. However, the Urus is much sportier and aggressive in its looks and performance compared to the bare-basic and rugged LM002.
The Lamborghini Urus is based on the same platform as the other luxury SUVs from the Volkswagen group, like Audi RSQ8, Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne. However, the Urus is the sportiest of the lot.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which powers all these SUVs, is in its most powerful state under the hood of the Urus, with a maximum power output of 650 PS and a peak torque output of 850 Nm. This engine is paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. Prices for the Lamborghini Urus start at Rs 3.15 crore in India.
