This Lamborghini Urus ‘Arctic Truck’ Puts World’s Quickest SUV on Ice

Aside from being the world’s quickest SUV (we said quickest, Bentley), the Lamborghini Urus is a serious, performance-minded AWD vehicle that Maxim has already tested in the Alps. But Mexican graphic designer Abimelec Arellano has a vision for Lambo’s first ute as a pure ice-breaking warrior. 

We were recently introduced to Arellano’s work when his Rolls-Royce Cullinan-based arctic exploration SUV began making the rounds. He’s since designed the Urus in a similar spec that’s also inspired by builds from UK-based customizer Arctic Trucks. 

“The Urus still looks right at home with big balloon tires ready to tackle the snow. This has a Lamborghini Countach inspired color theme, with bronze wheels, red paint and tan leather interior,” Arellano captioned an Instagram gallery spotlighting his creation.  

“A roof rack holds a couple fuel cans and a spare tire, and LM002 inspired fender flares house the massive wheel & tire combo. The Urus is one of the fastest SUVs for sale today, so I think this would make exploring the pole rather interesting.”

No change was mentioned regarding the Urus’ record-setting 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, which produces 641 horsepower to shoot the 4×4 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds on its way to 190 mph. Certainly more oomph than necessitated by frozen terrain. 

Arellano’s imagination extends far past the wintery realms and roided-out luxury SUVs. 

Perhaps inspired by the recent sale of David Hasselhoff’s personal K.I.T.T. car of Knight Rider lore, the artist also rendered the “HELLKITT,” i.e. a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with Dodge’s 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 embedded in its famous long nose. 

Wilder yet is this Firebird x Ferrari F40 mashup, a vehicle that will absolutely never exist but makes for pure car porn. 

Keep ’em coming, Abimelec.
