There are some vehicles that make good 6×6 conversion donors and there are some that don’t.
This Lamborghini Urus 6×6 is the perfect example of the latter.
Pictures of a Lamborghini Urus 6×6 have surfaced online but no detail’s been provided about the conversion.
We don’t know whether that’s a good or bad thing, but it’s left us with a host of questions.
Is it a true 6×6 conversion where the third axle is powered by the engine?
Or, was it simply added to the body to create the dramatic appearance?
Judging by the pictures, the ‘converters’ have made room for the third axle by elongating the roofline.
That, in turn, has created some beasty-looking D-pillars, which throw up an obvious issue – huge blind spots.
Clearly, it’s still a work in progress, as the additional body panels have yet to be color-matched to the original paintwork.
Thankfully, their ‘handywork’ is limited to the rear of the vehicle, as they appear to have left the front untouched.
We’re struggling to make out if it’s a standard Urus or whether it’s an Urus Performante.
If it’s the standard model, it’s powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 making 641 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque.
But, if it’s the Performante, it makes 657 horsepower.
Either way, it’s highly unlikely this Lamborghini Urus 6×6 will match the 0-60 time of under four seconds like the standard model, as it’s carrying so much extra weight.
The thought process behind a 6×6 conversion should be to increase stability, weight distribution, traction, and load capacity over more conventional 4x4s.
Unfortunately, 6x6s aren’t the most nimble of vehicles, and they struggle in tight spaces.
However, in the right setting – like over sand or mud – they’re unmatched.
What it looks like they’ve done is butcher the SUV in an attempt to create a more attention-grabbing Urus.
But they haven’t exactly made it look better, and it’s pretty unlikely it’ll be any good offroad.
Poor Urus should’ve just been left alone.
