Lamborghini Urus unlocks the world’s highest driveable road in India
The Super SUV Urus twice traverses the Umling La Pass: at 19,300 ft, the highest point reached by a Lamborghini
India, 11 October 2021 – The Lamborghini Urus has unlocked the highest drivable road in the world at the top of the Umling La Pass in India’s Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, which is 19,300ft above sea level. Built by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), the Umling La Pass is a remarkable feat of engineering carried out by the BRO under weather conditions where the minimum temperature ranges from -20 degrees to -10 degrees.
The V8 twin-turbocharged engine of the Urus displayed its capabilities in unlocking the highest drivable road in the world. Mr. Sharad Agarwal, Head of Lamborghini India said, “This is a proud moment for Lamborghini as the Urus unlocks the pinnacle of high-altitude driving across the Umling La Pass. I would like to congratulate the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) and its team on their remarkable achievement. When we reached Umling La Pass, even standing for 30 minutes was extremely difficult, and how the team completed the road in such extreme weather conditions is unimaginable. During the 87.5 km-long drive from Hanle to Umling La, Urus performed brilliantly under the Terra and Sport driving modes on a road that sits higher than the base camp of Mount Everest.”
