Kanye West has taken a security measure out of Trump's playbook.
Kanye is now traveling in a motorcade of three identical stealth Lamborghini Urus SUV's so that people do not know what one he is in.
This is a common tactic used by the secret service to protect the president, as he usually travels in one of three vehicles to disguise which one he is actually located in.
But it's a very expensive strategy. The Lamborghini Urus SUV starts at $200K before customization. And that matte Black paint job that each one has - costs $15,000 each.
Kanye is rolling out this security strategy for his whole family. For example, its being reported that Kanye has also purchased identical Range Rovers for Kim's travel as a measure of protection.
In 2017, the 56-year-old company produced fewer than 3,900 cars globally. (For years before that, total volume had hovered near 2,000.) This year, thanks to the Urus, it expects distribution to reach 8,000.
It’s an easy car to love: With seven drive modes and seating for five, the Urus packs a zero-to-60 miles per hour sprint time of 3.6 seconds. Its 4.0-liter V8 engine gets 641 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, the most of any production SUV today. Top speed is 190 mph.
But the vehicle’s effect goes beyond a bump in company revenue, according to Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s influential head of research and design. “Urus changed completely the perception of Lamborghini in Italy,” he said at his office in Sant’Agata Bolognese during an interview on May 21. “Before Urus, Lamborghini was something really only for a small number of people. Exclusive. And if you have a super sports car like Lamborghini, people think you show off too much of yourself. You would be too flashy … too much.”
Even so, stars ranging from Kylie Jenner and Cardi B to Kanye West proudly display their Lambo SUVs on social media, and wait times for a Urus can run to four months or longer.
