Kanye West just bought a new car the 2019 Lamborghini Urus SUV. The rapper/fashion designer was spotted in Los Angeles yesterday, hopping into his new ride.
Kanye loves Lamborghini's, His other daily driver car is a $600,000 Lamborghini Aventador.
And before he had the Aventador, he drove around Los Angeles in a $500,000 Lamborghini Murcielago.
The Lamborghini Urus concept was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show on 23 April 2012. Later, the SUV was also shown at Pebble Beach in 2012.
Powered by a 5.2 L V10 engine shared with the Gallardo, the engine generated a theoretical maximum power output of 600 PS (592 hp; 441 kW) and was accompanied with an all-wheel drive system.
The Urus was reported to have the lowest carbon emissions as compared to its competitors (i.e. the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and the Audi Q7). The Urus was conceived as a perfect daily driver unlike the other offerings from the brand. The sharp-lined exterior design of the SUV takes heavy influence from the company's V12 flagship, the Aventador.
The production version of the SUV was introduced in 2017 with major changes done to the exterior and featuring a different powertrain than that of the concept
In other Kanye news, the rapper is being sued by the parents of Natalie Green, the then-4-year-old girl he sampled at the beginning of his Life of Pablo opener Ultralight Beam, as TMZ reports. Andrew and Shirley Green claim that Kanye got permission from the wrong parents to use the sample of Natalie’s prayer, which went viral at the beginning of 2016.
The Greens, who adopted Natalie, reportedly claim in court documents that Kanye cleared the sample through her biological mother Alice Johnson, who was not authorized to give permission. The Greens also allegedly state Johnson never received a written license or payment for the use of Natalie’s voice, and are seeking profits from “Ultralight Beam” in addition to other damages.
