Lamborghini has announced the Urus could be built outside Italy if green-lighted for production.

In an interview with Car Advice, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said that building the Urus will most likely force the company to assemble the SUV outside Italy because there might not be enough production capacity at the Sant'Agata Bolognese factory. This announcement shouldn't come as a surprise taking into account earlier this year we heard a rumor about the Urus set to be assembled in Slovakia together with the Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg and Audi Q7 as well as the bodies for Bentley's upcoming crossover likely to be called Bentayga.

Lamborghini still hasn't green-lighted the Urus for production even though the concept was unveiled back in April 2012 at the Beijing Motor Show. Winkelmann said that if approved for production for 2017, the Urus SUV will likely double Lamborghini's sales but would command a massive investment which is why they are still not sure whether it's a viable project. However, he went on to say the Urus "is a very credible car. It's a good thing for Lamborghini to be in."
