Lamborghini Raton Design Study Makes The Urus Seem Meek

The launch of the Urus has, apparently, sparked a barrage of renderings, the latest of which is this Raton six-wheeler.

Emre Husmen, who penned this rendering, followed Lamborghini's practice of naming its models after fighting bulls. The Raton was a fierce Spanish bull that took the lives of three people in the arena between 2006 and 2011 and injured thirty more, earning the nickname el toro asesino, which translates to "the assassin bull" .

The 'Mouse', which is its literal translation from Spanish, has a go-anywhere look thanks to its six-wheel design, chunky all-terrain rubber, large square-shaped fenders and huge ground clearance. Apart from sketching it, Husmen said that he imagined the Raton to be powered by a turbodiesel electric hybrid powertrain that would produce in excess of 1,000 horsepower.

With the Urus being marketed as the sportiest SUV ever, there's no chance Lamborghini will ever make a 6x6 version. But if, for argument's sake, we assume it did, what would you rather have: this Italian super SUV, the Mercedes G-Class 6x6, Kahn's Land Rover Defender or Hennesey's Ford F-150 VelociRaptor?
