The Aston Martin DBX and Lamborghini Urus are high-end crossovers with twin-turbocharged V8 engines, all-wheel drive and automatic transmission, but that’s where the similarities end. One is more focused on luxury and comfort, while the other is mostly a stilt supercar built primarily for top speed.

Although the DBX had an impressive start to the race and managed to pull ahead briefly, the significantly more powerful Lamborghini engine helped the Urus regain its lost ground and ultimately triumph.
