Though Iommi is not really a brand ambassador for the Mahindra-owned Italian sports car manufacturer, he said that he had a passion for Lamborghini since the band's first wave of success. Posing next to the Lamborghini Urus in electric blue with a guitar in his hand, Iommi said, “I started out with two espadas, one at a time, in the 1970s. Later I got myself a Miura SV. When the Urus came out, I fell in love with him. It drives very well and is comfortable. I was very impressed when I tried it out on a racetrack for the first time. It was great, he's incredibly responsive! When I hit the gas pedal, I couldn't believe that a car this size could go that fast. I just had to have him. And since I was suddenly crazy about blue, of course it had to be a blue Urus."

Iommi said he is currently enjoying the coronavirus pandemic-related forced break. He said it is time to take stock and prepare to finally drive out again in his Lamborghini Urus.

“I've flown around the world umpteen times for 50 years, so I think the days of traveling are over for me. Now I enjoy being in one place a little longer. Incredibly, that's the longest time I've been in one place. But when we're allowed out again, I'll take the Urus to our house in Sandbanks, down by the sea in Dorset."
