Sitting firmly at the intersection of supercars and off-road vehicles, Lamborghini’s LM002 was truly a Lamborghini in every sense. Outlandish, wild, and exotic, it quickly found fans worldwide, ranging from militaries to sheikhs, as it could be stripped out for professional use or specified with all the luxuries to which Lamborghini’s customers were accustomed.
Anyone with seat time in a Countach would instantly find themselves at home in an LM002. Aside from the obvious addition of rear seats, every surface is covered in wood or leather, and the exhaust note is unmistakably Lamborghini V-12. Feeding the thirsty V-12 engine is a massive 76-gallon fuel tank, which helped accommodate the 8 mpg fuel consumption. The performance was extraordinary, as the LM002 could complete a 0–60 mph run in just 7.7 seconds, which was incredible considering the LM002’s curb weight.
Production lasted until 1993, by which time 328 were assembled, including this September 1991–built example finished in black over a tan leather interior with black piping. This example is remarkably preserved, with the odometer displaying less than 29,000 kilometers. Period accessories including a winch with a roller fairlead as well as a once-de-rigueur Alpine cassette stereo remain present. Correct Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires are mounted on its five O.Z. wheels. The LM002 is accompanied by a driver’s handbook.
