Talk to anyone about Lamborghini’s LM002 and you’ll generally only get one of two responses – burning hatred or deep and abiding love. I fall firmly into that latter category, alongside other global cultural luminaries like Muammar Gaddafi, Uday Hussein, Richard Hammond and a select group of Saudi sheiks.

 The look of it won’t appeal to everyone of course but it was never designed to be pretty, it was designed for use in the desert by gentlemen of leisure that wanted to check in on their oil wells without ever needing to step out onto the sand.

In some respects Lamborghini was decades early to the luxury, high-performance SUV game – almost 30 years after the LM002 was released the genre is now heavily populated with exceedingly powerful, expensive and luxurious 4x4s by Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, BMW and Bentley with Jaguar rumoured to be close behind. Further rumours exists that Lamborghini themselves are going to re-enter the fray with an all-new 4-door 4×4 at some point in the very near future. 

This particular Lamborghini LM002 is finished in red and one of just a handful of examples to call the United States home especially California. This car was originally produced in March of 1988 and throughout its  life has had just two owners. Additionally and contrary to what you may expect for a car of its age, this Lamborghini LM002 has covered just over ______ km and should consequently still be in good running order. The SUV is rolling on the New original spec Pirelli Scorpion tyres with an extra set available to the prospective buyer - add a cost of $15000 dollars this is an added value, not to mention availability is very rare. Pirelli was commissioned to develop special tyres and came up with the ‘Scorpion’, a design available in two different tread patterns (mixed use and sand only) that could be run virtually flat. 


Beneath the skin is a 5.2-litre V12 engine delivering a total of 444 hp and complete with no less than six Weber carburettors. Drive is then sent to all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission and helping to ensure the LM002 is as capable as possible off-road, it features independent front and rear suspension

One of the most exciting and exclusive off-road vehicles ever conceived, the Lamborghini LM 002 resulted from the marriage of the Countach QV supercar’s 5.2-litre V12 to a functionally - some would say brutally - styled ‘4x4’, the union resulting in scintillating performance and a top speed in the region of 200km/h. This state-of-the-art engine drove through a five-speed ZF heavy-duty transmission and two-speed reduction gearbox offering a choice of ten speeds and two- or four-wheel drive. Mounted on a tubular steel chassis, the distinctive five-door body was hand made in glassfibre (wings, bonnet, roof) and aluminium (doors) and the LM 002 came equipped in a manner one would expect from one of the world’s foremost supercar manufacturers, with sumptuous leather-trimmed interior and air conditioning as standard. 

The LM 002 resulted from a series of stillborn off-road prototypes originally conceived with military use in mind and was first announced in the autumn of 1985, with deliveries commencing the following year. 

Customers could specify their own level of equipment ranging from luxurious opulence and one end of the scale to Spartan functionality at the other. To cope with the desert terrain that was assumed to be the LM 002’s natural home, 

It was only natural that such an ‘over the top’ vehicle would attract wealthy high-profile customers, and the first LM 002 is reputed to have been sold to HRH King Hassan of Morocco. In the USA it became known as the ‘Rambo Lambo’ for obvious reasons. Derivatives included the LM 003, a diesel-powered military model that never got past the prototype stage, and the LM 004, which used Lamborghini’s 7.2-litre V12 engine intended for powerboats. 

One of only 328 LM 002s produced between 1986 and 1992, this example is a Well maintained, with servicing up to date, the vehicle has covered only _____kilometres from new and is presented in commensurately excellent condition, with damage free black leather interior. Ready to cruise the boulevards of St Tropez or the sands of the Sahara Desert, ‘12214’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire a very fine example of the vehicle likely to retain its unofficial ‘world’s fastest off-roader’ title well into the foreseeable future.

A Lamborghini SUV for the man who has everything

One of Only 328 Examples Built

The Final Evolution of the Carbureted Lamborghini V-12

Outfitted with Factory Luggage Box, Tool Kit, Owners Manual, Americana Wheels and Pirelli Scorpion Sand Tires

Finished in an eye-catching shade of red, this LM002  off-roader has spentits life in the California. It has only had two owners since new, which partly explains why the odometer reads merely  miles.

The LM002 is entirely original inside and out. This Well maintained and fully functional, the LM002 packs a Countach-sourced 5.2-liter V12 engine that generates 444 horsepower thanks in part to a total of six Weber carburetors. Linked to a five-speed manual transmission that spins all four wheels, the V12 sends the 5,720-pound behemoth from zero to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds and a top speed of nearly 150 mph


This 1990 Lamborghini LM002 is said to be all-original, well-kept, and in perfect working order. The 18,708 kilometers showing on its odometer translate to 11,625 and are said to be accurate.

Born of a failed off road prototype intended for sale to the American military, Lambo instead marketed the finished, V12 powered behemoths primarily to the Middle East where oil was cheap, off-road capability was important and the rich were plentiful. Apart from some wear visible on the rear luggage compartment lid, this interestingly colored example shows very nicely with clean paint, straight panels, and excellent trim. 325/65/17 tires might look cartoonish on any other SUV, but somehow manage to fit right in with the rest of the LM’s angular, oversized personality.

White leather upholstery isn’t subtle, but in the context of a hand-built, Countach powered, three ton four seater what is? Seats, side panels, and other hide-swathed areas look barely used, as does carpet, plastic, veneer, and the oddly cohesive navy blue headliner. Switchgear placement takes the word “haphazard” to a new level, while instrumentation has an appropriately mil-spec vibe thanks to large, unadorned markings. Interestingly, the tach is redlined at 6,500 RPM, though the same motor (reportedly) as installed in the LP5000 QV was given an extra thousand revs to play with.

​Speaking of all alloy, quad cam, 48 valve, 5.2 liter V12s, the one fitted beneath this truck’s appealingly asymmetric hood looks virtually factory fresh and runs an interesting triple belt pulley arrangement as well as a very different intake system compared to the QV Countach—perhaps these provide a hint as to the lower rev limit in this application. Factory quoted numbers included 450 HP and 369 lb. ft. of torque—not terribly impressive figures when accounting for the considerable heft of the rolling stock and body they’re responsible for motivating, but quantifying an LM002’s value with practicalities is a losing game. 


444 hp, 5,167 cc four-valve DOHC V-12 engine with six Weber carburetors, five-speed manual transmission, independent front and rear suspension with coil springs and telescopic shock absorbers, and four-wheel hydraulic ventilated disc brakes.




 the exhaust note is still unmistakable, as its engine was sourced from none other than the Countach. Feeding that thirsty V-12 engine was a massive 76-gallon fuel tank, which helped accommodate its 8-mpg fuel consumption. Its performance was extraordinary, as it could complete a 0–60 mph run in just 7.7 seconds, which was incredible considering the LM002’s curb weight was 5,720 pounds!

This LM002, which was built in March 1989, has had only two prior caretakers, and it has spent its entire life in the Pacific Northwest with its second owner, Robert F Meyer of Hoquiam, Washington, who owned the car for the past 23 years. The odometer shows 18,000 miles, all of which are believed to be original, and it is still fitted with its original Pirelli Scorpion tires, which were custom made by Pirelli specifically for the LM002. With the exception of its wood trim, which was recently replaced due to its age, this LM002 has been very well preserved and remains in largely original condition. It would make for a compelling driver in any locale, be it the sand dunes of Qatar or the urban jungle of New York City. This car, finished in classic red with a black interior, is certain to attract attention anywhere in the world.

The LM002 is perhaps the most outlandish vehicle created by a company that is known for creating cars that defy rationality, and it is undoubtedly an important part of Lamborghini history. The LM002 was destined to become a future classic the moment the final car left the production line, and an excellent example should be part of any significant collection of Lamborghinis. This example will certainly not disappoint.
