1990 LAMBORGHINI LM002 FINISHED IN BLUE OVER TAN 5.2L V12 444HP 4WD
The LM002 was an unusual departure for Lamborghini which, at the time, was primarily known for high-performance, hand-built, super/sports cars. The LM002 was not the first of its kind to be built by Lamborghini. Two prototype vehicles, the Cheetah and the LM001, paved the way for LM002. Both vehicles used rear-mounted American power plants and were intended for military use, but were not well received. With the idea of using a front mounted countach V12 to power the LM001 came the next model, the "LM002", which was the first of the three to see actual production by Lamborghini.
It was finally determined that the engine being mounted in the rear caused too many unfavorable handling characteristics in an offroad vehicle, and the LMA002 was built with an entirely new chassis, moving the engine (now the V12 out of the Lamborghini Countach) to the front. After much testing and altering of the prototype, it was finally given a serial number and became the first LM002. The production model was unveiled at the Brussels Auto Show in 1986. It was dubbed the "Rambo-Lambo". Civilian models were outfitted with a full luxury package, including full leather trim, tinted power windows, air conditioning, and a premium stereo mounted in a roof console. In order to meet the vehicle's tire needs, Lamborghini commissioned Pirelli to create the Pirelli Scorpion tires with custom, run-flat tread designs. These were made specifically for the LM and were offered in two different tread designs, one for mixed use and the other for sand use only. These tires could be run virtually flat without risk and could handle the desert heat, the loading, and the speeds of the LM.
They only made LM002 for the US in 1989 - 1991. In total there were only about 328 LM002 made. There were very few in this gorgeous Blue/Tan color combo. With only 10K miles this has to be one of the best examples in this color combo! This LM has a stack of service records from the current owner and just got back from a service at Lamborghini St Louis. It is the right Rambo Lambo to add to the collection! Do not hesitate, this will not last long.
