1990 lamborghini lm002 for sale
Fast Facts:

  • Nicknamed the “Rambo Lambo” by a journalist, this hand built luxury off-roader cost the equivalent of $235,000 in 2020 money
  • The LM002 is powered by the same 7k RPM quad cam V12 found in Lamborghini’s Countach LP5000 Quattrovalvole. Only a few modifications were made to this engine for the LM002, most notably the intake system. Air is sucked in from a large vented bulge in the hood, where it travels through a pair of massive air cleaner jugs. The heavy duty jugs are intended to filter out the desert sand and other outdoor debris accumulated during off-roading
  • The engine actually made more power in the LM002 than in the Countach. Emissions requirements for light trucks were less strict than they were for cars, allowing the emissions equipment in the LM002 to be less restrictive
  • The sole transmission was a ZF “dog-leg” 5spd (ZF S5-24/3). This is paired with a 2-speed transfer case which permitted 4WD operation in low and high ranges, with the ability to switch to conventional rear wheel drive
  • The LM002, which can climb a 120% gradient, features an LSD on each axle. The front uses a 25% locking diff (with manual locking hubs), and the rear utilizes a 75% locking diff. Final drive ratio is 4.125:1
  • While the steel 8-lug 17″ wheels seem small, they are 11″ wide and are wrapped in highly expensive 345/60 VR 17 Pirelli Scorpion run-flat tires. This tire size has never been found on an American market car before, despite being DOT rated
  • The LM002 employs a tubular chassis with a body composed of aluminum and fiberglass. Despite the lightweight materials, it weighs 6,780 lbs – or 2,472 lbs heavier than a Range Rover of the same year
  • The Countach’s V12 wasn’t the only engine option available on the LM002. Lamborghini’s L804 type 7.2L marine V12, found in Class 1 offshore powerboats, could be fitted from the factory. Very few buyers (if any) opted for this engine
  • The front brakes consist of vented rotors borrowed from the Countach, but are clamped by two brake calipers rather than one. The rear uses 12″x3″ drums, making it one of the largest drum brakes ever fitted to the rear of a car. Braking from 70 to 0 MPH happens in just 200ft, which was superior to many road cars carrying only 1/3 of the weight
  • The rear of the LM002 includes an open-air observation deck out back that can seat 2-4 passengers
  • U.S models came standard with a 45 gallon fuel tank, but a 77 gallon could be fitted by the factory
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Only 301 units were sold, produced from 1987-1993
  • Final year of the carbureted model (which uses 6 side-draft Weber 44 DCNF twin-choke carburetors). The following year (1991) switched to the Bosch KE Jetronic fuel injection sourced from the Diablo’s V12
  • The carbureted models could be identified by the enormous center hood bulge required to house the massive air cleaner assembly for the 6 Weber carburetors. The fuel injected models featured a much smaller, rounded hood bulge (the FI system didn’t require so much room). This increased visibility was well
  • 1993 was the first year of the LM Americana edition, with redesigned interior, aluminum MSW/OZ wheels and chrome bumpers (front and rear). Only 60 units were sold
