[E Group Overseas Report] I have always believed that, as a top tractor brand, Lamborghini’s civilian products should be powerful off-road vehicles, not high-performance sports cars. But history is so erroneous that Lamborghini has become a top sports car company, so powerful that people forget its tractor business.
In the 1980s, Lamborghini entered the off-road vehicle market, and launched the representative LM002 in 1986, and this Lamborghini LM002, which was put into production with only 347 vehicles, has also become a member of the current collection circle. But what is certain is that at least one LM002 has been destroyed in the war-in the Iraq war in 2003, an American soldier who didn’t know how much water had entered his head scrapped a Saddam’s LM002 with a grenade.
The Lamborghini LM002, which debuted in 1986, is not outdated even now. Just like the Lamborghini Countash at the same time, its shape is very forward-looking. The image of the pickup makes the posture and proportions of the vehicle less bloated than its size, and the wheel width of more than 300mm also makes the posture of the LM002’s undercarriage particularly stable. In terms of the structure of the vehicle, the first-generation LM002 is built with a tubular frame and riveted aluminum panels, and is powered by a 5.2L V12 engine. These elements constitute the classic of LM002.
After production was discontinued in 1993, the Lamborghini LM002 had nothing to say. However, it was reported a few days ago that with the continuous promotion of Volkswagen Group in new energy power, this traditional off-road vehicle has room for development. As a result, the Volkswagen Group is seriously considering the idea of launching a successor for the Lamborghini LM002. If this idea is supported, then in the next time, the successor of Lamborghini LM002 will use the MLB EVO platform to build a completely off-road style.
