Those diehard fans of Lamborghini must know that the LM002 can be regarded as Lamborghini’s first off-road SUV. Originating in the 1970s as a military project, the model is considered the granddaddy of luxury full-size SUVs.
The total production of this LM002 of Italian origin is only 301 units, and the one to be auctioned is a special version of the United States. It is speculated that the auction price is about 400,000-500,000 US dollars (equivalent to about 3.3 million RMB). Of the 301 LM002s produced between 1986 and 1993, only 48 were special editions for the United States, which is enough to show that this car is a rare rarity. ), with a black livery and a red cockpit.
In addition to its scarce nature, due to its age and poor use environment, this LM002 has undergone five years of restoration work, with a total cost of about 325,000 US dollars (equivalent to RMB 2.14 million). Among the repairs are new Pirelli Scorpion tires, and Bluetooth stereo music support to adapt to modern technology. In addition, this Lamborghini LM002 is also equipped with the original tool kit and various manuals and books.
LM002 sounds like a code name, and its original purpose was to participate in the bidding of the military off-road vehicles of the US military at that time, which can be known from its simple and rough appearance. It’s a pity that due to a crash in a desert test, coupled with the unreliable 5.9-liter engine from Chrysler, it was finally won by the Hummer from General Motors, and the latter became famous for it. However, even if the bid was not successful, relying on the strong brand aura, the company decided to introduce this military special vehicle to the market with a slight change, so that the years of research and development energy would not be in vain, and finally chose the Countach for the engine. The V12 is used as the engine for the production model. In terms of off-road performance, Lamborghini LM002 is equipped with a four-wheel drive system and three differential locks. This configuration also made it the top luxury off-road SUV on the market at that time. small feeling.
The Lamborghini Urus also marks its return to this market. Like the LM002, the Lamborghini Urus is still an SUV that combines luxury, off-road capability and high performance. The difference is that that V12 engine will definitely not be available. In its place will be a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with a maximum output of 650 horsepower, and a plug-in hybrid version will also be launched later.
