Before the record-breaking Urus, Lamborghini had military-style LM002 SUV, dubbed the “Rambo Lambo”.
The LM002 SUV, which stands for Lamborghini Militaria 002, debuted in 1986 and was produced until 1993.
Just 328 examples were made, with each having a starting price of $120,000 — which is more than $264,000 today.
The Urus, this month, established itself as Lamborghini’s biggest selling model in the shortest period of time after the 20,000th units of the Super SUV rolled off the assembly line after just four years of production.
Since it entered the market in 2018, the Lamborghini Urus has not only played a crucial role in the brand’s growth, but has also earned a large number of awards and recognitions owing to its extreme versatility.
Before the fast-selling and record-setting ₦200+ Million Urus SUV, there was the Lamborghini LM002 Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), dubbed the “Rambo Lambo” and the “Lamborghini truck”.
The 2.7 tonnes, 4.8 metres long Military-style LM002 SUV, which stands for Lamborghini Militaria 002, debuted in 1986 and was produced until 1993.
The project was an unusual departure for the Italian brand Lamborghini which, at the time, was primarily known for high-performance sports cars.
Powering the LM 002 is a powerful 5.2-liter V12 engine from the Lamborghini Countach, allowing it to reach a top speed of 210 km/h and do a zero to 100 in 7.8 seconds.
Unlike the “Rambo Lambo”, its direct heir, the roaring Urus, is powered by a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which allows a 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph.
Just 328 examples of the Lamborghini LM002 SUV were made, with each having a starting price of $120,000 — which is more than $264,000 today.
Many of these off-roaders were reportedly sold to the super rich, including Gaddafi’s Libyan Army, the Saudis and Saddam Hussein’s son.
