For a truck built in such limited numbers, the Lamborghini LM002 has built up an impressive cult following over the years. In this day and age, a car like this would probably never make it past the drawing board, given the intense scrutiny given to gas mileage and C02 emissions. One could imagine the cries: “a four-seat, four wheel drive off-roader and you’re going to stick WHAT under the hood?” A Lamborghini V12? Are you mad?!?”
Well, on the brink of survival, Lamborghini did just that in the 1980s, after the initial, rear-engined Cheetah concept went no further than the concept stage. Ceasing production right before the SUV craze began, these brutes went unnoticed for a short while but now are becoming rather popular.

RARE 1990 Lamborghini LM002-America finished in OEM Gloss Black over OEM Red Leather interior. One of ONLY 48 LM002-Americas produced worldwide. With JUST 4,152 miles from new (6,698 KMS on the ODOD) this truck is as new as a used vehicle gets. This truck's first owner was the famous artist, Christian R Lassen. Included in the sale is the retail sale certificate, warranty registration card, as well as the original window sticker. Along with the "updated" newer OEM factory options exclusive to the LM002 America trucks, sale includes owner's books and USA version book, 4WD lug wrench, tinted windows, updated stereo head and speakers (in OEM locations), newer "Super Swamper" tires with spare (less than 500mi driven), OEM spare tire metal cover with insignia, and RARE OEM factory tonneau cover. All full service was completed 500mi ago. This car is in superior condition inside and out, it's that clean! A 3 stage detail was recently completed. It drives incredibly well being equipped with the upgraded "America" fuel injected Diablo motor. The AC blows ICE COLD. No accidents and a very, very late production LM-002 America. A set of OEM Scorpion "Sand Lip" tires available as well for this vehicle.
For anyone interested in learning more about this truck, Octane magazine had an excellent feature of a restored example and a British concern that is helping to keep these vehicles preserved. Worth noting is that this LM002 has new tires. The Pirelli Scorpions can be had, but if you find them, prepare to pay an eye watering amount of money for them. Given that it has new rubber and low mileage, the price is about in line with what the market is currently dictating. These are fascinating trucks and a curious example of the lunacy that Lamborghini is capable of. For all its faults, you can’t help but love it.
