Sitting firmly at the intersection of supercars and off-road vehicles, Lamborghini’s LM002 was truly a Lamborghini in every sense. Outlandish, wild, and exotic, it quickly found fans worldwide, ranging from militaries to Sheiks, as it could be stripped out for professional use or specified with all the luxuries to which Lamborghini’s customers were accustomed.
Anyone with seat time in a Countach would instantly find themselves at home in an LM002. Aside from the obvious addition of rear seats, every surface is covered in wood or leather, and the exhaust note is unmistakably Lamborghini V-12. Feeding the thirsty V-12 engine is a massive 76-gallon fuel tank, which helped accommodate the 8 mpg fuel consumption. The performance was extraordinary, as the LM002 could complete a 0–60 mph run in just 7.7 seconds, which was incredible considering the LM002’s curb weight was 5,720 lb!
Formerly residing in Monaco, this LM002 was acquired from a private owner in France in November of 2013. It was subsequently exported to Kuwait and has remained there ever since. It has remained largely in static storage and rarely been driven, yet it has been regularly serviced and looked after in-house at the current owner’s collection.
Invoices from servicing in his ownership show that the car has been driven less than 100 km since the consignor’s purchase, and the odometer is currently showing less than 11,600 km from new. Currently finished in a subtle colour combination of Nero over a beige interior, the car was repainted black prior to the current owner’s acquisition, and it was previously painted grey. It is also worth noting that the car is accompanied by LM002 owner’s manuals and pouch, including a warranty manual.
With Lamborghini’s Urus in full production, it is only natural that LM002 remains in the forefront of the hearts and minds of both the company and its customers alike. Well-kept examples have always been in demand, and this LM002 would be an excellent stablemate to its modern successor.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
