RAMBO LAMBO! Lamborghini LM002 Military Off Roader - My First Drive

Auto e motori

The Lamborghini LM002 is a unique off-roading beast! Nicknamed the Rambo Lambo it put the Countach's V12 into a military vehicle capable of attacking any terrain. Not many were ever built but on a visit to We Are Curated we're taking this example out for a drive!
In total, Lamborghini made 328 LM002s between 1986 and 1993, having been inspired by the Cheetah and LM001 prototype military grade vehicles before eventually going into production. It's powered by the 5.2l naturally aspirated V12 effectively sourced from the Countach and then later from the Diablo, with a 5 speed manual, but clearly a very different model from it's successor in the form of the Lamborghini Urus.
After visiting John Temerian at We Are Curated a few months ago when we went out in the straight pipe Ferrari Enzo, this time around is something a little bit different. We can take a quick walk through the showroom to see what's changed and some of the new arrivals, before it's time to test drive the Lamborghini LM002.
The LM002 is directly responsible for the existence of the Urus now, being the forerunner of this luxury SUV market. As rugged as the LM002 is on the outside, it has a plush leather interior and the features you'd have been chasing back in the 1980s. With John taking the wheel to start, it's then my turn to drive and have a small experience of what it's like on a hot and humid day in Miami.
For more stories about the current cars at We Are Curated and plenty more in the future, be sure to follow Curated TV:

    The Rambo Lambo means business! With John Temerian at We Are Curated, we're checking out the Lamborghini LM002, the original super-SUV originally built for the military but equipped with the V12 from the Countach. It's eluded me to date, but this was the forerunner for the Urus, so let's find out what it's all about.

    Love that you took time to film this thoroughly even though it sadly will not get close to the views as some "boring" regular stuff like a Huracan or Roma will get. This car is awesome and way more interesting!

    @Doug Parker harsher ride does not mean worse. Stiffer suspension helps it go faster on the track which is what the sto is meant for. Why would you want to put a worse suspension on just to be comfy on the street. Just save a bunch of money and by the r8 if you don’t care about performance and want comfort.

    I don't normally like any SUV's. But I love this truck, as it's the only SUV with a V12 & a manual transmission. As a teen I had a Lamborghini poster with all the cars and stats, including this on it. This would be absolutely perfect for someone in Dubai. Which reminds me that Supercar Blondie lives in Dubai. Too bad they never made a diesel version. The Urus should have been more like this. Keep the great content coming. Thanks.

    The back-seat legroom is horrible, and there's no real cargo space. I don't get how Lamborghini thought it would make a good military vehicle. It's cool as hell, and always will be just the same, though.
