SUV Lamborghini LM002

SUV Lamborghini LM002 - the only such car is the Italian manufacturer, which went into series. It continues the direction of Lamborghini Cheetah, which was created for the US Army, was built in a single copy, and then broke down in 1977 on the tests. A decade later, in 1986 at the Brussels Motor Show the public presented LM002. This model proved to be the most viable, unlike other prototypes - LM001, LM003 and LM004. Their structural differences based on the different positions of the engine, which, incidentally, is a 5, a 2-liter V12 power of 444 hp from the Lamborghini Countach 5000QV.

If a race car engine, rear, makes "more race" with the SUV is not the case.

In 1988, it was decided that the SUV will participate in the Rally Paris - Dakar, but when it came down to it, it became clear that it had no money Lamborghini. What is curious, to prepare the car for the race in time. Engine power was raised from 444 to 600 hp, reinforced suspension, the car is as easy as possible, leaving only the most necessary, put the GPS and made a number of improvements. As a result, a car rally in the pair subsequently participated - in Greece and Egypt.
