This Lamborghini Shows How To Stand Out In A Supercar Event

Supercar

The original Lamborghini SUV is an absolute showstopper.

A plethora of Lamborghinis and Ferraris recently gathered at a supercar event on the TT Circuit in Assen, the Netherlands. The event was filmed by YouTube channel statesidesupercars, and while we would normally be drooling over the sight of exotics being put through their paces, the real star of the show was the unusual sight of a Lamborghini LM002 SUV which unsurprisingly stood out when it made its grand entrance. Only 328 were made during its production run between 1986 and 1993 making it rarer than some of the exotics at the event.

You’d think that such an ungainly SUV would look ridiculous on a racetrack considering that it weighs a mere 2.7 tons, but the LM002 still has some supercar credentials. Its 5.2-liter V12 producing 444 horsepower is lifted from the Countach, and some of its design cues were also inspired by the iconic sports car, making it easier on the eye than the Hummer H1.

Combined with its go-anywhere chassis, the LM-002 is a truly unique SUV that is highly sought after among collectors and often sells for six figure sums. All that weight means you can’t expect supercar performance, but the LM002 sprints from 0-62 mph in 8.5 seconds which is still impressive for such a ludicrously large vehicle. As the V12-powered LM002 roars down the straight in the video, it’s hard to believe an SUV can produce such a sublime sound that could be mistaken for a high-end supercar. The LM002 was the only SUV produced in Lamborghini’s history, but that’s soon about to change with the launch of the Urus next year. Suffice to say, it will have more mainstream appeal than the LM002.
