Remember the Rambo Lambo?
To no one's surprise, the Lamborghini Urus has been a massive sales success. Last year, Lamborghini sold 8,205 units, which is a 43-percent increase over the previous year. And it's primarily thanks to the automaker's new SUV. Lamborghini shipped 4,962 units of the performance SUV in 2019, an impressive increase of 182 percent compared to 2018. However, the Urus isn't Lamborghini's first-ever SUV. That would be the Lamborghini LM002, also known as the "Rambo Lambo".
Built between 1986 and 1992, the LM002 was Lamborghini's first attempt at a military-style off-roader. Only 300 were ever made, which makes it a rare and sought-after SUV. If you're looking to buy one, you'll need deep pockets because used examples currently cost even more than a brand new Lamborghini Urus.
Listed for sale on duPont Registry is a stunning 1989 Lamborghini LM002 finished in white that only has one previous owner who put 18,763 miles on the clock. It also features a full leather black interior with wood grain trim, air conditioning, and a premium Alpine Stereo mounted in a roof console. The price? $349,900. That makes this 30-year old SUV $149,900 more expensive than a brand new Lamborghini Urus, which starts at $200,000.
An even more expensive black 1992 example is also currently for sale in Munich, Germany, via Auto Scout 24 with only 10,000 miles on the odometer for a whopping €357,000 ($397,471).
The LM002 is powered by the same 5.2-liter V12 as the Countach producing 426 hp. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the LM002 hits 0-62 mph in 9.3 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. that's a lot slower than the Urus, which will do the same sprint in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of around 190 mph. But if you want to stand out from the crowd, the LM002 is a more unusual sight on the road.
