How would you like a 455 horsepower 5.2-liter V12 in your tube frame chassis pickup truck? That is precisely what this 1988 Lamborghini LM002 is. This was a lot of truck back in 1988, and it still is.
The LM002 designation refers to the second iteration of the design that Lamborghini put into production. This truck was originally conceived as a high-speed military vehicle. It never saw military service and just 301 examples of this design were produced. Finding one of these in Colorado is a special treat indeed.
It is a serious off-roader. It sits up high. It has a wide and tall transmission tunnel that tucks all driveline components out of the way of obstacles. It has mechanically operated and locking differentials. In fact, you can lock the transfer case and both axles for true four-wheel drive action. The LM002 V12 also pumps out 368 lb-ft of torque, so there is plenty of twist to get out of most sticky situations.
Being the exotic military-based truck of the 1980s, Sylvester Stallone used to own one. As such, the oddly named LM002 has a nickname. The “Rambo Lambo”.
Check out the video as a ultra-rare 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400S joins the LM002 for some posing. The Countach is undergoing some clutch work and was not running that day.
