Lamborghini’s original 4×4 up for auction

Long before VW took control of the Italian carmaker and idea of the forthcoming Urus where derived, Lamborghini once built a formidable 4×4, the LM. Back in the 80’s this stunning car wouldn’t have looked out of place in a Hollywood blockbuster staring Stallone or Schwarzenegger.

The LM-series was the original Lamborghini off-roader. Instead of a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 expected of its spiritual successor, it was powered by a 5.2-litre V12 also found in Lamborghini’s Countach supercar.

The LM002 is no shrinking violet, both in its size and the way it looks. The Lambo’ is capable of 0-100km/h in a respectable 7.8 seconds and a top speed of 209km/h, which is commendable for something of this magnitude, with the aerodynamics of a classroom.

Only 328 in total were assembled, with this 1991 example originally from Poland. It has been treated to a full restoration by Lamborghini Wycombe and featured in the Gumball Rally.

The mean off-roader will be auctioned by Coys for the Spring Classics sale on April 12, with an expected price of around £180,000
