1988 Lamborghini LM002 (LMA) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the very rare and very unique Lamborghini LM002. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this suv while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this suv designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
The four-wheel drive Lamborghini was carefully perfected and became available in 1986, the first production model was unveiled on an early 1986 Brussels Auto Show. The base of the LM-004 was used, but the engine became the new Quattrovalvole, now used in the Countach, but with a lower compression ratio to allow the use of 94 R.O.N. fuel.
Orders began coming in for this new and strange looking vehicle, and the first went to H.R.H. King Hassan of Morocco. Soon others followed, with every possible option installed on them, from 'basic' factory models to heavily armored ones. Even the 7.0-Litre marine engine was installed in some of them, at one time even a station wagon-type was constructed as a prototype, but never entered production.
The LM-002 became an immediate success, wherever you went with it, you would be admired, in the United States it even became known as the 'Rambo-Lambo', probably because its military looks and huge power. With its 1.89 m height, the LM-002 was a very impressive vehicle to appear in your rear view mirror, when you did see it, it was time to make way for it, because the LM-002 would surely pass you by in a cloud of dust.
The LM-002 standard equipment included every luxury item available, leather seats, thick color-matched carpeting everywhere, air-conditioning, tinted power-windows, a stereo system mounted in a roof console and much more, but still some were sold each year to various armies around the world.
The Saudi army ordered 40 of them for their own use, all equipped with machine guns.
This military version of the LM was finished less fancy, the roof had a panel built into it with two trap doors, which opened above the rear seats.
But the biggest market for the LM-002 were the wealthy people who wanted to drive a Countach but lived in places without 'real' roads.
The large center bulge on the hood accommodated an equally huge air-cleaner casing, mounted directly over the six Weber carburetors. The fuel supply system was equipped with two filters, in-line and in-series, and the carburetors were set to burn far less than perfect fuel. An oversized radiator with two high-speed fans kept the 'hot' engine cool.
The LM-002 was mounted on massive Pirelli Scorpion tires which offered unmatched road holding capabilities on both tarmac and sand, but which were also very expensive. These tires were exotic, Automobili Lamborghini SpA had Pirelli made them especially for the LM and offered them in two different tread designs, one for 'mixed' use and the other for 'sand' use only. These tires could be run virtually flat without risk and were the only rubbers available to compete with the desert heat, the loading and the speeds that the LM could inflict on them.
