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
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.
Honda HSV-010 RAYBRIG - Honda's next gen. NSX-GT
"Honda Music" is back!
This is Honda HSV-010 GT, the successor of NSX-GT. Due to too strong a
downforce, the top speed is slightly lower than the rivals such as Nissan
GT-R, but it's an ultimate cornering machine ever! And the Exhaust sound is even better than NSX-GT. I
miss the old NSX, but now HSV is becoming my new favorite Honda.
This video was shot on "Bridgestone Tire Test Day for SuperGT", May 13,
2010 at Sports Land Sugo, Japan.
