The Sultan of Brunei's one-off Lamborghini LM002 wagon – Click above for image gallery


It's not every day that a Lamborghini LM002 goes up for sale. The sole crossover (no pun intended) between Lambo's tractor and supercar divisions, the LM002 forged the path for later exotic sport-utes like the Porsche Cayenne and Spyker D8 Peking-to-Paris SSUV decades earlier. But the Rambo Lambo, as it was known, was sold as a four-door short-bed pickup of sorts. That didn't cut it for the famously car crazy Sultan of Brunei, who apparently had this custom LM002 wagon built to his specifications.

It can seat seven in exotic opulence, complete with leather upholstery, burlwood veneer, television screens, DVD players, electric everything...oh, and a 450 horsepower V12 borrowed from the Countach. Not too shabby, especially for a sport-ute from 1987.

This particular LM is said to be the only one of its kind, and it was reportedly owned by former BMW and Volkswagen chief Bernd Pischetsrieder after it left Brunei. It's now available for purchase in Germany at an undisclosed price, and is sure to terrify the other SUVs at your kid's soccer practice – to say nothing of the gas stations you're sure to frequent with this sort of beast.

      I used to see a red LM002 running around the Jersey Shore often. I always thought it was a weird-lookin' thing.

      wow. that thing sucks on so many levels.

      only a blind rich fool would pay money for this.

      The pictures make it look like it actually seats 10 people. Either way, what a fun vehicle.

      That thing is BEAST, lambo should totally make a follow up.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow, just seen pics of one parked on the road. Looks like you stick a dozen people in that thing and can basically go anywhere.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow. Just ...wow...

      Man, that's a badass ride
      • 5 Years Ago
      climbing angle of 70 degreese
      125 mph or so top speed
      0-60 in 7.8

      for a 3 tonne vehicle, not too shabby?

      I used to work at a tire shop and we looked up tire prices for that truck. They were $1200.00 per tire back in the day 15-20 years ago.
