Lamborghini LM002 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Few rumors have been as pervasive over the years as the rebirth of the Lamborghini LM002. Originally designed for military applications, the Countach-powered LM002 blended Sant'Agata's background in tractors with the exotic supercars for which they're now known. Ever since, reports of a follow-up have ebbed and flowed, resurfacing once again on an Audi/Porsche platform.

Like the upcoming Porsche Cajun, the project codenamed LM00X is reportedly based on the Audi Q5 platform. The LM00X could retain the Cajun's three-door body-style, infused with Lamborghini styling and the lightweight construction themes spearheaded by the Sesto Elemento concept. Word has it that the new twin-turbo V8 being developed for the Audi S7 and Bentley Continental would find its way into the Lambo crossover's engine bay, though we wouldn't be surprised to see the Raging Bull's own V10 on offer, tipped to arrive as soon as 2012.

      Maybe I will believe this when I finally see a production 4 door car from them, it's coming, right?!

      It looks like it was built in someone's backyard....out of plywood. I swear I'v seen this car in old issues of popular mechanics...

      if they don't make this thing, what will evil dictators and Bond villains drive? who -i ask you WHO- will tap that demographic?

      Hmm You know after seeing these pics I think I will just stick with my new Canyonero that I had just purchased from Krusty the Clown for $45K.

      Could that thing be any uglier?

        That's what she said.

        Not that I really care but, I find it hilarious that I've been voted down for pointing out something so obvious.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I see you are not aware of the one they call "Fiat Multipla"

      What has been seen.....

      Can never be unseen!

      I am probably not the first and likely not the last to say this. It looks like a Hummer H1!!

      Quite peculiar in deed!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        You mean the Hummer looks like the Lamboghini! It was the LM002 that came first. In fact the Cheetah concept on which it was based was designed in the 1970's.

      • 4 Years Ago
      What a friggin' monstrosity! There oughta be a law against vehicles that ugly being let loose on public streets!
      • 4 Years Ago
      You guys realize that the pictures are from the LM002 which was made from 1986-1993 and not the new one they are talking aobut right?


      It actually competed against the HMMWV for the Us gov't contract.


      Rambo-Lambo FTW!

        The original, with the real Lambo V12 did just fine. Quite a few Middle Eastern services did purchase them. Try doing 120+ mph, in the sand, with a HMMVV.
        • 4 Years Ago
        lol, i thought they all did and were just poking fun at how hid it was/is :)
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm sure that Italian V12 would have held up well to the rigors of desert warfare. I think they made the right choice going with the HMMWV.

      This is future classic. Actually I think it is already a modern classic like the G-Wagen.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Anyone who has read the news knows that the Cayman made sure Porsche was profitable so this is a smooth move. No supercar company I can think of has one. Porsche went SUV and 4 door. Done right, could be a big profit boom for them.

      End the crossover madness.

      Stop buying jacked up vehicles, people.
