Cimex Conin Concept - Click above for high-res image gallery

Though automakers too numerous to list operate plants and build cars in Mexico, the country South of the Border doesn't really have a homegrown auto industry to speak of. One model doesn't exactly constitute as an "industry," but the Cimex Conin concept certainly seems like a step in the right direction.

While Autoblog's own staffers seem divided on the merits of the classic Lamborghini LM002 (don't believe the rest of 'em, Lambo's off-road supercar will forever be epically cool), the Italian SUV has aged into a truly iconic design. Since the Conin looks like a dead-ringer for the LM002, we'd argue that the its boxy SUT shape would look perfect storming the deserts in Baja... or, ya know, picking up the groceries at the local Food City.

Details on what actually underpins or powers the Conin are scarce, but we surmise it will be rear- or four-wheel drive and sport a range of fuel efficient gasoline and diesel engines. We'll take one to park next to the 'ol Subaru Brat in our own fantasy garage.
