Lamborghini LM002: Precursor To A Super SUV

In the 1970s, Lamborghini began production of an SUV with military-grade toughness and supercar-like performance capability. Dubbed the "Cheetah", this concept Lamborghini SUV never did reach production, but did start a chain of events that would eventually culminate in the production of the iconic Lamborghini LM002.

In 1981, Fiulio Alfieri introduced the Lamborghini LM 001, recapturing the spirit of the Lamborghini "Cheetah" concept. Featuring a rear-mounted engine, the LM 001 was revolutionary in its design.

Next in the Lamborghini SUV Lineup came the LMA prototype, which featured a more conventional front-mounted powertrain.

At the Brussels Auto Show in 1986, the Lamborghini LM002 made its big debut. This V12 powered Lamborghini SUV boasted a light aluminum and fiberglass body and 450 horsepower, making it exceptionally fast. On the capability front, a four-wheel drive transmission, transfer case, and three locking differentials, gave this SUV unparalleled capability.
