With the exciting news of the new Lamborghini Urus SUV is to be launched on the 4th of December 2017.

We Blog Any Car has taken a look back at the amazing Lamborghini LM002.

The LM002 started life as a project for the military. Can you imagine it as a high performance off road military vehicle?  Anyway that didn’t workout too well.

The project was relaunched in 1981, and by 1986 it was shown at the Brussels Motor Show as a luxury SUV.  Lamborghini had now fitted the 5,167 litre V12 engine from the already legendary Countach Quattrovalvole.  It produced 450 hp.

Only 300 were produced between 1986 to 1992 making it very rare.

You could say that this SUV was the start of the luxury SUV market.
