1988 Lamborghini LM002 SUV to be auctioned

November 9, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Very soon, the legendary Lamborghini LM002 SUV of the 1988 model will be launched at auction. The car has no price tag yet. Judging by the announcement of the sale, the car is in excellent technical condition.

The Lamborghini LM002 is an SUV of the legendary brand, which was produced in a circulation of just over 300 units between 1986 and 1993. One of the copies of this model, which rolled off the assembly line in 1988, will be sold at auction on November 11th.

Advertised by RMSothebys for its online auction, it was originally shipped to Sweden, and after spending several years in a northern European country, it ended up in Italy, where it was displayed in a museum.

It was then taken to the United Kingdom in 2015, where it was acquired by a freight company two years later.

According to the documents, the SUV has Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires, a new battery, an A / C compressor clutch, CV rear axle anthers, an oil filter and a fuel tank float sensor. Other replacement parts that were taken care of in preparation for the sale are the fuel supply, braking and ignition systems.

The LM002, finished in Acapulco Blue with gray interior, has a range of 17,250 km. The SUV is still powered by a 5.2-liter V12 with over 400 hp, which is mated to a five-speed manual transmission from ZF. The car still has to move like a new car, accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.7 seconds, which is an impressive achievement for cars from the 80s, especially considering the car’s 2,700 kg weight.

The auction house did not provide any pricing for this SUV, but when one of the classic Lambo hits the market, it usually goes over $ 300,000.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the cult SUV Chevrolet Blazer K5 was put up for auction. Before getting to the auction, the car was thoroughly restored. The last owner of this Blazer K5 bought it in 2018.
