Just on the heels of the new Lamborghini Urus release, a super-rare 1990 American-spec Lamborghini LM002, otherwise known as the "Rambo Lambo," was sold at auction for $467,000. Though this might seem like an astronomical price for a quarter-century old Italian SUV, it's actually pretty cheap in our books for something so iconic.
RM Sotheby's sold the vehicle with a mere 19,153 original miles on the odometer, but what's most amazing about it is the comprehensive five-year mechanical and cosmetic restoration that was performed to bring it to its original glory. This LM002 was originally priced at $158,000 before the restoration when it came to the U.S., so you can see the amount of work that went into it. We'd take this over the newer, more high-tech, and faster Urus any day of the week.
The restoration cost a whopping $325,000, restoring and reworking aspects such as the V12 engine, providing a new exhaust a brand new interior with an Alpine stereo head unit and integrated Bluetooth wireless tech. The LM002 also comes with the rear cargo toolbox, tonneau cover, and correct LM/American floor mats and chrome bumpers. Hell, we would've taken this thing totally unrestored. It's just that awesome.
