For the collector of rare vehicles, this 1990 Lamborghini LM002 “LM/American” represents a rare opportunity. First, a brief bit of history: Lamborghini developed a prototype military-style 4×4 called the Cheetah in the 1970s. The United States military ultimately passed, and Lamborghini would go back to the drawing board. Eventually, the designers’ efforts would yield the LM002, featuring a traditional front-engine configuration that used the Countach-derived 5.2-liter DOHC 48-valve V12. Just 48 of the vehicles were produced for the United States market, and one of those models — simply badged as the “LM/American” — is up for sale by the original owner. It came to the U.S. when Lamborghini received a special two-part order in 1990, one that specified an LM/American (the one shown here) and a Diablo for a grand total of $382,210. Both cars were delivered in June 1991. As previously mentioned, this is a one-owner truck, featuring a pearl white exterior and red leather upholstery. The odometer indicates an astoundingly low 5,400 kilometers (3,384 miles), and aside from the removal of expired tires, along with routine fluid, belt, and filter changes, the model is exactly the same as it left the factory in 1990. It’s up for sale now for $309,900.
