A pristine 1989 Lamborghini LM002 is set to go under the hammer at the RM Auctions event on January 16.
This particular Lamborghini LM002 is finished in red and one of just a handful of examples to call the United States home. This car was originally produced in March of 1988 and throughout its 26-year life has had just two owners. Additionally and contrary to what you may expect for a car of its age, this Lamborghini LM002 has covered just over 30,000 km and should consequently still be in good running order.
Interestingly, the car is still rolling on the original Pirelli Scorpion tyres it left the Sant’Agata production with. Beneath the skin is a 5.2-litre V12 engine delivering a total of 444 hp and complete with no less than six Weber carburettors. Drive is then sent to all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission and helping to ensure the LM002 is as capable as possible off-road, it features independent front and rear suspension.
Pre-auction estimates suggest that the car could sell for between $175,000 and $225,000.
