Unlike the performance-oriented Urus, which the company debuted last year, Lamborghini's original SUV was an off-road brute. Known colloquially as the Rambo Lambo, the Lamborghini LM002 was built from 1986 to 1993 and was based on a design from the late 1970s that was originally intended for military use. When the military project failed to get off the ground, Lamborghini opted in the mid-1980s to put the vehicle into production for civilian use, and thus the LM002 was born.

Only 328 examples of the LM002 were produced in about 7 years of production, making this not only one of the most bizarre vehicles to come out of this era, but also one of the rarest. Under the hood was a 5.2-liter V12 -- the same engine used in the Countach -- but in this case, it was located up front. If you wanted more power, Lamborghini let you order your LM002 with an even burlier 7.2-liter V12 engine that otherwise found use in offshore powerboats. Either engine came paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Altogether, the Lamborghini LM002 is exceptionally rare, and this is the only one currently for sale on Autotrader. It's a red 1988 model with a black interior, and it packs the optional 7.2-liter V12. It's in Boca Raton, Florida, with just under 17,000 miles on the odometer. While any LM002 can be sold in the U.S., only around 50 LM002s were specifically built to U.S.-market specifications. The buyer asserts that this one was purchased new in New Jersey in 1988, and therefore there's a good chance that it's a rare U.S.-spec model, although it's hard to say for sure with the information given. Either way, if you've got $350,000 to burn, this rare Lamborghini SUV, with its massive engine, is among the more interesting purchases you could make. Find a Lamborghini LM002 for sale
