The LM002 was an all terrain SUV built by Lamborghini.  Its name stands for Lamborghini Militaria 002.   Two other prototypes were built and were rejected.  Finally, they decided to build a new chassis around Lamborghini’s own v12 countach engine and the legendary LM002 was born.    I used to see a black one at a local car dealership in my neighborhood when I was in high school.  The car was listd for $50,000 and I remember stories of how expensive the tires were and how it was used by the Saudis as a military vehicle with machine guns.   It sat on their showroom for at least a year.   These cars were build from 1986 to 1993 and was the first four wheel drive model manufactured by Lamborghini.    This one is an American model which includes the full luxury package.

  • full leather trim
  • tinted power windows
  • air conditioning
  • premium stereo mounted in a roof console

Interesting Fact:  On 18 July 2004, at a US military base near Baqubah, members of the American military used an LM002 that had belonged to Uday Hussein to simulate the effects of a car bomb

Pirelli tire Company was commissioned to create new tire for the LMOO2.   The Scorpion tire was designed for Lamborghini as a custom  run flat tread design.   When new these tires were $1,000 each.

Two  different tread designs were offered, one for mixed use and the other for sand use only.    There run flats could be run virtually flat without issue and were suited for desert heat and the speeds capable of the LM002.

NOS Pirelli Scorpion ZERO Tires (OEM) are $10,000 USD. (set of 4)

New Pirelli Scorpion Tires are about $11,500 USD (set of 5)  ~ mixed use tire, not sand rail tire

At lease the rubber is fresh but the handling dynamics are not up to par with the original run flats.

The Sand Rail Tire below  are 345/60 VR 17

Pirelli did make a new batch of tires for the LM002 called the Scorpion BK in small batches.

They were inferior to the original scorpions which could ride with no air pressure due to the stiff sidewalls of the run flat tire.    It allowed the car to be driven at low speeds to a repair facility.   the new tires have alot more body roll but considering the options, its good to get new rubber on the car.    Not good to drive on 20+ year old rubber except for Concours Events.

Its difficult to tell if there is enough air in these tires due to the stiff side walls.  They will look normal so they must be checked regularly.    The original tires were designed with military applications in  mind which is why they are so robust and durable.

This 1990 model has the later hood with the smaller hood bulge (above).   The earlier cars has a large center bulge to accommodate a huge air cleaner mounted over the 6 weber carburetors.   When the car was converted to fuel injection , the hood no longer needed a huge air cleaner so the hood bulge was minimized.   I prefer the more aggressive look of the earlier models but this helped with driver visibility.
