Behold...The Rambo Lambo

The terms "exotic" and "SUV" seldom go together. With few exceptions, the closest you might get is the Porsche Cayenne, or in reference to the rig you use to tow your supercar from track to concours. One notable exception is the Lamborghini LM002. Nicknamed the "Rambo Lambo", it bridged the gap between the company's tractor and supercar divisions in a military truck that makes the HUMMER look like a Tonka. It was powered by the V12 out of the Countach, and only 300 were said to have been built. With those limited numbers, they don't change hands all that often. I've seen my share of exotic cars but this was a first for me. I had no idea what it was when i first laid eyes on it in upstate New York. After a little research on wikipedia I realized that the car is extremely rare and a huge failure for Lamborghini. Imagine rolling through Central business district or TST in this monster! K.
