59. Lamborghini LM002 1986-1993

The Lamborghini LM002 was a sports utility vehicle produced by Lamborghini in the 1980’s and early 90’s. The vehicle was a major departure for the company known for building high performance grand tourers and sports cars. Lamborghini began experimenting with designs for a military vehicle in the late 70’s. Dubbed the Rambo-Lambo, the LM002 was, by all accounts, a failure, however, it was loud, large, featured a V12, and was the first high performance, luxury SUV. Some civilian models were made, but they weren’t popular. Only 328 of this anomaly were actually produced. One of which was owned by Uday Hussein, son of disposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. In 2004, the US military used Uday’s LM002 to demonstrate the effects of a car bomb.
