You could be the lucky owner of this 1988 Lamborghini LM002

    Only problem is you gotta go to Kuwait City to pick it up

    Lamborghini LM002s tend to change hands at a relatively impressive rate, considering Lambo only built around 300 units from 1986 to 1993. Every year, one or two examples in good condition appear in the pre-owned market and they always sell well. This particular model was built in 1988 and it is expected to fetch anywhere between 250,000 and 300,000 dollars at auction.

    This 1988 LM002 was originally shipped to Sweden and after spending several years in the North, it eventually went back to Italy, where it lived in a museum for a spell. It was then exported to the UK in 2015 to live in another museum and then, two years later, it was sold again to its current owner and seller. Acording to the listing, "this lot will need to be collected from Kuwait City", which means it somehow ended up in Kuwait. Interesting.

    It sits on Pirelli Scorpion Zero tyres, it has a new battery and a new clutch, new oil filter and new tank float sensor. All various invoices and relevant papers are present and accounted for, of course.

    It's painted in Acapulco Blue with grey interior with wooden inserts, everything is in great condition, not perfect, which is quite refreshing in a way, because it means somebody has actually driven the truck occasionally. In fact, the car has done 10,719 miles which is not a lot in absolute terms, considering this is a 34-year-old car, but it's more than average when it comes to rare cars. Speaking of which, the 400-hp 5.2-litre V12, sourced from the Countach, is working perfectly, and so is the ZF five-speed manual transmission.

    With only a few days to go (4 at the time of writing), the auction has received 4 bids and the high bid currently sits at 145,000 dollars. The auction closes on November 19.

    • I would take this over the similarly priced Countach

    • So ugly, so impractical, so expensive, so why do I want one?

    • Does the price we are guessing include the old tube sock that was exchanged for the gear shifter boot?
