Ever Wondered Why Lamborghini Called Their SUV The LM002?

It's because the name "Lamborghini Militaria 001" (or "Lamborghini Mimran 001" since the Swiss family just bought into the company) was already taken by this. It took Lamborghini two expensive and completely useless prototypes to finally reach perfection with the third design (and a V12). » 4/05/13 3:00pm 4/05/13 3:00pm

The Bulls Ferruccio Lamborghini Named The Miura After

Namesake for not only the eponymous 1966 supercar but most Lamborghinis, noted by Hemingway and countless dead matadors, these are the cunning, ferocious Miura bulls of Andalusia. » 12/27/10 2:30pm 12/27/10 2:30pm

Ten Vehicles That Don't Belong On BuisnessWeek's 50 Ugliest Cars List

We're convinced BusinessWeek intentionally created its "Fifty Ugliest Cars of the Past 50 Years" list to offend Jalopnik reader sensibilities as much as possible. We've pulled out ten cars that simply have no place on this list. Two-minutes hate ahead. » 11/03/09 4:30pm 11/03/09 4:30pm

Lamborghini Confirms "Very Expensive" Limited-Edition Sports Car For…

While speaking to Philipp Encz and Chad Thomas from Bloomberg News and other members of the Euro auto press today about the 25% uptick in sales at VW's Lamborghini brand for the first eight months of the year, Lambo president Stephan Winkelmann confirmed that yes, the rumors we've been hearing about are in fact… » 9/04/07 11:30am 9/04/07 11:30am

Lamborghini SUV?

The tale of Lamborghini's projected new SUV is long and sordid and fraught with Hollywood-grade rumor, conjecture and speculation. Our geek selves once described the saga as having more yesses and nos than a Centrino processor. The latest word came last November, when the UK's Car reported Lamborghini was indeed… » 8/30/07 6:46am 8/30/07 6:46am

Explain Your Nomadism

Today's question comes to us courtesy of commenter AdamSonar and it reads like this: » 7/18/07 12:40pm 7/18/07 12:40pm

Speak for your own mind, Mr. Sonar. We who exist in the form of Jalopnik are quite steady on this issue. We convert all of our worldly assets into the only material that will be worth anything after the apocalypse – gold bullion and…

Blowing Up Uday's Rambo Lambo

It can be safely said that we were no great fans of Saddam Hussein's son Uday. But we do feel sorry for his poor, beleagured Lamborghini LM002. Apparently a group of American soldiers, not realizing what the vehicle was, decided that it would be an ideal platform for studying the effects of a car bomb on a concrete… » 3/19/07 4:30pm 3/19/07 4:30pm

What Would a New Lamborghini SUV Look Like?

No matter what Lamborghini execs say about the company's plans, or lack thereof, to build a new SUV, the Photoshop artistes will inevitably keep on with their pasty selves. If it does exist some day, the successor to the LM002 "Rambo" Lambo likely won't be quite as batshit insane as the original V12-powered,… » 12/19/06 3:18pm 12/19/06 3:18pm

Oil Rich Shieks Rejoice: Lamborghini to Build LM002 Successor!

My most vivid LA Auto Show memory happened when I was about ten-years-old. Pops and I walked from one of the Convention Center's main rooms and into the ante-room which housed such automotive misfits as the Vector W8. It was in this tent room that I first laid eyes upon the Italian glory that was; the LM002. AKA… » 11/28/06 6:21am 11/28/06 6:21am

What Would a Dolphin Painter Drive: A Rambo Lambo, of Course

With two posts already devoted to porpoisefull (heh heh) auto paint jobs by Yanni of the airbrush, Christian Lassen, imagine our surprise when a tipster revealed a 1990 Lamborghini LM002 "Rambo Lambo" once owned by Lassen has popped up for sale on eBay. With Lassen's mammalian subjects so undisturbed as to make a… » 1/17/06 12:10pm 1/17/06 12:10pm
