this is the Lamborghini LM double-o to it was originally designed to be a military vehicle this is where the gunner would stand of course but unfortunately no Army’s wanted it so in 1986 Lamborghini decided to wrap it in leather add a tape deck and offer it to any ballsy customers that were interested the newest is coming but this one is the original super SUV under that bonnet is the super bit a 444 brake horsepower 5.2 liter v12 lifted straight from the Countach but because it weighs over 3 tons not 60 miles an hour still takes around 8 seconds and it drinks fuel at a frankly alarming rate 8 mpg if you’re careful lucky then that it has a 290 litre tank which in the UK will cost you 350 quid to fill up have it we’ve actually got a quarry to play in today which is fortunate really because this thing is probably a bit too wide for the road I’m surrounded here by a smattering of completely incomprehensible buttons I’ve got levers down here I honestly have no idea what that does that is the gear lever for the 5-speed manual but it’s placed so far away that I can barely reach it in this clutch pedal don’t even think about skipping leg day if you want to operate it well then we get to the steering because it’s a little bit like turning the wheel on an oil tanker you twist it around there’s either nothing happens or there’s a massive delay before anything meaningful happens it’s a bit like the engine to be honest it’s a glorious piece of engineering as we all know makes all the right noises but because it’s hauling around over three tons it’s a little bit sluggish luckily someone who is much cleverer than I am who knows what these levers do have turned this into two-wheel drive mode so currently I’m going around in circles in a quarry in a rear-wheel drive three ton Lamborghini oh ho oh that’s good fun well we can do some more Allah oh yes oh yes I’m dude skids in a Rambo Lambo here we go here we go oh yes stand by for some actual consumer advice because these things are now going for about 250 grand upwards which is pretty much the same price as a new wellspect horas so question is which one is the better Buy well if you live in a warzone have access to lots and lots of cheap fuel I can heartily recommend the LM double o2 for everyone else well there’s always the user
