    Not the Lambo you were probably thinking of, but their LM 4x4.

    It's even got switchgear, headlight switch and climate control from (what appears to be) a W124.

    I know for a fact, Mike Tyson purchased one of these in the UK, circa 1989, then commisioned the install of a major in-car entertainment system by a rather expensive sound & audio specialist in London, only to forget he even bought it!

    The vehicle languished at the back of their premisis untill the mid 90's, by which time he'd gone in & come out of prison. Eventually the sound people were able to sell the vehicle as payment for the install & storage.

    A guy who worked at the sound shop told me this... & one wonders how Tyson was able to squander 300 million dollers.

    Why? Because if it was 90k you'd buy it? ;)

    'Even' a proper one will cost you between £75k and £100k

    Those are Pirelli Scorpions and they're about 12" wide

    Allegedly this car has an E500 engine & transmission. The LM002 weighs over 2.6 tons so I would expect it to be slow

    I've driven one with the Countach engine and it was utterly appalling. The built quality was laughable. Interestingly the owner had a 300E to smoke around Geneva and the Lambo only came out for laughs

    You're right, it does have an E500 power unit and transmission, i've seen this linked off another forum before and that had engine pics.
