Be­fore there was the Urus, there was the LM002. Based on a still­born mil­i­tary pro­to­type that never reached pro­duc­tion, the LM002 was a lux­u­ri­ous su­per SUV be­fore the world wrapped its mind around the con­cept. With a V-12 en­gine from the Lam­borgh­ini Coun­tach sit­ting up front and a 76-gal­lon fuel tank, ex­am­ples bought new in the pros­per­ous 1980s were soon sell­ing for a mere frac­tion of their $158,000 MSRP a decade later, though the re­cent re­bound in LM002 val­ues has been strong among a new, younger set of buy­ers. This ex­am­ple was re­stored to the tune of $325,000, put­ting the pur­chase price in some con­text.
