14. Lamborghini LM002
One interesting fact not many people know is that the Hummer H1 and this crazy V12-powered Italian SUV have the same DNA. In the late ’70s, the American government announced their new project to modernize their land forces with a new vehicle to replace the venerable Jeep. One of the companies that applied was Lamborghini with the Cheetah prototype.
But things got complicated, so the technology ended up in America for use by the AM General Company. They implemented the Hummer project and Lambo was left with the LM002, so they turned it into a passenger vehicle. Lambo nicknamed it “The Rambo Lambo,” and this truck was exactly that. It was the rugged, desert-going version of the supercars Lamborghini is well-known for making. The 5.2-liter unit with 400 HP was the same as you would find in the legendary Countach. For the buyers who thought that 400 HP was not enough, the factory could supply the LM002 with a 7.3-liter monster V12 engine from a racing boat.
