Why US troops blew up Uday Hussein’s rare Lamborghini SUV in Iraq | Military.com

Must Read

Despite the effort to meet the requirements for the US military, Lamborghini’s prototype Cheetah wasn’t able to make it due to not having enough power. Despite failing, Lamborghini created a new prototype, the LM001. The LM001 had a different engine but mounting it in the rear of the vehicle still caused handling problems. Lamborghini ended up moving the engine to the front and replaced it with a V12, which they called the LM002 or Rambo Lambo. LM002 became a luxury SUV and has ended in the hands of ultra-wealthy buyers, such as the Sultan of Brunei and Uday Hussein, son of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. After being killed in 2003 by the US 101st Airborne Division, troops blew up his LM002, which looked like an old beat up SUV, during a demonstration to test concrete barriers protecting their base.
