You might remember Lamborghini’s LM002. One of the first people to purchase an LM002 back in the 1908s was Sylvester Stallone, of “Rambo” movie fame, which inspired the vehicle’s “Rambo Lambo” nickname. Since that era, you may have always wanted to own this V-12, three-ton off-road monster that goes from 0-60 in under 8 seconds, and carries a 75-gallon fuel tank. At its Miami auction in December, RM Sotheby’s is offering a 1991 LM002, with under 6,000 miles on the odometer, which is #279 out of 328 made. Putting this Rambo Lambo in your driveway is guaranteed to make a statement to the neighbors.

If you paid $1.32 million for a 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition with only 7 miles on the odometer, would you drive that car?

Mecum’s total sales of $217 million (with a 90% sell-through rate) marks the first collector car auction to surpass $200 million for a single event. Read about the top selling cars.
