I realized Lambo made an SUV before but it was at least manly and beastly. This one looks like a Mazda CX-9 with a slightly beefier body. Pretty dorky and useless.

So, lets recap the REAL signs of the end of the world:

1) Ferrari elminates the true manual transmission forever
2) Porsche is building 4-door sedans and sappy SUVs
3) Lambo is making Mazda-certified SUVs
4) Lotus is almost out of business.

I hope the planet collapses on itself and becomes a brown dwarf star. We desrve no less for these travesties. :mad:

:D

Heres a link to the Mazda...errrr....Lamblo: Lamborghini to unveil SUV - 'The Lamborghini of SUVs' (1) - CNNMoney

Lambo SUV!!!!

Lets go bush bashing!!!!
Thats definitely what it must be made for!:cool:

Err........... I stand corrected, its for taking the kids to school.

Just Pointless like all the other sport SUVs. Rediculous concept, can't even take them up a kerb without bending the low profile blingy mags.

SUV fashion is just becoming a joke. :sheep::sheep::sheep:

Let's not forget the ferrari FF. That thing is fuggly!

This is purely about making money. I'm sure there wasn't a lot of R&D. Build it on a Q7 frame, throw a Gallardo engine in and an Audi infotainment system and charge 200k. Smile all the way to the bank when every star and the uber rich want one.

Guys, you are forgetting the Maserati Kubang and the hideous Bentley SUV that is coming out.

Can't wait to see what happens when a pimp from Dubai or a lame unknown rapper get a hold of that Bentley SUV and hand the keys over to Mansory for some bling bling.

Lamborghini was fundamental in the mega military SUV on the road gig... they are a tractor company after all.

seems consistent they should modernize their SUV product to me?

This is still a concept though, how many have made it to full production looking the exact same way that they did when they were initially unveiled.

I think they are pretty lame, but they will sell a bunch of them especially to the Middle East, China, Eastern Europe, and Miami.

For some reason I thought of the Pontiac Aztec when I saw those pics. Maybe I'm just anticipating the new season of Breaking Bad.
Anyway I didn't bother reading the article, but do the doors open vertically?

gee, a Lambo SUV.... They actually had one before Porsche or BMW...

Yep - I did mention that. The original one(pictured) was also tough and obnoxious like SUVs are supposed to be. This new one looks...well.... cant say it due to forum rules. ;)

You're calling a 600HP SUV lame, what do you want from me? :D
Yeah, I actually am. Its SO not about horsepower anymore. Its just wrong on all levels. As I said, this is a real sign of the end of the world. Humans dont deserve to go on if this is what we are going to do. :)

The LM002 started as a design for a Military vehicle, but ended up a civillian vehicle. Think Hummer H1, but with the V12 from a Countach. Insane like a Lambo should be.

This thing shares the platform with the Porche Cayenne/VW Touareg/Audi Q7 and has a Lambo body kit. Lame.
