Lamborghini LM002 Drifting in a Quarry Is The Top Gear Drive

Nowadays, the Lamborghini Urus is enjoying plenty of attention, but we like to use every possible occasion to remind the world that Lamborghini built SUVs before they became mainstream and companies like Porsche or Jaguar decided to make such toys. We are, of course, referring to the LM002 and we can now show you the thing strutting its V12 stuff around in a quarry.

The adventure we have here involves the Lambo Rambo being hooned around in rear-wheel-drive mode and, with the help of the slippery terrain, drifting comes naturally.

Since the piece of footage showcasing the action comes from Top Gear, the camera work is top notch, so you might want to sit down and enjoy this one.

Now, as for the power-to-weight ratio of the terrain tamer, there's one thing that isn't mentioned in the video - those who were unsatisfied with the 5.2-liter V12 lifted from the Countach could opt for a 7.2-liter V12 marine motor.

Returning to the Urus, it seems that the 650 horsepower of the high-riding bull aren't enough for certain owners. Of course, the aftermarket side of the industry is always glad to help, which is how we end up with velocity behemoth such as the 800 horsepower example we recently showed you.

To get an idea on what such an SUV is capable of, we'll mention that the said Lambo, which doesn't even feature hefty mods, has the potential to deliver 10-second quarter-mile runs.

So far, the Sant'Agata Bolognese-built, American-tuned contraption has managed to pull a clean 11s pass. However, with the help of cooler weather and perhaps the prepped surface of the drag strip, the thing will be able to keep up with supercars.

And, as you can imagine, the Lamborghini Urus tuning tales won't stop here, so we might just see examples with four-digit outputs next year.
