Lifted Lamborghini Countach Looks Like an LM002, Is Neither

A high-riding Lamborghini from the 80s - it must be an LM002, right? Well, that match is accurate, albeit only when talking about actual Sant'Agata Bolognese machines. However, in the case of the contraption sitting before us, the LM moniker couldn't be further from the truth - Countach, anybody?

While this image, which showcases a Countach with the kind of ground clearance that would make an Urus jealous, doesn't come with any details, the pathway that led to the building of this contraption seems obvious.

To be more precise, we seem to be dealing with a kit car here. As such, the tech side sitting below these faux Raging Bull styling cues probably belongs to the good old Pontiac Fiero (oh, if only General Motors had imagined the replica craze its mid-engined project would generate...).

It does appear that the project is far from complete and yet the state seen here is enough to talk about the desired final form of the machine.

For one thing, the wheel and tire package is something to talk about - while these wheels, with their fat, shiny lips, seem like they could belong on a low-riding, speeding build, the all-terrain rubber is certainly up to the task of taming rugged areas.

Last, but certainly not least, there might be fewer reasons to hate this project that it might appear at first. For one thing, we now live in an age when more and more Lamborghini owners wish to customize their rides to an extreme level. So at least this one is a replica rather than an actual Italian exotic.

Speaking of the said wacky Lambo builds, this Huracan rally car wannabe, which came out before the automotive producer released the Steratto, is probably the best example to date, even though it's definitely not the only one.
