Sultan of Brunei's 1-of-3 converted Lamborghini LM002 wagon needs tires that cost $54,000

It’s a well-known fact that the Sultan of Brunei has a pretty extensive car collection, and that includes this unbelievable Lamborghini LM002.

To be frank, calling the collection ‘pretty extensive’ is playing it down a little – the family has spent billions of dollars buying more than 7,000 cars.

As well as including an ultra-rare Bentley Turbo R wagon, there’s another car in the collection that is even more spectacular.

The vehicle in question is a Lamborghini LM002, which has been converted from a pickup truck to a wagon.

Rumor has it, it’s one of three that were built, but only this one has Lamborghini’s stamp of approval.

In other Lambo-related news, the Italian automaker just unveiled the limited-edition Huracán STJ, so rare there are only 10 units.

Honestly, check that car out – it’s really something.

If the truth be told, the regular Lamborghini LM002 is already a rare sight, with only around 300 being produced between 1986 and 1993.

No longer owned by the Sultan of Brunei, the long-roof conversion is part of an eclectic collection of cars in Sweden belonging to high-end dealer Motikon.

The vehicle’s conversion from a truck to a wagon added around 1,100 pounds (499 kg), resulting in a curb weight of more than 6,600 pounds (2,994 kg).

To make matters worse, the Lamborghini LM002 also has a thirsty V12 engine sourced from the Countach, so fuel consumption must cost an eye-watering amount.

That being said, the 1989 Lamborghini LM002 is in great shape, having only covered around 6,200 miles (9,978 km).

Apparently, Motikon intends to spruce it up here and there, but it’s already looking like a time capsule.

Although the off-roader wasn’t converted to the wagon body style by Lamborghini, the automaker officially sanctioned it.

The story goes, that the Sultan of Brunei only drove it for around 1,100 miles (1,770 km) before offloading it to former BMW and Volkswagen CEO, Bernd Pischetsrieder.

Then it changed hands again, and a Swedish woman used it to drive her kids to school, which is understandable considering there’s plenty of space inside, with three passenger seats and three benches.

But after 35 years, it’s in dire need of a fresh set of rubber, with Motikon founder and CEO, Filip Larsson, saying he’s currently negotiating a set but there’s apparently only one in the world available.

The cost? Just a cool $54,000.

Still, that’s nothing compared to dropping $4 million on a Lamborghini yacht.
