    The LM002 is a Hummer-style 4-door truck by Lamborghini, the brand more famous for high-performance Italian supercars. The LM002, also known as the Rambo Lambo, was produced in 1986 through 1993. Production was limited to 328 units, which has driven up the value of this powerhouse little truck.

    Lamborghini’s ambition to create military-ready vehicles didn’t pan out at first until the front-mounted V12 engine of the LM002 provided a more durable package. After the conceptual failures of both the unproduced Cheetah and LM001, the LM002 proved to be a far more effective design. It now sells for up to $392,000.

    Did you know?

    Lamborghini produced several prototype military and offroad trucks under the LM series, or the Lamborghini Militaria. It was started in an attempt to cut into the jeep market for more luxury sport clients. However, the whole brand line was discontinued in 1993.

He was also well-known as a professional racing driver, taking driver of the year in Sports Illustrated in 1956 and 1957. You may recognize his name and career from the 2019 film, Ford v Ferrari, where he was portrayed by Matt Damon.

  14. Price: $1 million
    Year: 2021

    The G63 Brabus by Mercedes-AMG handles like a bus but has the interior of a limo to match its price tag. The popularity of the Mercedes G Wagen encouraged them to make a celebrity version for their high-value clients. Enter the G63 Brabus, with a $1 million price tag for the limited “black and gold edition.” This is almost twice what the default version costs.

    This 6×6 G Class 2021 model has 700 hp behind the wheel. In just 4.1 seconds, this truck can get up to 62 mph, as well as having a top speed of 150 mph. This is the closest trucks will get to being a Mercedes supercar.

    Brabus was founded in 1977 and manufacturers not only Mercedes vehicles but also Maybach and Smart cars. Horsepower and on-road movement versatility are the company’s main priorities, reflected in the Mercedes G63’s unnervingly high specs for a car in its weight class.

The Takeaway

The automobile market has almost always offered options for high-performance offroad driving and hauling. However, it wasn’t until the 1948 Ford F-Series trucks that this class of vehicle became the most frequently bought in the United States. Since then, many brands have competed for dominance in the growing truck market, which includes upping the luxury on cars more commonly built for performance alone.

This list includes both the most expensive trucks ever sold and the priciest new trucks currently available. They combine both the high durability and power of their predecessors with modern luxuries for more high-end clients.
