The Lamborghini LM-002, sometimes referred to as "The Jeep", is one of the eleven cars originally included in Stunts. This exotic "super SUV" has the dubious distinction of being the slowest of the regular Stunts cars by a sizeable margin, largely thanks to its top speed being a mere 125mph, far below anything else. LM-002's acceleration below 100mph, however, is not as puny as its top speed might suggest, allowing for credible performances on slower tracks; that explains why its coefficients in post-2008 ZakStunts are not much higher than those of other cars. Naturally, racers find that LM-002 demands are quite unique. Speed-based tricks and radical grass cuts are ruled out by default; on the other hand, drivers are forced to constantly push against the car's limits, often keeping it close to the top speed for most of a lap. That makes precise handling a must, and such a request usually clashes with the impatience induced by the low top speed... such a feature set has attracted few admirers among competition racers (which often find driving "The Jeep" a nerve-wrecking activity); LM-002 specialists usually are drivers with a natural inclination towards other "slow cars", such as Argammon and Zak McKracken.
