The subject car of un-imaginable number of posters that hung on the walls of thousands of teenage enthusiasts in the mid to late-1990s, Lamborghini Diablos are being rediscovered as one of the most exciting supercars of its era. Despite being two decades old, it'll still turn heads where ever it goes.
The Lamborghini Diablo (meaning ‘Devil’ in Spanish) was introduced as Lamborghini’s new flagship in 1990 to replace their outgoing Countach. It used a 5.7L mid-mounted V12, with 4 valves-per-cylinder, dual overhead cams and fuel injection, which produced 485bhp and was Lamborghini’s first car to exceed the celebrated top speed of 200mph. While a handful of open-top Lamborghini concepts had been teased to the public in the company’s past, Lamborghini’s first production convertible and one of the most celebrated variants of the Diablo, would be the Diablo VT Roadster, the start of a wonderful line of Lamborghini V-12 roadsters.
The Diablo VT Roadster is one of the last of the Lamborghinis built before Audi took over the company. Exact numbers of these cars is a hotly disputed area, however it would be reasonable to assume around 400 Lamborghini Diablo 5.7L VT models were made between 1993 -1998, where approximately 10% were Right Hand Drive cars. Combining rarity, performance, looks, and an important place in Lamborghini’s history, it is worthy of any collection or Lamborghini aficionado.
This RHD Diablo VT Roadster we are offering originally left the Sant'Agata factory in Rosso Diablo over Tan color-way. During the current ownership, it has undergone a full paint refinish and now spotting an even more stunning Nero Black scheme combine with black wheel with polished lips and the beautifully contrasting original tan leather interior and carpeting. Delivered by the official Lamborghini Dealer in Hong Kong in September 1996 and has only 4 owners from new. This Diablo VT remained with a careful and meticulous custodian since 2003 and has been very well loved whilst in his care. It checks all the right boxes, featuring the original owner handbook, leather folio and tool roll, no accident records throughout its lifetime and the car drives excellently, with the gearbox, engine, brakes, suspension, cooling system all operating perfectly. Although the odometer is not functioning anymore, it is believed to have accumulated only 1000 kilometres a year.
