We are delighted to offer this very rare, 1 of 337 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT. The original Diablo was penned by Marcello Gandini, but while Audi took over ownership in 1998, the then chief designer of Lamborghini Luc Donckerwolke designed a totally refined modern Diablo. The final result, the ‘VT’ 6.0 featured significant styling changes both inside and out. Alongside these design changes came a total power output of 550 horsepower.
The Diablo VT 6.0 was formulated around the all-wheel-drive ‘viscous traction’ platform and utilized the 6.0-litre V-12 used in the limited-production Diablo GT model. With updated engine management software, the V-12 engine was capable of developing 549 bhp and a whopping 457 foot-pounds of torque. The increased displacement and revised control software improved the Diablo’s already prodigious performance, lowering 0–60 mph times to 3.8 seconds, while increasing top speed to nearly 210 mph.
The way this car handles is just fantastic, the chassis is precise, predictable and responsive while the powertrain is pure joy with the manual gearbox and the fabulous revised V12. This is such a great thrill to drive. This represents a great opportunity to acquire a beautiful and rare car, one of the most fabulous and iconic Lamborghinis ever built.

This Motor Car: The example offered here today was delivered new in Hong Kong in May 2001, originally finished in Giallo Orion (Yellow). The car was regularly maintained by Lamborghini during its early years until changing hands twice to its current keeper in 2010. The owner had the car's body restored and repainted into Matt White colour with blackened wheels and has since remained in his ownership for the last 11 years. In 2020 the car underwent an extensive inspection at Lamborghini Hong Kong. The condition was documented by a video as well as a parts list.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
Continuing the tradition of naming their outrageous supercars after that of bull fighting breeds, 1990 saw the debut of the formidable Diablo, or ‘Devil’ in Spanish. Rightly named after a ferocious bull raised by the Duke of Veragua in the 19th century, famous for an epic battle with ‘El Chicorro’ which took place in Madrid in 1869.
The Diablo’s initial design was of course penned by that of Marcello Gandini, a name synonymous within the Lamborghini realm most notable for the design of the sharp edged Countach. After some review and an extensive redesign to adopt smoother edges, the Countach’s hugely anticipated successor took the world by storm.
The cars power came from a 5.7L engine with dual overhead camshafts, 4 valves per cylinder and computer operated multi-point fuel injection. A monstrous total of 485 horsepower meant that the Diablo could reach 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds and climb to an intimidating 202mph.
During the course of the Diablo’s production, which lasted for 11 years, a number of different versions were built ranging from the rear wheel drive base model a series of limited roadsters, special editions and finally the last of the series saw the 6.0 Litre VT.
