Rare Lamborghini Diablo SV up for grabs

Super Veloce Racing (SVR) is accepting applications for a very rare Lamborghini Diablo SV.

The first Lamborghini road car capable of a top speed of more than 200mph, the Diablo was launched in 1990 - with this particular car being described as one of the last truly original examples.

Believed to be one of the last ‘unmolested’ Diablos in the world, it is presented by SVR - a company established and operated by ex-Lamborghini Service Manager Alan Robb and ex-Lamborghini works driver and Master Technician Lee Cunningham.

With a rear-mid mounted 5.7-litre V12 delivering 492hp, and rear wheel drive the Diablo had a production run of 11 years. The SV model was introduced in 1995 and was only the second model in Lamborghini’s history to wear the ‘Super Veloce’ title after the legendary Miura.

This particular example offered by SVR is one of the last built - a 1998 ‘Ice Blue’ one-off - it's the only Lamborghini in the UK to be finished in this colour. Originally painted yellow, Lamborghini added a fine coat of light blue metallic to give a pearlescent finish. This was done especially for this car, as it started its life on the Lamborghini stand at the 1999 British Motor Show. Purchased from the show, the original owner also purchased the ownership rights to the colour, thus securing this example’s place in history as truly unique.

Complementing the already formidable specification are a select few upgrades, opted for and fitted during production at the factory. This includes SE side skirts, a carbon fibre gear lever, a performance grade stainless steel exhaust system and a two-tone alcantara interior. The interior was a special order item and included grey, light and dark blue shades of the material covering every aspect of the car’s interior, with the SV logo hand embroidered into the seats, complete with blue contrast stitching.

SVR says the two previous owners have kept the car in exceptional condition, and it comes with just 6,941 miles from new, along with a fully detailed history file, full Lamborghini service history, both keys and every original accessory in place, and even a rare Lamborghini umbrella.

Applications are now being accepted for the Lamborghini Diablo SV, with viewing strictly by appointment. Price is on application.
