One of the last examples of the Lamborghini Diablo SV is up for grabs. Put up for sale by UK-based supercar and racecar specialists Super Veloce Racing, this particular Diablo SV is a 1998 model sporting a unique ‘Ice Blue’ exterior paint. The distinctive colour of the Diablo SV adds to the charm of what’s one of the best supercars of all time. Originally painted yellow, this example was given a coat of light blue metallic paint at the factory before it was placed on the Lamborghini stand at the 1999 British Motor Show. The original owner apparently purchased it straight from the show floor, complete with the ownership rights to the exterior colour.
The car also boasts some extra bits that are not seen in stock Diablos, such as SE side skirts, a carbon fibre gear lever, performance grade stainless steel exhaust system and a two-tone, grey and blue Alcantara interior with blue contrast stitching and the SV logo hand embroidered into the seats. Having clocked 6,941 miles (11,170 kilometres), the Diablo SV comes with a full Lamborghini service history, both keys and every original accessory in place, including a unique Lamborghini umbrella.
Launched in 1990, the Diablo was the first Lamborghini road car to hit a top speed in excess of 200mph (322kph), thanks to a rear-mid mounted 5.7-litre V12 sending 492 horses to the rear wheels. The SV, or Super Veloce variant was even more extreme, bumping up power to 510bhp with the same 580Nm of torque as the standard model, while a later version of the SV which came out in 1999 took these figures further up to 529bhp and 605Nm.
While average prices for a late Nineties Diablo SV hover around the Dh1.1 million range, the seller hasn’t released an expected price for this car. The supercar is available for viewing at Super Veloce Racing’s showroom located nearly 50 kilometres west of London, and since viewing is by appointment, we suggest you send an email to email@example.com before you take that flight to London.
