The Diablo is considered by many classic car lovers to be the last of the true Lamborghinis, and by that they mean Lambos from the pre-Audi era, before the Germans injected the brand with a healthy dose of common sense. A wonderful example of these original bulls, a pristine 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV, is now up for grabs.
Offered by Silverstone Auctions during their sale at the Practical Classics Restoration and Classic Car Show, this Pearl Red/Orange Lamborghini Diablo SV (one-off color) has covered only 32,000 miles and is significant not just because of the color, the condition, or the SVR badge it is sporting, but also because it was the last Diablo SV off the production line before they shut down the factory for the Christmas break. So it’s the last Diablo of the 20th Century!
Estimated at between £150,000 and £170,000, the 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV also features grey/black leather/alcantara interior and still has its original Lamborghini tool roll, tyre inflator and a very luxurious, custom-made, fleece-lined indoor car cover in red with an embroidered Lamborghini logo. The car has undergone a chassis and suspension restoration in 2013 at a cost of over £10,000. So it’s ready to be driven. But you best put in a garage and wait a few years. It could easily triple or quadruple your investment.
