The Lamborghini Diablo was to enjoy great success, its production was over 2,000 models, but the roadster remained more confidential: its production is estimated to be about 300 models. The exact number is not known, as the archives of this period were not completely conserved.
The car we are offering is not just one of these rare Convertible / Roadster VTs (with four wheel drive) but also one of the "Purple 30th Anniversary" models with their special detailing.This car was sold new in Monaco on 22nd March 1999. It has been regularly maintained since new by P3 Automobiles in Cannes. The present owner, a sports car enthusiast, bought it in early 2014. Just before the sale, the Diablo was given a 24,000 km service (the speedometer reading 25,412 km), and the sports exhaust system was replaced by the original equipment exhaust. The sports exhaust is included in the sale and will be supplied to the buyer. In July 2015 the shock absorbers were reconditioned and a set of four Pirelli P Zero was fitted to the original 18 inch wheels.
A technical report dated September 2015 states that the car shows no sign of accident damage and that the bodywork is correctly fitted. The underpinnings and the bodywork are in good order and the interior is spotless, finished as it is in in a combination of electric blue Alcantara with cream and blue leather piped in purple.
The car will be delivered with two leather suitcases, a made to measure car cover, its service handbook fully stamped up and its original tool kit. With little use and a bare 30,000 km on the clock, and always regularly serviced, this open sports car offers an irresistible mixture of exceptional performance and wildly attractive coach work. To top it all, it's a seriously rare car.
