Description

Furlonger have recently acquired this awesome Lamborghini Diablo SV, finished in Blue Scuro with Snowcorn hide interior.

In 1990, Lamborghini S.p.A introduced their latest mid-engine supercar, and of course continued their tradition of naming the cars after Italian fighting bulls. This monstrous car was named after a ferocious example raised by the Duke of Veragua in the 19th century known as ‘’Diablo’’, or in English, Devil.

The Diablo was a 2 door, rear wheel drive, mid-engine Coupe powered by a 5.7 Litre V12 engine which produced 490 horsepower which found its way to the tarmac via a 5-speed manual transmission, resulting in a 0-60 time of just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph.

This awesome car was the first to grace the ‘SV’ badge since the Miura, but with the badge of course came increased power which was now 510 bhp alongside other improvements/upgrades. These included larger front brakes, an adjustable spoiler and three piece wheels. It is believed that this is one of just a few examples to feature this colour combination. The car features SE30/Monterey edition side skirts and rear bumper, colour coded adjustable rear spoiler, carbon fibre rear light surrounds and dual fog lamps. The car’s interior is as impressive as the bodywork and is fitted with the correct combination of factory specified half leather and half alcantara. The interior features a number of carbon fibre additions such as the door sills, steering wheel cowl, centre console and dash surround. The SV is fitted with a Focal audio sound system with an integrated Navigation package.

Delivered new in January of 1998 by Lamborghini G.B of Reading to a Mr Cookson whom had the car maintained within the main dealer network for its first 2 services. The car has since been looked after by the reputable specialist Carrera Sport of West Sussex, evidence from numerous invoices as well as stamps in the cars original service book as well as a documentation folder will support this. In 2015 prior to the car being sold Carrera Sport carried out an engine out service in which no expense was spared to keep this Diablo totally ‘’On the button’’.

With the car is an extensive history file, numerous invoices, original service book, hand book, V5C’s and MOT’s.

An incredible, rare manual supercar with so much presence and style complete with a well-documented history and exceptional provenance.
