Modern Lamborghinis are awesome, no doubt, but there’s just summin’ cool about the 90s models. If you didn’t have a poster of a Lamborghini Diablo on your bedroom wall or the cover of one of your school books, you’re not a motoring fanatic. Well, not one born before 2000 anyway. The car was first launched in 1990 and it has the most insane styling, it was pure automotive porn. The Diablo’s production run lasted a good 11 years, and in that time a total of 2,884 were produced. That run covered two generations of Diablo, under Generation 1 there was the regular Diablo, the Diablo VT, Diablo SE30 and SE30 Jota, the Diablo SV, and the Diablo VT Roadster. The 2ne generation covered updates to the Diablo SV, the Diablo VT and VT Roadster, the Diablo GT and the Diablo VT 6.0 and VT 6.0 SE. In and among all of those cars there were a few special editions too, and the one that’s just come up for sale is quite possibly one of the most special of those special editions. In 1997/8, Lamborghini took a pair of the Gen 2 Diablo SVs off the regular production line and had them made in roadster format. Just two. This makes it one of the rarest 90s Lamborghinis, and for the collector out there, one has just come out of the woodwork after many years and is headed for auction over at RM Sotheby’s. It’s one of those sealed auctions which means it will be an online affair, and that opens it up to collectors around the world. This means it should fetch pretty decent money because there will definitely be more bids taking place than at an open auction. It also allows anonymous bidding, which means one of those 10-year-old YouTube stars can buy one for their toy box. This specific car looks absolutely amazing in that Giallo over Nero Torpedo Alcantara. Basically yellow with a black interior.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the pros at Carfection from the time they got hold of a Diablo SV to do an in-depth review. Of course, it's not the über-limited edition SV Roadster, no one in their right mind would hand the keys from one over for someone else to drive it like a rental, but it gives you an idea of how good 90s automotive porn can be: Lamborghini Diablo SV: Road Review | Carfection 4K | Carfection
