Offering a more focused driving experience, Lamborghini’s Diablo SV was introduced in 1995. With its 5.7-litre V-12 producing 510 bhp and 580 nm of torque, performance was astonishing, with the SV boasting a 3.9 second sprint to 60 mph from a standstill, leading to a top speed of 191 mph. These cars were differentiated by their adjustable rear spoiler, revised engine lid with roof mounted air-scoops, and slightly larger front brakes. Most cars, like the example here, featured an attractive Alcantara interior only adding to its focused nature.
According to its original service book, this Diablo SV was delivered new to Crescenzo Grasso through Autocentro Service S.R.L of Mercogliano, Italy on March 25, 1999. Finished in its original shade of Rosso over an attractive colour scheme of Nero Alcantara seats and dashboard with Rosso carpeting, the car is also highlighted by red-painted, deep-dish wheels. Its only modifications from factory specification include a modern Sony stereo with upgraded speakers and a trunk-mounted amplifier. Importantly, the car retains its original keys, tool kit, manuals, and the aforementioned original service book.
Showing under 35,000 km, with less than 3,000 km driven in the last nine years, it presents as a well looked after Diablo and following a service, it would be a thrill to drive and enjoy on the open road.
