Designed as a limited-production model to commemorate Lamborghini’s 30th anniversary, the SE30 is in essence a street-legal race vehicle that is lighter and more powerful than the standard Diablo. Although equipped with the identical V-12 engine as found in the Diablo VT, the SE30 is mechanically superior to its counterpart; the SE30 tuned fuel system, magnesium intake manifolds, and free-flowing exhaust boosts power output to an astounding 523 brake horsepower and a top speed to over 200 mph.

Externally, chassis number 12020 is immediately recognizable as an SE30 by its straked brake cooling ducts and large rear spoiler, which served as the design basis for future models. The newly designed engine cover is highlighted by a series of louvers to improve aerodynamics and engine cooling. The first European-delivery example, and one of only 150 built in total, it is equipped with the SE30 magnesium alloy wheels, 30th Anniversary SE badging, and is finished in a spectacular shade of metallic purple specially developed for this model. Delivered new to an important Lamborghini client, chassis 12020 has special options that were selected at the time of purchase, including an Alcantara steering wheel, Jota-specification 400 km/h odometer, shorter gear-shift lever, and yellow-painted brake callipers.

The car was ordered through Achilli Motors in Milan and picked up directly from the factory by its first owner, who used the car on numerous rallies in Italy during his ownership. Later sold to another Lamborghini and supercar collector in Italy, the car eventually made its way to England, where it was purchased in 2015 by its current owner and returned to its native Italy.

Complete with books and tools, 12020 currently has 35,074 kilometres on its odometer and has recently been serviced. Furthermore, the car retains its original tools and owner’s manual, as well as an invoice listing the car’s full list of options.

The Lamborghini Diablo SE30 combines speed, function, and style to produce an embodiment of Lamborghini heritage and mechanical prowess, and this example, the first delivered to Europe, is certainly one to cherish.


Please note that this car is the 20th example built and the first SE30 delivered to Europe, as confirmed by Lamborghini Polo Storico.

Si prega di notare che questa autovettura, così come confermato dal Lamborghini Polo Storico, è la ventesima prodotta e la prima SE30 consegnata in Europa.
