One of the world’s rarest Lamborghinis is currently sitting in Dutton’s Garage, Melbourne, waiting for its next owner to rock up with some loose change.
It’s a 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV Roadster, and it’s only got 17,900km on the clock, with a full history available and an apparently large amount of work performed on it recently – someone forked over $100K to Zagame’s for the invoice.
Oh, and it’s right-hook, which means it’s one of two in the world.
Though we’re unsure if its next owner will get to experience this, the SV’s 395kW/605Nm 5.7-litre V12 will propel the car to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds, and then on to a top of 353km/h. Impressive stuff for the ‘90s, and still only a second slower than a current Aventador.
Advertised with an unsurprising POA, the uncommon Italian should fetch a few hundred-thousand at the very least, considering a (slightly) more common Australian-delivered Diablo is also at Dutton’s with a tag of $419,990 hanging off it.
You do get a lot of car for the money, though. Plus, buying a V12 Lambo is the best way to enjoy Lambo doors. They're just not the same on a Celica.
The Diablo was designed by Marcello Gandini, who should sound familiar as the man who designed Lamborghini’s Miura, Countach, and Urraco among others, as well as BMW’s first 5 Series, and the Lancia Stratos.
We can’t be sure if he anticipated a Pioneer car stereo being plonked into the centre console, though.
If you’re in Melbourne with a lot of spare cash, or are willing to give up a few internal organs, drop into Dutton’s Garage and have a chat with the custodians of this topless Italian.
