Furlonger are delighted to offer this extremely rare, right hand drive Lamborghini Diablo 6. 0 VT.

Continuing the tradition of naming their outrageous supercars after that of bull fighting breeds, 1990 saw the debut of the formidable Diablo, or ‘Devil’ in Spanish. Rightly named after a ferocious bull raised by the Duke of Veragua in the 19th century, famous for an epic battle with ‘El Chicorro’ which took place in Madrid in 1869.

The Diablo’s initial design was of course penned by that of Marcello Gandini, a name synonymous within the Lamborghini realm most notable for the design of the sharp edged Countach. After some review and an extensive redesign to adopt smoother edges, the Countach’s hugely anticipated successor took the world by storm.

The cars power came from a 5. 7L engine with dual overhead camshafts, 4 valves per cylinder and computer operated multi-point fuel injection. A monstrous total of 485 horsepower meant that the Countach could reach 60 miles per hour in 4. 5 seconds and climb to an intimidating 202mph.

During the course of the Diablo’s production, which lasted for 11 years, a number of different versions were built ranging from the rear wheel drive base model a series of limited roadsters, special editions and finally the last of the series saw the 6. 0 Litre VT. By 1998 Audi AG had took over Lamborghini from its former southeast Asian owners, MyCom and V’Power had set out to modernise and refine the Diablo, while its replacement, the Murcielago was being developed. Audi asked then chief designer of Lamborghini Luc Donckerwolke to design a totally refined modern Diablo. The final result, the ‘VT’ 6. 0 featured significant styling changes both inside and out. Alongside these design changes came a total power output of 550 horsepower.

The example offered here today was delivered new to Auckland, New Zealand on 13/ 11/ 2000 to a Mr Ahane, finished in. The car was regularly maintained by specialists Powerhaus LTD of Wellington during its early life overseas and then Lamborghini main dealers when It arrived in the UK in 2014. Its current owner purchased the car from New Zealand where it was then shipped to the UK and it has remained in his ownership for the last 6 years. In 2016 the car underwent an extensive body restoration and engine rebuild after a failure occurred due to a wiring fault in the engine bay causing minor damage to the exterior of the engine and some of the rear body panels. The comprehensive restoration process was thoroughly documented from start to finish, evident from the photographs, invoices and email correspondence provided within the cars history. Despite the damage only affecting the rear section/ engine bay of the vehicle, no expense was spared when Marque specialist Hoyle Fox Classics went about recommissioning it. Almost the entire car was stripped, totally repainted, entire engine rebuilt with all necessary ancillaries passivated back to factory finish before being perfectly reassembled to the standard it left the factory in.

A superb example presented in marvellous condition, accompanied by a well-documented history, original books and both keys. Being supplied by Furlonger to its current custodian, the car has is well known to us and benefitted from a recent service within our workshops.

Should further information on the Diablo’s history or photos of its restoration be required it is available on request.
