1999 LAMBORGHINI DIABLO “VT” ROADSTER #ZA9RU31B1XLA12334. (Stock #3880.) A worthy successor to the famed Lamborghini Countach, the Diablo was designed by Marcello Gandini, introduced in 1990 and was the first Lamborghini capable of speeds over 200 mph. The Diablo had continued development and improvements over the coming decade. The VT version, featuring all wheel drive, was introduced in 1993. In 1996, the first open top car built by Lamborghini—the Diablo VT roadster—was introduced and stunned the motoring world with its accentuated lines, wild design and fabulous performance. 466 of these cars were built in total with @100 being the final development group. Horsepower from the 12 cylinder, 48 valve, fuel-injected, 10:1 compression engine was increased to 523 in these cars and the performance figures -- 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and 0-150 mph in18.7 seconds with a top speed of 208 mph—were most impressive. At a cost exceeding $300,000, this performance did not come inexpensively, but was impressive nonetheless. The 18’ wheels measured 8.5 inches wide in the front and 13” wide in the rear. The ventilated and perforated power disc brakes were made by Brembo with aluminum 4 cylinder calipers. These cars sold new for more than $300,000—in 1999 dollars. Our car was sold new in 2000 San Antonio, Texas and @3 years later was purchased by a local (Far Hills) enthusiast and stored in his garage along with various Ferraris and other exotic toys. He has driven the car fewer than 2,000 miles during his 15 years of ownership and has kept it in new condition. Absolutely gorgeous in Titanium with black leather and carpets, both with grey piping, and black facia and door panels, both with grey stitching. There is nothing on the road which can be confused with a scissor-door Diablo roadster and there will most assuredly never be anything like it ever built again. 8,237 miles. $295,000.
