Classic Car Overview

Painted in yellow with a black alcantra/leather interior, this car is one of 132 produced between 1997 and 1999 for the U.S. market, and its main attraction is both its near-sinister appearance and the viscous traction (VT) all-wheel-drive system. This adaptation could direct up to 25 percent of the torque to the front wheels to aid traction when rear-wheel slip was detected, significantly increasing the handling prowess of the vehicle. The roadster configuration further used an electrically operated targa top, which stored above the engine lid when not in service. Also altered from the fixed-top VT model was a revised front bumper and headlamp configuration, with a final top-speed rating of 202 MPH. Horsepower comes from the mid-mounted 5.7L/485 HP V-12 engine, with dual external air intakes and body-paint-matched valve covers. This transfers power through a 5-speed manual transmission and the special differential layout. A carbon-fiber rear wing works in conjunction with other body-fitted aero-stylings to keep the car tight to the pavement. Bold yellow Brembo brake calipers with Lamborghini script logo markings will be put to appropriate use as well. Inside the luxury interior is an upgraded Alpine stereo head unit with a JL audio amplifier, brushed suede-leather bucket seating and dash trim, performance-design seat belts, emergency window cranks and windshield head cushions. This car even uses carbon-fiber windshield wiper attachments. Named for a legendary bull of the 19th century, the Diablo VT was never a car for the masses, built for the serious enthusiast who respects its fearsome capabilities. With the owner’s manual and tool kit both included, this Lamborghini Diablo VT is sure to continue its headstrong legacy under new ownership.

The current owner recently had a engine out rebuild by the famous Evans Automotive (George Evans) for a cost nearly $40,000. I have all of the 2013 invoices (George Evans) and the recent 2019 invoices. Evans automotive is known as the head Lamborghini shop in the US ( http://www.evansauto.com/ ).  The car drives great and it is ready to for fun. It was completed fully less than 300 miles ago.  This was a 2 months engine out complete top engine and transmission rebuild. This car is ready to be driven without the headache of mechanical concerns/issues. 

The interior is in great shape with a complete update of alcantra/leather. I would give interior a 8.5/10. The exterior is in great shape. (Minor paint touch up shows on passenger side door and minor wear on the carbon fiber wing). I would give the exterior a 8/10. Carfax shows accident in 2009 (no airbags deployed). No issues or signs on previous accident. The underside of the car looks great. The radio does not work. Brand new tires. This one drives great. Rare car.

The car had the incident in 2009. I was told that the driver ran off the road and hit a guardrail. The front bumper/back bumper were damaged. No airbags or structural issues. The mileage confusion is common as the DMV has issues recording kilometers instead of mileage. The car currently has 97,000 range km = 60,000  mile range.
