Presented today is one of the rarest Lamborghinis ever made. This Diablo SV Roadster is one of two right-hand drive models built in 1999. The SV Roadster ceased production after Audi took over Lamborghini in 1998 and all rear wheel drive projects (SV) were cancelled, only six had been built, four of which were in LHD specification. However, having undergone nine years of development, motoring journalists hailed Lamborghini’s efforts with the 1999 SV as: the best built, best looking Diablo of all time.” With 1450 kg, accompanying carbon fibre components and a 5.7-litre V12 engine producing 530bhp and 445lb/ft of torque, 62 mph comes up in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 204 mph. This incredible power is channelled to the huge rear wheels with no electronic driver-aids to soften the experience. In this case, the Diablo certainly justifies its Spanish translation, the ‘Devil’. Presented here with service history and 21,500 miles on the odometer, T718 KEO comes complete with past and present MoTs, current V5 registration document and receipts from the past 12 months in excess of £20,000. In addition, the car features: anti-lock brakes, driver airbag, climate control, electric windows, CD player, leather seats and new brake discs and pads. This model has also been fitted with three cameras – on the front, rear and inside – to allow drivers to film their journeys. This unique rear wheel drive Diablo certainly differs from today’s Lamborghinis, offering the ultimate driving experience. Arguably, the SV Roadster represents the last of the truly flamboyant Lamborghinis that encapsulated the evocative philosophy of a company unwilling to compromise on practicality or subtle designs..
