While Ferrari aficionados always contend supercars can’t be built by people who have farming vehicles as their heritage, we dare cross them by singling out the Diablo.
Without comparing the Lambos of old with the new ones made under Audi patronage, we can feel assured almost no one may contest our call – the Diablo was one of the hypercars of its days. And if you love the model like we do you might want to check your bank account – a pristine example of the classic Italian supercar – namely a Diablo SV made back in 1999 0 is up for sale now. This mint unit will show you how the 1990s were even more preposterous for petrol heads than the 1980s as we have a large selection of cool sports and super cars. The Diablo is arguably at the very top of that list – and the example we’re showing here is a 999 Diablo SV with only 1.1 miles (1.8 kilometers) on the odometer, now up for grabs in Montreal, Canada.
Dressed up in Titanium Gray, the model is just one of the 100 ever built and comes with subtle tweaks compared to the regular Diablo. More so, the SV has a reworked 5.7-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine churning out 530 horsepower (390 kilowatts) and 447 pound-feet (605 Newton meters) of torque. This is a regular widowmaker, since all the power is sent to the rear wheels, but if you’re up for it the travel time to 62 mph (100 km/h) will be a Flash experience of 3.85 seconds, with top speed billed at 201 mph (323 km/h). The asking price is of $499,000 – a match we say.
