By the end of the 90’s, automakers were struggling to keep pace with changing automotive technologies. Traction control and AWD were offered on supercars, and the winds of change were blowing at Lamborghini. Audi purchased Lamborghini in 1998 and went to work revolutionizing the brand. So the 1998 Lamborghini Diablo might be the last true Italian Exotic. Today the SV “Super Veloce” editions are the most expensive because they are the most powerful, but this wasn’t the case back then.
The 1998 SV made the most power and was capable of the fastest top speeds. But it was not offered with AWD. Aimed at enthusiasts, the SV arrived with larger brakes and more aggressive looks than other Diablo models. Fancy aerodynamics were added to make the car stable at high speed, and no details were overlooked. Even the windshield wiper arms had spoilers to keep them in place. This allowed the Lamborghini Diablo SV top speed to exceed 200 mph. Automatic transmissions were not offered, and the pedals are carefully sculpted for your Ferragamos. Loaded with all the power options, this rare SV has climate control, power steering, power mirrors, electronic suspension. As one of the last production cars to be styled by Marcello Gandini, his signature can be found on a badge above the rocker panels.
A true automotive time capsule, this Diablo has been stored inside since new. Having only amassed 3,512 miles, you can party like its 1999 without worrying about Y2K. Located in Miami, Driving Emotions has a knack for finding low mileage classics, and they are offering a great deal on this Diablo SV.
