The Diablo VT was introduced by Lamborghini in 1993. Although the VT differed from the standard Diablo in a number of ways, by far the most notable change was the addition of all wheel drive, which made use of a viscous center differential. This provided the new nomenclature for the car (VT stands for viscous traction). The new drivetrain could direct up to 25% of the torque to the front wheels to aid traction during rear wheel slip, thus significantly improving the handling characteristics of the car.
Other improvements debuting on the VT included front air intakes below the driving lamps to improve brake cooling, larger intakes in the rear arches, a more ergonomic interior with a revised dashboard, electronically adjustable dampers, four-piston brake calipers, power steering, and minor engine refinements.
Exact numbers of these cars is a hotly disputed area, however it would be reasonable to assume around 400 Lamborghini Diablo 5.7L VT models were made between 1993 -1998, where approximately 10% were Right Hand Drive cars. Over the years these numbers have dwindled and it is now estimated that around 24 are left.
Therefore, we are very excited to offer for sale this 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT 5.7 V12 Coupe. It is finished in Verde Diablo which is perfectly complemented by the beautiful silver wheels with the “raging bull” symbol at their centres and the light brown leather interior.
This special car was one of the last of the Lamborghinis to be built before Audi took over the company. It has original mileage of 10,000 miles only (16,000km), making this car quite unique. And as the winner of the 2017 Salon Privé Concours d’Elegance show where it was voted the best in its class, it is considered a cut above the rest.
This incredible Diablo VT speaks for itself. In stunning condition, exciting to drive and sure to increase in value, it is worthy of any collection or Lamborghini aficionado.
