Auction Block: 1996 Lamborghini Diablo SE30

When it comes to Lamborghini’s most iconic supercar platforms, it’s difficult to find an older model that retains its impeccably furnished interior, cleanly designed engine, and “like new” mileage. While the search for such a vehicle might seem to be outside the realm of possibility, it’s certainly not impossible — proven tactfully by this immaculate 1996 Lamborghini Diablo SE30.

The SE30 you see here is one of only 150 to ever be produced, inheriting the Diablo’s original 48-valve, dual overhead cam 5.7-liter V-12 engine, and computer-controlled multi-point fuel injection — leaving the original vehicle with an intimidating 485-horsepower and 428 ft-lb of torque. While the SE30 wouldn’t change the formula for Lamborghini’s pronounced engine architecture, it would revise the car’s fuel system, exhaust, and intake manifold to push some additional figures out of the powerplant, garnering upwards of 525 horsepower. A set of driver-adjustable sway bars that could be oriented in either “race-stiff” or “firm” compliment the SE30’s newly adopted rear-wheel-drive, carbon fiber body panels, and race-spec brakes, giving the vehicle a leg up on the company’s previous models. Due to this weight-conscious design principle, the car was able to shed nearly 300 pounds off of the original body, bringing it to a grand total of 3,152 — considerably less than the standard rear-wheel-drive Diablo and all-wheel-drive VT. With only 250 miles on this silver beauty, it’s truly an impeccably kept piece of automotive history, and now, it’s going up for auction via RM Sotheby’s. Be prepared, though — the price tag for a such a lauded vehicle is expected to reach upward of $443,000.

Purchase: $443,000
