Auction Block: 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GT

Apr 9, 2018

The Lamborghini is a well-respected marque, though it comes with a lot of baggage. People have an expectation that their cars will be intimidatingly fast, aggressive in their styling, and have that ill-defined “wow” factor people are so fond of. But they may have outdone themselves with this particular car, a 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GT headed to RM Sotheby’s auction block.

Loaded with a monstrous V12 6.0-liter engine beneath its bonnet, rear-wheel drive, and a five-speed manual gearbox, this raging bull originally had a horsepower rating of 575. It also featured a primarily carbon fiber body (with only the steel roof and aluminum doors being the exception) – making it the absolute nuttiest Diablo produced. That pedigree, however, also came with a bit of a downside: only 80 of these cars were ever produced, this one being the 12th. And with a gorgeous interior and only 171 miles on the odometer, there’s a pretty good chance that this is the most immaculate one in existence. And it could be yours, if you bid on it at RM Sotheby’s 2018 Monaco auction.
