1997 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster VT
A Stunning UK Lamborghini Diablo Roadster with only 10,000 miles from new!
One Owner vehicle.
Full Lamborghini service history.
Lamborghini luggage is present.
All original booklets.
Original purchase invoice.
Factory sports exhaust.
Both sets of original keys.
Having been in storage for recent years, the car was recently sent to Lamborghini UK for a full service/re-commission and the invoice is present within the vast history file, for £13,000!!
This vehicle has wanted for nothing and has been truly loved by its only keeper.
Being a UK Roadster, of which only 27 were made, this is a very serious investment opportunity.
Purchased new by Mr Meredith on the 3rd of April 1997, as a luxury Italy holiday vehicle.
All original literature is present, along with the original brochures, original V5, all past MOT’s, Full service history and much more.
All original booklets are presented, and are still within the original Tan leather wallet.
Matching Tan leather luggage is with the vehicle, and was bought as an optional extra as detailed on the original purchase invoice.
Also stated on the original purchase invoice is the addition of a Cat 1 Alarm, Tracker, Optional Sports Exhaust, Road Pack and personalised P** LAM registration.
Full Lamborghini service history is with the vehicle, and to say it is comprehensive would be quite an understatement.
The history file compliments this very low mileage, UK Roadster perfectly, and has recently had a very thorough and very expensive re-commission carried out by Lamborghini UK.
Sadly Mr Meredith passed away in 2013, and subsequently the vehicle had to be registered in Mrs Meredith’s name for means of sorn etc.
All relevant DVLA paperwork is present.
Body & Paintwork
The Titanium Silver paintwork on this vehicle is fantastic, in fact the finish is quite breathtaking, especially for an 90’s Italian supercar.
All body panels are original, and the special order colour sets the car off perfectly, not too “in your face”….
We are led to believe this is the only UK Roadster in this colour combination also.
No repairs have been carried out to the bodywork over the years, all panels have a very nice straight finish to them, and all fitments are correct and even.
All the glass is in perfect condition, with no chips or scratches.
The original badges are all in great order, and all lights are crystal clear, and working perfectly…
The car does look as though it has just rolled off the production line!
Interior & Trim
As you would expect of a car with such little mileage, and that has been looked after in such a way….
The interior is in superb order, with absolutely everything working just as it should do.
Being a 1997 vehicle, it has the front suspension lifting system (raising the front of the car 2″ to clear speed bumps etc) and this is operated a switch on the centre console, this function is working perfectly.
All gauges work as they should do, and the factory fitted Alpine stereo system works perfectly.
Windows drop and raise correctly when the doors are opened and closed, and doors hold up exactly as they should do.
The Oxblood leather hide is all original and in great condition, with no dry or discoloured areas.
Seat bolsters are superb, and original floor mats are still present.
What an engine…..
5.7 litres, V12, with a claimed 492bhp (although slightly more with the factory option sports exhaust).
As soon as you turn the key, you know you are in for a treat, even before the engine fires into life, the noise of the engine turning over lets you know- this is a special car, almost like an old fighter plane turning over…..
Then it starts, and wow!
The noise is absolutely electrifying – the ”old school” Lamborghini noise is matched only by a very few vehicles.
On the road the car drives incredibly well, much better than the earlier Diablo’s, which as we all know are well known for being quite difficult to drive and being quite a dangerous car if provoked.
This car gives great performance, a great driving experience, great noise and of course, it wear a Lamborghini badge, does it get any better?
As with the rest of the car, the running gear is all in great order.
All tyres are recently renewed, as are the brakes.
The wheels are original and in good order, with no damage, the only real point to note is the rear wheels have some lacquer lift on the rims but this is minor and is not noticeable.
With the car having only recently had a £13,000.00 service, you can rest assured all is exactly as it should be.
