Seller's Introduction

This car was originally a US model and was imported to Canada in March 2022. Should the buyer reside in the US, the selling dealer will handle the vehicle's import back to the US, a process with which the selling dealer has extensive experience. 


In the automotive landscape of the early 1990s, the Lamborghini Diablo emerged as a successor to the iconic Countach, carrying the weight of high expectations. Designed by Marcello Gandini, the creative mind behind the Countach, the Diablo boasted a sleek and aggressive design, complete with pop-up headlights and aerodynamic features that defined its aesthetic appeal. Building on the legacy of its predecessors, the Diablo SV combined raw power with refined aerodynamics and aggressive styling. Underneath its sleek exterior lay a monstrous 5.7-liter V12 engine, capable of producing a jaw-dropping 530 horsepower. This immense power was channeled to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission, providing drivers with an exhilarating and engaging driving experience. The SV, short for Super Veloce, boasted enhancements over the standard Diablo, including a stiffer suspension setup and weight-saving measures that further improved its performance on both road and track.


Visually, the 1998 Diablo SV was unmistakably Lamborghini, with its low-slung profile, sharp angles, and iconic scissor doors. The SV variant featured a revised front fascia with larger air intakes for improved cooling, while the rear end sported a prominent spoiler to enhance aerodynamic stability at high speeds. Inside the cabin, drivers were treated to a luxurious yet driver-focused environment, with premium materials and ergonomic controls ensuring comfort and control. With its blend of aggressive styling, blistering performance, and Italian flair, the 1998 Lamborghini Diablo SV remains a timeless icon of automotive engineering and a dream machine for enthusiasts around the world.


This Lamborghini Diablo SV of 1998 stands as an enduring icon in the realm of supercars, blending cutting-edge design with formidable performance. Now offered in Canada, this particular example is finished in striking yellow over a black leather interior. Rolling on distinctive two-tone wheels, this Diablo showcases matching yellow-painted Brembo brake calipers. With a clean Carfax report and British Columbia registration, coupled with a mere 49,600 kilometers (~30,800 miles) on the odometer, this Diablo SV embodies the exclusivity of limited production and serves as a testament to Lamborghini's ongoing legacy of automotive excellence. It is now offered with a clean Carfax report, a Seller's Disclosure Report, and a British Columbia, Canada registration document.
