One of 30 ever made.
The Lamborghini Diablo GTR was colossus when it was showcased for the first time at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show. Back then, Lamborghini was looking for something even more powerful and more extreme than the outgoing Diablo SV-R for the Lamborghini Supertrofeo 2000 season. The Lamborghini Diablo GT was a properly race-prepped version of the already bonkers (and limited to 80 examples) Diablo GT.
The Lamborghini GTR then, was an even more exclusive track machine that was limited to just 30 examples, off which, this particular one in White is number. 22 of 30. These 30 copies were only given to selected customers who were allowed to take the mad 6.0-litre V12 Lamborghini racing at the Super Trophy Cup.
The Lamborghini Diablo GTR received some serious updates though. Apart from the radically styled body, it now had a massive rear wing that was not permanently attached to the chassis. The entire car was stripped down from the inside to make it as light as possible, that meant the the air conditioning, sound deadening, stereo, heat proofing, were no all removed.
While the Lamborghini GTR used the same 6.0-litre V12 from the GT, the fuelling and ignition systems were revised along with a lighter crankcase and connecting rods. As a result, the GTR produced 590hp on a car that weight considerably lighter than its predecessor. As a result, the GTR could achieve a top speed of 348kmph (216mph).
This particular Lamborghini Diablo GTR here in the photos is currently on sale at Formula Automobile with 10,000km on the odo. While there is no pricing mentioned for the Italian racing car in white, rest assured, we promise you, it’s not going to be cheap.
