Pre-Audi Era Lamborghini Diablo RWD Is Your 1990s Dream Car

Despite benefiting from subtle improvements over the years, early examples of Lamborghini’s Diablo, before Audi took over, remain the preferred choice for their pure rear-wheel driving experience.

Delivered brand new on May 28, 1991, at a Monaco dealer, this red Diablo with a Black and Yellow Tan leather interior has five stamps in its original booklet, up to 2003, at which point it had traveled for 31,663 km (19,675 miles). With its odometer currently indicating 46,285 km (28,760 miles), it was recently serviced by the vendor, who bought it last year.

Its bodywork and interior are said to be in “lovely condition”, with some minimal wear to the seats and carpets, while the V12 continues to function properly and to develop 492 HP, propelling the supercar from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in under 4 seconds and up to a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h).

The 1991 Lamborghini Diablo will go under the hammer at SilverstoneAuctions, on May 20, at the Silverstone Circuit, where it’s expected to fetch anywhere between £90,000 and £110,000 ($127,660-156,030).

    Wow, Chrysler’s majic was really good back then (1991-2005). The Italians continue to benefit from chrysler to this day.

      Yep, they had great plans in 1987…

    Some 15 years later FCA’s 6.4 SRT makes very comparable horsepower. I’d like to see a shootout between yesteryear’s supercars and today’s muscle cars.

    Since I was one of the few who HATED the Countach (because it was just such a stylistic mess,) I really loved it when this came out. I still think it looks pretty slick today.
