Ex-Donald Trump Lambo Diablo Roadster Will Make You Love Bad Hair Days

If Donald J Trump were a car, he would be a Humvee with a 0.50 caliber machine gun and a grenade launcher for good measure.

Nope, scratch that; a. the Governator, aka Arnold Schwarzenegger, was there first(he’s moved on since), and second, the Republican Party president elect is too suave for that.

A pre-Audi-era Lamborghini would fit the bill just fine. Sure, it’s not American, but it’s the epitome of OTT and doesn’t care for niceties much. In fact, it has “in your face” written all over it – with pink neon lights. Then the Germans came and brought some reliability with them, but that’s another story.

Well, Trump is not a car, but he did own a Lambo: a Diablo VT Roadster. It’s the only Le Mans Blue example manufactured in 1997 specifically for The Donald, says the ad, it’s got 23,586 km (15,277 miles) showing on its odo and an interesting license plate…

The ex-Trump Diablo comes with 18- instead of 17-inch rims, factory-fitter carbon fiber trim, the (extremely useful) front lift system and 3M protection on its bumpers, hood and mirrors to protect the paint from stone chips. As for the rest, it’s all standard issue Diablo VT Roadster, which means a 5.7-liter V12 with 492 HP channeled to all four wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox and, of course, a removable carbon fiber top.

The car is currently for sale on eBay and comes with all original keys, books and tool bags plus an AutoCheck certificate (listing a minor accident) and some Trump 2016 campaign stickers. The starting bid is $460,000 and the Lambo will be available until Sunday, 10:46 PM, so there’s plenty of time to think about it, especially as, at the time of writing, there were no offers whatsoever. We believe this has something to do with the price tag, but we’ve been wrong before.

    I dislike Trump so much, but damned if he doesn’t have taste! In cars.

    Funny, his personal spending was overseen by the banks during that year (he was held to limits in the early 90’s as well) due to repeated bankruptcies. So, yeah, it’s historic alright…
