Stunning 1991 Lamborghini Diablo Coupe. Finished in a Diablo Orange Exterior and Grey Full Alcantara Interior, this Lamborghini is truly gorgeous. As the world's fastest production car of the early 1990's and one of the most visually stunning supercars ever made, this Lamborghini Diablo is truly a legend. The successor to the 200 MPH Countach of the 1980's, the redesigned Diablo evolved in almost every way and set a new standard for super sports cars. Mated to a close ratio five speed manual transmission, the Diablo's V12 produces nearly 500 Horsepower and can propel the car to 100 MPH in just 10 seconds!! This pristine Diablo Coupe, VIN #LA12365, was preserved at the Petersen Automobile Museum in Los Angeles, until being purchased by its most recent owner in the year 2000. Since then, this Lamborghini was completely refurbished to improve even on its factory standards. LA12365 was properly repainted in its original Diablo Orange color, by being stripped to the metal and straightening the waviness that is known to occur on the early generation models. Over $50,000 worth of paint and body work was entirely performed by hand. In addition, all interior upholstery was re-done in a custom dyed Alcantara material imported from Japan. A complete clutch kit as well as water pump, full tensioner update, factory head gaskets, spark plugs, wires and distributer, and complete replacement of all drivetrain seals, hoses, lines, and linkages were replaced about 5,000 miles ago. Also performed was a valve adjustment and valve heads polish by hand. In July of 2010, the car received an engine oil change, transmission oil change, new oil filters, belts, alternator, various sensors and more, with the service totaling over $4,000 in parts alone. Other features include painted 18 Inch Superveloce Wheels, custom Brembo Brake Kit totaling over $15,000 in parts, a complete stainless steel exhaust system, Hella Headlamps, SVR side valances, center panel diffuser, and custom hand fabricated adjustable rear wing, Sparco Steering Wheel, carbon fiber shift-knob and more. Included with the car is an assortment of spare parts including a front spoiler lip, its factory Alpine Stereo System that has never been used, and a long list of service records. Absolutely no expense was spared in the re-finishing of this pristine Lamborghini; one will quickly notice the care and time invested into this tastefully set up car.
This immaculate Diablo is truly one of the finest examples of the legendary supercar in existence today!
