THE LAMBORGHINI DIABLO

After 17 years in production, the legendary Countach was replaced by the Diablo, which on its arrival was the fastest, most advanced and most expensive Lamborghini ever built. First exhibited publicly at Monaco in January 1990, the Diablo improved on its illustrious predecessor in every way, setting a new benchmark in supercar design. Nobody can be surprised to learn that it had been styled by Marcello Gandini, the man responsible for the Lamborghini Miura and Countach, for the family resemblance was obvious.

Beneath the skin there was a steel spaceframe chassis, developed from the Countach's, but constructed of square-section rather than round tubing and incorporating 'crumple zones' at front and rear. The use of carbon-fiber composite panels, first seen in the Countach Evoluzione model, was extended in the Diablo, which also featured revised suspension capable of accommodating the envisaged future developments of four-wheel drive and active suspension. Stretched to 5.7 liters for the Diablo, Lamborghini's 48-valve V12 engine gained fuel injection for the first time and producing a maximum of 492bhp. Of equal, if not greater significance, maximum torque went up to 428lb/ft, an improvement of 55% over the Countach. Catalytic converters were standard, enabling the reworked V12 to meet emissions requirements worldwide.

With more power and a lower drag coefficient than the Countach, the Lamborghini Diablo easily eclipsed its forebear, exceeding 200mph (322km/h) on test. More importantly, its acceleration and top speed figures were marginally better than those of the Ferrari F40. The Diablo though, was not a limited-edition model like the latter, but a series production car with a luxuriously appointed interior reflecting its designers' intention to produce a civilized Gran Turismo as suited to city streets and motorways as the racetrack. Its UK launch price was pitched at just under £153,000, making the Diablo one the world's most expensive cars. Four-wheel drive Diablo VT and Targa-style open roadster versions soon followed and then came the Diablo SE (Special Edition) only 150 examples of which were built to celebrate Lamborghini's 30 years as a car manufacturer.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

With the SE30, Lamborghini created a true driver's car from the Diablo platform. The motor breathed easier through both magnesium intake manifolds and a free flowing exhaust while a revised fuel system fed all twelve cylinders increasing the power output to 525hp. In addition, the vehicle lacked the all wheel drive set-up which had recently been added to the range so 300lbs were removed from the curb weight. The SE30 offered here is number 77 of only 150 produced. The supercar was originally ordered by Bruce M. Male and left the factory in December of 1994. As part of the weight savings regimen, SE30s came with crank windows, however when ordering the car Mr. Male chose to have power windows equipped, a very rare and nice to have option!

Having covered fewer than 33,000 kilometers (roughly 20,000 miles) the car is in great shape. The interior is made up of mostly carbon fiber with the carbon buckets being covered in black leather with white piping. With only 150 units ever built, the Diablo SE30 is one of the rarest and sought after variants of the famed Diablo. Unlike many special editions, the SE30 is the real deal with a significant power upgrade, trick race-spec parts and substantial weight savings resulting in a thrilling experience. This example, with its low mileage and rare options make it a great opportunity to acquire one of the 90s rarest and most desirable collectables.
