Description of the car:
Presenting Chassis Number XLA12251, a distinctive Giallo (Yellow) Diablo adorned with Nero interior, originally positioned in Chicago, USA, catering to the American market. This Diablo, sporting aftermarket stereo and exhaust modifications, boasts its rarity as 1 of 37 in the vibrant Fly Yellow color from 1999. With only 4,632 miles on the odometer, this 2-owner car comes with its owner's manual and tools, albeit missing the warranty book, and underwent some paintwork.
Diverging from the Diablo VT, the second generation Diablo VT Roadster emerged from 1999 to 2000, showcasing updated features such as a refreshed interior, larger brakes, and fixed headlamp units. Lamborghini's 5.7-liter V12 engine received a power boost to 529BHP, contributing to enhanced performance.
Production of the standard second-generation VT Roadster concluded in 1999, but a special run of 30 Millennium Edition Roadsters surfaced in 2000. These Millennium Editions closely resembled the VT Roadster mechanically but introduced a distinct differential and exclusive cosmetic modifications.
The Lamborghini Diablo Roadster prototype, unveiled at the 1992 Geneva Motor Show, revolutionized the perception of open-top Supercars. Characterized by scissor doors and a reinforced chassis to compensate for the absence of a permanent roof, it garnered overwhelming positive responses, leading to the production of the Diablo Roadster VT in 1995.
Over the subsequent five years, Lamborghini produced 200 VT Roadster versions, featuring a removable carbon fiber targa top stored above the engine bonnet when not in use. Debuting at the Bologna Auto Show in December 1995, the Roadster showcased minor cosmetic changes, including a revised front bumper and headlamp arrangement.
Significant design modifications encompassed a slightly lower windscreen, larger air intakes, new O.Z Racing wheels, and an innovative engine bonnet treatment. The Diablo Roadster's engine enhancements included the addition of a variable valve timing system, propelling the 492BHP, 6-liter, DOHC V-12 engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission, achieving a top speed of 208MPH and accelerating from 0 to 60MPH in four seconds. This model remains among the fastest open-top cars, standing the test of time against modern Supercars.
The Diablo Roadster initiated Lamborghini's tradition of producing open-top versions for their flagship V12 models, continuing through later models like Murciélago, Aventador, and Reventon. This tradition, combining rarity, aesthetic design, and high performance, holds a significant place in Lamborghini's storied legacy.
