It looks so divine in colour white and it doesn’t mind hitting the tracks even if it gets dirty. Okay, so all Lamborghinis are hot but this one’s hotter than anything you’ve likely ever seen. The one-off Lamborghini Diablo GTR #022 also happens to be among company's SuperTrophy Series. SuperTrophy is much like today’s Super Trofeo range which is basically the lighter version of the ultra-cool road going supercars by Lamborghini. The rest of the features have been specified for racing; that’s why this Diablo GTR came with a race-bred V12 engine and is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission from the very beginning.
Surprisingly, the seller posted the vehicle at the Formula Automobile website without naming the price. As a brand new Diablo GTR would cost around $310,000, this used one still won’t come cheap.
For sale is the beast at number 22, which packs an incredibly powerful 590hp (440kW) with a torque of 472lb-ft (640Nm). With only thirty examples, it isn't anymore surprising why this Lamborghini counts as among the rarest breed of bulls from Sant'Agata.
The Lamborghini Diablo GTR dons the same immaculate white exterior with carbon fiber accents and blacked out wheels. Since it was bought for the first time, the 6.0-liter V12 engine has put in a total of 6,213 (10,000km) amount of mileage. This engine should be capable of accelerating from 0- 60mph (96km/h) in as short as 3.5 seconds before hitting a 211mph (339km/h) top speed.
With an already striking built as with all Lamborghini Diablo GTs, the Diablo GTR has been made even lighter by stripping out a sizeable portion of the interior. At only 3,076 lbs (1,395 kg), the built-in soundproofing, stereo system and air conditioning unit have been replaced with a roll cage, racing seats and a six-point harness. Instead of just using aluminum alloy for its entire body, the GTR has employed a mix of reinforced plastic and carbon fiber most especially for the side skirts and front splitter.
This white Diablo GTR’s suspension on the other hand has been lowered and stiffened and comes equipped with Brembo brake calipers specifically designed for racing. That said, the Lambo up on sale is a track ready version of the road-going GT and is therefore not suitable for road use.
The Lamborghini Diablo GTR may have gone a long way since it first debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 1999. After eighteen long years, it seems there is no stopping this supercar from evolving under the care of its new owner. Who do you think it could be?
