The Lamborghini Diablo GTR Is The Raging Bull From Hell

For Sale

Track-focused Diablo was the devil in an Iron Man suit.

After debuting the Diablo GT at the Geneva Motor Show in 1999 - a hardcore variant of the V12 Lambo limited to just 80 units introduced at the end of the Diablo’s lifespan - Lamborghini introduced the Diablo GTR later that year in Bologna. An even more track-focused example of the supercar, the GTR was originally limited to just 30 models (40 were eventually built), and chassis # 22 has just popped up for sale in Denmark of all places wearing a seemingly innocent shade of white despite its devilish persona.

The 40 lucky owners of the Diablo GTR were entitled to participate in the Super Trophy Cup, and presumably they all survived. This one certainly did and it looks to be in mint condition. With 590 horsepower on tap from the same 6.0-liter V12 used by the GT (an increase of 25 horsepower over that model but over 100 horses more than the stock 5.7-liter Diablo), power was sent to the rear via a five-speed transmission. It was also lighter thanks to the liberal use of carbon fiber in the construction of the body, and came with a stripped interior, with the air conditioning, stereo, and sound and heat proofing all removed.

Taking the already radical body of the GT and pushing it even further, the GTR came with a huge rear spoiler bolted directly to the chassis, a set of 18-inch hollow magnesium Speedline centerlock wheels, pneumatic air jacks and an emergency fuel shutoff switch on the left front fender. The suspension was also lowered and stiffened, and the brakes were custom-made from Brembo. The Diablo GTR could sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds en route to a top speed of 211 mph, making it faster than the Murcielago that replaced it. Listed for sale with Formula Automobile, the price for this extreme, exquisite Lamborghini Diablo GTR is available upon request.
