More details

Chassis number RLA12970, completed on December 3, 1993, was initially delivered to the Italian market. It was billed on February 10, 1994, and famously driven by Michael Schumacher, featuring in Auto Świata and German magazine Auto Bild in 1994. This Lamborghini Diablo VT has had only two owners from new and remains in its original condition.

In 1994, Auto Bild put Formula One driver Michael Schumacher behind the wheel of this Diablo, along with other supercars of the period. This car also featured in a factory press release kit and retains its original Alpine radio. It is one of approximately 400 examples produced, boasting a naturally aspirated V12 engine and the Viscous Traction (VT) four-wheel drive system, known for its impressive usability.

The car has a comprehensive maintenance history. In March 2021, André Nout Classic Car Services performed a major service, including an engine oil and filter change, new spark plugs, a new oil pressure sensor, warm-up regulators, engine cleaning, injection gallery cleaning, and fitting new tires dated 2023. In December 2020, it received new fuel filters, a battery, four new Pirelli P Zero tires, and a replacement fuel pump. Other notable maintenance includes a clutch revision.

Unveiled at the prestigious 1993 Geneva Motor Show, the Lamborghini Diablo VT quickly captivated automotive enthusiasts with its blend of style, performance, and luxury. Named after a legendary fighting bull, the Diablo VT epitomized Lamborghini's relentless pursuit of automotive perfection. By 1995, the model had undergone continuous refinement, including significant improvements like a lighter clutch and redesigned seats for enhanced comfort.

The Diablo VT's revolutionary Viscous Traction (VT) system offered exceptional performance by transferring surplus torque to the front axle when rear-wheel grip was compromised, enhancing stability and control. Its fully independent active suspension and power-assisted rack and pinion steering provided unparalleled handling and responsiveness with multiple suspension settings. Designed by Marcello Gandini, the Diablo VT featured an aerodynamic body with lightweight aluminum alloys and carbon fiber composites. Inside, the cabin offered premium leather upholstery, active climate control, and a premium Alpine stereo system.

Under the hood, the Diablo VT housed a formidable 5.7-liter, 48-valve V-12 engine, delivering 492 horsepower and 428 lb./ft. of torque. It boasted a top speed exceeding 200 mph and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.09 seconds. The Lamborghini Diablo VT remains an icon of automotive engineering excellence, combining unparalleled performance, exquisite craftsmanship, and uncompromising luxury.
