First campaigned in Europe where it won the Lamborghini Super Sport Trophy championship in 1998 with Fabio Santaniello, then brought to Australia to compete in the 2000, 2001 Australian Nations Cup Championships with driver Paul Stokell and Team Lamborghini Australia. Stokell steered this Diablo SV-R to victory in its debut race in Adelaide, beating Jim Richards in a Porsche GT3. It even managed to set a new lap record despite a 100kg weight ballast. That wasn’t the only highlight for the 2000 season, as it also put in an unforgettable performance in the pouring rain to take the win at Mount Panorama, Bathurst. It won 18 races overall in its two competition years in the Australian Nations Cup and finished as runner-up in the 2001 season.

It is a four-owner car; first was a European owner who used it in the original race series, second was Lamborghini Australia, third was a private collector in QLD and the fourth is the current owner who has owned it since 2016.

Now, the car has been fully restored back to race-ready specification, with current active invitations to the EU/US International GT Legends series which includes the prestigious LeMans Classic event. Alternatively, given its age, it could be converted for (heritage) road use from 2021 onwards after some slight modification. In addition to a $160k restoration by Lamborghini Melbourne that used brand new original parts to bring it back to race-spec, it also comes with a full set of spares including three wheel sets, three sets of tires (2 x racing slicks, 1x wets), brakes, wheel gun, air jacks and radios."
