One of an estimated 330 Diablo Roadsters built, this car was delivered to its first owner in the Bergamo province of Northern Italy on 16th July 1997 via the then Lamborghini main dealer, Touring Auto of Padova. The first owner kept the Lamborghini until 2000, when it was purchased by its second owner, a resident of the principality of Monaco, with 12,000 kilometres showing on the odometer. The car remained with the second owner until 2007, by which time it had recorded some 29,750 kilometres and had always been serviced either by the Lamborghini factory or Touring Auto.
In 2007, the Diablo returned to Italy and was purchased by a specialist supercar dealership near Verona, who used it infrequently and carried out the required minor servicing themselves. In 2014, the car was sold to the current owner, who has used it only sparingly and had it maintained at Paolo Centazzo's specialist workshop in Rome. Expertly cared for, this very rare open supercar is described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition. With its elegant colour combination of Argento Metalizzato (silver metallic) with black interior, this car is a welcome change from the loud colours the Diablo is often associated with. Importantly, it ticks all the boxes as a collector's car, being from a limited series and one of the last Lamborghinis produced prior to the Audi take-over. The fact that it is also one of the last supercars to have a conventional manual gearbox only makes it even more desirable. Accompanying documentation consists of the original service booklet, various invoices, copies of the old Monaco registration documents, and Italian registration papers. .
