The Lamborghini Diablo SV was introduced in 1995 at the Geneva Auto Show, reviving the SV title first used on the Miura SV. The SV was based on the standard Diablo and thus lacked the four-wheel drive of the VT. A notable feature of the SV was an increase in horsepower to 510hp, which, paired with the two-wheel drive layout, proved to be a test of drivers ability and bravery. An adjustable rear spoiler was installed as standard equipment and could be color-matched to the car body or formed from carbon fiber.
The cars 5.7-liter V12 was brutal. It’s 510hp would catapult the car to 100km/h from stationary in 3.9 seconds, a spectacular time considering it was built in 1995. The top speed was 328km/h but chances are the driver’s courage would have run out before reaching this speed!
This beautiful ‘Giallo’ yellow SV was recently spotted in Alderly Edge, Cheshire, England, a quite town and an unassuming place to find such a stunning car!
