The Diablo GT was the ninth variant of the model from Lamborghini. Introduced in 1998 and based on
previous versions and special versions such as the SE30 and SE30 Jota., Only 80 versions of the GT
were produced mainly for Europe with only four finding their way to the U.S.
Lamborghini produced the Diablo GT to be a track-only car and it was outfitted with many
components not seen on previous road going versions. Exclusive additions to the car included more
sculpted and aggressive bodywork, sparse interior and larger engine.
Bodywork alterations included an all new black carbon front air dam, larger brake ducts
and central vent for the oil cooler. A prominent air extractor was added to the front deck lid and
small corner vents atop the front fenders were changed to NACA style ducts. At the rear, a wider
wing was added to accommodate the wider track. The rear light clusters and bumper were replaced
with a carbon fiber diffuser which is integrated with the center mounted exhaust system and the
fog and reversing lamps.
A new ram air intake was added which protrudes from atop the engine bonnet adding to the car’s
racy looks. Carbon fiber touches were added to the body to take away weight with the only steel
left was the roof while the doors remained in aluminum. O.Z. created special three-piece wheels
completed the exterior package.
The interior features more prominent carbon fiber panels, racing inspired seats with 4- point
harnesses and smaller steering wheel. Optional bits include an Alpine LCD screen for GPS and rear
wing mounted reversing camera. Air conditioning was installed as standard equipment and airbags
were an option.
In the engine department, the basic V12 remained however stroked from 5.7 liters to a new
displacement of 6.0 liters producing 575BHP. In the drivetrain, the transmission was the standard
5-speed used in previous models but buyers could request different gear ratios. The all-wheel
drive system was eliminated to save weight.
“At Curated, we do not acquire cars simply for inventory but rather based on what the car is. We
love interesting provenance, very low production, very low mileage, very special and often weird
