This gorgeous 2001 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 finished in rare Giallo Fly Yellow (“Giallo Evros”). Our research indicates that only five Diablo 6.0 VT’s were finished in this brilliant non-metallic color. The interior is splendid in dramatic black leather trim flashed with matching yellow on the seat bolsters and across the dash top, flawless, with its original Alpine head unit and still smells just as it did when they rolled off the assembly line.
The fabulous Diablo was third in line as Lamborghini’s flagship supercar succeeding the hugely popular Countach. With sixteen iterations produced from 1990 to 2001, the Diablo received continual upgrades and performance enhancements throughout the entire eleven year production range under both Chrysler and Audi ownership.
As production of the Diablo series came to an end in 2001, the 6.0 VT stood as the most refined and powerful example produced with the 6.0 liter V12 featuring revised fuel and ignition system, individual throttle bodies, dynamic air intake induction system, variable valve timing, titanium connecting rods and lightweight crankshaft adding up to create a staggering 550BHP at 7,100RPM kicking power out to all four wheels through the Viscous Traction (VT) system.
Aside from engine enhancements, the Diablo 6.0 VT also received overall improvements including carbon fiber body treatment, wider front and rear tracks, improved exhaust system, new 32-bit electronic engine management system, upgraded chassis, completely redesigned interior, new air conditioning system and lightweight magnesium alloy wheels.
This Diablo 6.0 VT (#12773) is a one-owner example originally purchased at Prestige Imports, the official Lamborghini dealer in Miami, Florida. The Diablo comes complete with factory carbon fiber rear wing (a $12,000 option when new), still shod with its original Pirelli P-Zero tires and exhaust.
The car is complete with all books, tools and records as well as business cards from Prestige Imports’ sales representatives. Service records from Evan’s Automotive, one of the premier Lamborghini service facilities in the country, as well as original invoices indicates the level of commitment the owner had to this spectacular, well-documented example.
The car is one of less than 120 Diablo 6.0 VTS produced for the U.S. market and one of less than twenty in this condition and provenance.
“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 cars.”
