1998 Lamborghini Diablo SV
One of a kind performance and beauty!
At about 14000 miles I lost hydraulic fluid from the clutch assembly. It was an easy fix done under warranty.
This is my third and probably last Lamborghini. Previously I have owned a 1987 Countach 4-valve model, and a 1994 Diablo VT.
This car is much quicker than the other two models, but, what really brought the car to life was a birthday present from my wife. Without my knowledge she arranged for my car to have an upgrade. She ditched two of the four cats and eliminated the bathtub sized muffler for what looks to me to be nothing more than pipes with a few S turns. She then had the air filters replaced with custom K+N Airfilters that were made for the twin turbo VTT. I now have a "new lamborghini". The improved throttle response is amazing and the increase in horsepower is awesome. I have not had the car dynoed, but today in normal driving I rarely go over 3K RPM, whereas before I would routinely rev to 4 or 5K.
My car is scary quick. I easily break loose the massive 345s on the rear. I have learned to respect the throttle when accelerating out of turns. On the VT, I never had to fear over punching it. This car I will keep.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
