Find of the Day: Lamborghini Diablo GTR


It’s so hard these days to own something truly special. Ferrari’s “musical chairs” approach to car manufacturing is great and all, but if you really want to stand out at the next cars and coffee, you should get this: the Lamborghini Diablo GTR.

Not just any Diablo, the GTR is the racified, fastified, lightified version of Lambo’s ‘90s V12 supercar. Only 30 were ever made and golly goshagoree does this black and white example look cool.

Originally intended to race in Lamborghini’s one-marque racing series Supertrophy (the predecessor to Super Trofeo) the car has been lightened, stiffened, and just plain old made better.

The engine was fitted with a better exhaust system and the engine management system got a special tune good for 590 hp out of the 6-liter 12-cylinder.

A roll cage, spoiler, improved braking system, suspension and more, meanwhile, all make the GTR a track monster. Best of all, though, is the car is fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission.

No price is suggested for the GTR, but since it’s one of thirty and it appears to be in pretty good condition, we wouldn’t recommend lowballing the Danish dealer selling it.
