One of the 40 specimens manufactured by Lamborghini.

The copy of the images is one of only 40 Diablo GT made by Lamborghini at the end of the decade of the nineties. This appeared only two years of the arrival of the more modern Murcielago and supposed to be the summum prestacional of the Devil, released ten years before.

version GTR was a alternative track-only designed for those customers of the brand who wanted a weapon hugely effective for days track-day, for it was gutted the latest evolution of the model, the Diablo GT, and equipped with a mechanically more powerful, light in weight and conveniently lightweight.

Presented at the Bologna motor show of 1999, the Diablo GTR, it had the version of 6.0-liter V12 is present in the Diablo GT, but with an output of 598 HP (590 hp). The previous Diablo SE30 Jota was more potent (603 HP and 639 Nm), but the Diablo GTR was quite lighter and was specially tuned for circuit. The frame received a new scheme for the suspensions and brakes, and an aero kit complete, that sought to massively increase the downforce.

Designed only for the circuit.

Although here not just the evolution, since the inside was totally gutted, showing a cockpit more reminiscent of a racing car, lined in Alcantara, and with new commands, the righteous and necessary to be able to squeeze all the power of the Diablo GTR. Even the bodywork is new, though they appear to be the panels present in the GT version, the Diablo GTR had new body panels made of carbon fiber, to further reduce the weight.

The result is a beast of close to 600 HP rear-wheel drive with a frame whose initial design dates back to the decade of the eighties. I was able to reach 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds from zero and its maximum speed was of 339.5 km/h.

Initially thought to produce only 30 copies, but shortly after they decided to assemble at 10 units, although interestingly did not affect the plaque that identifies it as a limited series, which still reflected the original amount. The unit of the images is the number 22 of the 30 initial and is for sale in a dealer specialized in Denmark, Formula Automobile. does Your price?, only available upon prior consultation.
