2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0

Published By

When it comes to iconic supercars, the devil is always in the details. Such is the case with this 2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0 featuring a breathtaking Monterey Blue finish. 

Sitting in the cockpit of this demon puts you in control of a Lamborghini V12 engine with the confidence of all-wheel-drive. It will require an exorcism to get you out of the driver’s seat. 

Fire it up to hear what a legion sounds like through the pipes of Diablo’s chambers. This is a 6.0L 12-cylinder engine with a quad-cam design. That means it has four camshafts giving it the tone and depth of hell when it roars. 

A five-speed manual transaxle puts you in command of a 550 horsepower V12 while AWD provides zombie clenching grip for launching or cornering. It brings plenty of torque to the table as well with 457 pound-feet available at its peak. 

The legacy and engine alone are enough to draw both driving and Lamborghini enthusiasts to the Diablo. There is also a front-axle lift system on this specific version to prevent you from scraping the front on angled driveways or gateways into the abyss. 

Should you get a little ahead of yourself, which is extremely easy to do when you are behind the wheel of a Diablo, the Brembo brake system will slow your roll. There are cross-drilled rotors and the ventilated system keeps those brakes cool. After all, high speed runs are not uncommon for Lamborghini drivers.

An adjustable rear wing does a lot more than just look good on this Italian sports car. You will also find tasteful blue-weave carbon fiber accents throughout the interior and exterior of this beauty. Speaking of the interior, the cream leather upholstery adds a classy finishing touch.

Perhaps the best part about this 2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0 is that it’s available for sale through an auction at Bring a Trailer. The odometer only shows approximately 19,000 miles with exceptional maintenance and service history. 

Sadly, 2001 marked the end of the line for the legendary Diablo. That does not mean its spirit does not still haunt the streets. Horror stories of heartbreaking defeat span across several continents echoing from those who dared to challenge a Diablo and lived to tell the tales. 

Of course, there is some controversy surrounding what happens to Diablo drivers as they often become consumed by the car itself. Should you encounter a Diablo while driving, it would be wise to not provoke it unless you are sitting in the driver’s seat.
