Lamborghini Diablo SV

ALamborghini Diablo as a ‘sensible investment’?

Should an SV be painted a dignified colour and not have 6 ft decals down each side? Some people won’t see the point in a stealth-spec Super Veloce, but this car looks pretty special to us.

Know this about Lamborghinis – they are becoming very collectable. These 90s cars were built in low volumes, are mighty impressive to look at and make an entrance like nothing else. Park one next to a brand new Aventador and it’ll snag just as many glances. No contemporary Ferrari is anything like as outrageous.

These are great cars to drive too. Physical, intimidating and very, very fast. There are no electronic safety nets, just the requirement of a prudent right foot to control those 335-section tyres. Anyone who has heard a Diablo with a Larini exhaust does not forget the experience in a hurry.

Engine: 5,707cc V12
Transmission: 5-speed manual, four-wheel drive
Power (hp): 517hp@7,100rpm
Torque (lb ft): 428@5,900rpm
