1997 1/2 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster finished in stunning Metallic Blue Chiaro over Snowcorn Leather interior with blue piping.

Coming to us with just 18,973 miles (30,603 kms) showing on the odometer.

Powered by Lamborghini's iconic 5.7 Liter V-12 engine and backed by their all-wheel-drive system with 5-speed manual transmission.

Believed to be one of just 132 Diablo Roadsters produced for the USA market between 1997 and 1999.

in 1997 the factory redesigned the front bumper to replace the traditional quad rectangular driving lights with two round and two rectangular driving lights. The front brake cooling ducts were moved inboard of the driving lights while the rear brake ducts featured vertical ducts featured on the SE30.

The engine lid was changed to house the carbon fiber roof when not in use and to allow the cover to vent properly when the roof was stored. Optional larger 18" 3 piece wheels became available in 1997.5, which this car has. The air intakes on the top and sides were increased in size and the engine power was increased to 530 hp with the addition of the variable valve timing. Top speed was also increased to 208 mph as a result of these changes. Lastly, in 1997.5 a passenger-side airbag was added as standard equipment.

  • OEM 18" 3 piece OZ Racing wheels
  • OEM Rear wing
  • OEM Blue Piping in the interior
