Lamborghini has truly gone on an extraordinary journey over the past 60 years. From building tractors to writing many success stories on and off the track. It is now possible to celebrate its 6-decade milestone by acquiring an extraordinary 1997 Diablo GT2. This iconic car says a lot about its revered history!
The revolution of the Lamborghini Diablo
The Diablo GT2 was a revolutionary car, showing Lamborghini’s penchant for innovation. The origin of this model lies in Lamborghini’s quest to create an elite racing car, and it was designed to be the brand’s ultimate sports car.
Built with lightweight carbon fibre on an extra-robust chassis and powered by a modified 6.0-litre V12 engine with over 640 hp, it was the perfect testing platform to push the boundaries of aerodynamics and technology, both on the track and in the laboratory.
Did you know that only 30 units of the Diablo GT2 were produced? This made it a very rare and coveted car among collectors and racing enthusiasts. Its distinctive design and impressive performance made it a true icon of the Lamborghini brand.
The debut of the Lamborghini Diablo
The 1998 Bologna Motor Show marked the debut of Lamborghini’s long-awaited Diablo GT2, which only a few months later was replaced by an even more powerful and extreme version: the Diablo GT1 (in Geneva in 1999).
The two 1998 GT2 prototypes were extensively modified to lay the foundations for the future Diablo GT and G1. These cars marked the history of motorsport by achieving victory in two famous championship races of the French Automobile Federation, as well as triumphing at other circuits such as Nogaro and Spa-Francorchamps.
This legendary 1997 Diablo GT2 distinguished itself in its brief racing career and eventually went on to a well-deserved retirement at the Lamborghini Museum. In 2015 he was released to travel abroad and is now in a private collection in Japan as an icon of style and speed.
