Features

1996 Lamborghini Diablo SV-R s/n 12569, one of only thirty-two lightweight Diablo SV based race cars built for the 1996-97-98 Lamborghini Supercar series. All SV-Rs were delivered by the factory in Yellow, and each driver or team then decaled or painted them as they wished. During 1996-97, Diablo SV-R s/n 12569 was driven by Rob Peacock and George Von Opel in 1996, and was then one of several SV-Rs used by Fabio Santaniello to win the 1997 Supercar series. Diablo SV-R s/n 12569 was imported to the US in 2002 and driven by the current owner, a former IMSA GT and GTP pilot, at Le Belle Macchine twice. Diablo SV-R s/n 12569 is ready to go and was serviced in September of last year with a compression check, a new battery, a full fluid service and an ignition timing. S/n 12569 was again inspected and serviced in November of last year, including a rebuilt alternator, a coolant flush, a new fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel hoses. All invoices on file.

Comes with a spare set of 8.5 x 17 inch front and 13 x 18 inch one-piece Speedline wheels and race tires, the air jack, air wrench and lines, a spare rear spoiler, four suspension uprights, four spare rear axles, a spare steering rack, both lightweight Sparco racing seats, a set of spare suspension “A” arms and four spare racing shocks with springs.

SV-R s/n 12569 is a race car, has no title and is sold on a bill of sale. While several SV-Rs have been made street legal, SV-R s/n 112569 is not currently street legal. Thanks to its spacious cockpit and the ability to fit two seats, s/n 12569 is the ideal track day car, very fast, stable and the 5.7 V-12 sounds incredible. As one of only a few Lamborghini Super trophy Diablo SV-Rs in the country, s/n 12569 offers staggering performance, great looks and would make an excellent addition to any Supercar collection.
