For fans of supercars and Lamborghini, the Diablo model is the "end of the world". The Diablo is a legend from the nineties of the last century, and a copy that was owned by former Formula 1 world champion Mario Andretti is offered for sale.
Andretti bought his Diablo in 1991 in Rosso red, and in the following years the car changed hands several times. It is currently in Florida and is still in fantastic condition. Despite its advanced age, the Diablo still looks great.
Over the years, it has been repainted to maintain its fresh appearance. It's not perfect, though. You will notice imperfections in the weatherstripping if you look closely. There is also a slight alignment issue with the windshield trim, but it is a minor issue that can be resolved with minimal effort.
However, the car is completely original, it has been regularly maintained, and in 2020 an expensive engine service was performed, the pipes were replaced, the cooling system was serviced, the cylinders were machined, and a year later the clutch cylinders were replaced.
5.7-liter V12 engine
The Diablo is powered by a 5.7-liter V12 engine that, when new, developed 549 hp and 620 Nm of torque. It took 3.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h, while the maximum speed was 335 km/h. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox, and the car has no power steering, ABS brakes or traction control.
What keeps the driver "glued" to the road are the Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires and his skill. ATE disc brakes take care of stopping, and the brake calipers were repaired in 2020. The storied career of Mario Andretti is reminiscent of a movie: he is the “only driver to win the Indianpolis 500, Daytona 500 and the Formula 1 World Championship,” as well as the “last American driver to win a Formula 1 race” and a “four-time national champion” in the Indy Car industry.
Additionally, Andretii holds the distinction of being named as “Driver of the Year” in three separate decades – 1967, 1978, and 1984 – in three separate decades. The interior is covered in leather, and the car has traveled 37,535 kilometers. The current highest bid is $140,000, but is expected to rise. Recently, a Diablo was sold for $399,226.
