In 1995 Lamborghini got back to basics and produced this car, the SV. Appealing to those hardcore enthusiasts who preferred the purebred nature of rear-wheel drive, the SV was a fitting successor to 1971's similarly titled Miura SV. Launched at the Geneva Salon in March 1995, SV's were initially only available as Berlinetta's although a handful of Roadster's were produced briefly in 1998. SV's were more powerful and less luxurious than Lamborghini's original Diablo with a revised 510bhp motor thanks to a new LIE engine management system. Maximum speed rose to 204mph, 0-60 taking just 4.5 seconds. From 1998 onwards The SV's had the 530 BHP engine, and this is thanks to improved Valve Timing Management. At the front, a redesigned spoiler got rectangular driving lights to replace the original two box lenses, the enlarged air intakes getting dressed with matt black accents. The engine air intakes carved out from in front of each rear wheelarch were now bereft of any slats and SE30 Jota-style engine covers were used. A no-cost option concerned the rear wing that normally came finished in carbon black but could be body coloured if so desired. Finally, the tail facia got a black central grille and new carbon finish light surrounds, the fog and reverse lights being re-mounted into the bumper. Instruments received white or colour-coded backs and Lamborghini's upholsterers often embroidered the SV logo into both head restraints. The SV was a big hit, by and large killing off the original two-wheel drive Diablo.
This car, chassis number XLA12099, has had three owners since delivery in 1999 and has covered an indicated 17,000 miles.
