Default New owner of a 99 SV :)

Hi guys,

After a year and a half of gathering information, looking at internet ads every day, seeing a few dissapointing cars on sale, becoming a member of the Lamborghini Club of France, meeting with incredibly nice Lambo owners, I've decided to do it !
So I bought a beautiful (of course ) red 99 SV

I don't even have the car yet but I'm so so so so happy, just like a kid when he realizes he will have his dream toy. A dream come true actually.
A few years ago, I would never have believed I would own this car one day and yet it's real

I live in France but the car is in Germany. It has been delivered new at Lamborghini Kremer, for those who know them, and has always been serviced there. It's going there next week in fact.
Car belonged to two collectors and has only 8800 kms on the clock so it's basically NEW ! It's 100% original except for the audio which is very well integrated. I hesitated a long time on wether I should buy this car or a car with more kilometers because I'm not a car collector and I intend to drive it. Not tens of thousands of kilometers each year, but not 500 a year either. But the fact that the car is almost flawless, and that it's the model I wanted, in the colour I wanted, made up my mind.
I don't think there's a nicer SV for sale in Europe at the moment !

Here are some pictures taken by the showroom salesperson :







I should have the car in two weeks. I'm very excited but after one year and a half searching for every info possible on the Diablo, I can wait a few more days

Thanks a lot to all the people who answered my questions here. I will definitely have more questions soon. A special thanks to Jonathan Cats who I was in contact with for his beautiful red 99 SV (see a pattern here ? ). They do live up to their reputation and are very nice to talk with. Too bad import taxes are so high here in Europe.

And a very special thanks to VT5700 who became a friend over time and who helped me a lot in my research.

Beautiful. You picked the right Diablo! Interesting No rear wing?

Make lots of comments, and ask lots of questions, so we can all continue learning

Congraualtions! That is simply breathtakingly beautiful! Lamborghini was sooo far ahead of game back then. The interior is gorgeous, and looks like new!
