1998 Lamborghini Diablo SV failed to sell for $435,000

While Lamborghini isn’t as cocky as some of the other exotic brands, just getting some money isn’t enough to get one. First, if you want a brand new one, there is a one-year waiting list. Secondly, if you want a classic or semi-classic Lamborghini, you don’t need “some” money – you need a lot of money. And this applies not only to the OG Countach. It also applies to the recently-unsold 1998 Lamborghini Diablo SV on Cars & Bids.

The Lamborghini Diablo SV is the super-fast (literally) rear-wheel drive version of the last pre-VW Raging Bull

Since 1998, Lamborghini has been under the watchful eye of Audi, which is why the Urus has so much of the DNA of the Volkswagen Group. But shortly before Audi stepped in, Chrysler briefly held the reins of Lamborghini as the Italian brand worked to replace the iconic Countach. That successor arrived in 1995: the Lamborghini Diablo.
