It may not be the most anticipated auction but it is the one that can make your garage big again. As we read on the wonderful internet, Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster of himself Donald J. Trump It goes up for auction soon.
This is not just any Lambo, it is a presidential Lambo, commissioned and customized expressly for the former president of the United States of America. I say it like that because it sounds more grandiose, but what is really special about the car is its condition, its beautiful Blu Le Mans color and of course, its presence on the road. Let’s dig a little deeper into this blue legend.
The Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster
The prototype of the Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1992, but production did not begin until 1995. This convertible model was characterized by magnifying and cutting its aggressive design through the roof. Also evidently because of its exclusivity, being an improved version of the famous Diablo. The unit that is now being auctioned has a special past, since it was custom-ordered by Donald Trump thanks to the special relationship he had with Lamborghini.
Engine and performance
Under the hood, the Diablo VT Roadster houses a 5.7 liter naturally aspirated V12 enginecapable of generating impressive 492 HP and 582 Nm of torque from 5,000 rpm. With a 5-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive, this supercar accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 325 km/h. Viscous Traction technology, from which the acronym VT comes, guaranteed efficient power distribution, providing an incomparable driving experience, especially if you have hair like Trump had in the 90s.
With a height of just 1.11 meters and 17-inch wheels, the Diablo VT Roadster boasts a design compact and aerodynamic. Its characteristic doors that open up and forward add a distinctive touch, allowing a unique look at the luxurious cabin, where the transmission tunnel between the seats stands out.
Obviously we do not forget its doors that open upwards and forwards in a synchronized and perfect movement so that we can appreciate the interior of the Diablo VT.
This particular copy has a unique story, since Donald Trump bought it new and kept it until the summer of 2002, that’s what it’s like to have a lot of money, that you buy things to keep. I do the same but with Star Wars figures. The car was personalized with an exclusive Blu Le Mans color, not officially available in 1997, making it the only Diablo painted in this shade that year.
Furthermore, to make it more Trumpist, the Devil sets up a personalized plate that says “Donald Trump 1997 Diablo” on the door, giving it that presidential touch. Despite its exclusiveness, the odometer reads only 24,834 km, although a “mileage inconsistency” is mentioned according to CarFax. Donald himself has had something happen to him…
