    Thanks to David, i learned something more about the difference between Diablo SV bumpers.
    MY99 Diablo SV and MY97 Diablo SV (arab spec) have the same part number 009463014.
    These bumpers have more strengthening at the top. (photos attached)
    Also 009463014 is around £1000 more expensive than MY98 bumpers!

    Beautiful grey MY99 Diablo SV from France. This was a part of a big sports car collection.
    You can clearly notice it is a late MY99, different rear badges, different fan grills (same like VT).

    I just found some current spotting photos from this particular car, with big SV stickers in Italy.
    I would like to know the VIN. The location looks like Lago di Garda. I need to add this car still wears the original license plates.

    Good old 90s in Sant´Agata.
    The purple car looks like a SV test mule based on a SE30.

    Andrei, can you explain why your car as a "EU-ROW" front bumper but a "US" rear bumper? Just curious, it´s very uncommon. Maybe it´s part of the "AUS" spec?

    ADR (Australian Design Rules) regulations made all kind of weird things turn up in the country. Most of the time, there was no rhyme or reason.

    Here's an old photo from when the car was new in the dealership:

    I was right, it's XLA12099, not XLA12129 at the Gosford Museum :

    Yes, there are 3 yellow SV MY99 identified in Australia :

    - XLA12099 : Giallo Orion with blue alcantara

    This car was imported from UK (sold by DK Engineering) and actually available for sale at the Gosford Museum.

    - XLA12129 : yellow with black alcantara

    Previously available at Dutton Garage, now sold

    - XLA12421 : yellow (wingless) with black leather

    Peviously available at Dutton Garage, now sold

    I've found a unidentified car (yellow with black leather) at the National Motor Museum in Birdwood (pictures bellow). Anyone know the VIN ? It could be XLA12421 modified with wing and decals or another one ?

    thanks Revio,

    that last car is definitely beyond XLA12300, as it has the badge on the grill , and not indented into the rear deck

    It´s probably XLA12421. Please note the badges in the rear grill (indicates a late car).
    Also the small round front side turn lights have no chrome ring around which is not that often.

    Also i have one photo of XLA12421 with wing, but not the black or carbonfiber rear wing flap.

    So I was invited again to drive along Andrei and his friend in the Diablo SV as he took the Diablo Roadster and the friend took the 91 Diablo :D

    Oh man, he was crazy to hand me the keys and say "follow me"

    I can say I am IN LOVE with the way the SV drives and sounds. The early Diablo is TOO crude for me, which is sad as the Countach (dream car) could not be any better.

    Much love <3

    VIN is ZA9DE22A0VLA12652. '97MY but '96 build as it has the compliance plate of entry into Australia dated 1996. It has the low wing and the staggered wheels (17" front, 18" rear).

    That's a standard Diablo kit, not SV, correct? The SV supplementary manual is missing and the SV key remote is different.

    This is a MY99 Diablo Kit, there is no difference between 4WD, SV or Roadster.
    The key remote is correct from MY98, it´s a remote from the brand "med".

    Which SV supplementary do you mean? Please share a photo if you can, just curious what you mean!

    Leo

    I got confused with the supplementary booklet for the Roadster.

    This is the remote that came with my SV. The pin info, booklet, etc, is all in Italian.

    As that one in the picture was the last one that broke, I had to get new ones from Cobra. They had to source them from Europe as supposedly it was an Italy only system.

    Not really, I've seen it on my mom's year 2000 made/bought Renault... if I'm correct...
    That's quite surprising, I didn't know it could have been Cobra alarm remote.

    I´m not a fan of post production modifications. It´s more than common and a part of Lamborghini history in Japan. Hopefully one day the cars will be restored to original specification. This is what they deserve IMO.
