If you’ve ever gone down the rabbit hole of Lamborghini replicas, you’ve probably realized that most of them don’t look a thing like real ones. This one, however, is an exception: it’s an excellent replica of a Lamborghini Diablo, and it’s currently listed for sale on Autotrader.
The ad description explains this replica, and it quickly becomes clear why it’s such a close match with a real Diablo: because it’s built on a custom tube frame, rather than using an existing car as a base. That’s a more expensive, and better, way to make a replica, since you can line up exact dimensions with the real car.
In fact, this Diablo is surely more usable than the real thing, as its powerplant is a General Motors LS1 V8 — that means reliability and big power without putting up with the issues you’ll undoubtedly get in a Lamborghini. This Diablo replica also touts the correct wheels that a typical Diablo VT Roadster has, along with a surprisingly similar interior.
If you’re interested, this Diablo replica is offered by a private seller in Miami for $98,500. That’s huge money, but used Diablo models are only getting more expensive — and I suspect it won’t be long before they’re well out of reach of just about any reasonable exotic car buyer. When that happens, a replica like this starts to make sense for those who want the Lambo look without the Lambo headaches. Find a Lamborghini Diablo for sale
