If you’ve ever wanted a Lamborghini Diablo — but you didn’t want to spend over $100,000 for the real thing — here’s your chance to get a Diablo look for a fraction of the price. This car is a Lamborghini Diablo replica — and unlike basically every other Diablo replica, it actually looks a lot like a Diablo. And now it can be yours.
According to the advertisement, this Diablo is a replica “built by professional engineers that worked for Lamborghini.” No VIN is provided, so it’s hard to know how the replica was constructed — most Lamborghini replica models are based on a Pontiac Fiero, but based on the description in the listing, it’s possible this one was made from scratch. That would be consistent with the later description that this Diablo comes with a “smog test exemption,” which is typically only given to kit cars.
The ad also notes this Diablo is built to the “exact specs” of a real one, and that it was made for “advertising projects.” Indeed, there are a few visual ways you can tell it apart from a real Diablo — the wheel gap in back and the wheelbase don’t seem to perfectly align — but it is certainly an excellent copy.
If you’re interested, this Diablo replica is offered in El Dorado Hills, California, for $39,000, which is a fraction of the price of a real one — although, given that this one has a General Motors V6, it’s probably not quite as engaging as a real one, either. Find a Lamborghini Diablo for sale
