1999 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster VT Replica
For sale is my meticulously crafted 1999 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster VT replica. It is a 100% complete turn-key with its clear title in hand, recently inspected, and ready for an Italian sports car enthusiast. Construction began in 2003 by Rick from D&R Replicars out of Allentown, Pa before they went out of business. The engine, drive train, suspension wiring, interior, and the finishing touches were performed by Demetrios from Exotic Illusions, out of Archbald, Pa and was completed in 2011. The D&R Replicars company was known throughout the kit car community as being the best in there business for their quality fiberglass replica body kits and Exotic Illusions has a great reputation as one of the best replica builders around.
This car is garage kept, has never seen rain, and babied since I brought it home last year. Iíve always run 93 octane pump gas and the engine and clutch are still slowly being broken in. This car only has 585 virgin miles on a naturally aspirated 400+hp engine and no expense was spared with total investment exceeding $93K! Everything works perfectly, nothing broken, missing, or any leaks of any kind. This car must be seen in person to appreciate! It turns more heads and gets more attention than any vehicle Iíve ever owned. Would be the perfect toy for someone looking to roll into any Naerc car show in style and possibly walk away with a few trophies.
