Up for auction is the most perfect and stunning example of a 2001 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0
Painted in Verde Ithaca, a highly sought after color in modern Lamborghini's and offered here as the only Diablo 6.0 in the world sporting these liveries.
Originally, this was a pearl yellow car with black interior and yellow piping, after an 8 month restoration costing a small fortune; it is now placed on the open market for sale to make way for something else. When we took delivery of the car, it required a new drive shaft, as well as some TLC. It was at this time we decided the route we took and went all out restoring the car. Every single body panel was removed, all interior replaced or refinished & the entire drive train overhauled. There isn't another Diablo in the world that has had this kind of work performed to this date. You see many Miuras and Countach cars going through this restoration process where specialists remove every single nut and bolt and put the car painstakingly back together, well that's what we did with this model. We even repainted the floor and frame, as well as replating every single nut - bolt screw - washer etc.
List of components replaced:
New clutch flywheel assembly[/q]

Complete stripped down body, all panels removed
- Painted PPG 0077 Verde Ithaca, specific PPG paint, we used the exact same paint that the factory used and the pearl and depth of the paint is incredible.
- You can bend back the mirrors and see the green paint, pull back weather-stripping and see green paint, in other words if we never told you the car was painted this color outside the factory, you nor anyone else would ever know the difference.
- All suspension, including shocks - control arms - mounting brackets etc where all powder coated the exact same color as factory spec.
Engine completed refinished to factory spec
- Transmission refinished to factory spec
- 2WD now, front diff removed, as well as drive axles and prop shaft. By doing this, and installing a lightweight flywheel and exhaust, we reduced the cars weight by 180lbs, this is a noticeable difference and acceleration is amazing to say the least.
- All fasteners and hardware was refinished to factory color and specs.
Black and carbon fibre
On a scale of 10, there is zero doubt this car is a 10. I welcome all inspections and encourage you to do so, whoever inspects the car, am it an official dealer or independent, will without doubt be amazed by the quality and condition of the car.
- Seats are black, with green stitching and green piping; we used the exact color to match the exterior paint.
- Door sills black and green stitching
- E-brake cover, green leather, with black and green stitching
- Dash, black with black stitching.
I've attached as many photos as I can, including before during and after of the restoration.
Reserve is set higher than the majority of most 6.0's, although the odometer reads 45000, this I guess is subject, as the entire drive train looks like 10 miles. Think of this, a Miura SV that has had 50000 miles of use in its life gets a full restoration, then gets sold for 1 million plus, it still has 50000 miles on the odo, but in reality, does it?
