1998 Lamborghini Diablo GT2

The Diablo GT2 was actually on display at the Auto Show in Copenhagen in 1998, and it looked like Automobili Lamborghini SpA was trying to sell this redesigned Diablo. They even had a price for this special, $350,000; however, during the 1999 Geneva Auto Show, they showed the awesome Diablo GT, which was going to be the production unit. The Lamborghini Diablo GT went on sale starting in September of 1999, but only a limited production of 80 cars would be made.

Another rumor stated the new L147 engine would be used in this GT2 car to compete during the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1999, but that was just a rumor, and there wasn’t a Lamborghini entry in Le Mans for the notorious 24h race in 1999.
