Diablo SV – Série 1
1995 / 1998
Sometimes referred to as the SV – Series 1, for many fans the SV represents the ultimate Diablo, although at the time it was the new ‘entry-level’ model, costing less than the standard 2WD Diablo and the VT. Built on the same base, the SV was first noticed for the huge stickers on its sides, which customers could have removed free of charge when ordering. Even without this decoration, it was impossible to miss the adjustable spoiler of the Diablo SE30, painted in black or body colour (optional). Also in black are the rear light surrounds and the large grille with the red Diablo and SV logos. The fog and reversing lights are offset in the bumper, as on the Diablo SE30, while the four tailpipes are oval, as on the Diablo VT Roadster. The bonnet features the huge air intakes of the Diablo SE30 Jota. The first Diablo SVs are fitted with 17″ wheels painted black with polished rims, housing larger brakes. Inside, there were few changes other than the fitting of the Diablo VT dashboard, which had no airbag until 1998. The leather upholstery, standard on other models, is replaced here by Alcantara on the seats and door panels, with an embroidered ‘SV’ logo on the headrests.
