You are viewing an extremely rare 1994 Lamborghini Diablo VT Twin Turbo currently listed for sale with Motorcar Classics in Long Island. The car is believed to be only 1 of 7 ever made. The Diablo VTTT (the VTTT stood for viscous traction twin turbo) was a limited production (7 made altogether) made by Platinum Motors in California.
These supercars were equipped with twin Garrett T4 turbochargers with custom-built intercoolers, competition valves with race guides, cylinder heads with polished ports, and a reprogrammed electronic fuel injection system. Modifications to the drivetrain included a custom Kevlar twin-plate clutch to cope with the extra torque and a new short ratio gearbox to improve acceleration. The Diablo VTTT also had upgraded cross drilled and ventilated disks brakes using carbon fiber brake pads.
The story behind the creation of the Diablo VTTT is very interesting, the idea was to bore the standard 5.6-Liter out to a 7.4 Liter unit, but Automobili Lamborghini SpA didn’t advice this move, instead it would be more feasible to use the 7.0 or even the 8.0 Liter marine engine from Lamborghini. This specific Diablo VTTT is presented in Deep Black with light tan interior. The odometer reads 13,527km or 8,410 miles.
This Diablo is believed to have 850Bhp and is #007, designed and constructed by Greg Armstrong of Historic Race Engineering in Costa Mesa, CA “exclusively for Robert Andri”. The car is now a two owner vehicle since new and comes with limited service history documents. The paint on the car presents well, with some signs of the cars age.
The interior is respectable with plush leather and well maintained console. The VTTT featured a dash-mounted switch with three settings, one for valet use which limited the engine to about 3500 rpm, the second setting controlled a 6 psi boost delivering around 600 Bhp while the third one was a full 750 Bhp with 9 psi turbo pressure. The VTTT has a top speed of 358 Km/h (222 Mph). This could be the last chance to own such a rare Lamborghini Diablo as these cars do not normally make it to the public market.
