About the Car

The Cosmic Girl returns!
This is a very rare opportunity to own a piece of history, the actual Diablo from Jamiroquai's "Cosmic Girl" video, a car he recently told the story of on Top Gear.

The Diablo SE30 is one of the rarest and most sought after Lamborghini's of all time.
Just 150 of these were made, and far fewer remain today.
The last of the "proper" Lambo's, after these came the 6.0 cars which had Audi build and influence.
Out of the 150 built, we believe only 16 were RHD, so this is a very rare car.

Built to celebrate 30 years of building road cars, the styling of the SE30 showed some subtle references to the companies older cars.
The difference between this and the regular Diablo included a deep front spoiler with supplementary driving lights, twin-duct side intakes, an engine cover which mimicked the one on the Miura supercar and ultra-light magnesium wheels. While most of the body remained in aluminum, these new pieces were constructed in carbon fibre.
The side windows were a copy from the original Countach windows, with just a small piece that moved.
Also the engine was gold plated, not something you see often.

The 5.7 V12 gained a free flowing exhaust, modified cylinder head and magnesium castings which took the power up to 525 bhp.
This meant a 207 mph top speed, incredible for its day and still faster than most supercars today.

The interior featured new sports seats with carbon fibre back, lashings of carbon fibre to the dash and tunnel, then all trimmed in soft suede.

We sold this car back in 1999 to Jay Kay (the singer for Jamiroquai) after his SE30 was destroyed in a crash.
He kept it for a number of years before selling it back to us. We then sold it three times again, and it remained with its last keeper for almost 4 years.
We have known the car all its life, and there is noone better suited to sell it again.

Finished in Viola Metallic (the best colour for a Diablo) with full Blu suede interior, this looks absolutely stunning and is fully original throughout.
This is number 142 / 150 built, with a beautiful badge to show this.

It has covered 27,804 km (17,276 Miles) and has 5 previous owners.
The bodywork is absolutely spotless, with no dents or scratches or corrosion.
The 18" magnesium wheels are free from any scratches or kerb marks.
The interior is again unmarked, with everything working just as it should.

The big V12 fires into life with a bark from the exhausts, and the car pulls away easily. The clutch is very good and the power steering makes it a lot easier than an early Diablo.

The service history is a combination of Lamborghini main dealers and the most recent done by a specialist.

There simply isn't another Diablo like this on the market, and may not be for a long time.
Most of these cars are locked away in collections now, and this is one that can surely only appreciate in value.
A true modern classic.

There is only a handful of SE30's for sale in the world, and they all are LHD cars, averaging £150k to £160k.
Ours appears to be the only RHD car for sale anywhere, adding more to the exclusivity of it.

There is a nice pile of paperwork with the car, including an old advertisement for it and paperwork to show its celebrity background.

The car sits on Pirelli P-Zero tyres all around:

Front: 235 x 40 x ZR17
Rear: 335 x 30 x ZR18 (102Y)

We have all original handbooks, service book, tan leather wallet, keys and fobs.
