1996 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster

The Diablo VT Roadster was introduced in 1995 and had a targa top. Besides the roof, the roadster’s body was altered from the fixed-top VT model in a number of ways. The front bumper was revised, replacing the quad rectangular driving lamps with two rectangular and two round units. The brake cooling ducts were moved inboard of the driving lamps and changed to a straked design, while the rear ducts featured the vertical painted design seen on the SE30.

VT Stands for the viscous traction 4wd system.
