Twin Eaton Roots-Style Superchargers running 8psi

His Diablo is the black one.

from what hes told me:

hes been 195MPH
capable of speeds over 230MPH
Less than 8 lamborghinis in the world with this setup.
Took it to Italy to have it installed.


It sounds like an airplane, seriously. Its passed me a few times on the highway and it throws pebbles and rocks behind it from its power. If youve ever been on a plane, during landing the sound the jet engine makes when its being slowed, THATS what this sounds like. Ill get some more pictures today when my friend has his Jewelry store's christmas party.

Heres the thing - hes letting my friend borrow it for a day as a xmas present. =O

Re: Twin-Supercharged Diablo VT

Re. Lamborghini Diablo Twin Supercharged Roadster. ( The black one )

Hi my name is David from the UK , i purchased this car off All Type Autos in early 2016, this is the fire damaged roadster on most web sites and its the one
previous owned by a chap called Joe in Jacksonville
Florida.
Ok i am an avid collector of Lamborghin,s, here,s a run down of the project so far, the car has been fully
stripped, all engine bay shot blasted, complete
wiring loom replaced with factory wiring, all new parts ordered and fitted from the factory, all leather
interior has now been sent back to the factory for re
covering in new leather, cost so far has been in excess of around 100.000 ( including engine upgrade )
I have decided to update engine to a 6.0 unit with the twin supercharger system fitted, the factory has
mentioned this should make the car run around
900 bhp and possibly around 235 mph, at this
new set up with factory dealet assistance it will be
1 of 1 only 6.0 twin supercharged roadsters in the world.
The car will be completed around July 2017, i will keep you all updated with a few pictures in 2017.

Many Thanks
David. ( UK )
