Enjoys long drives on the race track.

In search of a new soul mate? Forget Tinder - this rare Lamborghini Diablo GTR is anything you'll ever need in life. Introduced new in 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show, the hardcore Diablo comes pre-loaded with 590 horsepower, 472 pound-feet of torque, and an aggressive exterior. Only 30 original examples were built, but this has recently come up for sale on the used market.

Number 22 of 30, the rare Lamborghini wears a bright white exterior with black wheels and carbon fibre accents. Just 10,000 kilometres have been put on the 6.0-litre V12 since new, which is able to propel the supercar to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometres per hour) in just 3.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 211 miles per hour (339 kilometres per hour).

Built on the body of the already impressive Diablo GT, the GTR added even more lightness with a stripped out interior, tipping the scales at just 3,076 pounds (1,395 kilograms). Things like the air conditioning, stereo, and sound proofing were scrapped in place of racing seats, a six-point harness, and a roll cage.

The aluminum alloy body panels were aided by new carbon fibre features like a front splitter and side skirts, as well as reinforced plastic throughout. The suspension was stiffened and lowered, and the racing-spec Brembo brake calipers were installed. This car was built specifically for use on the track, meaning it isn't exactly street legal.

Brand new, the Diablo GTR would set buyers back a whopping $310,000 USD. Though the seller doesn’t say how much this used example will go for, don’t expect it to come cheap. Interested buyers can head over to the Formula Automobile website and inquire.
