    I figure this is an easy question but I can't find the answer. I'm assuming that it does not refer to the mid 80's Italian designer Sergio Vallente so someone please chime in here.

    Hi

    SV stands for "Sport Velture" or something - I could not find the article on my computer right now....but I know its something like that, in other words - the name "SV" first appeared in Miura P400SV in the early 70s. It stands for "Super Fast" in English.
    It also means 4WD

    Sport Veloce. Lambocars is a great site, so is Lamborghiniregistry.com

    Lambocars uses my car in the Sv description.

    Hey allanlambo.

    Just wanna say that you have a grrrreat Diablo - love it.
    We dont have any SV's in Norway, only 4 or 5 regular Diablos - they will coste toooooo much.
    (can you imagine? Norway is the 2'nd or 3'rd richest contry in the world)
