uilt from 1990 to 2001. The early versions had a mid-mounted 5.7 litre V-12, 48 valve V12 , 492 horsepower (367 kW) and 427 foot-pounds (579 N·m) of torque. The vehicle could reach 60 mph in slightly over 4 seconds, with a top speed of 202 mph. These were remarkable stats for 1990 and still are today. The Lamborghini Diablo was one of the first production cars to reach over 200 miles per hour. The Lambo had vertical doors which started with the Lamborghini Countach. The sticker price in 1990 was a whopping $240,000.
In 1993 Lamborghini added the VT version to the lineup. VT stands for viscous-coupling type all-wheel-drive system instead of rear wheel drive. This helped handle 500+ horsepower better. The new version also had Brembo brakes and Alpine sound systems. Also in 93 Lamborghini released an SE 30 (special edition) version which became and instant collector car for years to come. The car was sold in limited numbers for their 30th anniversary. The car was more of a race car than any Lamborghini to date; it had no radio, air-conditioning, sound deadening material, and had carbon fiber seats. This reduced the cars weight considerably. Also it did not have the VT’s all wheel drive which reduced even more weight. Horsepower was increased to 525 and top speed was a claimed 207 mph!
In 95 Lamborghini added the SV version to the lineup which was essentially a cheaper rear wheel drive version instead of all wheel drive.
In 1996 Lamborghini added the VT roadster version; essentially it had a removable hardtop to create a convertible atmosphere. Horsepower was increased to 530 and 0-60 times were under 4 seconds. In my opinion, this is the most desirable and best looking of the Diablos. Having owned a 1998 Lamborghini Diablo VT roadster (pictured above) I know this car to great detail. The roof could be removed by unlatching 2 latches in the front and 2 in the back of the roof. The roof itself was extremely light having been made of carbon fiber and made a nice look from the interior when the roof was on. After unlatching it was best to have another person help you remove the roof because of its size. The roof could be stored on top of the engine cover which was located behind the seats. I personally preferred to leave the cover at home if you knew it was not going to rain as the roof covered some of the design aspects of the car and also made the engine a little hotter by shielding more heat that was escaping the engine.
In 2001 Lamborghini introduced the Diablo VT 6.0. Engine size was increased from 5.7 litres to 6.0 and horsepower was up to 550. 0-60 times were as low as 3.5 seconds. These cars were only made in hardtop, no roadsters. The Diablo went out with a bang with The millennium roadster in 2000 and the 6.0 Special Editions before being replaced with the Lamborghini Murcielago in 2002. was b
