Lamborghini Diablo
Lamborghini Diablo is a sports car that has the highest performance in terms of the engine in the middle, between 1990 and 2001, the car was built by the Italian sports car Lamborghini. Lamborghini is capable of reaching a top speed of over 200 miles per hour (320 km / h). After the end of its production run in 2001, the Diablo was replaced by the Lamborghini Murcielago. Diablo means "devil" in Spanish.

History of development
In the era of the companies financed by the Swiss-based Mimram brothers, Lamborghini began development codenamed Project 132 in June 1985 to replace the Countach models. And this car can reach a top speed should be at least 315 km / h (196 mph).
Lamborghini Diablo interior
This car was designed by Marcello Gandini, who had designed its two predecessors. When Chrysler bought the company in 1987, providing money to complete its development, management was not satisfied with the results Gandini design and finally commissioned the design team in Detroit to execute a third extensive redesign, smoothing out the trademark sharp edges and corners of Gandini's original design. In fact, Gandini was so disappointed with the "softened" shape that he would later realize his original design Cizeta-Moroder V16T.
This car became known as Diablo. In the words of Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, the Diablo is designed "solely to be the biggest head-turner in the world."
The project cost is believed to have cost a total of 6,000,000,000 shares with less lira.

The Diablo was released to the public for sale on January 21, 1990. Diablo Power comes from the 5.7 L (348 cu in), 48-valve version of the existing Lamborghini V12 featuring dual overhead cams and fuel injection computer-controlled multi-point, producing a maximum output of 499 PS (367 kW; 492 hp) and 580 N · m (428 pounds · ft) of torque. Vehicle can reach speeds of 100 km / h (62 mph) in about 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 202 mph (325 km / h). The Diablo was rear-wheel drive and mid-mounted engine to help balance the weight.
The Diablo came better equipped than the Countach. Anti-lock brakes were not initially available, although they will eventually be used. Several options are available, including custom-molded driver's seat, the remote CD changer and subwoofer, rear spoiler, factory fitted luggage set (priced $ 2,600) and an exclusive Breguet clock for the dash (priced $ 10,500).

Diablo VT
Diablo VT was introduced to the public in 1993. Although VT is different from the standard Diablo in some ways, the most notable change from the Diablo VT was the addition of all-wheel drive, which makes use of viscous center differential (version remodified LM002's 4WD system). This gives a new nomenclature for the car (VT stands for viscous traction). New drivetrain could direct up to 25% of torque to the front wheels to aid traction during rear wheel slip, thus significantly improving the handling characteristics of the car.

Other improvements debuting on the VT included front air intakes below the driving lamps to improve brake cooling, larger intakes in the rear arches, a
more ergonomic interior with a revised dashboard, electronically adjustable dampers, four-piston brake calipers, power steering, and minor repairs machine. Many of these improvements, save the four-wheel drive system, soon transferred to the base Diablo, making the cars visually nearly identical.

Diablo SE30 and SE30 Jota
Diablo SE30 was introduced to the public in 1994 as a limited special model, this production to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the company. This car is designed for street-legal vehicles that are lighter and more powerful than the standard Diablo. Engine receives a healthy boost as much as 530 PS (390 kW; 523 hp) with a fuel-way system tuned, free flowing exhaust, and magnesium intake manifold. The car remains rear-wheel drive to save weight, and electrically adjustable shock absorbers removed from VT models, but it comes with an adjustable anti-roll bar stiffness can be controlled from the interior, on the fly.
Reduced the car's weight by replacing the power glass side windows with fixed plexiglas (with a small sliding vent window as on many race cars) and removing luxury features such as air conditioning, stereo, and power steering. Carbon fiber seats with 4-point racing harness and fire suppression systems added to the racial nature of the vehicle.

Outside, SE30 different from other Diablo models with a revised front fascia featuring straked brake cooling ducts and a deeper spoiler, while the rear coolant channel is converted into a vertical body design colored. The raging bull emblem was moved from the front of the trunk lid to the car nose panel between the front indicators. Engine lid had slats covering the narrow rear window, while a larger spoiler fitted as standard equipment. Single rear fog lamp and rear backup lights, which have been on both sides of the rear grille, were moved to the bumper, these changes will be applied to all Diablo models in the lineup. Completing the exterior variations were special magnesium alloy wheels, SE30 badging, and a new metallic purple paint color (this can be changed on request).
Only 150 SE30 models were built, and of these, about 15 converted to "Jota" specification (although 28 Jota kits were produced). The "Jota" was a factory modification kit designed to change the race-oriented SE30 into an actual circuit racer, albeit with a street-legal operation costs. A revised engine lid with two lines protruding above the roofline forced air into the intake system, the same lid design would later be used on the Diablo SV models. With more tuning respectable Diablo V12 engine, the Jota kit produced nearly 603 PS (444 kW; 595 hp) and 639 N · m (471 pounds · ft) of torque. An open exhaust system produced deafening roar of the engine, one of the main factors Jota status track-only, although some owners converted back to standard exhaust to enjoy their "super Diablo" on the road. The rearview mirror of the interior was also removed because it is really useful in conjunction with a revised engine lid, further adding to the feeling of racing a car.

Diablo SV
Diablo SV was introduced to the public in 1995 at the Geneva Auto Show, reviving the Super veloce title first used on the Miura SV. SV is based on the standard Diablo and thus do not have four-wheel drive of the VT. An important feature of the SV was an increase in horsepower to 517 PS (380 kW; 510 hp), which is paired with two-wheel drive layout, could increase the likelihood of loss of traction when driving hard. Interestingly, despite the higher power output, SV valued as entry-level model in the Diablo range, falling below the standard Diablo by a small margin. An adjustable rear spoiler fitted as standard equipment and could be color-matched to the car body or formed from carbon fiber. Other exterior changes included black tail lamp surrounds, repositioned rear
fog and reverse lights on the SE30, dual front foglamps (not the quad style found on all previous models), an extra set of front brake cooling ducts, similar to channel the engine cover installed on the Diablo SE30 Jota , and optional "SV" decals for the sides of the car. SV also featured larger diameter front brakes (340 mm (13.4 in)) and a corresponding increase in the size of the front wheels up to 18 inches.
In 1998, a limited run of 20 cars Diablo SV was produced exclusively for the U.S. market and called the Monterey Edition. The most prominent feature of this edition is the use SE30/VT Roadster style of air intakes in front of the rear wheels, not like (and survived) SV traditional style. Several cars were painted unusual, bright colors. One Monterey Edition, featuring upgraded engine and brakes, driven by Mario Andretti during the Lamborghini-sponsored "Running of the Bulls" event in California. The Monterey Edition predicted to be collectible, but due to the popularity of fixed-lamp models to follow (see below), the value does not go up significantly over time.
