Product Overview

Lamborghini Diablo is a high-performance supercar in production from 1990 to 2001. It was available with a various tunes of two Lamborghini V12 engines that displaced 5.7 to 6.0 liters. Debuted with RWD, most Diablos were sold with AWD. The only transmission offered was a 5-speed manual.
Perhaps the most iconic sports car of the 1990s, the Diablo boasts an exceptionally bold exterior styling. With its scissor doors open, the Diablo found its way on posters in many children's bedrooms.
However, even with AWD, the vehicle is a handful to handle. Its wedge-like styling looks cool but is not particularly aerodynamic.
With a 15.2L/100km (15.5mpg) fuel "dis-economy", owners have to be prepared to pay for their "smiles-per-mile". Utility-minded owners will likely need to keep an alternative for hauling things around, as the tiny cargo space is almost surely insufficient.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Lamborghini Diablo comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners. This provides the good cornering performance and durability.
