Lamborghini Diablo


Lamborghini Diablo

With the Countach looking very dated by the late 1980s, Lamborghini needed an answer to take them into the next decade. The company created a super Countach in order to evaluate parts for its new sportscar. At first the car came out with just rear-wheel drive, but in 1991 it was decided that in order to harness the full power quota which the car was to put out, it would need 4WD, so the VT version was launched. This was still heavily biased to rear-wheel drive, however, with just 27 per cent going to the front. The engine used was the same throughout, being a 60-degree V12 which was based on a design from Lamborghini's first V12 in 1963. It was all-alloy in construction and use short stroke to allow very high revving. Handling was nothing short of amazing, with double wishbones all around and a very wide track.
