Used Lamborghini Diablo For Sale
The list of exotic, sports, and luxury cars available on duPont REGISTRY is seemingly endless. Of the many bestsellers and high-line cars available, duPont REGISTRY also has the fabled Lamborghini Diablo for sale. The variants include Diablo VT, Diablo VT Roadster, Diablo SE30, and SE30 Jota, and Diablo VT 6.0 and VT 6.0 SE.
Launched in 1990, the Lamborghini Diablo was Lamborghini’s first production model that had the ability to go over 200 MPH. In addition to multi-point fuel injection, the engine also had 485hp and 428lb-ft of torque. The V12 engine was upgraded to a 6.0-liter version in 1999. This 6.0 L V12 helped in increasing the maximum output to 575 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque, leveling up the maximum speed to 204 MPH. The Lamborghini Diablo for sale can be accelerated from 0 to 60 within just 3.4 seconds.
All the variations of the Lamborghini Diablo offer 5-speed manual transmission. The transmission is one of the most popular elements of the Diablo due to the dogleg first gear. The fact that the cars of today no longer go for manual transmissions make the variants of the Lamborghini Diablo even more coveted and alluring. Therefore, for those who want to drive at high speeds, the Diablo serves as the perfect choice, especially for the riders who don’t want to go for cars with semi-automatic or fully automatic transmission.
Between the years of 1990 to 2001, all the vehicles under the Lamborghini Diablo umbrella contained servo-assisted four-wheel disc brakes. The discs in the standard Diablo models measured 13 inches in the front and 11.2 inches in the rear. The other Diablo variants, including the VT, SE30, and VT Roadster had discs that measured 12.2 inches in the rear and 13 inches in the front end. The brakes went through an alteration in 1998 with the inclusion of Brembo servo-assisted ventilated and cross-drilled four-wheel discs. Your Lamborghini Diablo could either be equipped with Kelsey-Hayes or Lucas ABS, depending on the model you choose. The Diablo has extremely strong brakes providing the rider with immense safety, especially since the later models of the vehicle come with an overall stopping distance of about 125 feet from 60 MPH to 0.
Two extremely reputed designers were associated with the design of the Lamborghini Diablo models, namely Marcello Gandini and Tom Gale. Both these designers gave utmost importance to speed. They got together and decided that in order for the Lamborghini Diablo to compete against its best competitors, it had to have a speed of at least 196 MPH. This is why weight distribution was a focal point of the Diablo.
It has a fully loaded curb, with the weight ranging from 3,053lbs in the Diablo SV-R to 3,651lbs in the Diablo 6.0 VT.
Not all cars are nice cars. Some don’t play by the rules. Of all the cute & civilized models that normal people treat as simple appliances, there also exists a darker side. A device devoted to wreak havoc and incite feelings of inadequacy and greed should have an evil name; Lamborghini’s Diablo Roadster for sale, was a product of a decade of excess. If you don’t fear the burning ring of fire, give the Roadster his due and let us explain how it lives up to such a name.
- 1. Power: If you ever owned a car designed in the 80’s, you know that power was in short supply. Lamborghini used every trick in the book to coax 492 hp and 248 lb-ft from their 5.7L V12. More power than the F40, without the uncontrollable turbos.
- 2. Style: Every kid had this poster on the wall. More than justification for college, Diablo was a slap in the face to conservative 90’s car culture.
- 3. No Compromises: Diablo was among the first Italians to offer power seats, power steering and Alpine audio. Finding any car of this vintage with these options is rare, making it an almost comfortable daily driver.
- 4. AWD: Chrysler invested millions into making Diablo unbeatable, and launched the All Wheel Drive “VT” model in 1993. “Vicious Traction” was a refinement of the LM002’s system which could send up to 25% of torque to the front wheels.
- 5. Carbon Fiber: Working many late nights in the Lambo body shop, Horacio Pagani paved the way for Carbon Fiber to replace aluminum. In this way, Diablo is still more advanced than your daily driver.
- 6. Rarity: Under 3,000 cars were produced, so your chances of seeing another one in the wild are very low.
- 7. Remix Edition: Audi’s influences were inevitable, so they revised Diablo for 1999. Many external changes and a larger engine helped Diablo prepare for the arrival of the Murcielago.
- 8. Track Car: If you enjoy racing on the weekends, not much work is required to make Diablo into a fierce competitor.
- 9. The Bad Guy: Diablo is 50% Tony Soprano and 50% Tony Montana. Sometimes it just feels good to be bad. If your alter-ego is an Italian sociopath.
- 10. Final “True” Lamborghini: Back on December 21, 1999, a Diablo SV rolled off of the production line as the final “true” Lamborghini. This was because after this point, in 2000, Volkswagen put their production changes into effect.
