At the end of 2020, the Lamborghini Diablo celebrated its 30th anniversary.

One of the most iconic models of the modern car industry, the Lamborghini Diablo, entered the market in January 1990. The history of the car began in 1985, when the company’s engineers were tasked with designing a model that would replace the Countach sports car. The well-known Marcello Gandini was responsible for the design of the novelty.

The Lamborghini Diablo was powered by a 5.7-liter 12-cylinder engine with 485 hp. and 580 Nm of torque. Despite the fact that the model was a full-fledged supercar, it had leather interior, air conditioning, power windows and power seats. At the same time, cars manufactured before 1993 did not have any electronic driver assistance or power steering.

In 1993, the world saw the Diablo VT, the brand’s first all-wheel drive car. A little later, the brand released the 523-horsepower Diablo SE30 and the Diablo SV with 510 horsepower. Two years later, the company introduced a roadster based on its new supercar. In 1999, after the purchase of Lamborghini by Audi, a restyled Diablo SV with a 529-horsepower engine and brakes with ABS was presented. Over the years, the model has sold 2,903 cars.
