Lamborghini Diablo: Buying guide & review (1990-2001)

Lamborghini Diablo Lamborghini Diablo Lamborghini Diablo Lamborghini Diablo Lamborghini Diablo Lamborghini Diablo
Some said it was a dinosaur from the start. The size of it, the lack of visibility, the outrageous straight-line speed and the, er, challenging handling. Lamborghini was in trouble when it started on the Diablo, the successor to the long-in-the-tooth Countach, and in too many ways it showed.
 
But the Diablo also had plenty going for it. The V12 was the centrepiece of its appeal, a 500bhp monster developed from the magnificent engine that had powered the great Lamborghinis; the Miura and the Countach among them. The phenomenal noise it made was as politically incorrect as the car itself, and that’s always what the Diablo was about: an old-school devil of a car that was as intoxicating as it was infuriating.
 
Lamborghini, at the time financed by the Swiss-based Mimram brothers, had commissioned Marcello Gandini, creator of the Miura and the Countach, to design the new model. But in 1987 Chrysler, headed by Italo-American Lee Iacocca, bought Lamborghini, providing enough money to complete the development of the Diablo. Chrysler bosses weren’t impressed with Gandini’s designs and eventually Chrysler’s own design studio in the USA made extensive changes, smoothing the sharp edges and corners of Gandini’s version. Gandini was famously unimpressed.
 
The car that emerged certainly looked very different from the Countach. Its cab-forward design was reminiscent of the Group C race cars of the era, but under the skin the design was Countach, even though the spaceframe chassis was now produced in square tubing rather than round (this allowed fixings to be more easily attached). 
 
A body built mostly from composites and aluminium alloy gave great structural strength, but the restrictions of using such an old basic structure, plus more modern-day marketing requirements for air conditioning and electric windows that wound right down, meant that the Diablo weighed more than the Countach and its rivals. Remarkably, it was also two inches wider than even the girthsome Ferrari Testarossa.
 
25 years on the Diablo still has a presence like few other cars on the road, its swooping lines and wide stance give it a menacing demeanour that fits its character perfectly. 492bhp, rear wheel drive and no traction control meant that the first versions were best approached with a racing driver's reflexes and a lot of self control. Dry weather handling was impressive but in wet conditions the best thing to do was to leave the car parked safely at home and take the bus. From 1993 onwards customers had the option of Viscous Traction four wheel drive, this helped put the power to the ground more effectively in adverse conditions.
 
With 2884 sold throughout its 11 year production life it was very successful for Lamborghini, outselling the Countach by over 800 units. This despite a change in ownership and a four year shorter production run.
 

Which Diablo to buy?

 
With an 11 year production run and quite a few updates along the way, there are a variety of models to look at. Audi took over the brand in 1998 and the facelifted cars under its ownership received some much needed upgrades without taking away the character of the original cars. The first models have the cleanest lines and with rear wheel drive only, demand the most respect when accessing their abilities. The last of the line 6 litre models with 550bhp, four-wheel drive, improved handling and climate control are a natural development of the Diablo and are desirable in their own right. 
 
In between these two, there are the roadster models and a number of special edition cars such as the Jota, GT, GT-R as well as various race versions. Rear wheel models were available up until near the end of production, four wheel drive was also made available in both the roadster and hard top versions. The VT Roadster was available in four wheel drive and featured an electric targa top that was stored above the engine lid when not in use. Fuel consumption is ferocious, while practicality is not a strong point – but then again these are not the things you look for in a supercar. 
 
Special editions like the SE30 of which only 150 were produced, or the even rarer Jota models which numbered 15 will always command a premium over the standard cars. The SE30 versions released in 1994 to celebrate 30 years of Lamborghini retained rear wheel drive got a power increase to 530bhp as well as some body and suspension upgrades. The Jota models were basically for track use only and had an open exhaust helping raise power to 603bhp as well as very distinct roof mounted intake ducts. A mid-life facelift saw changes to headlights, dashboards and engines of the regular models as well as some detail changes to air intakes and body panels. What to look for whichever you choose are unabused low mileage cars and preferably a face-lifted model.

Common problems

 
• Maintenance and parts on these cars is not cheap, but annual servicing and preventative maintenance will protect your investment and while the cars are strong there are some issues to be aware of. Annual servicing or every 6750 miles is a must so be prepared to visit your specialist often.
 
• Engines are a development of the original V12 from the 350GT, which was introduced back in 1963. They are robust units, however as with all highly strung engines regular servicing and fluid changes are a must. Look for minor oil leaks from the back of the head gasket, this could point to infrequent maintenance.
 
• There was originally a problem with the hydraulic cam timing chain tensioners fitted to early cars. Most of these should have been updated to the better manual adjusters, but it's best to find out.
 
• Front shock absorbers can drip hydraulic fluid, and may point to dirt having entered the system. a modification can be carried out to fix this issue.
 
• Clutches are known for having short life spans, the huge torque causes wear and generally they will require replacement every 18,000 miles.
 
• Rust can be an issue, so inspect the bodywork carefully. Sills can go, as well as the floor under the front luggage compartment. Also check the signs of bubbling along the door bottoms.
 
• Interiors are generally hard wearing, so be cautious of car with poor seats and dashboards as it can point to neglect.
 
• Climate control came in for criticism on the early 5.7 litre cars, all 6 litre versions had much improved systems.

Summary and prices

 
The Lamborghini Diablo is the quintessential '90s supercar, it demands your total attention but rewards you with the kind of raw edged thrills that its modern computer controlled counterparts lack. With looks to match, it remains a very desirable machine.  
 
Early 5.7 Litre 2 wheel drive Diablos can be found for around £130,000. A full service history is a must, and a careful check for any signs of accident damage should be carried out, as this will greatly affect the value of the car. The later 6 litre models generally command a fair premium and a concours condition car with low mileage can set you back up to £250,000. 
 
Low production run special editions and face-lifted cars are generally more sought after. There is no doubt that these cars values are rising and getting the right one should ensure that your weekend drives are filled with the kind of raw adrenaline filled excitement that only a Lamborghini can offer.

    POA POA

    The Diablo or 'devil' in Spanish was built between 1990 and 2001 and was the first Lamborghini capable of attaining a top speed in excess of 200mph. Its power came from a 5.7 litre, 48-valve version of the existing Lamborghini V12 featuring dual overhead cams and computer-controlled multi-point fuel injection, producing a maximum output of 492hp and 428 lb/ft of torque. It could reach 62mph in about 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 202mph. It was rear wheel drive and the engine was mid-mounted to aid its weight balance. The Diablo came better equipped than the Countach; standard features included fully adjustable seats and steering wheel, electric windows, an Alpine stereo system and power steering from 1993 onwards. A few options were available including a custom-moulded driver's seat, remote CD changer and subwoofer, rear spoiler, factory fitted luggage set and an exclusive Brequet clock for the dash priced at $10,500. In 1995, this model Lamborghini had a Safety Car role in Formula 1, most notably at the Canadian Grand Prix where, fortunately, it did not need to be officially deployed.

    The Diablo SV was introduced in 1995 at the Geneva Auto Show, reviving the super veloce title first used on the Miura SV. The SV was based on the standard Diablo and thus lacked the four-wheel drive of the VT. A notable feature of the SV was an increase in horsepower to 517 PS (380 kW; 510 hp), which, paired with the two-wheel drive layout, could increase the likelihood of loss of traction during hard driving. Interestingly, despite its higher power output, the SV was priced as the entry-level model in the Diablo range, falling below the standard Diablo by a small margin. An adjustable rear spoiler was installed 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 lamps as on the SE30, dual front foglamps (rather than the quad style found on all previous models), an extra set of front brake cooling ducts, a ducted engine lid similar to that installed on the Diablo SE30 Jota, and optional "SV" decals for the sides of the car. The SV also featured larger diameter front brakes (340 mm (13.4 in)) and a corresponding increase in front wheel size to 18 inches.;For More information contact Nino Barresi 01223-425300 or 07768 775391.

    The Lamborghini Diablo SV was introduced at the 1995 Geneva Auto Show, reviving the super veloce title first used on the Miura SV. The SV was based on the standard Diablo and therefore lacked the four-wheel drive of the VT. Combining the two wheel drive configuration with a power increase to 510 bhp produced a car which was highly entertaining, but demanded respect from the driver. Perhaps in recognition of this, the SV was fitted with larger front brakes and an adjustable rear spoiler. This stunning RHD SV was the 1996 Motor Show car, and is the only example of this iconic car which was produced in Blu Speciale, a colour which suits the car extremely well. Presented in excellent condition throughout and fitted with uprated wheels and a sports exhaust. Only 46,000 kms from new and driving exactly as it should. UK RHD SVs were produced in very small numbers, and there are only 13 currently licensed or on SORN.

    The Diablo VT was introduced in 1993. Although the VT differed from the standard Diablo in a number of ways, by far the most notable change was the addition of all wheel drive, which made use of a viscous center differential (a modified version of LM002's 4WD system). This provided the new nomenclature for the car (VT stands for viscous traction). The new drivetrain could direct up to 25% of the 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 engine refinements. Many of these improvements, save the four-wheel drive system, soon transferred to the base Diablo, making the cars visually nearly identical.

    The Diablo VT Roadster was introduced in December 1995 and featured an electrically operated carbon fiber targa top which was stored above the engine lid when not in use. Besides the roof, the roadster's body was altered from the fixed-top VT model in a number of ways. The front bumper was revised, replacing the quad rectangular driving lamps with two rectangular and two round units. The brake cooling ducts were moved inboard of the driving lamps and changed to a straked design, while the rear ducts featured the vertical painted design seen on the SE30. The engine lid was changed substantially in order to vent properly when the roof panel was covering it. The roadster also featured revised 17 inch wheels. The air intakes on top/sides were made larger than the coupe Diablos. In 1998 the wheels have been updated to 18 inch, and the engine power raised to 530 HP by adding the variable valve timing system. Top speed specification was raised to 335 km/h (208 mph). In 1999 the dashboard received a major optical update by Audi, and the pop-up headlights were replaced by fixed headlights, same as for the coupes. This resulted in a better aerodynamic shape and modern optics.

  • 1997 (R) LAMBORGHINI DIABLO SV Coupe 2dr

    £249,995 £249,995

    Lamborghini launched a facelifted Diablo in 1999, simplifying the model range by eliminating the "base" Diablo (since the SV model had become the new entry-level trim anyway) and applying universal revisions across the lineup. The most immediately noticeable exterior change was the replacement of the previous Diablo's pop-up headlamp units with fixed composite lenses, borrowed under license from their original application in the Nissan 300ZX Z32. All Diablos were also fitted with new 18 inch wheels. The Diablo range also received an updated interior. Instead of the traditional flat dashboard with a separate upright instrument binnacle, as in many Italian sports cars of the era (and the previous Diablo), the new dash was an integrated wave-shaped design. A thin strip of black glass ran the length of the dash and contained various instrument indicator and warning lamps. This aesthetic design was inspired by Bang & Olufsen Hi-Fi products. Under the engine lid, the tried-and-true V12 was bumped to 536 PS (394 kW; 529 hp) and 605 N.m (446 lb.ft) of torque for both the SV and VT models and now featured variable valve timing. For the first time ever in a Lamborghini, the Diablo was equipped with a Kelsey-Hayes ABS unit, complementing larger diameter brake rotors. When you see an SV badge on a Lamborghini, you just know it means business. SV, or Super Veloce, has been used by Lamborghini to mark a truly special version of their cars since the 1970's, and each time the cars have been wilder and as always very collectable. The Diablo SV was based on the 2WD Diablo, back before Audi made all the cars 4WD. The V12 was tuned to now deliver 510 bhp which shot the car to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and increased the top speed to 204 mph. The car gained a larger rear wing, huge air intakes over the engine cover, full alcantara interior and the option of SV graphics. This 1997 Diablo SV is a stunning example, certainly one for the serious Lambo collector. It has covered just 14,682 km and had only 2 owners from new. The exterior is Giallo paintwork with Nero SV graphics and the interior is Nero alcantara with Giallo stitching and logos. The car is very original, down the OZ Racing stickers on the wide split rims and the unused white gloves in the complete toolkit. All the original Alpine sound system is present, as are the Lamborghini floor mats. It is presented in outstanding condition, as you would expect of a car of this heritage. With the prices of classic Lamborghini's soaring and Diablo's becoming increasingly difficult to find, we have no doubt this will be an investment car and one that is important to the brands history. It is currently undergoing full preparation including machine polishing of the paintwork ready to be displayed in our showroom.
