The Diablo was first presented to the public for sale on January 21, 1990. Power came from a 5.7 L (348 cu in), 48-valve version of the existing Lamborghini V12 used in the Miura. It featured dual overhead cams and computer-controlled multi-point fuel injection, producing a maximum output of 499 PS (367 kW; 492 hp) and 580 Nm (428 lb/ft) of torque. The vehicle could reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in about 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). The Diablo was rear-wheel drive and the engine was mid-mounted to aid its weight balance. With the introduction of the VT, the Diablo gained four-wheel drive. In 1998 the wheels were updated to 18 inches and the engine power raised to 530 HP by adding the variable valve timing system (VVT). Top speed specification was raised to 335 km/h (208 mph). This very low mileage example features blue seat piping.
