Automobili Lamborghini is celebrating 30 years of an iconic super sports car - the Diablo. The Diablo was launched in 1990 but it had been under development for 5 years before it set foot into any home. Codenamed Project 132, the Diablo was in fact a replacement for the much loved Countach. The clean and aggressive lines are the result of a project by Marcello Gandini that was partially revised by Chrysler's design centre, which in the meantime became the majority shareholder of Automobili Lamborghini.

The Lamborghini Diablo was under development for 5 years, and it was codenamed Project 132

When the Diablo was launched in 1990, it was officially the fastest production car in the world capable of a top speed of 325 kmph and that was thanks to the 5.7-litre engine with 4 overhead camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder with multi-point electronic injection. It pushed out 485 horses and a massive 580 Nm of peak torque. In fact till about 1993, the Diablo came with no driving aids or a power steering. It's absolute dynamic behaviour was the result of intense development work involving the rally champion Sandro Munari.
