Lamborghini Diablo

The Lamborghini Diablo is a car model bearing the prestigious and highly acclaimed brand of Lamborghini. It is one of the Lamborghini models that managed to break the 200 miles per hour speed barrier. In fact it is the first one to do such a feat. It comes in both 5.0 and 6.0 Liter V12 type of engines. It also comes in manual transmission with a 6-speed configuration. It is considered to be a coupe or roadster type of automobile.

This Lamborghini Diablo comes in a 2-door style with a luxurious interior and an elegant exterior. It is classified as one of the best model in the line of numerous sports car available in the market as of date. It has sold thousands and thousands of units not only in the United States but also in various parts of the world. Indeed it is one of the most sought out Lamborghini branded sports car by avid car collectors and enthusiasts as of today.

The engine management system is based on the proprietary Lamborghini LIE electronic engine control system tuned for racing. Fuel injection is sequential multipoint and ignition is static with individual coils. Lamborghini Data Acquisition System, LDAS, and diagnostic functions are integrated in the engine electronic management system.

For the engine cooling, two water radiators in parallel are side mounted to the engine and an engine oil cooler is front mounted as in the Diablo GT.
Additional coolers for gearbox and differential oil are installed in order to better match the racing overloads.

The transmission is on the rear wheels through a Lamborghini 5 speed gearbox with one basic gear ratio option and an alternative option for a shorter 5th gear ratio. The gear box lever is in an asymmetric position on the central tunnel in order to be closer to the steering wheel, for better control. The steering system is power assisted.

The tubular chassis frame integrates the roll bar and is directly connected to the rear wing. The front suspension is modified for racing. Shock absorbers and anti-roll bars are adjustable. The rims are lightweight magnesium alloy with central fixing nut and they accept racing type tyres. A special racing fuel tank with fast filling system has been installed.

The braking system is based on the Diablo GT high performance module. New racing brake calipers have been adopted to better match the very severe racing conditions.

Most of the body is carbon fibre made, except for the roof, which is made of steel for torsional rigidity, while the doors are made of aluminium, for safety reasons.

The cockpit fittings are simplified to meet racing requirements. The driver seat has been moved towards the longitudinal axle of the car, reducing the size of the central tunnel, to ensure a better driving position. Racing switches for ignition and for other functions have been adopted instead of the series push buttons. The fire extinguisher system is installed on the right side of the cockpit with activating switch on the tunnel. The driver's seat is of racing type with a six-point safety belt and the steering wheel is also racing type.
