The Diablo, car of the 20th century - the STORY

The duPont Registry, a major monthly car magazine launched back in 1985, filled with collectible luxury and exotic automobiles for sale has conducted a survey among it's readers worldwide and the visitors to their web site, to compile a list of the most notable cars during this century.

Participation was possible from January 1999 to May 1999 and they had to conclude that the Lamborghini Diablo is in fact by far the number one car of the 20th century.

The top five places all went to exotic cars, the McLaren F1 became number two, while the powerful Viper GTS Coupe took third place.

The Lamborghini Countach series was located at the 15th place while the fabulous Miura was at the 86th place, probably because of the age of these magnificent cars, the younger cars took the first places, although 6th place was in fact taken by the Mercedes SL300 Gullwing. As expected Ferrari has the most cars in this list, with a total of 15 cars, followed closely by Porsche with nine cars, it should however be noted that both these companies started producing cars a long time before Lamborghini did, and that even the very recent McLaren factory came second, in front of all the Ferrari's.
