After three decades, the Diablo still turns heads

Lamborghini diablo sounds

The Lamborghini Diablo was unveiled in 1990 as the successor to the legendary Countach, a car that adorned countless bedroom walls in the Eighties, and while most Diablo are about three decades old by now, and prices are starting to rise for decent ones, this Devil still has a long way to go if she wants to catch up with the seven-figure value of the classic Miura or early Countach versions.

But that doesn’t take away from the fact the Lamborghini Diablo is an absolutely stunning car, both in performance and in sound, and while the Diablo was already a lot more comfortable compared to a Countach, the later V12 flagships went above and beyond in that department, the Murciélago was a big step ahead while the current Aventador can’t really be compared to a Miura or a Countach.

Over the span of the production period for the Diablo, from 1990 to 2001, less than 3,000 units were built, and while originally introduced as a 2WD version, it didn’t take Lamborghini too long to introduce the VT, the four-wheel-drive, version, later joined by the Diablo VT Roadster, the Diablo SV for Sport Veloce, the lightweight edition, and let’s not forget the stunning Diablo SE30 that celebrated the 30th Anniversary in 1993, a car that could even be ordered in ‘JOTA’ spec. Add the Diablo GT, the street version of the GT-R race car, and the final VT 6.0 model and you end up with an amazing plethora of different versions, most of which can be found in the 10-minute video below from NM2255:
