Third in line of the Lamborghini supercar sequence, supplanting the Miura and Countach respectively, the fabulous Diablo represented a fresh direction for Lamborghini. . The Diablo series began in 1990, ending the sixteen-year production of the iconic Countach. The Diablo series production ran for eleven years to 2001 through some rough financial times for the company which saw multiple changes in ownership and design directions.
Design of the Diablo was originally carried out by Marcello Gandini who had designed the Miura and Countach for Bertone, under contract with Swiss brothers and Lamborghini financiers, Jean Claude Mimran and Patrick Mimran, who started the design process called Project 132 in 1985.
Chrysler's purchase of Lamborghini in 1987 further delayed the debut of Project 132 as the new parent company was not comfortable with Gandini's design and as long as Chrysler was funding the project, the design had to go their way with a lot riding on the new car, a team of designers in Detroit was assigned to the project in order to refine what Gandini had started. Chrysler's design team softened some of the hard edges and corners and so while the car very much kept the Lamborghini sensibilities, it wasn't as over the top and rakish as Gandini, who had been named among the top car designers of the century, would have preferred.
What came out of the design-by-committee was a dramatic and spectacular car keeping the Countach signature touch scissor doors but that was where the similarities ended. Lamborghini/Chrysler wanted a 200MPH car capable to keeping up with competitors such as Ferrari F40, Jaguar XJ220 and newcomer McLaren with the F1 which quickly took the mantle of fastest road car.
In 1994, Chrysler and Lamborghini parted ways, the company was sold to a group of Indonesian investors and by 1998 was sold again to Audi AG (the Volkswagen Group). Throughout the turbulent times at Lamborghini, the Diablo survived as production was never halted.
Upon Audi's take-over of Lamborghini, a project was set to modernize and update the Diablo as the replacement Murcilagowas in the works. Audi contracted Luc Donckerwolke to design a more refined, modern Diablo and in 2000, the VT 6.0 (commonly known as the 6-liter or 6.0) was born.
The Diablo 6.0 featured significant styling and performance changes under Donckerwolke's direction, the last of the Diablo range ran for only two years, 2000-2001with a mere forty examples produced. Donckerwolke made subtle changes to the Diablo, most notably at the front with inset headlights instead of the usual pop-up's.
Under the headlights, the air dam with large air intakes ahead of the front wheels while further refinements included further smoothing of hard lines of the fenders sweeping back to the enormous rear section which remained largely the same with huge air ducts atop the rear fenders with dramatic air ducts atop the engine bonnet to help keep the big, snarling 6-litre, 543BHP V12 cool.
Inside, the 6.0 was further refined, gone was the familiar rectangular interior of the Countach in favor of a sweeping leather dash with the instrument cluster thoughtfully spread out, creating a more comfortable and luxurious cabin with added carbon fiber touches throughout with the famous six speed gated shifter sitting atop the console with actual working air conditioning and sound system.
The looks of the Diablo 6.0 prompted Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson to state that the car to be solely the biggest head-turnerin-the-world". Expressions of how the 6.0 drives range from 543BHP rage to not a car for everyone.
