Lamborghini Diablo

The Lamborghini Diablo is a sports car built by Lamborghini in Italy and introduced in 1990, replacing the Lamborghini Countach. At a base price of approx. US$ 240,000, it had a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph). It came with two seats, mid-engined V12, 5-speed manual transmission, manual windows, and a manual seat adjuster.

Compared to more recent sport cars of the same category, both new Lamborghini models and different brands like Ferrari, this car has a very high center of gravity (due to the relatively old technology used for the engine), that negatively affects the car's handling. In the hands of an expert driver, this car is one of the fastest ever made, but inexperienced drivers should avoid pushing its limits.
