At the 1999 Geneva Motor Show Lamborghini has presented a new very high performance car that will be produced in limited edition. Only 80 Diablos GT will leave the factory of Sant’Agata Bolognese to find happy owners among the enthusiasts of supercars.
The Diablo GT is derived from the experience gained in the development of a GT2 race car combined with Lamborghini’s competence in the production of high performance road cars. The result is a sport car with very high performance, while homologated in most countries, and driveable on open roads. In fact the Lamborghini Diablo GT is the fastest production car in the world with a top speed of 338 km/h.
The most important innovations, in comparison with the Diablo’s range already in production are:
- new Lamborghini V12, 6 litre engine
- new design of the body
- wider front track
- improved chassis and suspension
- reduced weight
- new sportier interior
- significantly higher performances
The new Lamborghini Diablo GT became available September 1999.
