Development of the Lamborghini Diablo began in 1985, only a few months after the Mimran brothers purchased the company out of the receivership it had entered following the 1978 bankruptcy. The Mimrans invested heavily in the company’s expansion and Sant’Agata Bolognese was finally able to work on a successor for the Countach.

Development took more than four years, and the finished product was shown to the public in January 1990.

Like most Lamborghinis, the Diablo was named after a bull. Diablo, which is Spanish for devil, was a ferocious bull raised by the Duke of Veragua in the 19th century, famous for fighting a battle with famed matador "El Chicorro" in the late 1860s.

Production of the Diablo lasted until 2001 and included nearly 2,900 units built in various specifications. A significant facelift was completed in 1999. The Diablo was replaced by the Murcielago, and it is part of a lineage of range-topping supercars that also includes the Miura and the Aventador.
