Ronald Affolteris the owner of a respected Lamborghini dealership, but he also likes to customize cars. One of them unveiled in 1998 was the Diablo Evolution GT1. He completely redesigned the car, including a new front and rear bumper, and changing just about everything that could be changed.

Exterior modifications are extensive, with every body panel being modified or replaced. Pop-up headlights were removed and fixed ones took their place. A custom wing has been added and side intakes were enlarged, and twin-ducts feed air to the engine.

The Affolter Diablo Evolution GT1 is powered by a twin-turbo V12 engine that delivers 630 hp. The GT1 is a RWD driven car, with Mid-Engine engine location. The V12 engine is mated with a a 5-Speed Manual transmission.

The supercar is capable of making the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 3.5 seconds and can hit a top speed of 217 mph.

The GT1 was built only on demand at half the price of a McLaren F1, but with four small turbo’s mounted giving the same power as the F1, and to make things even better, Affolter even built an Evolution GT1 Roadster edition, open top motering with even more exotic looks than the standard Lamborghini Roadster.

Actually, they won back in 1989 in the legendary Sauber C9. But that’s only because they sourced the engine and not the car lol.

I think anything short of going up against the best in Sportscar racing would be a grave marketing mistake for Lexus. It would be better to lose to the likes of Ferrari for a few years while the car is getting dialed in then have a chance to lose to a GT-R or Vette or even a 911.

though this Lamborghini Diablo is an old model, it still looks good.
