Introduced in 1993 the all wheel drive system was adapted from the LM002 and allows up to 25% of the car’s power to be sent to the front wheels improving handling significantly over the rear drive version. The Diablo was produced between 1990 and 2001. During this period, Lamborghini introduced several variations of the Diablo concept, the first being the Diablo VT (Visco Traction), which featured an all-wheel drive. The Lamborghini bosses had wished for a maximum speed of at least 320 kph, and the engineers made this wish come true: With a top speed of 325 kph and an acceleration from 0-100 in 4.5 seconds the Diablo claimed the pole position in the super sports cars segment! Powered by a newly developed V12 engine. Four valves per cylinder, a computer controlled multi-point fuel injection and a displacement of 5.7 liters helped produce a maximum of 492 HP.
