Lamborghini Diablo

Today I would like to present you one of my favourite cars, Lamborghini Diablo.

The Lamborghini Diablo is a high-performance mid-engined sports car that was built by Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1990 and 2001. It was the first Lamborghini capable of attaining a top speed in excess of 200 miles per hour (320km/h). After the end of this production run in 2001, the Diablo was replaced by the Lamborghini Murcielago. (from Wikipedia)

There were two generations of Lamborghini Diablo.
Firts generation (1990-1998):
-Diablo

-Diablo VT
-Diablo SE30 and SE30 Jota
-Diablo SV (my favourite :) )

-Diablo VT Roadster
Second generation (1998-2001)
-Diablo SV (1999)
-Diablo VT and VT Roadster (1999)
-Diablo GT
-Diablo VT 6.0 and VT 6.0 SE

There were two engines: 5.7L V12 and 6.0L V12. Both of them were with 5-speed manual transmission. 5.7L engine has 499HP and 580Nm, 6.0 engine has 550HP and 620Nm. Achievements are very similar:
5.7L:

acceleration 0-100km/h: 4.1s
v-max: 326km/h
6.0L:
acceleration 0-100km/h: 3.9s
v-max: 335km/h
