Profile

With 550bhp to handle, the 209mph Diablo VT (Viscous Traction) must be thankful for its 4 wheel drive system. If the rear wheels begin to break traction, up to 30\% of drive is sent to the front wheels via a centre differential. Speed sensitive power steering and adjustable suspension dampers were improvements over the standard model.

2000 saw new owners Audi rework the VT with a new 6 litre engine, gorgeous integrated bodywork and a total interior makeover making this the most attractive Diablo of all. Production ceased in late 2001 to open the way for Lamborghini's new flagship the Murcielago.
