Profile

While retaining the general shape of the Countach, its successor the Diablo offered smoother curves and more integrated ducting and spoilers. The Gandini design (who else!) was also larger and heavier than its predecessor but a 55% increase in torque and power hike up to nearly 500bhp ensured that performance remained spectacular. Indeed, the Diablo laid claim to the title of world's fastest production car with a verified top speed of over 202mph.

Fuel injection was adopted incorporating twin catalytic converters. A square section chassis replaced to Countach's complex tubular construction and interior cabin space was improved to make everyday use a more practical proposition.
