History of the Lamborghini Diablo
The Lamborghini Diablo is a high-performance mid-engine sports car manufactured by the Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1990 and 2001. It is the first production Lamborghini capable of exceeding 200 miles per hour. Diablo is a Spanish word that signifies "devil." Lamborghini began development on what was codenamed Project 132 in June 1985 as a replacement for the Countach, Lamborghini's then top tier sports vehicle, at a period when the firm was financed by the Swiss-based brothers Jean Claude and Patrick Mimran. According to the brief, the new car's maximum speed must reach at least 196 mph.
Marcello Gandini, who designed the car's two predecessors, was commissioned to create the Diablo. When Chrysler purchased the company in 1987, funding the company to complete the Diablo's development, they were unsatisfied with Gandini's designs and appointed its design team in Detroit to undertake a third extensive redesign, smoothing out the infamous sharp edges and corners of Gandini's original design and leaving him famously disappointed. In fact, Gandini was so dissatisfied with the "softened" form that he subsequently realised the original design it in the Cizeta-Moroder V16T. The new automobile was dubbed Diablo, continuing Lamborghini's history of naming its vehicles after fighting bull breeds. The car was dubbed 'Diablo' after a fearsome bull bred by the Duke of Veragua in the nineteenth century.
