Lamborghini Diablo GT
THE V12 is upped to 5.7 litres initially and fitted with four-valve heads and multipoint fuel injection. Final cars boosted to 6.0 litres as Audi prepared to launch Murcielago. Four-wheel drive from 1993. Chassis still a steel spaceframe mounting doublewishbone coil spring suspension with front and rear anti-roll bars like Countach, but switches from round to square tubes for simpler construction, and high-strength steel is added to the cockpit. Bicep-busting unassisted steering until ’93. Aluminium and composite body based on another Gandini design but was softened at new boss Chrysler’s insistence by American stylist Tom Gale, later of Plymouth Prowler and Dodge Viper fame.
