Lamborghini manufactured the Diablo from 1990 to 2001. The 1996 Lamborghini Diablo isn’t too different than the other model years. But the 1996 Lamborghini is the one featured in the video we are sharing.
The Diablo set the stage for other supercars. This was because it was the first production Lamborghini with a top speed of over 200 miles per hour.
The V12 that produces the incredible sound is 5,707 cc (5.7 L; 348.3 cu in) and uses dual overhead cams with 4 valves per cylinder and computer-controlled multi-point fuel injection.
The sound of the V12 is pure and amazing. If you ask us, it’s one of the best sounding cars ever.
The Diablo SV, like the one featured in the video below, was introduced in 1995 and offered a slight power increase.

From Road & Track:
“Lamborghini participated in Formula 1 in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but its first true factory race car came in the form of a Diablo, the SVR. A handful were built for a one make series starting in 1996, and this is one of them. It sounds wonderful.
Because it’s a race car, the V12 mounted behind the cabin doesn’t have any catalytic converters, resonators, or mufflers to keep it from sounding as ferocious as possible. It’s truly the Diablo’s sound at its finest. Listen for yourself.”
