As common a sight on bedroom walls in the 90s as you could hope to find - when it wasn’t jostling for poster space with Jet and Wolf from Gladiators and the Spice Girls - the Lamborghini Diablo was the Italian marque’s prime poster boy of supercars.
First publicly unveiled at the very start of the decade in January 1990, following five years of intensive development by their design and engineering teams, this supercharged model went on to clock up just over 10 years in production, its last model coming in 2001.
As with all Lamborghini models, it’s name derives from a Spanish fighting bull. In the case of the Diablo, it’s named after the bull owned by the Duke of Veragua, who famously fought a battle against El Chicorro in the summer of 1869.
It’s quite fitting that this car should be named after such lordly heritage, for it is nothing less than a majestic beast to drive. Kitted out with computer controlled fuel injection and a rear wheel drive, it’s mid mounted, 5.7 litre V12 powers out an awe inspiring 550 bhp. With this, it blisters from 0 - 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, with top speeds in excess of 211 mph.
