Cleanup needed [ edit ]

Ditto, I’m working hard on this. P924 CarreraGTS (talk ) 16:49, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

I have little interest in this subject, but this article is in need of spelling and punctuation help. Russell 18:32, 15 September 2005 (UTC)

Added by someone else: I changed the description of the Millenium Roadsters. It said they were rear wheel drive, I have owned a VT all wheel drive Millenium Roadster. The carbon fiber spoiler was optional and is only present on a few, select Millenium roadsters.

It says the diablo was AWD. This isn’t true is it? I know the later models were RWD and can’t imagine the eralier ones as AWD. I don’t want to edit it as I am not 100% sure (more into small cars than exotics), and I don’t have an account – don’t want my IP blocked —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs ) 6 December 2006

Posted by someone else from here on (I couldn’t figure out how to make my own post, sorry!): Its actually generally the later Diablos that weren’t RWD since Audi took over in 1996. Although the VT has always been AWD/4WD (I have no idea what the difference is if there is one!) and perhaps the only AWD/4WD Diablo (I’m not sure!) Audi began to produce more models of VT (i.e. the VT 6.0, VT 6.0 SE and the VT Millenium Roadster as well as the previously made VT and VT Roadster) because of their stupid beliefs about sensible 4WD being better than the more dangerous yet obviously more thrilling RWD mainly due to the danger factor!

Now all Lamborghinis made are AWD/4WD however and that’s thanks to Audi who have Audified the entire Lamborghini model range in probably every way! Oh well, at least Lamborghini were able to produce the Diablo SE30 Jota before it all went wrong.

U.S. Market Variations [ edit ]

I think we might want to point out that Diablo models were somewhat different in the United States vs. Rest of World. Aside from the cosmetic differences, not all models (like the GT) reached American shores. As far as I know (and correct me if I’m wrong), the U.S. model list looked like this (years are MODEL YEARS):

1991-1993: Diablo (RWD coupe only)

1994: Diablo SE coupe, VT coupe

1995: Diablo VT coupe only

1996: Diablo VT coupe, VT Roadster

1997: Diablo VT Roadster only

1998: Diablo SV coupe, SV Monterey coupe, VT Roadster

1999: Diablo VT Roadster (Mk 2), SV coupe (Mk 2), MOMO Roadster (12 built), Alpine VT coupe (12 built)

2000: Diablo Millennium Roadster, 6.0 VT??

2001: Diablo 6.0 VT only

Sound right? Sacxpert 15:42, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

If you can find some kind of reference to corroborate that list there’s no reason why it shouldn’t go into the article. User:Jaganath 18:18, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I’m not sure on the year but there was a VTTT Package as well (VT Twin Turbo) only 6 or 7 were originally built more info here:

Images [ edit ]

I want to a car show todaay, and I added about four or five images I created of Diablo variants. Karrmann 18:55, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Reply: Stop editing this page when you do not have any knowledge about this car. Stop posting poor quality photos and also stop posting wrong info on the cars!

Very poor [ edit ]

This page is of a very poor quality in my opinion. It needs definitely some clean up. There are really a lot of mistakes in it and it looks terrible.

I will make some major changes in a couple of weeks when I have time. DiabloSE30

until someone have provided a better rear shot of the Diablo, I will continue of posting the picture. The picture gives the viewers of a picture of what the Diablo’s rear looks like. and please sign your name. Jpogi 14:00, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

And you need to stop adding fair use images to this article. There are pleanty free use images of the Diablo readilly available, so a fair use image is unacceptiable. And the images are not poor, they adquitely show the details of the cars appearance.

Keep in mind that on WIkipedia, images are only supposed to show a cars appearance, they are not supposed to make the car look good nor bad. Karrmann 14:14, 23 June 2007 (UTC) The pictures provides the readers of the different Diablos (and of different colors) that were released; whether the picture are of good quality or not. Jpogi 14:29, 23 June 2007 (UTC) The pictures are of adiquete quality.

He must think that any image that doesn’t glorify the car is poor quality. Karrmann 14:51, 23 June 2007 (UTC) I’ll go with karrmann in keeping the pictures. I’m also thinking of putting back the gallery.

I’ll make sure that everytime that se30 opens this article, he’ll/she’ll find out that the pictures are still there. Jpogi 15:34, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Copyright violation? [ edit ]

The current text on the Diablo GTR is word for word taken from and seems to come from a Lamborghini press kit. Is this a copyright violation, then, or can one assume that a text handed out to the press for the express purpose of publication falls under GDFL regulations? — At least it´s bad style by the author to quote without giving the source. –328cia (talk ) 21:01, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

100% agreed. sadly, MOST of this entire page was copy and pasted from various sources. Maybe not quite word for word, but using copy and paste and then altering a few words is still plagiarism by most accounts. I have rewritten pretty much the entire page in a precis format so I think that directly lifted info should no longer be an issue. CheersP924 CarreraGTS (talk ) 15:11, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

rubbish infomation [ edit ]

The Diablo wasn’t the first car to go over the 200mph barrier. The Ferrari F40 went 201mph which IS faster 200mph. The Diablo went 202.33mph according to the American car magazine ‘Road and Track’ which tested the original car.

This page is rubbish and so is the information.

Merger Proposal (Closed) [ edit ]

Article merged: See old talk-page here

Page has been merged, cleanup is underway.P924 CarreraGTS (talk ) 17:09, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

I have proposed to merge the article Lamborghini Diablo GT with this article.

The reasoning is simple: The Diablo GT is the only Diablo variant with its own page, and there is simply no need for that. It doesn’t even have a photograph. This page should be an inclusive description of all Diablo variants of significance. P924 CarreraGTS (talk ) 16:49, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Review [ edit ]

I believe I have completed my exhaustive re-working of this page. It was undeniably bad to begin with, containing a great deal of spurious information, fragments and poorly written sentences, and serious amounts of direct-lift plagiarism, which I consider to be a copyright violation. I added a lot of omitted information, tailored the page to a universal format, carefully converted units as appropriate, and added some informative tables. Proper citations have been done throughout the article.

I realize, fully, that I used a GREAT deal of information from, which might seem like a single-source monopoly that could cause false information, but there are really not a lot of reputable web sources on this subject. I would have to hit the books in order to refine it any further, as the other sites I visited were just as poor as this article was to begin with.

I will be keeping a close eye on this page to monitor vandalism or more inaccurate additions. Finally, I think that this article may now be eligible for a better than B-class rating.

1999-2001 Diablo a second generation or facelift? [ edit ]

Is the 1999-2001 Diablo using the same floorpan as the 1990-1998 Diablo? If yes, it’s a facelift, but if no, it could be second generation. WKB (talk here /This is not Facebook nor Malaysia ) 00:37, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Fastest in the world claim. [ edit ]
