Lamborghini Diablo (1990-2001)

If you’re familiar with our website then you already know that we’re passionate about supercars. We often like to journey back in time to take a look back at a vehicle from the past. The time has come for us to take a look at another intriguing supercar from the past: Lamborghini Diablo.

Lamborghini has produced some fantastic examples of great sports cars throughout the years. The brand is renowned for the level of detail its cars feature and the power they possess.

Today, we are going to focus on the Lamborghini Diablo. Launched in 1990, the vehicle was a high-performance mid-engined coupe that was capable of reaching a top speed in excess of 200 mph (320 km/h). More tehnical detailes about Diablo.

Upon introduction, the vehicle came with a 5.7-litre (348 cu in) 48-valve Lamborghini V8 engine. It was capable of producing 499 PS (367 kW; 492 hp). It had a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h).

Design-wise, the Lamborghini Diablo features a number of elements for which the brand is recognised for. The shape of the vehicle is reminiscent, to some extent, of earlier Lamborghini models, however it was unique enough to stand out.

Various different versions of the Lamborghini Diablo were introduced during its production run, with the first being the Diablo VT. Introduced in 1993, the Diablo VT differed from the Diablo in many ways, one of which being the addition of all wheel drive. The vehicle also became more powerful, however for the most part it remained the same.

The Diablo SE30 and SE30 Jota were the next to be introduced in 1994. They were built to commemorate Lamborghini’s 30th anniversary. The vehicles were a lot more powerful than the original Diablo. Many changes could be seen in the designs as well.

Lamborghini Diablo SV and Diablo VT Roadster were next to be launched with the latter being the last new version to be introduced.

Although it’s not the best Lamborghini ever made, the Diablo was a great vehicle that people enjoy to this day. It’s a great example of a vehicle built purely for fun rather than functionality.

Lotus Elite – classic with style

Lotus has a long history of naming its vehicles with words starting with the letter “E”. The Lotus Elite follows that trend however the name refers to two different production vehicles and a more recent production car. Today we’re going to take a look back at the cars using the Elite name to learn more about them. More about Lotus Elite: here

The first ever vehicle to use the name was the 1958 Lotus Elite Type 14. The two-seater sports coupe remained in production for 5 years and it experienced moderate success along the way. The vehicle made its debut in 1957, a year prior to it going into production. A highly innovative fibreglass monocoque construction made the vehicle unique, which is why it stood out among its rivals. It included a 1.2-litre Coventry Climax Straight-4 75-105 hp engine and it was capable of reaching a top speed of 111.8 mph (179.9 km/h). Around 1040 units were produced however different sources indicate different numbers.

The next production car to use the name Elite was introduced in 1974. The Lotus Elite Type 75 was very different to the Type 14. Its design didn’t resemble the previous vehicle at all and the two cars had very little in common. The Type 75 was still a sports car, which is no surprise considering that’s what the brand is known for. It included a 2.0-litre l4 engine and was capable of reaching a top speed of around 125 mph. The vehicle remained in production until 1982 before it was discontinued.

In 2010, a concept car was exhibited by the brand at the Paris Motor Show. The brand brought back the “Elite” name with a production version planned, however in 2012 the project was cancelled for unknown reasons. The Elite concept sported very modern styling, which made it stand out. It had slight resemblance to certain other Lotus vehicles on the market at the time and it was rather powerful. It included a 5.0-litre V8 engine sourced from Lexus and it was capable of reaching a top speed of 315 km/h.

We’re certain it’s not the last we’ve seen of the Elite and we’re hoping that eventually the Elite concept will find its way into production. If not we’re very much looking forward to seeing an all-new vehicle bearing the Elite name.

Aston Martin Bulldog – classic beast

Today, we are going to take a look back at a vehicle produced back in late 1970’s – Aston Martin Bulldog.

Unfortunately, not every single vehicle can enter production. As much as we would love to see all out favourite concept cars and one-off vehicles go into production, that’s simply impossible. Certain concept cars are merely produced to showcase the latest car technologies whereas others are built by brands in order to experiment with ideas that are too unique for production vehicles.

Ever since vehicles first emerged, concept cars have played an important role in the industry. Used by manufacturers to introduce new ideas and experiment with unique concept, we are so used to seeing them now, we don’t even give them that much thought.

The Aston Martin Bulldog was built by the brand in 1979 and was originally intended to enter production, with a limited run of about 25 units planned. Those plans fell through however and only one Bulldog was ever produced.

What made the Aston Martin Bulldog unique was its unusual, trapezium-like, shape. It featured gull-wing doors and five hidden headlight, which added to the vehicle’s unusual appearance.

Powered by a 5.3-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, the vehicle was capable of reaching a top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h).

Before the Aston Martin Bulldog could enter production, the plans were cancelled by the brand and the one-off vehicle was sold off to an unknown American highest bidder for £130,000 however recently it has been offered for sale in Britain.

Overall, the Bulldog was a great example of a one-off vehicle done right and it’s a real shame that it never made it into production.

Aston Martin continues to manufacture fantastic vehicles today and with no signs of slowing down, it’s probably going to stick around for years to come.

Lamborghini Countach

It’s nearly impossible to tell which supercar is the best. So many fantastic and unique vehicles have been produced over the years that it’s hard to pick just a single one. Today, we are going to look at the 1971 Lamborghini Countach. First introduced at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show, the vehicle revolutionised the sports car and raised the bar for all its competitors. More about Lamborghini Countach here

The Countach’s design completely reinvented the sports car and pioneered the sharply angled, wedge-shaped look, which to this day remains popular in the world of sports cars.

Lamborghini Countach proved popular with car buyers selling 2,049 units between 1971 and 1990.

Not only was the Countach fun to look at but it was also rather fun to drive. It included the Lamborghini Miura’s 4-liter engine and was capable of reaching a top speed of around 180 mph (290 km/h).

A number of different models of the Countach were introduced during its 19 year production run including the 25th Anniversary Countach.

Built to commemorate the company’s 25th anniversary, the vehicle featured some minor restyling. Although it featured elements that the Countach was already known for, it included a number of upgrades. It remained in production for 2 years, between 1988 and 1990, and 658 units were produced.

United States was Lamborghini Countach’s biggest market, which is why most of the vehicles were sold there. Around 1985, the US model of the Countach came with a price tag of about $100,000. Several upgrades were available such as a sound system and an aerodynamic spoiler however both of which would set you back from $5000 to $7000.

Is Lamborghini Countach the best sports car ever produced? Perhaps not however it’s an extremely fun vehicle that will forever remain part of Lamborghini’s history.
