1997 Lamborghini Diablo Evolution GT1

The Evolution GT1 was in fact the first complete restyling of the Diablo, every body panel was redesigned or replaced by a new one, but also the engine compartment was worked over, he redesigned the intakes, optimized the exhaust manifold and reprogrammed the electronic fuel injection system.

Again he mounted four exhaust pipes centrally at the rear, but this time the exhaust used were racing type ones, which sounded really nice when driving, a very low growling sound was made at idle, which could rise to a high pitched one at full throttle, every gear change was followed by four 30 cm flames blowing out of these pipes, caused by the two turbo’s mounted on the engine.
