Re: Lamborghini Diablo WANNABE

Discussion in '1995 Cizeta-Moroder V16T' started by Lone Star, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. Hey, you're mistaken. This car was the original Diablo prototype. The information on this web page is wrong too. This car came out in 1988, not 1995. After being purchased by Chrysler, Lamborghini was looking for the next Countach. Three guys made a car, and presented it. Lamborghini bought the design from Claudio Zampolli, Gorgio Moroder,and Marcello Ganidni, its creators. Check out the pictures of the early '80s prototypes I left you. Isn't it curious how these look like the Cizeta Moroder? Or how this car came out two years before the Diablo? Now, this may be a Cizeta made in '95, but they first came out in 1988. Anyway, this car is faster, stronger, and more exclusive than the Diablo. Don't get me wrong, I love Diablos, but this car came first. I just thought you should know before making assumptions. <!-- Signature -->

    You absoloute fool! I feel so sorry for your mother and father, wasting all that time sending you to school and you still don't pay attention to ANYTHING!! That guy asked if you can read because if you actually did read the information about this car you would find out that this is a Lamborghini Diablo, but modified by another company. I.E. Its based on a Diablo!God damn it you are thick headed. Very sad to see people as dumb as you on these forums, plus, no-one cares about a tatoo on your ugly ass that says "more cushin for the pushin" You are the one wasting your time writing stupid replies to a comment on your stupid behaviour. Just don't bother.<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. To be specific...the Diablo is based on the V16T, not the other way around. This car came first.
     
  5. I must agree with Lone Star and F50 driver. The Cizeta V16t came before the Diablo, not the other way around. You should read up on the history. Lamborghini only gets credit because the design was sold to them.

  7. sorry, i must point out that the creator of this thread is TOTALLY wrong.

    the fact of the matter is, the Diablo is a Cizeta-Moroder wannabe.

    the Cizeta-Moroder came out first.......... so go figure<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Marcello Gandini designed the Countach, Countach S, this car, and the Diablo (in that order). The Diablo shows alot of Chrysler influence because they owned Lamborghini at the time. This is what the Diablo would've looked like if Chrysler hadn't modified it.<!-- Signature -->

    This car came out in 1988. The Diablo is a modification of this. It says so on this website, but I knew that back in the 80s.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. LAMBOGT1, are you stupid or something? The guy that built this is famous for his work on the diablo. So when you acn grow up and read then come back and post your bullshit replys.
     
  12. **** your dumb he Cizeta-Moroder V16T came first dip shit it was designed in 1988.<!-- Signature -->

  14. The story of the Cizeta and Diablo is this (I believe):

    Lambo asked Marcello Gandini to submit a design proposal for the Diablo in 1987. He submitted the design and a prototype was built. This car looked very similar to the Cizeta, but with different tail lights, headlights and doors. Chrysler bought Lambo around this time and said they wanted lots of things changing. Lambo went about redesigning the car, and Marcello got a bit p!ssed off. In 1987 ex lambo engineer Claudio Zampolli said that the wanted to build a limited supercar with a V16.

    Marcello Gandini showed him the existing Diablo proposal and Zampolli said he would use that. This was good for Gandini - because his true vision of the Countach replacement would be built, and good for Zampolli because it wasn't going to cost too much. The engine for the V16 was derived from 2 Lamborghini V8 of 3 litre joined together - though with all the work that went into it, it is really a bespoke engine.

    By 1988 the white Cizeta show car was built (that is the one with the Testarossa style air intakes)
    It took a further 3-4 year before the production cars were made, of which I believe between 9 and 12 were built before the company closed.
     
  15. It's not a wannabe. It's design is from '88, but to me it looks like a ferrari 355, and a lamborghini diablo. BUT I WISH IT LOOKED LIK A 355 and a Muria...
     
  16. Ravij, you did an excellent job explaining that. The post that I just edited to put this in said that there was no connection between the Diablo and this, besides the designers. As that, in a way, is right, you stated this story in a much more appropriate way.
     
  17. Re: This is a gay rip-off of the prowler

    Don't try to save face now dumb-ass. It's too late. Everybody proved you wrong, and you look like the dumb-#$%# you are.
     
  18. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA wow lambo GT1 sure made a fool of himself!!
     
  19. Re: This is a gay rip-off of the prowler

    lol
     
  20. His point us YOUR riting stupid replys, if you had read the article, this was designed by the same people who did the diablo. You know what fukk you i see so much ignorant little fukks like you it pisses me off.
     
  21. even though it does resemble a Lamborghini Diablo, It is much faster and I would take one of these over a Diablo.
     
  22. Looks just like a Diablo.
     
  23. The story of this car has already been laid out in this forum so I won't waste my time retelling the whole thing. Marcello Gandini First designed the Miura back in the day which was really the first major mid-engine supercar. After that Lamborghini called on him onbce again to design to design the predecessor of the Miura, the Countach. After that Gandini dropped out of the supercar league for a while and did work for several companies around Europe. Then when the chance to design the Cizeta came along, he submitted a design. Immediately after that he submitted a design to Lamborghini for the Diablo.
    The Cizeta is a limited edition car and the V16 is basically two V8s welded together (though I don't recall from which company). The design looks the same because they were designed at trhe same time by the same man, end of story (and this thread hopefully).
     
  24. That it is no matter how much bigger its engine is
