Real perfromance

Discussion in '1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV' started by Christianmc, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. '99 Diablo SV, 530 hp

    0-60 mph: 4.0 seconds (EVO)
    0-100 mph: na?
    1/4 mile: 12.0 seconds
    top speed: 207 mph (EVO); with short 5th gear ratio probably 199 mph.

    Can someone give me the full test results for Diablo SV '99 for Quattroroute? (0-100 kmh, 0-160 kmh, 0-200 kmh, 0-400m, 1 km, top speed, etc.?)

    If someone has EVO's test results or any other I would also like to have it. Thank you!

    Yes, its certainly got impressive numbers... And that color is so beautiful. The silver is immaculate.<!-- Signature -->

    Now I have more accurate information from the test of the '99 Diablo SV!! The test is by Quattroroute with the "short ratio" (can do 55 mph in 1st gear @ 7500 rpm):

    0-62 mph: 4.4s
    0-124 mph: 12,4s
    1/4 mile: 12.0s @ 121.7 mph (196 kmh)
    1000m: 21.35 seconds @ 157 mph (252/253km/h)
    Top speed: 193 mph with wing/ 195 mph+ without wing (310/315 kmh+)

    With medium ratio (62 mph @7500 rpm in 1st gear), it is approx:

    0-62 mph: approx 4.6 seconds (but 0-60 mph approx 3.8 seconds because of gear change)
    0-124 mph: approx 12.8 seconds
    1/4 mile: 12.1/12.2 seconds @ 120/121 mph (194/195 kmh)
    1000m: 21.6 seconds @ 155/156 mph (250/251 kmh)
    Top speed: 202 mph with wing/205 mph without (325/330 kmh)

    With long ratio (68 mph in 1st gear @7500 rpm), it is approx:

    0-62 mph: approx 4.1 seconds (0-60 mph 4.0 seconds tested by EVO)
    0-124 mph: approx 13.2 seconds
    1/4 mile: 12.3/12.4 seconds @ 119/120 mph (192/193 kmh)
    1000m: 21. 9 seconds @ 154/155 mph (248/250 kmh )
    Top speed: 205 mph with wing/208 mph without (330/335 kmh)

    I know - its gear ratio's are quite impressive... but if you want to go 55mph+ in 1st gear, isnt that pushing the redline a bit? I don't think its that healthy for the car.<!-- Signature -->
  5. Re: Real perfromance

    It is perfectly fine for the Diablo to do 7500 rpm in 1st gear. It is meant to be pushed, and in fact helps the engine to be broken in faster. Once the engine is broken in, it will have faster results than these tests!!

    55 mph in 1st gear is for short ratio; with long ratio, it is possible to do 68 mph in 1st. This gives it a slightly better 0-60 mph time because it does not have to change gears like short ratio. But if you see the test, short ratio is faster acceleration, despite worse 0-60 time.
