    wat do you mean 20 extra hp. the original diablo has 500 something. you forget two banks of cylinder quad turob basically means sequential twin turbo. its probably only spiting out 4psi or so. i wish they would regear this *****. it would go fasterl not to say that it already isn't. give it a sixth or seventh gear. the 0 rpm is wrong obviously. o yah get rid of the awd too. i like diablos A LOT but those are just two things i dont like.

    In 1997 Roland Affolter showed his new Diablo recreation, the Diablo Evolution GT1.
    This time he completely redesigned the car, not only mounting a new front and rear bumper, but changing just about everything he missed the first time.
    Roland Affolter could already install an electrically powered roof for the Roadster, mount Carbon Fibre panels in the interior, matching the leather of the upholstery, and tinted in the mass, so no discoloring could happen. Another nice touch was the option of opening the doors, not just unlocking but really opening, the doors and starting the engine by remote control. But also installing a supercharger or even a twin-turbo configuration in the engine bay of the Diablo, pumping out up to 630 Bhp, because of the exquisite workmanship and finish of his cars, Affolter has a very close and unique relationship with Automobili Lamborghini in Sant'Agata, Italy. Rumors have gone round that the official Diablo GT2 was in fact designed by Roland Affolter.
    The Evolution GT1 was in fact the first complete restyling of the Diablo, every body panel was redesigned or just 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 are racing type ones, who sounded real 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.
    The basic styling of the Diablo was still recognizable, but that's it, the front was again completely redesigned, he removed the pop-up headlights and mounted an air-intake on the front hood, doubling as a down force spoiler. Then he enlarged the front track by 7 cm so the front wings could be enlarged with another 11 cm. The external rear view mirrors were incorporated into these front wings and were no longer attached to the swing up doors. However probably the biggest work were the sides of the car, the side air-intakes were enlarged, but mounting them caused cutting a piece from the door and restyling the rear wheel arches, while he was already working on these body parts, he also replaced and moved the fuel nozzle by a racing type unit, which he placed just in front of the upper rear air intake.
    By the way, the aluminium roof panel was replaced with a tinted glass panel, giving the optical illusion that the front windscreen runs further into the roof and stops only just before the two roof mounted air intakes. This glass panel does look a little like the one on the Cala prototype.
    Just as on his previous Diablo's, the rear bumper is replaced by a fully integrated one, showing the four central mounted exhausts and using a honeycomb grille with Diablo GT1 lettering. The rear light were again set in Carbon Fibre as is the part between them, covering the two lights under it. The same design was used for the adjustable carbon fibre rear wing.
    But this time Affolter also attacked the interior of the car, on this yellow super car, he mounted a two-tone leather interior using black over yellow, showing the raging bull on the head rests. The dashboard was completely redesigned, integrating the passenger airbag and using the nicest Carbon Fibre available, a full multimedia system was built into the dash, a full Alpine HiFi installation with CD-changer and Sub-woofer using multiple amplifiers, a GPS system, a color TV set and a camera system for backing up was also available.
    This GT1 was built only on demand at half the price of a McLaren F1, but with four small turbo's mounted giving the same power as the F1

    Engine : V-12 Twin-turbo (a quad-turbo version was also available
    Max. Power : 630 Bhp (650 Bhp on the quad-turbo version)
    Front track : 1960 mm
    Rear track : 2020 mm

    Wheels front : 10,5 x 18 inch Rear : 13,5 x 18 inch three-piece rims
    Tires front : 285/30 ZR 18 Rear : 335/30 ZR 18 Pirelli P Zero's

    Max. Speed : 345 Km/h.
    0 - 100 Km/h. : 3,5 sec.

    Wow. Isn't that neat.<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
