    I'd like to see how the Diablo body work changed each year. (and inbetween years)

    Can we find the best photos of Diablos from 1991-2001 and line them all up so we can see how the style changed?

    ( I'd like to get all the photos from a front side view. Then I can paste all into one master photo )

    Here's a cool photo for a 98 SV Monterey Edition SV

    I always thought the 91-92 was the best looking.

    But now, I think I'm going to find all the photos and see what really happened over the years.

    Did much change from 91-94 to the body style?

    "Finally in 1993, after 3 years of the 2WD Diablo production, Automobili Lamborghini SpA presented the next step in Italian super cars.
    The Diablo VT, a four-wheel drive evolution of the Diablo, well not exactly, the VT stood for 'Viscous Traction', and meant that part of the power could be moved to the front wheels, when the rear ones lost their grip."

    It is a 93 in Europe, maybe it is a 94 model when it came in the USA?

    I started this project to see changes in style of the body.

    It looks like they only changed 3 things in the body work...from 91-01

    - Hood Air Scoops
    - Front Bumper
    - and headlights

    94 vt was first vt in USA. I had one of the first cars, I remember it well. Traded my 93 on it.

    Just checked. Can't find a Euro 93VT either. They certainly "presented" it in 93, but didn't sell any that were 93's that I can find, definately not in the U.S.A. Also, keep in mind that Lambocars.com site is filled with errors on Diablos. A very good site overall, but more for the pics than accuracy.

    The lower side inlets changed as well. Early on they had the single hole with the black grills in it, then the 3 vent, and then finally a gaping single hole. Sorry I don't know the technical terms, just what I noticed.
