Lamborghini Diablo Jota Edition 30

This is not a car you will see every day. It’s extremely rare, and only 150 cars were made. It is a Lamborghini Diablo Jota Edition 30. This absolutely brutal Lamborghini, designed by maestro Marcello Gandini had amazing performance and design. Especially in this dark purple paintwork. It still stunning, and a technical achievement for Automobili Lamborghini.

It’s a large car, 4,5 meters in length and very wide. But it is not as heavy as you might think, it actually only weighs 1450 kilo. Compare this to the little Mercedes SLK that is 50 kilos heavier.

The Lamborghini Diablo Jota packs a mighty punch from the fantastic mid mounted 5,7 liter V12 engine. The power is immersive, 595 horsepower is waiting to be released when the driver stomps the gas pedal. It has torque to pull a train (well, 639 Nm to be exactly) and the full 595 horses sets free at 7300 rp/m. The sound is glorious, and when the car accelerated hard, I almost had trouble holding the camera steady.

The sprint to 100 km/h takes just 3,9 seconds. That’s fast even today. In 1995 the Lamborghini Diablo Jota ED30 was ludicrously fast. Top speed is crazy, 340 km/h (211 mph/h) and 0-1000 m takes just 20,1 seconds.

This red Ferrari F50 is quite a masterpiece. The hottest supercar you could buy in 1995. It’s basically a F1 car for the street. The Ferrari F50 is sleek and fast, and in the back rests a mighty power plant. The 4,7 liter 12 cylinder bundle of joy produces a staggering 515 horsepower. These prancing horses are ready and available at 8000 rp/m, resulting in very impressive performance.

With the pedal to the metal the F50 eagerly will reach a top speed of 325 km/h. amazingly fast back in 1995. It accelerated like a spaceship, 0-100 km/h took just 3,7 seconds. Ferrari made just 349 of these, making it a very rare car and a true collector’s item.

The beautiful Ferrari 458 Italia…

This is so perfect. Red italian supercar with golden wheels soaking in the sun at a trackday. Photo by Johan Åhlund

It’s painted in Rosso Scuderia with very nice golden diamond rims and has lots of options. The interior is a dream in black alcantara racing seats with red stitching and red seatbelts. And it moves too, and sounds terrific.

Ferrari 458 Italia looks just amazing in Rosso Scuderia

The V8 delivers 570 bhp @ 9000 r/pm, has 540 Nm of torque @ 6000 r/pm and the DCT double clutch gearbox its fast. 0-100 km/h at 3,4 seconds, and flat out it will reach 325 km/h.

I took this picture and several others at the Autoropa Racing Day at Mantorp Park last year, and I will soon publish some other nice Italian cars from that event. Perhaps of this car when it’s flat out on the track.
