The Lamborghini NOMAD Diablo GT-1 '00 is a JGTC racing car first appeared in the NTSC-J version of Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec. It also appears in Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Turismo 6. This car marks the debut of Lamborghini in the Gran Turismo series.

The car appears to be the #88, driven by Naohiro Furuya and Tsuyoshi Takahashi, who failed to score a point and was therefore unclassified in the 2000 JGTC championship.

DescriptionEdit

"A delight for fans with its distinctive exhaust tone and the highest horsepower in its class."


It is unusual for an evolution model of this kind to be initiated through Japanese motorsports, but the "Diablo Corsa" of which only three were specially built, were made specially to participate in the 1995 JGTC. In order to be reincarnated as a GT machine, various equipment were removed for thorough weight reduction, and so began the competition career of the "Nomad Diablo".

Because the regulations of the JGTC were much more flexible and allowed a wider range of modifications in comparison to the FIA-GT, the Diablo underwent a significant transformation every year. In the second year of 1996, the front section was fully modified to give it a wider tread and a new front suspension, in order to reduce understeer and front tire wear. Thereafter the power train was mounted lower and the cooling system was also revised entirely. The car continued to receive mechanical updates to the newest technology, and by 2000, it was in its final, ultimate form.

With drivers Naohiro Furuya and Takahashi Tsuyoshi at the wheel, Nomad Diablo in this year showed performance by rivaling the 3 major works teams in Japan. The transmission was a Hewland 6 speed sequential, and the V12 inherited from the Countach was increased to 6L in displacement. Though its power was limited to 542 using restrictors, actually just below the commercial model, it still had the highest power in the GT500 class, and the high pitched exhaust note of the Lamborghini V12 attracted many fans.
