The Diablo collection made the Caballero much more special despite alarming. The design team included an almost satanic-looking demon-flame hood picture as large as the Trans Am’s screaming chicken. The Diablo name were in big missives along the doors and an equaling adornment followed the debased section of the body.
Under the hood, customers could have a 95-hp V-6, a 145-hp 5.0-liter V-8, or a 170-hp 5.7-liter V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor. Each motor could be united with a manual or an automatic transmission. So a Diablo running a 350-cubic-inch V-8 and a four-speed manual was probably a beautiful entertaining vehicle back in the late ’70s. The Diablo name lived on until 1987, but after ’82, the hood picture was gone and without that demon.
