Specifications

Aside from the standard safety additions that all PPG Pace Cars received, the Diablo appeared to be original from the factory with its 492-horsepower, 48-valve V12 engine. Not that it needed any more power – its top speed was a more-than-adequate 202 MPH.

Current Status

Unknown.

Here’s a great read by Dick Williamson, published in 1995, about driving the PPG Diablo Pace Car.
