Lamborghini Diablo 1995 PPG Pace Car black

Lamborghini Diablo (Black) – 1995 PPG Pace Car

In 1995, this Lamborghini was the most powerful pace car in Indy Car’s 82-year history.


7/2/19 Mike Sack, director of the PPG Pace Car program in the 90’s, confirmed that the Diablo was black from the factory. Later it was repainted and can be seen here: Gold Lamborghini Diablo PPG Pace Car..


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.

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