They are also in cooperation belonging to Prototypes and technical questions with Bertone. Bertone is going to present two new mid-engined sportscars. A so called "Baby Diablo" with a Bi-turbo V8 Engine (this engines relies to an Audi engine). And the "new" Diablo will be presented at the International Car Show in the year 2001. The Diablo GT (going to be delivered in autumn this year) is also redesigned by Carozzeria Bertone. (Source: Stefan Sehring).

Lamborghini Recall
There was a recall of 1998 Lamborghini Diablos, here are the details: (Thanks to Roman miura@erols.com for this information)

1998 LAMBORGHINI DIABLO
Vehicle Description: Passenger vehicles equipped with air bags.

A Supplementary Rubber Windshield Header Protector to be installed by the vehicle owner onto the windshield header when driving with the vehicle's top removed was omitted. Injury to unbelted occupants could occur if the vehicle's top is removed and the vehicle is involved in a crash. Dealers will replace the Windshield Header Rail Trim Panel and provide the owner with the missing Supplemental Rubber Windshield Header Rail Protector.
