Based on the high level know-how reached by Lamborghini's composite material department, most of the body parts are made of carbon fibre except for the roof and the doors. The new-design front bumper integrates air intakes for the brakes, as well as new head lamps. New design front and rear fenders match the wider track and the improved water radiator air intakes. A rear spoiler was available, as an optional, for high level sports driving.

Newly designed interior incorporating carbon fibre technology. All the components such as seats, steering wheel, dashboard, central tunnel, switch panels, door panels, aim at combining a sports style with elegance and comfort. The driver's seat has been moved toward the central axis of the car to guarantee a better driving position. The seats can be longitudinally adjusted on a wider range. The instrument panel as well as the instruments themselves have been redesigned for better visibility and the new panel is in carbon fibre.

The whole interior is lined in leather and the components in carbon fibre and aluminium contribute to the sports style of the cockpit. Airbags for driver and passenger are standard. The windshield-wiper was redesigned for improved visibility at high speed.

The Diablo 6.0 features a wider front track (+60mm) with modified suspension, electronically improved controlled dampers and higher rigidity chassis. The rear track too has been slightly increased. The result is a top level handling , with a substantial improvement of the car dynamics while achieving a better suspension comfort. The clutch, brake and gas pedals have also been improved with more foot space for comfort and driveability. New lightweight magnesium alloy wheels have been adopted.

The engine has been increased in size to 6 litres (5992 cc) which resulted in an power increase of 20%. It is equipped with a variable intake valve timing system in order to guarantee good charge efficiency and good torque not only at high r.p.m. but also at low speed. The 6 litre V12 engine is equipped with titanium connecting rods and a lighter crankshaft to improve performance. The exhaust system was redesigned to reduce the back pressure and integrates the Lamborghini ENCS system for noise control.

4WD transmission was based on the well proven VT (Viscous Traction) system. The gearbox control lever is in the central tunnel but in an asymmetric position in order to be closer to the steering wheel and guarantee better ergonomics.
