Faults:

Not much really, I once had a problem with the gear stick, but it was easily fixed.

General Comments:

Amazing car, better than a Mclaren F1, good turns, really smooth, fast and everybody takes a look at you as you drive down the street. Driving one makes you feel like a god.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I think you guys wish you had one.

All you say is, I wish!

If you would really own one, you would not even be on the Internet doing these things.

Anyways you have good taste in cars.

I test drove a 1993 Diablo in Chicago once. Backing up the car is quite an ordeal: you have to open the "scissor-style" door, sit on the wide ledge to the left of the driver's seat, and turn your head to look backwards, while keeping your feet on the pedals. No joke - this is what the dealer told me.

Once moving forward, the growl from the engine was lower and gruffer than that of my 1990 Ferrari Mondial T. Naturally, the acceleration was shockingly good, but you could have figured that out already.

Faults:

Nothing as of yet!

General Comments:

You have never driven anything like this before. You honestly have not lived until you drive one. Worth every single hard-earned penny.

Such a rush - you feel like going out and beating the crap out of someone every time you drive it.

And nothing beats being able to stop a crowd in its tracks.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What the hell kind of job do you have? Cause I need myself a job like yours to go from a Honda to a car like that. I drive a Probe GT and it feels like a jet to me so I can only imagine how a Diablo would be.

Hey, you need to live in the US, there is a lot of long straightaways to go really fast on in Arizona. I only know because a friend of mine lives there with his Jaguar XJR220 and he has almost hit its top speed 220mph. Na, just kidding, he only hit 175mph but he said one day he will. Maybe you could beat him to it. Reply about how fast you have gone, I know that car was not bought just for looks was it?
