The Diablo is a true exotic and is by far the most difficult and challenging to build. The scissor doors with fully functional door glass and locks are built by hand. The mid engine application is more costly and challenging than a front engine car to build. I believe the Diablo is a very sleek and sexy car from the factory but could be improved with some custom modifications to the appearance. I have owned and built several cars over the years but none have compared to the attention or celebrity status of the Lamborghini.
