Asking too much money from the start?
Always asked the same. Too much years ago, now the market has caught up with his asking price.

With these early Diablos, all you have to do to stop the speedo from recording km is unplug the cable. That's it.

Same on the Testarossa.........and the F40............and the 288 GTO........and just about every italian car of the era.

The 288 GTO is hilarious, the connection is on the end of the gearbox just under the rear bumper :p

For these early Diablos it's near the center tunnel. All you have to do is raise the car on the hoist and it's right there in front of you. A simple plug holding two wires together.

In other words folks, take odometer readings with a grain of salt unless backed up by service records and other data.

I can absolutely assure you that even that's not good enough.

Hence...buy cars on condition ONLY.....or new, of course.

I love my car.

Other data being condition related. The older the car the more important it is.
