For the same price, would you rather have an older diablo or a 360 Modena?

Both awesome cars, but between these two, without a doubt, a DIABLO. :thumb:

I'll be the first 360 fanboy and chime in with a vote for the Ferrari.

I've actually been doing similar comparison shopping...well, kinda. I've been comparing a 360 Modena vs a 360 Modena Stradale and can't decide if the extra $ is worth it. /images/graemlins/smiles

To me the Lambo and the 360 are two very different cars.

The Ferrari will be less worry than the Diablo. Easier to find people to work on it, more of them around, and the quality will be better. It'll get attention but nothing like a Diablo will and the Diablo is faster.

The Diablo. Very fast, raw, causes accidents in traffic from too many people trying to get a look. Anything pre 1995 you should stay away from. The 6.0 is without a doubt the best built of the Diablo line; updated interior; more power.. great car!

You will have one of the best cars around either way. Good luck.

I think Cherm is correct on his reasoning...and has some experience :bowdown: I'd rather have the Diablo. Either one makes a good second car to the Viper.

Nexus, what color combo are you looking for? The TDF with the matching blue inserts on the CS is a gorgeous car; get the shields too. But there have been some people in the Ferrari community that have gotten somewhat screwed over by FNA in regards to the Stradale, so be careful. But honestly, the 360 Spider with Challenge Grille, shields, lowered with a nice set of HRE's and Capristo exhaust is really a quite perfect car for less money and wait.

I'm gonna go with Nexus and second, or third, the Ferrari. I'd guess you could pick up a much newer 360 for the comaprable price to whatever Diablo you are looking at.

This is assuming you're not talking about the Diablo 6.0. If that's the case, I'd buy that.

I keep looking for a black/black one...I just love the 360 in black...drooooooooool...........

I shouldn't even be looking! So it's kind of a half hearted attempt. If something came up that I couldn't turn down I'd probably bite.

Not a fan of the Spyder myself. Probably in the vast minority in that, but the coupe is just perfectly proportioned to me. The Spyder looks nice but I'm just not a roadster kinda guy.

I wouldn't call either car a commuter, but the Ferrari would likely be a bit more practical (at least it would cause less accidents). I've seen a few 360s here and there, but only one Diablo on the road. It's a real neck-jerker.

But the early Diablos were no faster than a base Corvette or 355, so they would be more for show than go. The 96 and newer models were quicker, especially the 6.0. /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif

I personally prefer the style of the 355 to the 360, and you could get a 355 Spyder (I like convertibles best) for less than the price of a base 360.
And the 360 Spyders are still way overpriced in my view.

I think the decision here is pretty obvious.

Somehow I think that if I bought a Diablo that my Viper would be making a good second car to the Lambo. /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

For me - if I couldn't get the last model or two of the Diablo 6.0 - I'd go for the 360 - either hardtop or Spyder - in black.... actually make that a Spyder with Tubi exhaust.... /images/graemlins/smiles

But there's no doubt - the later Lambo's are the hot rod of the two and have far more presence. But then the Diablo's are history now - so I'd flip a coin /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

Now if you asked about a Murcielago... well - then no comparison -

Have you seen the CS Black on Black with the stripe? It's a hot car - let me dig up some pics.

At the risk of being piled on, I personally like the 360 Modena F1 in red.
Too many Diablo's in rap videos IMHO.
