While the Ferraris featured here (the F40, F50 and 360) have all been some pretty clean examples, this Diablo does not fall under that category, requiring a full rebuild of all 12 cylinders. In these shots you can really see the Lamborghini tractor lineage due to the just-get-it-done appearance of most of the engine's components. Yes, it's an exotic, but not in the hermetically-sealed Ferrari sort of way. We can definitely appreciate that.
