    Copying a thread started by silver99, I'd like to have help in compiling performance numbers for the various Diablo's. Here it goes. I found July 2000 Road and Track Cover Story "Diablo! Faster than 'Hell'"
    0-60 3.6 Seconds
    0-100 8.8 Seconds
    Quarter Mile 12.0@119.8
    Top Speed 205

    We need this badly, it's easy to get Murcie figures but in researching it I've found it's nearly impossible to get a good backlog of Diablo speed test results.

    Just make sure to denote which model they tested Dave, was that a 6.0 in that R&T test?

    You know,there's always one magazine that cant drive,no matter what car.I think the Roadster #'s I have seen were in the 4.0 range,with the quarter around 12.5.The Roadsters are slightly slower than the coupes,but it looks like this tester didnt know how to launch an AWD system.
