To point to go to celebrate the christmas Eve, we find an auction very special on eBay. A Lamborghini Diablo of the eighty, or ninety, by 4.200€. It would be a bargain, in every rule, if it were not for the fact that this Lamborghini need something more than a little hand painting. The remains of what one day was a Lamborghini Diablo were in the suburbs of Orlando, Florida, and have barely survived his chassis and part of the structure, lack of body, engine, and even coatings of your car. This Devil, that’s definitely a day went by better times, has also suffered with hardness and weather the passage of time, as denoted by the corrosion of its structure.
1. Directly to the scrap merchant. In view of your state, anyone would think that the best destination for this old Devil would be a scrap dealer. Sell your steel structure weight, forget what that day represented this car, and free up space in the warehouse that had been saved up to now. Too easy for a pretrol head, don’t you think?
it Was then when the team motor got to deliberate.
2. Create a work of art automobile. While I proposed to my companions to do the accounts, and bring us the remains of this Devil to Spain, and Oscar was offered for adoption, and prepare a customized diet to the dog, who snuck in the top photo, we did that, with a good body and paint work, we could turn these remains into a sculpture. It would definitely not be so comfortable to install in any home as a vase of porcelain china or a jug of Talavera pottery, but what passionate of the car with a house big enough to have that sculpture not what I would buy?
3. Rebuild a Lamborghini Diablo. Mario Herraiz, we do not have enough with your MX-5 first generation, and walks daily by forums and websites of sales of classics, suggested that it was too easy. Why not rebuild it? The job I need this chassis to return to being a Devil is immense, has to start practically from scratch, rebuild parts, try to find original spare parts, and ultimately to embark on a project that hardly make it worthwhile to devote much effort and money. Even knowing that we are talking about a sport that is listed in the order of hundreds of thousands of euros in these days.
4. Rebuild this Devil with a transplant motor. The experience in the united States of our colleague Sergio, perhaps, made us see the light. There was No need to rebuild a Diablo using original spare parts. In fact, neither did lack a budget very high to return the sparkle to this chassis, although many desire, time and skills to work the metal. Sergio, we proposed to attach a us engine, something like one of those V8 with over 300 HP that are sold in the united States for just 3,000 euros.
Definitely the opportunity escaped. And the Lamborghini Diablo has already been sold. Your new owner will have a lot of work ahead, to tenor so impaired that it is your body, which years ago was treated with special products to contain corrosion. As it seems, the story that lies behind the deterioration of this Devil is a fire, which ended up with half a car wrecked, the rest scrapped, and what little that was, auctioned off on eBay to make happy to any buyer in the christmas celebrations this year.
