The first edition 2wd Diablo actually weighs 1420kgs. I know this from watching Harry's Garage on YouTube.

There is no concrete weight for anything. Some manufacturers publish EU curb weight, some publish DIN, some publish dry weight, others might publish weight with all fluids except fuel etc.

Just have to accept the fact that weight is never just one single number, it is a messy range. Only for your particular car in one particular moment will it be one concrete number.

For this Diablo weight you have to subtract 75 kg for driver, because it is probably EU curb weight. Harry Metcalfe (just like anyone else who is sane) weights his cars without driver.

It's ridiculous that manufacturers can't give consumers accurate kerb weight figures for a car topped up with fluids including a full tank of fuel. But then again it's not that surprising when some can't even give us real peak engine power figures FFS...

What happened to the 1/4mile and 1 mile times? I added them with trap speeds of 119mph and 169mph respectively... or maybe I did added them wrong.

Edit: I didn't add the 1mile time... did I? well, I guess I need to rest.

This is to replace the old page that had year of introduction wrong, picture wrong and so on.

Sorry, I know this is the 3rd time I've done something like this, but the old pages never got corrected.
