Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 11 - 11 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Any Diablo is going to take large chunks out of your wallet, whether you let it live a pampered low mileage lifestyle in a heated garage or drive it on a regular basis. A set of tyres are ferociously pricey, servicing is complex and expensive, and fuel, insurance and general running costs could fund a small country. However, depreciation is not such a worry as the Diablo is rapidly gaining classic and cult status.

The Diablo produces more than half a kilo of carbon dioxide every kilometre and was never designed with green issues in mind.

The Diablo is neatly polarised here by pre and post 1998 cars. Before 1998, the Diablo was flung together with little thought given to fit or finish, while after then the car improved dramatically. Audi’s influence tells in the way post-98 cars were rid of creaks and rattles. Mechanically, the V12 is strong, but this relies on careful, detailed servicing and it’s the same story for the gearbox, suspension and brakes.
