This is it, guys. I’ve officially run out of Diablos.

Today’s post is two days past due because I was having trouble shooting on my other colored poster boards. Some had nasty scratches and oil spots, while others produced unwanted bright spots under my lighting. My perfectionist nature wouldn’t have any of it, so I came up with an ingenious solution to the problem: go back to the basics, back to where I came from, and shoot on white.

Problem solved.

I guess you could argue that the gloss orange of this AUTOart Diablo GTR is trending dangerously close towards yellow with the overexposure and such, but I couldn’t be more pleased with the way the photos came out. Perhaps my phone responds better to white backgrounds, because the pictures are extra sharp today (by its usual standards). And since my desk also happens to be white, I get to pull off stunts like this:

As you may already be able to tell, this model is chock full of details even with its considerable age. Engine and interior detail, though not shown, are on par with that of the exterior. That explains why it’s arguably the most desirable of all the AUTOart Diablo variants, in this particular color no less. As mentioned previously, I got this in a package deal with the SV for $290 shipped. Talk about damage.

So that concludes Running of the Bulls 2018 for me. It would’ve been nice to have seven straight days of Diablos, but I’ve got some hunting to do. The VT Coupe still eludes me - I’m waiting around to get a steal on one rather than jumping on any of the current listings. What I’m most excited for is the Diablo GT that GT Spirit will be releasing later this year.

You bet I’ll have a full house come 2019.
