Personally, I like the Modena in black. It gives it a cool night look; and the way the red lights in the back go with a black exterior is very nice. Or, you could go with a Maroon color. I've seen Diablo's in Maroon that look excelent, and the Modena I think would also fit that color very nicely. I think I agree that the red color that it comes in is a llittle too plain. I don't know much about modifying the performance of a Modena. 1/4 miles in 12.7 seconds, and 0-100 mph in 9.8 seconds is fast enough for me. By the way, this is perhaps off the topic, but LamboOwner, how much hp did your '98 Diablo come stock with, and did it have VVT? I thought it was 530 hp like the '99 models, but then I thought I heard that the SV was the only Diablo with 530 hp in '98, and the 2WD and VT hadn't been updated yet. Thanks.
