The Diablo is, to me, the V-12 Lamborghini to get. It’s got the drama and the weirdness of the Countach, but without the stratospheric prices that those command on the used market. And unlike a used Aventador or Murcielago, it doesn’t come off as the budget Lamborghini, bought to flex on other people; it’s old-school cool at this point. And now, I’ve found a perfect example for sale.

True, my definition of perfect is probably different from that of traditionalists. I don’t consider a car that’s 19 years old and has 12 miles on the odometer to be “perfect.” I consider it “wasted.” But this one—for sale at Gulf Coast Motorworks—has 48,930 miles, enough that it’s lived a full and interesting life under the care of owners who appreciated it.

Importantly, it isn’t beat up from those miles. The exterior looks fantastic, while the

Canary Wharf financial centre prepares for new way of working

London’s Canary Wharf has drawn up detailed plans to bring back tens of thousands of bankers, lawyers and accountants to the financial district as the coronavirus pandemic eases.

Rules on lift capacity, one-way routes around the Manhattan-style towers, and staggered working will be put in place.

The Docklands complex, the European home of HSBC, Barclays and Citigroup, has a working population of 120,000.

Canary Wharf expects a tenth of that to return over the next couple of weeks.
