Just curious, I’m learning the VIN structure for diablos. For the 5th digit, what are all of the designated markets?
I know USA is U.
I know Europe is E
Does Asia, Middle East, Africa and Australia have their own letter designation?

thanks!

Australia models are indistinguishable from EU models, so all Australian delivered cars have E in the fifth digit.

Middle East has its own designation, but I can't remember what it is.

Odd. Evidently, my car was for USA yet sold in Canada. Also, a 95 coupe with a 6 speed. Perhaps the decoder isn't quite calibrated?

Thanks! I’ll assume a vehicle sent to the Middle East or Saudi Arabia is under the Other category
