Scott Reiner has been detailing cars for 38 years. “It’s my passion,” he says. “The world of detailing has been nonstop for me since I was young. I have had no other job.”

The owner of Worldwide Detailing Products & Services in Tucson will detail any car, boat or RV, but he specializes in making high-end luxury and performance vehicles look showroom new for collections, shows, auctions and private sales.

In particular, he has meticulously serviced a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster for more than a decade. The red-on-black mid-engine supercar is documented as the first Diablo imported into the United States. Only 466 or 468 Diablo Roadsters were produced from 1996 to 1999; they were the first 200-mph Lambos. The 530-horsepower, 5-speed Italian exotic has logged just 25,000 miles; garage kept, it has been fully serviced since July 1997 when it arrived in California.


Reiner provides a variety of services, including a Full-Service Wash; Mobile Autowash and Detailing; Interior Detailing, with steam-cleaning for cloth or leather; Exterior Detailing, including polishing and waxing; Engine Steam Clean; and Ceramic and Graphene Coatings. In addition, the company offers Concorso Italiano Preparation and Private Collection Options for shows and sales.

Reiner traces his car/motorcycle passion to his drag racing youth. His first job in the industry was at a Tucson Toyota dealership, where he learned the business from a veteran car detailer. Then he hung out his detailing shingle.

Through a client, Reiner became involved with the Lamborghini Club America; he’s been a member since 1994. After he had finished detailing a Lambo, members began requesting his services, and he was on the fast track.


In 1996, the Diablo owner, a fellow Club member, visited the Lamborghini factory in Sant’ Agata, Bologna, where he met the great factory-team driver, Valentino Balboni, who took him for a high-gs heart-throbbing test drive. When his head cleared, he bought the 1997.

Numerous show awards have been given as a result of its classic Gandini design, one-off status as the first roadster in the United States –– and Reiner’s distinguised premium care. In 2007, 2008, and 2010, the Diablo placed 1st in Class at the Concorso Italiano, held annually during Monterey Car Week.

In preparation for the 2019 event, Prestige Autohaus, which handles the Diablo’s technical aspects, confirmed that no modifications have been made since its purchase. “It is exactly as received from the factory 25 years ago,” the owner says.


About the same time, Reiner completed a fastidious detail on the car in California. “We spent about 100 hours on the Diablo over two months, including 20 hours of polishing and 12–15 hours applying graphene ceramic,” he says.

At the event, The Diablo again secured 1st in Class place as well as being elected the People’s Choice. And this year at Concorso Italiano, the car won 1st in Class and the much-sought-after Valentino Award, honoring the driver who inspired the purchase 25 years ago.

“I’ll go anywhere in the U.S. and worldwide,” Reiner says, noting that he hopes to be invited to go to Scottsdale in January to show a vehicle at the reborn Arizona Concours.

“When I hear people asking about ‘that great car detailer in Arizona,’” he says, “I want them to know I am that car detailer. Call us.”
