The restomod treatment has been applied to many different brands and models over the years. We enjoy seeing what companies do to modernise older cars. The latest member of this ever-growing club is the Diablo Eccentrica. This is the brainchild of Lamborghini collector and racer Emanuel Colombini.

Emanuel Colombini stated, “As a child I remember seeing the red Diablo in the first release of the Quattroruote magazine. It was love at first sight! It’s hard for other cars to leave such a strong impression on me. Later, after having had the chance to drive the GT version, I decided to pay homage to it, conceiving of a restomod company built around this project. At its essence lies the idea that the hypercar and supercar market will require a product with a more authentic soul, precisely like the sensations drivers experienced while driving these speedsters.”


As you may have already guessed, the Diablo Eccentrica is based on the Lamborghini Diablo. It takes its aesthetic inspiration from the track-focused GTR model. Apart from making the car more aggressive in appearance the new look is also more functional. The company states that all body parts have been redesigned, save for the windshield.

The revised Diablo features several redesigned elements. Among these are the LED headlamps, which are referred to as ‘pop-downs’. The front fenders are subtly flared. The outer skin has been refashioned from carbon-fibre, which shaves 35 kg from the original car’s mass. New 19-inch alloys are inspired by the world of motorsport.

The interiors of the Eccentrica have been created to be a meeting point between the minimalism of the early 1990s and the state-of-art mechanics typical of luxury watchmaking. The cabin also takes inspiration from motorsport. The cabin is upholstered in leather and Alcantara. The instrument panel has been updated with a higher quality display of information and a retro ’90s aesthetic. The sound system is provided by Marantz.

V12 Power

The Diablo Eccentrica retains the original 5,7-litre V12. The engine features new valves and camshafts to add a few extra ponies. Eccentrica quotes the outputs as 404 kW of power and 600 N.m of torque. The high-revving engine now breathes through a Capristo exhaust system. An upgraded Brembo brake set-up and Pirelli semi-slicks are also part of the mechanical upgrades.

A six-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels. Eccentrica says its creation will s[rint from 0-100km/h in 3,8 seconds, and that it has a top speed of 335 km/h.
