Eccentrica Delivers Stunning RestoMod Version of The Lamborghini Diablo

Emanuel Colombini has turned his passion for Lamborghinis into a premium automotive brand. Through the designated engineering direction of design firm BorromeodeSilva, his company Eccentrica has entered hypercar territory with what will be a 1 of 16 RestoMod interpretation of the legendary Lamborghini Diablo. Ultimately Colombini aimed to modernize and innovate a 90s supercar, while still maintaining its unique identity. 

The Diablo has never been reinterpreted before, possibly because of its iconic history and popularity in media. However, Colombini, who has a deep appreciation for the Italian brand and the model, was the perfect person to take on the task.

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.

The Eccentrica prototype called upon renowned technical partners for a number of exclusive features. Pirelli provided the tires, Brembo created the braking system, Marantz designed the audio system, Capristo produced the exhaust system, and Alcantara made the upholstery. The technical development was entrusted to a team of internationally renowned engineers who are providing their know-how for the vehicle’s future production.

So, what is a Restomod? It begins with an out-of-production vehicle to be used as a “donor car”. It is then manipulated with modern design-cues and updated parts to create a car with advanced technical features and high-quality finishes, albeit, still retaining the character of its original state. The donor car used for the Eccentrica, is a first-series Lamborghini Diablo model. First introduced in January 1990, the Diablo rose in popularity for its aggressive wedge appearance, designed by Marcello Gandini. In addition to its compelling looks, it also became the fastest production car at the time of its debut, reaching a top-speed of 325 km/h.

The restomod based on the Diablo is a truly impressive piece of automotive art. It aims to revitalize and modernize the original car’s raw and instinctive driving experience by upgrading its technology and design. The result is a more powerful and fierce version of the original car, with enhanced features that take the 1990s’ mechanics to new heights.

The Eccentrica prototype is making its way to some of the most exciting car events in the world. From its debut in Milan to the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed in England, and then on to Monterey Car Week with a special event in partnership with important dealers in the industry. Exciting times are ahead for car enthusiasts who will have the opportunity to witness this incredible prototype in action.


The bodywork of the donor car was completely revised except for the windshield, which remains the same. All the other parts (bumpers, hoods, flanks, and side skirts) have been replaced with new components, providing perfect integration and greater efficiency. The vehicle’s original proportions have been taken to the extreme to highlight its aggressive look and handling, and stability, as demonstrated by the widened track both in the front and rear areas.

New motorsport-inspired 19” alloy wheels fill the angular arches very well. But one of the car’s most distinctive features are the “pop-down headlights”, standing out for their retro-futuristic look while upholding compliance with current standards. The goal of the Eccentrica was simple: replace the ‘very 90s’ plastic elements with modern materials while altering the ergonomics and user experience. Judging from the photos alone, it certainly appears as though their goal was exceeded.
