An event was recently held at Garage 21 in Milan to unveil this amazing Eccentrica prototype based on the Lamborghini Diablo that was the star supercar in the 90s. The restomod is the brainchild of Emanuel Colombini, a passionate and dynamic entrepreneur who’s CEO of the Colombini Group. The man is also a classic car collector with a strong connection with Lamborghini, hence the project you see here. 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.” Together with a great team that includes design firm BorromeodeSilva for the design work, Pirelli for the tyres, Brembo for the brakes, Marantz for the audio system, Capristo for the exhaust system, and Alcantara (an apt name) for the upholstery - all under the Eccentrica banner. The base for the restomod is an early 90s Diablo from the first production series first introduced in January 1990. The name "Eccentrica" comes from the late-Latin word "Eccentrus", meaning a position far from the centre and the inspiration comes from Ptolemaic astronomy, which features deferent motions and orbits, specifically, eccentric ones. The Diablo Eccentrica will feature 19 distinctive models.
Take a look at the YouTube video the details the ins and outs of this amazing recreation of the early 90s favourite that was plastered over kids and workshop walls the world over - the angular and amazing Lamborghini Diablo, but this time it comes from Eccentrica Cars in the form of an absolutely stunning restomod: Lamborghini Diablo Restomod By Eccentrica Cars | DPCcars
