Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo Restomod Makes Roadshow Debut

Eccentrica Cars, the San Marino-based start-up brainchild of entrepreneur Emanuel Colombini, just debuted its first restomod project, the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo. The Eccentrica prototype is scheduled to appear at several global car events.

Technical partners in making the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo includes design firm BorromeodeSilva, Pirelli for the tires, Brembo for the braking system, Marantz for the audio system, Capristo for the exhaust system, and Alcantara for the interior upholstery.

The donor car for the project came from the Diablo supercar’s first model series, first introduced in 1990. Taking inspiration from the Diablo GTR, the donor car’s bodywork received a total rework, with the exception of the windshield. Everything else, including the bumpers, hoods, laterals, and side skirts, have been replaced.

The Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo modifications include a wedge-shaped volume, 3D printed titanium elements, widened front and rear tracks, a shorter overhang, streamlined front-end, redesigned grill incorporating the Eccentrica logo, a larger extractor inspired by the Diablo GT, pop-down headlights, contrasting tow hook in the front bumper, aerodynamic fins on the side skirt, repositioned windows, roof air scoops inspired by the Diablo SV, 19” alloy wheels, Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, slender carbon bumpers in the rear, twin rear air intakes and redesigned tail lights.

Inside, Eccentrica’s interior boasts a minimalist slant with an ergonomically designed steering wheel, a carbon fiber steering column, repositioned logo, a solid-milled gear shift, a redesigned dashboard profile, an updated instrument panel with a retro ‘90s flare, a Marantz audio system, leather, and Alcantara interiors.

 Running on a modified 5.7-liter V12 engine, the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo’s powertrain gets new valves and camshafts that bring its power up to 550 hp and 442.5 lb-ft of torque, all channeled through a five-speed manual transmission. It also sports a Brembo sculptural 6-piston monoblock and slotted disc brake system and Capristo aluminum alloy tailpipes that both enhance performance and the engine’s loud roar. Virtual simulation testing pegged the car’s 0-60 mph run at under 4.5 seconds with a projected top speed of 204 mph.

After its roadshow debut at Garage 21 in Milan, the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo will make its next stop at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from July 13th to 17th and at the Monterey Car Week from August 16th to 20th. 

The first Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo will be a limited run of only 19 custom models with customer-personalized body paint jobs, upholstery, fabrics, and materials. Each example is estimated to take 16 to 18 months to complete and will carry a starting cost of around $1,300,000, not including the cost of the donor car.
