In the world of automotive marvels, where the ordinary takes a backseat to the extraordinary, Emanuel Colombini of Eccentrica Cars and the visionary design studio BorromeodeSilva have orchestrated a symphony of automotive restoration and innovation. Their canvas? A classic icon from the 1990s, the Lamborghini Diablo hypercar, resurrected and reborn as a retro-futuristic masterpiece, boasting a body forged from the finest 3D-printed titanium.
In a limited production run of just 19 bespoke models, this remarkable restomod Lamborghini Diablo draws inspiration from the sporty Diablo GTR, capturing the hearts of dedicated Lamborghini aficionados and custom car enthusiasts alike. For this metamorphosis, Colombini and BorromeodeSilva have masterfully transformed every inch of the car’s body, excluding only the windshield.
The Eccentrica hypercar’s proportions have been meticulously reshaped, emphasizing its aggressive aura while seamlessly adapting its handling and stability to meet modern technological demands. A shimmering, titanium-infused body, conjured through the magic of 3D printing technology, bestows upon the Eccentrica hypercar an unparalleled blend of lightness, rigidity, and robustness. An eye-catching feature, the pop-down headlights, not only harken back to the heyday of retro-futurism but also accentuate this remarkable transformation. The international debut of this reborn hypercar recently graced the hallowed grounds of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, wowing the crowds from July 13th to 16th, 2023.
But the transformation doesn’t stop at the exterior. The interior of the restomod Lamborghini Diablo serves as a crossroads between 1990s minimalism and the cutting-edge mechanics of luxury watchmaking. Colombini and BorromeodeSilva have breathed new life into the steering wheel and dashboard, delivering a modern aesthetic that enhances driver comfort, intuition, and safety. The deep-blue seats have been meticulously reimagined to offer improved aesthetics and ergonomics.
Upholstery crafted from a masterful blend of materials, including leather and Alcantara, guarantees lightness, breathability, and a steadfast grip. The center tunnel and internal door trim, all sourced and crafted in Italy, share this exquisite material symphony. Even the act of starting the engine has been choreographed into an authentic ritual, a nod to the nostalgia of 1990s video games and iconic films like ‘Top Gun.’
The technical prowess of the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo is equally awe-inspiring. The collaborative efforts of Emanuel Colombini, BorromeodeSilva, and a team of engineering virtuosos have resulted in a hypercar that boasts Pirelli tires, a Brembo braking system, Marantz audio, and a Capristo exhaust system. Once the technical wizardry is complete, this automotive masterpiece will be a street-legal marvel, ready to conquer racetracks at the owner’s discretion.
Virtual simulations have illuminated the capabilities of the restored Lamborghini Diablo, showcasing a staggering 0 to 100 km/h sprint in a mere 3.5 seconds, a top speed soaring to 335 km/h, and a lateral acceleration of 1.2g through the curves. The original 5.7-liter V12 engine has been refined with new valves and camshafts, resulting in a power boost to a resounding 550 HP at 7,000 rpm, with a peak torque of 600 Nm at 6,500 rpm.
When it comes to the rubber meeting the road, Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, the epitome of track tires for the road, take center stage. And the Brembo braking system, a marvel of engineering, allows the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo to halt from 100 km/h to a standstill in a jaw-dropping 34 meters, a full 7 meters less than the original model.
Excitement for the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo doesn’t stop at Goodwood. This restored legend is set to make a grand appearance at Monterey Car Week in August, then head to New York in September before taking on Miami in October. Prepare to be spellbound by a true masterpiece in automotive resurrection and transformation, a symphony of power, style, and innovation – the Eccentrica Lamborghini Diablo.
