As Restomod Creation Of Emanuel Colombini

One of only 19 Lamborghini Diablo legacy models worldwide – scheduled for customised restoration – has been unveiled at the Pupil of Fate Motors luxury car showroom in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The unveiling on May 10, 2024, of the one-of-a-kind 1990 ‘Eccentrica Diablo’, meticulously crafted by the acclaimed Eccentrica team in Italy, as a restomod project, marks a significant moment in the Middle East’s luxury automotive landscape.

Colombini founded Eccentrica in June 2020 to boldly pay tribute to and redefine Lamborghini’s heritage while safeguarding it.

In pursuit of excellence and to turn the restomod into a brand capable of firing up the market, in September 2022, Colombini began partnering with BorromeodeSilva and other high-end suppliers and partners to work on the restoration of the Diablo, work that only finished in July 2023. BorromeodeSilva is a niche communication and design company headquartered in Milan.

Total Rework

In this respect, the bodywork of the Diablo was redesigned entirely, leaving only the original windshield; all other parts, including fenders, hood, flanks and side skirts, have been replaced with improved carbon fibre components, providing perfect surface integration, greater aerodynamic efficiency and updated visuals with plenty of unique details for the discerning eye.

The hypercar’s proportions have also been pushed to their proper limits, revealing a dominant look, exceptional handling, and stability, defined by the widened track and shortened front and rear overhangs. Part of the vehicle’s unique features are its pop-down headlights.

The Eccentrica’s debut in the UAE perfectly mirrors the country’s drive for innovation and its insatiable appetite for luxury, creating a sense of shared values.

Pupil of Fate Motors, a trailblazer in the luxury car scene since its inception in August 2022, epitomises automotive excellence with its extensive collection of collector cars, supercars, and hypercars.
