To think of the 90s is to think of the Diablo, a car that was able to balance perfection and imperfection at the same time. Through the restomod project, the personality of this legendary car has been further highlighted, restoring it to its former glory whilst improving its technical setup.
"The Diablo was my dream car as a kid, I remember it shiny and
red on the
cover of Quattroruote. At the time, it was the supercar that
broke all speed
records! These memories and emotions came back again when I saw
about ten years ago in a dealership, almost forgotten but
charming and gritty
as ever. As we went over its design and aesthetics, we realized
that this model could have if only we updated the lines and
"flaws" – for lack of a better term – of the double
management. Then, I had the opportunity to test a Diablo Gt
which I then
added to my collection and that’s when I realized that a Diablo
with today's mechanics and components could be a
one-of-a-kind car with
unparalelled driving dynamics – I called it, and still do, a
600hp go-kart. If you
add to the mix its timeless and specific design combined with a
naturally aspirated V12 engine, there was no way we weren’t
A comprehensive approach has been applied to improve the car's mechanics and performance, preserving its spirit and retaining the car's analogue feel, whilst optimizing the power delivery.
Lamborghini’s unique character and style are emphasized throughout the entire design by elevating the original concept to its purest evolution where selected additional elements make all the difference.
The overall aim is to keep the design period correct, but also to elevate the look and feel by swapping plastic for high quality materials and completely reviewing the ergonomics and user experience.
