About us

Diabolique was the most successful private team in the Rallies that traveled the roads of Portugal. The image of the brand painted on the mythical Ford Escort RS is still alive today among fans of motor sports.

This team with a name that would become a legend, was created by Miguel Oliveira in 1980, already with many kilometers on Portuguese roads, this car enthusiast is one of the pioneers when he participates, behind the wheel of a Morris Cooper S, in the 1st edition of the Rally de Portugal

During 10 years of Rallies, Diabolique was the first in 39 races and the pair Joaquim Santos / Miguel Oliveira celebrated the title of National Rally Champion three times.

Joaquim Santos, in the inseparable Escort, impeccably painted with red, white and gold, with an aggressive drive that captivated the fans, flies in the 1983 Rally de Portugal, however, Ford resents the enormous effort, forcing Joaquim Santos pushing the car in the last meters of Candosa, after the semi-axle has broken. At the end of the best Rally in the World, the driver from Penafiel was the best Portuguese when he classified in 9th place.

The danger was always present for those who drove and for those who were on the side of the road. The excess of courage of many, who just a few centimeters away, saw on narrow and winding roads, the passage of bolides with the power varying between 400 and 600 horses that would easily accompany today's cars, but, unfortunately, the speed reached, was not accompanied by the current security systems, originating the fatal accident in the 1986 Rally de Portugal and this tragic moment is the most painful page of this rally team.

In its fourth year of existence, Diabolique, gives the name of a product for the first time, then appears, associated with a perfume. The initial commercial fiasco of this new fragrance quickly passes to success, when the brand receives an offer to buy all the bottles. In the statistics, Diabolique started to appear as one of the biggest exporters of Portuguese perfumes ever.
