Italian automaker, Lamborghini on celebrating its 50th anniversary has just unveiled the Egoista Concept, which is an incredible vehicle and a car forged from a passion for innovation and alternative solutions. The car is made for one person only. It represents hedonism taken to the extreme, it is a car without compromises, in a word, egoista (selfish).
Powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine supplying it with 600 horsepower, the Lamborghini Egoista is an intentionally extreme and unusual vehicle with absolutely unique characteristics. Inspiration, as per Lamborghini tradition, once again comes from the world of aviation, and in particular the Apache helicopter, where the cockpit can be ejected in an emergency.
The Egoista concept car is made from lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon-fiber. The bodywork is dominated, on its sides, by the stylized profile of a bull preparing to charge, its horns lowered. The Lamborghini Egoista’s lights are more like an aircraft’s than a road vehicle’s. Two white front lights, two red rear lights, a red flashing light in the upper part of the tail, two orange bull’s eyes as side markers, and a further two lights on the roof, red on the left and green on the right, make this four-wheeled UFO unique even in the dark.
The cockpit’s interior is extremely rational, its functionality taken to the extreme. There is a racing seat with a four-point seatbelt, each strip a different color, the airbags, and the bare minimum of instruments.
