Lamborghini Egoista Concept Revealed
To celebrate 50 years of the Raging Bull, Lamborghini rolled out the Egoista Concept over the weekend, a supercar built for one.
"This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum, “said Walter De Silva, head of design for the Volkswagen Group. “It is designed purely for hyper-sophisticated people who want only the most extreme and special things in the world. 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 and delivering 600 horsepower, the Egoista Concept is inspired by aeronautical design – specifially the Apache helicopter. The carbon fiber and aluminum cockpit has a racing seat with a four-point seatbelt, and the bare minimum of instruments. The focal point is a head-up display, typical of jet fighters.
The body of the Egoista Concept is made from a special antiradar material, and the glass is anti-glare with an orange gradation. The LED clearance lights determine the Egoista’s position not just on a single plane such as the road, but rather in three dimensions. The rims are also made from antiradar material, flat and rough, embellished with carbon-fiber plates to improve their aerodynamics.
No word yet from Lamborghini on any production plans.
