Lamborghini Egoista

Just when we thought that we knew all there was to know about Lamborghini ’s 50th anniversary celebration , they go ahead and unveil a completely unexpected one-off model. This new model, which is dubbed the Egoista, was shown to a select group of 350 faithful customers at a special dinner that the Italian supercar builder held.

The first thing that strikes us as odd, sans the wild styling, is the name, which translates to “Selfish;” that’s quite an unusual name for a car. The Egoista obviously borrowed a lot of its design language from the recently launched Veneno , with its F1 -style nose and angular body.

The Egoista’s constructed mostly of carbon fiber and aluminum that is coated in a radar-absorbent material to help keep the cops from clocking you while flying down the highway – fortunately, this is only a concept, so Lambo can do as it pleases with the coating. Orange highlights the car in various areas, including the super-styled wheels and inside the intakes. The oddest of the orange accents is the orange-tinted front windshield.

The exterior of the Lamborghini Egoista was inspired by an image of a bull ready to attack, if observed from the side.

As for the lighting, it is reminiscent of a modern airplane, with sidemarkers and indicators on the sides, top, front and rear of the car. The bodywork is designed with unbelievable aerodynamics effect in mind, with active aerodynamic panels that raise and lower for optimum downforce and stability. Both body and wheels are made of antiradar material.

Up front, the Egoista introduces a carbon-fiber trunk lid, quite sinister looking LED headlights, and well-formed air intakes that are both functional and elegant. If looked from the side, the Egoista has a more Lamborghini-like look, though still taken to the extreme.

At the back, the LED taillights are almost as evil looking as the LED headlights. Above the two outer taillights are the two air flaps with the ability to raise and lower in order to keep the back end planted to the ground. Near the rear wheels, there is a large air intake with an orange highlight on the inside.

The Egoista comes with a unique one-seat cockpit, which is, much like the exterior, similar to that of a modern fighter jet, and has a removable canopy door. In order to enter and exit the vehicle, the steering wheel needs to be removed.

The single racing seat is equipped with a four-point harness with each strap being in different color. The Egoista features a heads-up display for keeping all information right in the driver’s view. The entire cabin is dominated by orange, with small grey and black sporadic highlights. The steering wheel looks pretty minimalistic with only a grip for each hand. The instrument panel is also small and plain.

Lamborghini Egoista Price

“It is a car for itself, a gift from Lamborghini to Lamborghini, resplendent in its solitude. The Egoista is pure emotion, Never Never Land, which no one can ever possess, and which will always remain a dream, for everyone”

This was the exact quote from Lamborghini in reference to the Egoista. We think this statement alone lets us know that this beast will never make its way into production. That’s likely a good decision, given its extreme design.
