The futuristic-looking Lamborghini Egoista will be on permanent display at the Lamborghini Museum in Sant-Agata Bolognese, Italy, according to a press release issued by Lamborghini May 16.
The Egoista was unveiled May 11, 2013 as a tribute to Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary, and what a tribute this car is. It is a single-seater car powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that is able to produce 600 hp. But it’s not the engine that draws people to this car. Instead, it is the unique styling.
Its aeronautical design influences are very apparent upon first glance. The cockpit dome is made of anti-glare windows that have an orange hue. This dome looks as if it was taken straight from a fighter jet. Inside the cockpit is a heads-up display that really makes the driver feel as though they are in a jet or helicopter cockpit.

And, as with most fighter jets, certain steps must be taken before the cockpit’s occupant exits. Most importantly, they must remove the steering and leave it on the dashboard. Opening the Egoista’s dome is done electronically, but once it is open, the occupant must complete a specific series of movements in order to exit the car.
If you are in the Sant-Agata Bolognese area, be sure to visit the Lamborghini Museum to see this one-of-a-kind automobile in person.
