If you thought the Lamborghini Veneno was intense, wait until you see the Lamborghini Egoista Concept.
Unveiled at the 50th anniversary party for Lamborghini, this one-seater supercar concept is a sight to behold. The design for the Egoista was fueled by a passion for innovation and alternative solutions. “This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum. 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),” said creator Walter De Silva.
The Egoista itself is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that is good for 600hp. To get the engine started, you must first get inside the cockpit, which is done by lifting the orange cover. Inside, the cockpit is made completely out of carbon fiber and aluminum. The design of the interior is also tailor-made for the driver, which is common sense considering this car is centered around one person: the driver. The racing seat features a four-point seatbelt that has different colored strips, and the seat itself is an orange color that matches material used around the cockpit.
Inspiration for the cockpit comes from an Apache helicopter, but unlike the Apache, guns are not attached to the Egoista. However, this inspiration continues to the exterior as well, which features sharp edges, and both a red & green light mounted on the roof of the car which is similar to those found on aircrafts.
I don’t expect the Egoista Concept to be a production car, but its quite the one-off as of right now. Props go to Lamborghini for making some of the most insane looking vehicles I have seen in quite some time.
