Presentazione Egoista

Lamborghini’s newest and most outrageous creation yet is built with a singular purpose, namely, pleasing the driver. As a result, there’s no room for anyone besides the lucky individual holding the steering wheel in their hands.

Called the Egoista (which, translated means “selfish”) the name says it all, with a singular focus on the individual owner. With just one-seat, it takes inspiration from fighter jets, with a cockpit that opens at the top and a head-up display dominating the view out front.

Unveiled last night at the closing ceremonies to Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary celebration, company CEO Stephen Winkelmann drove the wild creation onto the stage in front of a gathering of owners and brand loyalists.

Reportedly based on the Gallardo chassis it is powered by the brand’s 5.2-liter V10 engine which makes as much as 570 hp in certain models.

The creation of VW Group design boss Walter de Silva it’s not yet clear if the Egoista is simply styling concept or the next in a line of low volume production specialties for those looking for a truly unique machine.
