Lamborghini Egoista Concept Car RevealedBy: Sean Patterson - May 13, 2013
The design of Lamborghini cars has always bee a little different, but a new concept sports car by the Italian carmaker is making heads turn.
At a recent Lamborghini 50th anniversary party, car designer Walter De Silva debuted the Lamborghini Egoista, a “supercar” designed for “hyper-sophisticated people who want only the most extreme and special things in the world.”
“I am very attached to this Italian brand, being an Italian myself,” said De Silva. “I wanted to pay homage to and think up a vehicle to underline the fact that Lamborghinis have always been made with passion, and with the heart more than the head.”
The car has room for only the driver, who pilots the vehicle from a carbon fiber and aluminum “cockpit,” which includes a four-point harness. The steering wheel must be removed for the driver to exit the car. Much of the car’s exterior is also crafted from carbon-fiber and aluminium. Under the hood, the Egoista includes a 5.2-liter V10 engine and 600 horsepower.
“It represents hedonism taken to the extreme, it is a car without compromises, in a word: egoista (selfish),” said De Silva.
