The Lamborghini Egoista is a concept car which was unveiled for
Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. The fully functioning model is
based on the Gallardo. In Italian “egoista“ means “selfish“.
According to its designer Walter de Silva, the Egoista
“represents hedonism taken to the extreme.
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.
Lamborghini Egoista Interior
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.
Engine Specs and performance
Under the hood of the Egoista is a 5.2-liter V-10 engine shared
with the Gallardo. This engine puts out an impressive 600
horsepower, which is by 20-30 more than in Gallardo. Too bad
that Lamborghini wouldn’t give more information on the
drivetrain. Nevertheless, it should be safe to assume that the
engine is coupled with a dual-clutch automated manual
transmission. According to unofficial specifications 0-60
mph acceleration reaches for 3 sec and a top speed of 202 mph.
Price and release date
The Lamborghini Egoista is a product of pure hedonism, which no
one will ever be able to possess. Due to its extreme looks and
features, it is clear that this vehicle will never make its way
The car is on display at the Lamborghini museum located in
