Lamborghini Egoista: now on display


Lamborghini wrapped up its extensive 50th anniversary celebrations last year - which took in a 350-car hotride around Italy - with the reveal of a one-off, single seater Gallardo concept.

That car is called the Lamborghini Egoista. The Lamborghini Egoista is an anti-radar material packed bizarro, and is available for permanent public viewing at the Lamborghini museum.

Yes, that means you lot out there can go and look at it; touch it, smell it.

If you're still sat there reading these words and not dashing off to Sant'Agata on the first chariot out*, then you might like to know about the Egoista. Based on the Gallardo and packing a modified version of its 5.2-litre V10, it produces a nice round 600bhp.

That exterior though, woah. It takes cues from an Apache helicopter, with side flanks designed so as to represent a ‘bull preparing to charge, horns lowered'. There's no aero on top, but flaps in the bodywork that open or close automatically depending on driving conditions.

It's all made of carbon fibre, aluminium and aeronautical-spec anti-radar material, with a single seat, racing harness and head-up display. It'll go in display first in the Lamborghini showroom, and then the museum.

So, would you mind telling us what you're still doing there reading this? GO GO GO!
