Everything You Need to Know About the Lamborghini Egoista

Lamborghini Egoista

Since 1963, Lamborghini has been staying true to its promise of creating only the best and most refined grand touring cars in the automotive industry. Lamborghini has produced some pretty impressive automobiles along its way, and in celebration of their 50th anniversary back in 2013, Lamborghini outdid itself with a concept car that rattled all other concept cars in their cages. The Lamborghini Egoista was that concept car, and it exists to this day only to remind us all of exactly what kind of manufacturer Lamborghini truly is.

Egoista literally stands for “selfish” in Italian. We’ll see why this is important later on, but first let’s reminisce about that day this world bore witness to the Egoista for the very first time. It happened at Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary Gala in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The Egoista was unveiled on the last day of the amazing Grande Giro tour through Italy. According to Walter De Silva, VW’s head of design, the Lamborghini Egoista was “hedonism taken to the extreme.” It was a car made for pleasure but only for that of the driver’s alone. After it was revealed, truth in the statement came to light as it became apparent that the Egoista is made with only one cockpit—the one that will seat one driver and no one else.

Inspired by Lamborghini’s trademark symbol, the concept car is styled with a bull-like exterior that sometimes appear more like a bull ready to charge. It also appears to be stealthy, like a fighter jet ready to attack. There are no protruding parts anywhere on its upper part the body, so aerodynamics and other engine functions are all managed by automatic flaps that function according to a variety of scenarios and situations. You can also see the variety of colored lights that’s normal for this car alone. All these lights continue to make this car appear more like an aircraft than anything else.

It’s an interesting take considering that the Lamborghini Egoista is heavily influenced by aircrafts. This is obvious off the bat from its center-mounted front seat position that’s rare in cars apart from racers (and Porsche 997). Taking more fromracers, the concept car also has a removable steering wheel, four-point seatbelts, and a heads-up display. It’s a hassle to get into this car, with drivers having to manipulate their bodies just to enter or exit this vehicle through a domed roof that flips open. But the Lamborghini Egoista sure makes up for all that work. Let’s just say that the Egoista is equipped with 600 HP 5.2-liter V10. If you aren’t impressed with that in an itsy bitsy vehicle, you should be. The body of the Egoista is made up of carbon fiber, aluminum, and anti radar material; it has anti-glare glass as well. It’s light as ever and can probably take off to space if it wanted to.

Lamborghini has had many concepts recently and in previous years, and some of these concepts even made their way into somewhat limited production after their reveal. However, the Lamborghini Egoista is more than likely a one and done deal. It sure is one car that has no compromises, but having that characteristic costs a bit of money. To those who created this concept car, it goes way beyond money. As quoted from the car’s release, this is what was said: “The Egoista is pure emotion, Never Never Land, which no one can ever possess, and which will always remain a dream, for everyone.” It’s surely a nice and nostalgic thought, but we’re sure that if this concept car were ever drawn up for production, people will line up to buy one no matter what its cost. Funnily enough, though,there’s no price information on this concept car—not when it was revealed and not now at 5 years later. The Lamborghini Egoista has no price because it was never meant to be for sale. That notion of selfishness we mentioned has once again come up, as this concept car teases us about itself and teases the fact that it just can’t be had. You can, however, see this exotic car in person as it is currently on display at The Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agatat Bolognese—the exact place where it was first revealed.
