Lamborghini Egoista Concept

• The third most expensive Lamborghini in the world is the Egoista Concept. The car was unveiled by Lamborghini to celebrate its 50th anniversary. It was appropriately named ‘Egoista,’ which means ‘selfish’ in Italian, due to its unique one-seat cockpit that was inspired by the Apache helicopter. It was designed by Lamborghinis chief of design, Walter de Silva, and was based on a Lamborghini Gallardo.

Design

• The canopy door is completely removable, and the steering wheel has to be removed to be able to get in and out. It comes with a 5.2-liter V10 engine, which produces approximately 600 hp. Just like the Miura Concept, the Egoista Concept is now on display in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, at the Lamborghini Museum.

• The Lamborghini Egoista has a unique one-seat cockpit, which is similar to that of a modern fighter jet. The unique exterior of the Lamborghini Egoista is meant to resemble a bull ready to charge if looked at from the side.[1] The lighting resembles that of a modern airplane, with sidemarkers and indicators on the sides and top of the car as well as front and rear.

• The bodywork consists of active aerodynamic panels that raise and lower for optimum downforce and stability. The body and wheels are made of antiradar material to even more identify with fighter jets.

Performance

• As you would expect from a Lamborghini, the Egoista includes a powerful V10 engine. Its 5.2 liters of displacement can output up to 600 horsepower. The engine resides directly behind the driver in a mid-engine format. The Egoista is said to have a 0-60 mph time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). It also has a minimum dry weight of 2094 lb (950 kg).

Production

• $3.9 million. But the Egoista, as its name implies, is for Lamborghini's own use. It won't be offered for sale. Instead, it's a deliberately conspicuous reminder of the longstanding ethos of the Italian company.
