Lamborghini’s Egoista concept it showed at the gala dinner for its 50th anniversary last year is one of the most extreme and outlandish designs the Sant’Agata-based company has ever put out, which for Lamborghini, is saying a lot. Unfortunately, us regular folk who didn’t get invited to Lamborghini’s exclusive celebration last year never got to see the Egoista up close, but we now have a chance to after the automaker announced the one-off model will be put on display in the Lamborghini Museum in Bologna.
The futuristic single-seater Egoista, with its aircraft-style greenhouse and aeronautical-inspired body lines, will certainly stand out in the museum, even alongside unique models like the 1 of 20 Reventon. The car was developed by head of Volkswagen Group Design by Walter De Silva and features a Gallardo-sourced 5.2-liter V10 with 600 horsepower. The body is made of lightweight aluminium and carbon fiber and is styled to represent the “embodiment of pure emotion and extreme hedonism,” De Silva says.
The Egoista returns to Lamborghini exactly one year after it was introduced to the public. It will see a short stint of being on display in Lamborghinis headquarters and will then be transferred over to the museum for the public to see. It will be shown alongside other notable modern-day Lamborghini concepts such as the Sesto Elemento, Estoque and Miura.
