The Lamborghini Egoista:
Robbie Dickson
Taking its name from the Italian word for “selfish” due to its single-seat cockpit, the Egoista adopts Lamborghini design traits, but looks like the result of a Veneno and KTM X-Bow mating while on LSD – with some of Batman’s Tumbler thrown in for good measure.Lamborghini says the cockpit’s design was inspired by that of an Apache attack helicopter, and comes complete with a four-point racing harness, airbags and head-up display. In place of the familiar scissor doors, there’s a jet-style canopy and the driver needs to remove the steering wheel in order to exit (like in a formula racing car). The eccentrically-styled but aerodynamic shape is constructed from aluminum and carbon fiber, and stands as perhaps the ultimate expression of Lamborghini design to date. It’s muscular and angular throughout, with a front end inspired by a pair of lowered bull’s horns ready to charge their target.
Power comes from the Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V10 tuned up to 600 horsepower and mounted in a form summed up by its chief designer thusly: “It’s as if Ferruccio Lamborghini were saying: I’m going to put the engine in the back, I don’t want a passenger. I want it for myself”
