Lamborghini Egoista

Lamborghini unveiled the Egoista concept, a car which may not be in the scheme of things for a launch soon but already promises it’s would-be owner real exclusivity with its design. The styling has been inspired from the Apache helicopter and the bodywork, in Lamborghini’s speak is “a bull preparing to charge, its horns lowered”. There are no aerodynamic appendages on the top but flaps integrated into the bodywork, which depending on the driving conditions, act automatically. At high speeds, two flaps at the rear activate automatically to increase stability. The headlamps and taillights are LED clearance lamps which work in a 3D fashion. Additionally, at the front, hidden from view are two Xenon lights. Those cool orange rims that you see in the picture are made from antiradar materials and to increase aerodynamics, have carbon-fibre plates.

Just when we thought our eyes had recovered from the made and crazy angles an cuts of the Veneno, Lambo shoves at us this latest concept- the Egoista, and guess what? Its even edgier!

The unveiling of this concept comes hot on the heels of the news that Lamborghini will be manufacturing the Urus SUV by 2017

A single racing seat with a four-point seatbelt adorns the aluminium-carbon fiber interiors. Just like in jet fighters, there is a head-up display. As it is, supercar owners usually have an ardous task getting in and out of their vehicles, the Lamborghini Egoista concept takes it a few notches higher. In proper race-car style, the driver will have to remove the steering wheel and perform a few callisthenic acts before he can get out of the car.
Now the engine. The Lamborghini Egoista is powered by a 600PS 5.2-litre V10 motor and while the Italian car maker hasn’t divulged any details about the 0-100 times or even the top speed, expect the hypercar to toe the lines of the Veneno and Aventador with sub 3-second timings.
