As we expressed yesterday, we're fully on board with Lamborghini's new Egoista concept. There isn't one word that could really describe this animal, because nobody really knows what it is. It's made for selfish people, it's got orange rims, it has a specific place for stepping into its single-seat Apache helicopter cockpit that has gadgets that look like they could launch rockets, and its nose is sharper than a pitchfork.
Oh, and the cockpit, unlike we thought, doesn't operate as its own vehicle, but it was built as a separate piece, again, like fighter jets and military helicopters.
"The cockpit, made completely of carbon fiber and aluminum, represents a sort of survival cell, allowing the driver to isolate and protect themselves from external elements," Head of Design for the Volkswagen Group Walter De Silva explained."We kept an eye on the future when designing the Egoista, with the idea that its cockpit could have been taken from a jet aircraft and integrated into a road vehicle, to provide a different travel option."
As rumored last night, the car has a 5.2L V10 that puts out 600 horsepower. Other features include lights that determine and analyze all of the cars surroundings to better adapt to conditions, and antiradar materials used throughout the body and rims. Even the windows are anti-glare. Hit the jump for the full press release, which explains every detail of this 50th birthday celebration car.
