We have first seen Lamborghini Egoista in 2013 as a concept car. The Italian manufacturer decided to produce a car for their 50th anniversary. The Egoista is one of the most unique vehicles that we have ever seen and it really is special. The actual concept was based on the current Lamborghini Gallardo and because of that they are similar in size, while the design is a whole another story. The first model is currently sitting in the Lamborghini museum, but according to the reports, we could see a 2016 Lamborghini Egoista very soon.
2016 Lamborghini Egoista Exterior
The new Lamborghini Egoista should be very similar to the concept that was previously shown. First thing you need to know is that the Egoista is a mid-engine hatch-top one-seater coupe. The unique one-seat cockpit was inspired by the cockpits of modern fighter jets and it has canopy door that can be removed completely. Furthermore, driver has to remove the steering wheel completely when entering or exiting the car. According to the Walter de Silva, designer that designed the Lamborghini Egoista 2016 – the exterior of this car, when looked from the side, should resemble a bull ready to charge.
The concept car was painted to look like a jet fighter, but this is not all – the Italian manufacturer even used anti-radar materials for the body and for the wheels, to identify it more with jet fighters. Apart from that, the 2016 Lambo Egoista will have bodywork that will consist of many active panels that should raise and lower to improve the aerodynamics, down force and stability.
The Lamborghini Egoista 2016 will most probably be offered in the same colors as the original concept – grey for most of the body, with black and orange accents – even the wheels are orange.
Interior of the new Lamborghini Egoista
As we have mentioned before, the 2016 Lamborghini Egoista has a one-seat cockpit which was made to resemble the cockpit of a jet fighter – it has a heads up display, just like those in fighter jets, a unique leather-wrapped steering wheel that is practically identical to the controllers used in airplanes and an all-digital dashboard which is used to display speed, RPM and many other data related to the performance of the car.
The 2016 Lamborghini Egoista has only one seat which is in orange color, just like the most of the interior. Furthermore, the Italian manufacturer decided to include Egoista branding on the inside.
Lamborghini Egoista 2016 Engine
It is not known exactly which engine will the new Lamborghini Egoista have, but the concept that was shown in 2013 had a 5.2l V10 engine that produces around 600 horsepower. The 2016 Lamborghini Egoista will most probably have an automatic transmission and just like the concept car – it is going to have all-wheel drive.
2016 Lamborghini Egoista Price
The Lamborghini Egoista 2016 will certainly have a high price – experts believe that it is most likely going to cost over $1 million.
Lamborghini Egoista 2016 Release date
The 2016 Lamborghini Egoista will most probably be unveiled by the end of the year, while there is no information when will it go into production.
