Lamborghini is an Italian car manufacturer known for creating some of the most amazing and generally outrageous cars. For their 50th anniversary they have decided to make a unique car to celebrate – the results is the Lamborghini Egoista concept car – probably the most unusual car that you have ever seen. They have unveiled the car about two years ago and since then it is on display in the Lamborghini museum, located in the Sant’Agata Bolognese. The good news is that the Italian manufacturer plans to put this model into production – as the 2017 Lamborghini Egoista.
2017 Lamborghini Egoista Exterior
As we have mentioned before, the 2017 Lamborghini Egoista is a very unusual car. According to the designer of the car, Walter de Silva, when looking from the side, Egoista should resemble a bull that is ready to charge (which fits perfectly, because bulls are very important for Lamborghini).
Furthermore, lots of exterior of the Egoista is designed to resemble a fighter jet. Actually, the Italian manufacturer claims that the fighter jets were used as inspiration for the overall look of the 2017 Lamborghini Egoista. First of all, the 2017 Lamborghini Egoista can only take one person, since it has a unique one-seat cockpit that has a canopy door, which can be completely removed. There are lots of other details that have been inspired by fighter jets – for example, headlights, sidemarkers and indicators on side, paint used for the body and the wheels (the designer decided to use paint that is used for fighter jets) as well as the anti-radar used for the body and the wheels.
Furthermore, the Italian manufacturer has enabled the bodywork to raise and lower in order to make sure that the car has optimum downforce and stability at all times, thanks to the active aerodynamic panels.
Lamborghini Egoista 2017 Interior
The 2017 Lamborghini Egoista will be a one-seater – an unique car in every sense – that is why it is called Egoista (which literally means selfish). The design of the interior is what you expect from a car like this – it has a steering wheel from a plane, digital dashboard and heads up display (just like those in fighter jets) and lots of small knobs and buttons throughout the whole cabin.
The Italian manufacturer has chosen the materials of the best quality – the orange leather for the seat and for the trim panels and lots of aluminum while the carbon fiber used for the cockpit is also visible.
Lamborghini Egoista Engine
It is not known which engine exactly will be in the 2017 Lamborghini Egoista. The concept car that was shown was based on the current Gallardo and because of that it has a 5.2l V10 engine that produces 600 horsepower.
However, the production model might feature an even stronger engine or a combination of a petrol engine and an electric motor.
2017 Lamborghini Egoista Price and Release Date
The price of the 2017 Lamborghini Egoista is not known, but some experts believe that it will not be less than $1 million.
The 2017 Lamborghini Egoista should go on sale by the end of 2016.
