In 2013, Lamborghini produced the Egoista as their 50th anniversary concept car. The Lamborghini Egoista’s basis is the well-known Gallardo. Walter de Silva is responsible for the Egoista’s design. Many people claim this is Lamborghini’s “Batmobile” as it quite looks like one. With a mid-engine placement and all-wheel drive, the Egoista displays the usual specifications of a Lamborghini.
Lamborghini Gallardo 5.2-Liter V10 with 600 Horsepower
In the engine bay, the Egoista sports a 5.2-liter V10 with 600 horsepower. As this car is a concept vehicle, it will not make mass production or be for sale on the market. Although there is no price, an estimate of the Lamborghini Egoista is around $4 million USD, similar to the Veneno. Now, the Egoista is on display at the Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. Remember, the sole reason for this vehicles creation is to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary as a company.
Race Car Features & Specifications
On the interior, the Egoista is a true sports car. Surprisingly, the steering wheel’s removal is necessary to enter and exit the vehicle. That may sound like a tedious task, but with a racing design it is built to be efficient and quick. Next, the Lamborghini Egoista has a lighting layout like an airplane. There are also active aerodynamic panels that raise and lower to maximize downforce and stability.
Egoista Stands for “Selfish”
In Italian, Egoista stands for “selfish”. Yes, it really does mean selfish. Some may say it is quite selfish for Lamborghini to withhold this car from market. On the other hand, some think Lamborghini is crazy for building this car in the first place. Either way, the car can be seen on display in the museum mentioned above.
The Lamborghini Egoista Represents a Bull Ready to Charge
Overall, the Lamborghini Egoista is quite a unique sports car. The design is meant to resemble a bull getting ready to charge. As you know, hopefully, the bull is central part of the Lamborghini logo. Regardless of it’s selfish name, the Egoista is a spectacle for all to see. If you ever wanted to see a Lamborghini Batmobile, here it is. In the end, the Egoista will remain an extremely rare collectible car held by the Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. Company. For those who don’t know, S.p.A. stands for “Società per azioni” which translates to “public company”.
