traditionally supercars have been thought to be selfish rides, but the recently unveiled Lamborghini Egoista Concept Supercar takes that selfishness to a whole new height. in fact, even before you look into its cockpit, its name already says it all for egoista is Italian for ‘selfish’. looking further, it is indeed a self-centered ride with its single-seater configuration. created to mark the 50th anniversary of the raging bull marque, the Egoista is driven by a 5.2-liter V10 engine with 600 horses on the tap, but that’s not entirely the awesome part about the Egoista because as we all know a screaming powerful engine is a norm to the Italian brand. the vehicle is said to be inspired by the Apache helicopter and just the Apache’s ejecting cockpit, the Egoista features a removable carbon fiber and aluminum cockpit that keeps the driver safely cocooned within.

on the inside, it has an uncluttered futuristic cockpit complete with a lone bucket seat and four-point harness and a removable steering necessary for ingress and egress, and a heads-up display (HUD). and since it is of carbon fiber and aluminum construction, no-walk zones, just like those found on the airliners (near the flaps of the wings, if you haven’t had a clue), are playfully included to further reinforce its close association with the world of aeronautics. other key features include a dynamic aerodynamic body that adapts to the driving conditions, rear flaps that automatically deploys at high speeds for increased stability, a slew of air intakes to aid in cooling the beast’s heart, LED clearance lights in place of traditional headlamps and a myriad of lighting bits that make this vehicle looks almost UFO-like in the dark, and last but not least, the body and wheels are made from special antiradar materials, which is yet another hint of aviation inclination.
