Lamborghini Egoista Concept Car
Legendary designer Walter De Silva, the Head of Design for the Volkswagen Group is responsible for the single-seater ‘Egoista’. The 5.2-litre engine produces 600bhp and the design makes this car rather look like a futuristic combat-jet.
According to Walter De Silva: “This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum. It is designed purely for hyper-sophisticated people who want only the most extreme and special things in the world. It represents hedonism taken to the extreme, it is a car without compromises, in a word: egoista (selfish)”. Nonetheless it’s very unlikely that the ‘Egoista’ will ever see production.
“It’s as if Ferruccio Lamborghini were saying: I’m going to put the engine in the back, I don’t want a passenger. I want it for myself, and I want it as I imagine it to be. It is a fanatical vehicle, Egoista fits it well. “If Lamborghinis are cars for the few, this one goes further. It is a car for itself, a gift from Lamborghini to Lamborghini, resplendent in its solitude. The Egoista is pure emotion, Never Never Land, which no one can ever possess, and which will always remain a dream, for everyone.””
