Earth's Very Own Spaceship: The Lamborghini Egoista!

Earth's Very Own Spaceship: The Lamborghini Egoista!

When Lamborghini released the insane Veneno at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, one couldn’t be blamed for thinking the automaker had lost its mind. After all, the Geneva Motor Show held the debuts of two all-new hypercars in the form of the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 and there Lamborghini was, with an insane limited-run hypercar with no real fuel-saving or emission cutting technologies in sight.

As if Lamborghini had to prove it’s the bad-boy of the automotive industry anymore, it revealed the Lamborghini Egoista Concept just a few months after the Veneno at the company’s 50th anniversary Grande Giro.

The unique design of the Egoista is inspired by a Apache helicopter. Whereas the helicopter pilot can eject from his vehicle, the Egoista cockpit is secured firmly to the Egoista chassis. Carbon fiber and aluminum line the interior and the exterior panels. Visually, it looks very similar to the Tremontana. It has a highly muscular structure and, what nautical designers would call a trimaran profile. In laymans design language, the Egoista gets a central hull flanked by two balancing ‘hulls’.

  1. Well they are not known for releasing model after model. I bet we are seeing so many one-off designs and side models though because of the massive about of money they must be taking in for the success of the Aventador. They made over 2,000 of them already.

    I think the Aventador was a real sucess and a much needed jump for Lamborghini, but they are going to have to come out with a high-tech possible hybrid car in the future if they are going to stay competitive. Imagine a V12 supercar with added power from batteries! Knowing Lamborghini though, they are probably going to come up with something even more revolutionary than hybrid tech…
