Car requires a fighter-jet sequence of movements to get in and out.
The Lamborghini Egoista concept car, which the company gave itself as a birthday present during its 50th anniversary celebrations last year, has just arrived back in Italy after a short world tour. It will be briefly displayed at the company's headquarters showroom before going on permanent display in the Sant'Agata Bolognese Lamborghini museum. The car's name literally translates to "selfish", which makes a lot of sense considering its one-seater formation.
The Egoista was designed with fighter-jet inspiration, which contributed to its cockpit design and its stealthy, radar-resistant paint. It is equipped with a Gallardo-sourced 5.2-liter V10 engine, tuned to deliver 592 horsepower. Entering and exiting the vehicle requires the selfish driver to "remove the steering wheel and leave it on the dashboard, open the dome by actuating an electronic control and climb out of the cockpit with a specific series of movements, as required in fighter jet aircraft", the company says.
