A few days ago we reported about a new extreme vehicle called the Lamborghini Egoista concept, which was even more daring in terms of design than the Lamborghini Veneno. As you would imagine the vehicle has be getting a mixed reaction, with some people saying how ugly it is, to others suggesting it is pure genius.
During the unveiling of the Egoista those who attended not only got a chance to take some close up photos, but also got to see the canopy open and the engine roar to life. That’s right a canopy, as this single-seat vehicle has a jet fighter kind of cockpit. While this may sound awesome, you should see how long it takes for the canopy to come down and seal itself.
If you love to show off then this is the vehicle for you, but don’t try to pick any women up in one, as you won’t be able to give them a ride. This means you will have to blow any interest away, which you can do the moment you start that engine up, which you can see for yourself below.
The engine really sounds sweet, which is not surprising considering it’s a 5.2-liter V10 pushing out around 600 horsepower. Even though there are some of you who do not care for the Egoista much, there will be others demanding the chance for a Lamborghini Egoista test drive.
This is because they want the feeling of being a jet fighter without having to leave the road. Okay, so we have to be practical because the likelihood of the Lamborghini Egoista entering production is pretty slim, but it’s a nice thought. We’re all kids at heart, and while this is not the best car in the world in terms of design, style and technology, it certainly makes us feel like a child once again, as this would be the perfect poster car, like the Countach, because while this car looked awesome, driving it was a completely different story.
