Lamborghini Egoista concept looks like a space fighter

At the closure of its 50th anniversary Grande Giro tour, Lamborghini unveiled a new high-end concept that looks like something space Batman would drive.

We've seen some pretty out-there limited-edition cars from luxury manufacturer Lamborghini, but its newest may have just taken the biscuit and sped off with it.

The Egoista, unveiled at the Grande Giro closing gala, was designed by Volkswagen head of design Walter De Silva, and is designed to be the ultimate in self-indulgence.

"This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum," De Silva said. "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)."

The single-person cockpit (we hesitate to call it anything else), angled, crystalline chassis and orange highlights remind us of nothing so much as a space fighter — especially once you check out the launch video below.

Only one Egoista will ever be made: Lamborghini's anniversary gift to Lamborghini.

It's funny how you can still see the tortured carcass of the old Countach even in this mutated attempt at an F-35/LaMans/Aventador mashup.
They stick to that old house design, probably because it was what really put them on the map. I doubt anything since then has made as bug a splash. But at least all these reinventions are better than the plastic crap they used to plaster the late Countaches with.
