Lamborghini celebrated its 50th anniversary in Sant’Agata Bolognese with the debut of a new concept known as the Egoista.

“I am very attached to this Italian brand, being an Italian myself,” said Walter De Silva’, head of Volkswagen Group Design “I wanted to pay homage to and think up a vehicle to underline the fact that Lamborghinis have always been made with passion, and with the heart more than the head.”

Power for the Lamborghini Egoista comes from a powerful 5.2-liter V10 engine supplying it with 600 horsepower.

“This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum,” said De Silva. “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 Lamborghini Egoista seats only the driver – there are no passengers allowed. “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.”

No, the Egoista will not be produced.
