Aviation theme concept Lamborghini Egoista: the most interesting about the car for three million dollars
The Lamborghini Egoista is a luxury hypercar, at the cost of three million dollars, which by its appearance and interior decoration is more like a spaceship than a car. The model is attractive to everyone, but the most interesting thing in it is the idea. This hypercar fully justifies its "selfish" name. After all, he is single.
Briefly about the model
The development of the Lamborghini Egoista was Walter Maria de Silva - the head of the design team. After the presentation of the concept, the specialist said that he was inspired to create such an uncompromising appearance by the aviation theme and the Apache helicopter of the US Air Force.
Of course, in the image of this model can be traced quite a few generic features of Lamborghini. But there are lots of unusual features. Take, for example, unusual lighting equipment, atypical body shapes, powerful rear and "space" front.However, you don't even need to comment on your appearance, you just have to look at the photos provided.
In the Lamborghini Egoista there are a lot of interesting details that are not only visually attractive, but also functional. For example, splashes at high speeds rise, due to which the downforce of the rear wheels to the road surface increases.
The body, made of lightweight carbon fiber, got an aerodynamic stylish body kit with a front splitter, a rear 4-rib diffuser, an adjustable spoiler and large side skirts. By the way, one of the sources says that this model is built on the Gallardo platform. So they have identical dimensions.
By the way, you can get inside the Lamborghini Egoista hypercar, the photo of which is provided in the article, can only be opened by folding the cap, made of orange anti-reflective glass. Such a decision is again a reference to aviation. In terminology, this cap is called a lantern.
Salon hypercar Lamborghini Egoista deserves special attention. This is an example of a perfectly organized automotive space. Everything is thought out and ergonomically, there are no unnecessary details, each control is located where it belongs.
Visually, the inner space resembles a fighter cockpit.First of all, attention is drawn to the multifunctional steering wheel, which looks like a steering wheel. Slightly above you can see a translucent display, which displays the momentary data of the onboard computer - it looks like an imitation of the sight.
The chair deserves special praise. Once in it, a person does not want to leave him. It is very comfortable and soft, the design is similar to the seats that are installed on military helicopters for pilots. The pronounced lateral and lumbar support can be seen with the naked eye, as is the active headrest.
In general, the interior is impressive. It is also worth noting that the cabin is completely made of aluminum and carbon fiber. The creators say that it is a rescue capsule that reliably protects and isolates the driver from external stimuli.
What is under the hood?
The Lamborghini Egoista specifications are very powerful. Under the hood of this concept, there is a 10-cylinder V-shaped 5.2-liter engine, which is well known to all by the Gallardo model. That's just the power of the unit was forced to 600 "horses", which allowed to improve the dynamic performance. The motor is controlled, of course, by a robotic 7-step “automatic”.
The maximum speed of the concept is 350 km / h (a limiter is installed). The mark of 100 km / h it reaches only 2.4 seconds after the start. Such indicators are impressive. However, the developers wanted to achieve such dynamics. They have achieved weight loss up to 950 kilograms and have done everything possible to achieve an increase in aerodynamic quality.
By the way, if this car were exploited, it would consume more than 25 liters of gasoline per 100 "urban" kilometers. However, the cost of fuel would hardly have bothered a person who bought a hypercar for more than $ 3 million.
The characteristics of the Lamborghini Egoista are really very powerful. But it is worth knowing not only about the amount of horsepower produced by the engine, but also about the equipment.
Components of this car is very modest. Perhaps the developers did not equip the machine with various systems and accessories, precisely because it is a concept. However, it is possible to note something with attention.
This model has a progressive protection against deformation impact, wide 4-point belts on a sports adjustable seat, a removable steering wheel and an emergency airbag.The concept LED headlights illuminate the maximum space in front of the car.
This is the whole list of equipment with which this exclusive model is equipped. Of course, for three million dollars it is logical to demand more from the car. However, this car can not be purchased for personal use. Although initially there were suggestions that after showing the concept of the public, someone would buy it. Those who wished to be sure were, but in the end an exclusive car found its place in the Lamborghini museum.
