Lamborghini Egoista
Walter De Silva's homage for Lamborghini's 50th anniversary

An emotional moment in
Sant?Agata Bolognese yesterday at the culmination of the gala celebrating
Lamborghini's 50th anniversary: Walter De Silva's incredible vehicle made its
entry in front of a thousand invitees, the Head of Design for the Volkswagen
Group's homage to celebrating the House of the Raging Bull's half century. "I
am very attached to this Italian brand, being an Italian myself. 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," said an emotional De Silva.
Indeed the Egoista, as the vehicle has been christened, is a car forged from a
passion for innovation and alternative solutions, the same passion which has
always set the Lamborghini brand apart. "This is a car made for one person
only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the
maximum. 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)," De Silva further explained.
The supercar's debut was equally spectacular, with a cinematic entry
announced by a trailer projected onto the nine big screens in the room. The
stage was transformed into a landing strip, with a top model in a flight suit
guiding the Egoista's arrival with ground crew light paddles, and the roar of
the V10 engine shaking the 20-meter-tall tensioned event structure: this is
the spectacle the VIP guests were treated to when Lamborghini President
and CEO Stephan Winkelmann entered at the wheel of the Egoista, before
inviting its creator, Walter De Silva, to join him on stage.

Concept and technology
Powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine supplying it with 600 horsepower, the
Lamborghini Egoista is an intentionally extreme and unusual vehicle with
absolutely unique characteristics, created by the Volkswagen Group design
team ? Alessandro Dambrosio responsible for the exterior and Stefan Sielaff
for the interior, in particular. De Silva's team chose to create a single-seater,
pushing all the characteristics in Lamborghini's make-up meaning pure driving
pleasure, performance and style beyond their limits. The cockpit, designed like
a tailor-made suit for the driver, is a removable section which, once combined
with the rest of the vehicle, creates a perfect technical, mechanical and
aerodynamic unit. Inspiration, as per Lamborghini tradition, once again comes
from the world of aviation, and in particular the Apache helicopter, where the
cockpit can be ejected in an emergency.
"The cockpit, made completely of carbon fiber and aluminum, represents a sort of
survival cell, allowing the driver to isolate and protect themselves from external
elements," De Silva explained."We kept an eye on the future when designing the
Egoista, with the idea that its cockpit could have been taken from a jet aircraft and
integrated into a road vehicle, to provide a different travel option."

The design

The exterior is characterized by two fundamental aspects: its architecture,
and the materials used. The design is determined by a highly muscular
structure, in which empty and solid areas fit together with strength and
vigor. The bodywork is dominated, on its sides, by the stylized profile of a
bull preparing to charge, its horns lowered. The bull is driving towards the
front wheels, conferring a futuristic dynamism and lines which are already, in
themselves, highly aggressive. Naturally, this is a homage, a bold stylistic
citation which can only be a reworking of the Lamborghini brand icon, the
well-known raging bull. The challenge of efficiently inserting the Lamborghini
symbol as an integral part of the bodywork was met courageously and
artistically. The plan view reveals a trimaran profile, where the central hull
forms a unique section with the cockpit, underlined by the carbon-fiber cover
on the front hood.
The upper part of the vehicle does not have aerodynamic appendages, but
rather flaps integrated in the bodywork profile which act automatically
depending on the driving conditions. Two rear flaps activate automatically at
high speeds to increase stability, while a series of air intakes on the back of
the engine hood provides the cooling air flow to the powerful V10 power
plant. While the front of the vehicle has a profile intended to increase
downforce, the rear is fully open with the mechanics in view, reducing weight
but also with the result of creating a more aggressive look. The Lamborghini
Egoista's lights are more like an aircraft's than a road vehicle's. It does not
have traditional headlights, rather LED clearance lights which determine its
position not just on a single plane such as the road, but rather in three
dimensions, as is required in airspace. Two white front lights, two red rear
lights, a red flashing light in the upper part of the tail, two orange bull's eyes
as side markers, and a further two lights on the roof, red on the left and
green on the right, make this four-wheeled UFO unique even in the dark.
Finally, hidden behind the front air intakes at the base of the join between
the central body and the two side sections, are two powerful xenon
headlamps, two eagle's eyes able to scan the darkness for great distances.
As it is made from lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon-fiber,
the vehicle has no-walk zones, duly marked like on airliners. The parallels
with the world of aeronautics do not end here, however, as the body is made
from a special antiradar material, and the glass is anti-glare with an orange
gradation. The rims are also made from antiradar material, flat and rough,
embellished with carbon-fiber plates to improve their aerodynamics.

The cockpit's interior is extremely rational, its functionality taken to the extreme.
There is a racing seat with a four-point seatbelt, each strip a different color, the
airbags, and the bare minimum of instruments. The focal point of these is a headup
display, typical of jet fighters. To get out of the vehicle, the driver must
remove the steering wheel and rest it on the dashboard, open the dome with an
electronic command, stand up in their seat, sit down on a precise point of the lefthand
bodywork, then swivel their legs 180 degrees from the inside of the cockpit
to the outside of the vehicle. At this point they can set their feet down and stand
up. Even in getting out of the vehicle, the Lamborghini Egoista requires a pilot
more than a driver, a real top gun.

The philosophy
The Egoista contains, in Walter De Silva's opinion, all the product criteria which
are part of Lamborghini's make-up. "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
If Lamborghinis are cars for the few, this one goes further. It is a car for itself, a
gift from Lamborghini to Lamborghini, resplendent in its solitude. The Egoista is
pure emotion, Never Never Land, which no one can ever possess, and which will
always remain a dream, for everyone.
