To help celebrate the Italian supercar builder’s 50th anniversary, Lamborghini has introduced the new Egoista (translated, it means “selfish”) one-seater hypercar.

Unveiled in Sant’Agata Bolognese by its creator, Volkswagen’s head of design, Walter De Silva, the Egoista doesn’t so much whisper “look at me” as it does scream it at decibel levels dangerous to the human ear.

“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.”

Built almost entirely from carbon fibre and aluminium, the Egoista has a sliding overhead canopy, rather than something as old-fashioned as doors, while instrumentation is replaced by a head-up display, projected onto the curved windshield to ensure the driver never takes his or her eyes off the road.

The unveiling of the Egoista is the latest high-profile event organized to mark the first 50 years of the Italian supercar brand.
