A Momentary Flow

Updating Worldviews one World at a time

The crew from Sant’Agata has lost its collective mind.

There’s no other explanation for the Lamborghini Egoist concept. Only Lamborghini, a company that has no interest whatsoever in subtlety, could, and would, name a car “The Egoist.” This rolling compensator is a single-seat, four-wheeled birthday present to itself in honor of its 50th anniversary. Start racking up the decades and odd things can happen to your mental faculties. This is 600 horsepower worth of proof.

“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,” said Walter De Silva, the VW Group’s head of design, at a private unveiling in Italy.

Mr. De Silva: “Extreme” is putting it incredibly lightly, and as a reminder, “egoist” roughly translates to “selfish.”

This car is a mashup of Speed Racer’s Mach5, a Matchbox car and Apache helicopter. It’s the sort of thing you see scribbled in the margins of a 10-year-old’s math homework. Words fail to describe the complete and utter insanity of this maniacal mishmash of angles and creases, stuffed with a 5.2-liter V10. It’s the road-going equivalent of a cheetah on roller skates with a ballistic missile strapped to its back. (via 'The Egoist' Is Proof Lamborghini Has Lost Its Mind | Autopia | Wired.com)
