Lamborghini has taken the automotive world by storm yet again this year, unveiling what it calls the Egoista in SantíAgata Bolognese yesterday as it finished off its festivities to celebrate the brandís 50th anniversary.

Little more than rumors and poor iPhone photos at first, we now have full details on Lamboís single-seater supercar.

Designed by Walter de Silva, the Egoista is simply one of the most extreme and radical exotics to have ever existed. It is powered by a 5.2-liter, V10 with 600 hp, but while thatís rather tame compared to other recently released supercars, the single-seater is designed for pure driving pleasure.

The ****pit, made entirely of carbon fiber and aluminum, was inspired by an Apache helicopter. According to De Silva, it represents a survival cell, isolating the driver and protecting it from external elements. But itís really the exterior of the Egoista that is shocking. The goal was to have it represent a raging bull preparing to charge, with its horns lowered. Flaps were integrated into the bodywork profile that act automatically depending on the driving conditions. Lighting on the Egoista is more fitting on an aircraft than a vehicle with LED clearance lights that determine its position in three dimensions rather than on a single plane.
