Many automakers talk of building driver-focused machines; for its 50th birthday, Lamborghini is taking that idea to its logical extreme through the Egoista Concept. The commemorative supercar centers on a cabin that only allows room for the driver and a bare minimum of instruments, eliminating pesky distractions such as passengers and stereos. Lamborghini isn’t exaggerating when it likens the interior to a jet fighter’s cockpit — the pilot gets a heads-up display as a matter of course, and has to climb over the car body just to crawl inside. We’d certainly like to give the narrow-purpose vehicle a spin when there’s a 600HP, 5.2-liter V10 involved, although that’s sadly unlikely. As hinted by the self-centered name, the Egoista Concept is built to let the company toot its own horn, and won’t be sold — anyone who gets a test drive will be part of a very exclusive (and likely ecstatic) club, as you might gather from the video after the break. We’ll just have to make do with an Aventador, then.
