Lamborghini Egoista concept looks like a space fighter

At the end of its 50th anniversary Grande Giro tour, Lamborghini unveils a new high-end concept car that looks like something Batman would drive in space and represents hedonism in the extreme.

We've seen some pretty out-there limited-edition cars from luxury manufacturer Lamborghini, but its newest may have just taken the biscuit and sped off with it.

The Egoista, unveiled at the closing gala of the 50th anniversary Grande Giro tour, was designed by Volkswagen's head of design, Walter De Silva, and it's meant to be the ultimate in self-indulgence.

"This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum," De Silva said. "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)."

The single-person cockpit (we hesitate to call it anything else); angled, crystalline chassis; and orange highlights remind us of nothing so much as a space fighter -- especially once you check out the launch video below.

Only one Egoista will ever be made: Lamborghini's anniversary gift to Lamborghini.
