Lamborghini wrapped up its extensive 50th anniversary celebrations last year - which took in a 350-car hotride around Italy - with the reveal of a one-off, single seater Gallardo concept.

That car is called the Lamborghini Egoista. The Lamborghini Egoista is an anti-radar material packed bizarro, and is available for permanent public viewing at the Lamborghini museum.

Yes, that means you lot out there can go and look at it; touch it, smell it.

If you're still sat there reading these words and not dashing off to Sant'Agata on the first chariot out*, then you might like to know about the Egoista. Based on the Gallardo and packing a modified version of its 5.2-litre V10, it produces a nice round 600bhp.

That exterior though, woah. It takes cues from an Apache helicopter, with side flanks designed so as to represent a ‘bull preparing to charge, horns lowered'. There's no aero on top, but flaps in the bodywork that open or close automatically depending on driving conditions.

It's all made of carbon-fibre, aluminium and aeronautical-spec anti-radar material, with a single seat, racing harness and head-up display. It'll go in display first in the Lamborghini showroom, and then the museum.

So, would you mind telling us what you're still doing there reading this? GO GO GO!
