(Bloomberg) -- Lamborghini's Egoista concept, unveiled earlier this month at the company's 50th anniversary celebration in Bologna, Italy, isn't planned for production, but it does have a purpose: countering critics who think the automaker has lost some of its design edginess.
The one-seat supercar, with its jet-fighter looks, was designed by Walter de' Silva, Volkswagen Group's global design chief, who said it "represents the extremes of hedonism. It is a car without compromise."
The Egoista, which means selfish in Italian, probably could be produced if Lamborghini chose to do so. It is fitted with the Lamborghini Gallardo's 5.2-liter V-10 engine and is based on the Gallardo's platform.
