The Lamborghini Egoista is a one-off concept car created to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary, based on the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Based on the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Lamborghini Egoista is a one-off concept car that borrows elements from fighter jets and aircraft. Unique to this car is its one-seat fighter jet-like cockpit, alongside a completely removable canopy door. To enter and exit the vehicle, the steering wheel must be removed.
The Lamborghini Egoista's unique exterior is meant to resemble a bull ready to charge if looked at from the side. The lighting takes cues from modern airplanes, complete with sidemarkers and indicators on the sides, front, rear, and top of the car. The bodywork features active aerodynamic panels that raise and lower accordingly for optimal downforce and stability. The body and wheels are made of antiradar materials to even more identify with fighter jets.
The fully-functioning model, again based on the Gallardo, features the Gallardo's signature 5.2L (5,204 cc) naturally aspirated V10 engine tuned to churn out 592 hp (441 kW) and 413 ft·lb (560 N·m) of torque. While no official specifications other than the engine have been given, the Egoista is said to have a 0-60 mph time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).
The Lamborghini Egoista's name means "selfish" in Italian. According to the model's designer Walter de Silva, the Lamborghini Egoista “represents hedonism taken to the extreme”.
The Lamborghini Egoista is a mid-high end Class S car, starting with 1442 rank points (same as the Savage Rivale GTR), maxing out at 1642 rank points, and having 1766 rank points when maxed out and with all Pro upgrades applied. The car's Tuning Kit bonus is +43 rank points, allowing for a maximum of 1809 rank points. Its main rivals are the Koenigsegg One:1, Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014, and Ferrari 330 P4.
The Lamborghini Egoista's performance is heavily based on that of the Savage Rivale GTR, with a huge emphasis on acceleration and nitro.
The Lamborghini Egoista is one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the game, rivaling the Ferrari 330 P4 and Savage Rivale GTR, due to its high nitro stat and weighing 2094 lb (950 kg). The Egoista can reach its real maximum total speed of 297.6 mph/478.7 km/h in a very quick 2.6 seconds. One thing to note, though, is that the Egoista has a speed multipler of 95.90%.
Due to emphasizing nitro and acceleration, the Egoista's top speed stat isn't very high. This can be a disadvantage, especially considering the Egoista's above-average drifting radius, which is only slightly wider than that of the TRION NEMESIS. A good workaround to this is to drift through corners slightly earlier than normal. The Egoista does have a sharp turning capacity, though. Another disadvantage of the car is its low nitro efficiency, at 8/13/18.
The Lamborghini Egoista, despite its acceleration capabilities, isn't too competitive in Multiplayer, as given its drifting radius, the Egoista does have trouble navigating through infamously difficult tracks like Sector 8 and Venice. The McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 is also a much better performer for the same rank and lower price, although like the Egoista, the MP4-25 suffers the problems of restrictive availability (both cars currently can only be obtained through Rare Blueprints) and instability.
In terms of Events, the Egoista should best be used for Lamborghini-only events or events involving mid-high-end Class S cars (SSC Tuatara, Chrysler ME412, SSC Ultimate Aero XT, Lamborghini Egoista, Koenigsegg One:1, 9FF GT9 VMAX, Ferrari Enzo Ferrari). In the case of the latter, the Egoista is also a good choice if the player doesn't have the last three cars mentioned.
Another overlooked niche of the Egoista is its usability as a Credits-grinding machine with its 14th Car Mastery Challenge being a Flawless race set in the Alps, with an average earning rate of 5,750 per 50-second race (assuming the car is MAX+PRO or upgraded to at least 5555 5455, and also assuming the VIP Bonus is taken out of the equation). Just like with the Lamborghini Veneno's last Mastery Challenge, though, the player must be careful not to wreck at any time in the race, as that immediately results in disqualification with no Credits earned.
The Lamborghini Egoista can either be obtained via its R&D event or purchased for 13,500. Maxing out the Egoista costs 2,885,450 or 16,035. Pro Kits require 1,771,900, 18 of each Class S Parts card, 16 V10 Engines, 24 Mid-Tech cards, and 24 Advanced Tech cards. As of the Car Blueprints Update, the Lamborghini Egoista can be assembled after collecting 45 Lamborghini Egoista BP cards.
Following its debut in the December 2015 R&D event, the Lamborghini Egoista was made available on a limited time offer from March 11 to 13, 2016, in the Garage at the above-mentioned tokens price.
The R&D event for the Egoista was revived from May 11, 2016, and lasted for 15 days.
Due to some technical problems that arose on May 21, the Egoista R&D event was temporarily unavailable. Players reported the disappearance of the Egoista's R&D banner from their Menu screens, as well as being unable to perform any action that requires a connection to the game's servers.
It was partially restored the following day on May 22 after services went down for about half a day; however, this resulted in players having less time to complete the final stage of this R&D event. Some players still reported connection and Sync issues with the event until May 23, when services were fully restored.
Following the conclusion of the second R&D event, any upgrades recently added stay on the car, should the car become available again at a later time.
The Lamborghini Egoista was made available for purchase again between June 10, 2016 and June 13, 2016. Between August 27, 2016 and August 30, 2016, it was made available for purchase once again.
The car was made available for purchase for the last time between January 13, 2017 to January 16, 2017.
The car is now permanently available in the garage as of the Car Blueprints Update and requires 45 Blueprints to be assembled.
