That's what you think. They are actually in the trunk!

What's with the awkward angles? Is it a stealth car?

EGOista?

Ok Lambo, you guys are getting silly.

Because every generation of kids needs a car worthy of a poster for their wall.

And that is enough reason to make this car, ESPECIALLY for Lambo

Really?

If you printed that awful thing on toilet paper it would be the ugliest thing in the toilet bowl.

Stupid in every way, except for Blasko's poster comment.

ecmoRandomNumbers: What's with the awkward angles? Is it a stealth car?


It's a Lambo, they're all about the angles.  Lambos are supposed to be mental.  The Countach was barely driveable.  And when you did drive it, it tried to kill you.  The Diablo wasn't a whole lot better.  The Miura, well it just wanted to catch on fire.

I don't think its beautiful. I think it is outrageous. That's what Lambo has generally done best with.

Over the top "I'll kill you just as soon as you let me" cars that are 75% insanity and 25% terror.

I'd blow it up to spend a weekend in a MP4-12C, but it is automotive insanity, and thus pure Lamborghini.

I don't think I'd ever own one, but I'd love to rent one for a week or two and just go driving around the Western third of the USA.

It looks like one shoe from a pair of ASICS sneakers.

Obviously, the model shown doesn't have all the available options.

How exactly do you get in and out of it? A running jump?

Must think in Russian...

or Italian in this case... German will work too.

I watched the video and I'm confused...

When it hits 1000 "KM/H" does it travel Back to the Future?
 
2013-05-15 07:33:08 PM  
Looks like Michael Bay designed it, that isn't a compliment.

/would be lying if I said I'd turn one down though
 
2013-05-15 07:35:55 PM  
It reminds me of a piece of deep wisdom I learned not long ago - Money can't buy happiness, but it's more fun to cry in a Lamborghini.
 
2013-05-15 07:43:19 PM  
"It is designed purely for hyper-sophisticated people douchbags who want only the most extreme and special things in the world."

Also: hideous vehicle

/screw the haters, I loved that movie!


I remember thinking from the trailer that the colours of the movie looked too bright. Then I got a boxed set of the DVDs and rewatched it and realized the original was just as garish only I never knew that as a kid since I was watching it on a 14" black and white TV at the time.

Actually, Lamborghini has been dialing up the insanity because Pagani has been beating them for quite some time by being even more insane.

However, the Egoista is definitely one of the most insane super cars I've ever seen.  The front end looks absolutely wicked, but the one person cabin kind of ruins it.

Well, I suppose they could have tried the center driver /offset passenger thing that McLaren did with the F-1 but that car is an absolute NIGHTMARE to get in and out of.

I know, right? It's far too cramped for the coked-up hooker to give you a beej while you drive

Better than the Huayra...

Very cool if it's a Hot Wheels toy car.

An Enzo front and R8 back, essentially.

I love the movie just for how surreal it is.  Plus: Car-fu.

Paint this Lambo black and give it a horizontal glowing red hood sensor and you'd have the Knight Industries Ten Thousand or something.

Looks more like Racer X's (who, unbeknownst to Speed, is his older brother, Rex Racer, who ran away from home many years ago) car.

Why do I expect that in the next Transformers movie?

I love this idea in concept, but... you need a car that can withstand the rigors of TV shooting, and is easily replaceable, and this car fails on both of those.

Has the perfect look for it though...

common sense is an oxymoron: MrSteve007: How exactly do you get in and out of it? A running jump?

[www.extravaganzi.com image 730x285]


Exactly - they provide a step pad, right next to the canopy, about 3 feet up. I'm a pretty limber guy, but that's going to be quite the step. Guess they expect people to keep a small step ladder near the car.

Nope, no room in the outriggers.  It's a tunnel car.  There's massive air ducts going either side of the cockpit.  Damned thing is gonna stick.

Bet the exists on the tunnels are adjustable too.

Looks kind of like it was designed by Tamiya for their Mini 4WD toys.

Firefox reference. Nice.

Also, I don't know if I like this thing, but it's definitely crazy enough to be a Lambo.

That movie was a perfect homage to the original show. People just don't remember how ridiculous that show actually was.

That looks awesome, this concept looks like a life size Hot Wheel.

I want to see a video of that piece of shiat going over a speedbump, or really any road that is not perfectly flat and straight.
