The collection in the Lamborghini Museum has just gained an additional member with the addition of the one-unit only Lamborghini Egoista - a supercar developed by Walter De Silva, Head of Volkswagen Group Design, as a tribute to the Raging Bull marque's 50th anniversary last year.



Inspired by the Apache attack helicopter, the Egoista, which is Italian for 'selfish' is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine that churns out 600bhp and takes the attributes that are in the DNA of every Lamborghini to the next (eccentric) level.



The design is sharply distinguished by a muscular structure with alternating open and solid areas, and the profile suggests the stylised silhouette of a bull about to charge.



The car's aeronautical influence is clearly evident in the headlight system while the aeronautical inspiration is also evident in the body made of lightweight materials such as carbon fibre and aluminium.



The cockpit is conceived as a removable accessory which allows the driver to be insulated and protected from external elements.

The name is very befitting of the car, or should I say the car very befitting of the name. For the very exclusivista and egoista driver

The Egoista is inspired by the Apache attack helicopter, but the apache can accommodate 2, whereas this only has space for one

    Construction on Jurong Region Line to start next year

    Construction works for five stations on the new Jurong Region Line (JRL) are expected to start next year and slated for completion in 2026. The five stations are Choa Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang West, Tengah, Hong Kah and Corporation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday. The authority has awarded two contracts worth $739.5 million to construct the five MRT stations. The stations will form part of JRL, Singapore's seventh MRT line, which is set to open in three stages from 2026. Comprising 24 stations, the line was announced last year to improve connectivity in the Jurong area, with the aim of boosting the area's transformation into a second Central Business District.
