It is now the year 2020, which means we have came to a new decade with lots of new upcoming innovations. In case of Lamborghini, they have already shown their “very first step” to the new future by revealing the latest Lamborghini Sian. Being Lamborghini’s first hybrid car, the Sian promises a new standard for the brand. So with no further ado, let’s have a first look at the Lamborghini Sian!
The Lamborghini Sian was revealed for the first time at Frankfurt Motor Show 2019 and naturally, it quickly caught many people’s attention at first sight (just like any previous Lambo). Lamborghini called it as “Sian FKP 37” – Lambo’s very first hybrid car and arguably the most powerful Lambo to date. And before anyone would ask, sadly there would be only 63 units built. Each one got a price tag of €2,010,000 and yes, all 63 units were sold out…
As we know, Lamborghini tends to have their way of naming their models. In case of the Sian, the name “Sian” actually came from Bologna region’s slang which means “thunderbolt“. Thunderbolt!? That must mean the new Sian’s performance will be thunderous, isn’t it? Highly so! Though we still have not had any chance to see the Sian in action yet, some specs revealed by Lamborghini implies that it will be one hell of a raging bull.
As mentioned, Lamborghini Sian is Lambo’s first hybrid created. It still uses the same 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine which is also used by the Aventador SVJ. But, it also comes with the new supercapacitors system, giving Sian an additional boost of 34 hp, making up a total of 807 hp. That is not exactly much higher than the SVJ (770 hp). But according to Lamborghini Automobili, the new supercapacitors method is 3 times lighter and 3 times as powerful as the traditional lithium-ion battery. In addition, the Sian would have much faster midrange acceleration, a better response between shifts, and additional torque off the line up to 81 mph.
In terms of appearance, the Sian does not disappoint either. At first glance, Lamborghini Sian has a strong reference to the overall shape of the Aventador SVJ. Plus, we can immediately sense lots of influences from the concept car Terzo Millennio, especially with that iconic Y-shape front lights. It also comes with new rear lights, featuring 6 separated hexagonal taillights. While the exterior in overall features lots of complicated shapes & details, and we can be sure that Lamborghini has worked hard to implement more complex designs and optimize aerodynamics.
With Lamborghini Sian, we can now have a general grasp of what’s to come from future Lamborghini models. It is a great bridge to conceptualize some of the vision from the insane Terzo Millennio. As for now, the last we want to see left is witness its true power on the field!
