Two owners in the UK have taken delivery of the limited-production Lamborghini Sián, which was first unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Lamborghini used the name Sián as it means flash or lightning in Bolognese dialect, referencing the first electric application in a Lamborghini production car.

Each Lamborghini Sián is priced at over two million Euro plus taxes, and each owner specified their unique Sián in conjunction with Lamborghini’s Ad Personam team.

Lamborghini London said the Sián with Grigio Nimbus exterior has exposed carbon weave roof and Rosso Mars accents, complemented by a Nero Ade interior with Rosso Alala contrasts.

Meanwhile, the second Sián has a dark Nero Helene bodywork set off by exposed carbon fibre on the bonnet, front lamp inserts, fenders and engine cover. Additional highlights are finished in Oro Electrum, which is also used within the alloy wheels.

The Sián is the most powerful and fastest-accelerating Lamborghini ever produced. The hybrid system features a world-first hybrid supercapacitor powertrain, combining the company’s most powerful naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine (785 hp) with a 48-volt e-motor (34 hp) delivering a total output of 819 hp.

All that power sends the Sián from standstill to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and achieving a top speed of over 350 km/h.

The electrified system with the supercapacitor and e-motor weighs only 34 kg. This 600-Amp supercapacitor is three times more powerful than a battery of the same weight and three times lighter than a battery storing the same power.   

Thanks to the symmetric behaviour of the supercapacitor, which contrary to normal lithium-ion batteries can be charged and discharged with the same power. This means that the Sián’s energy storage system is fully charged every time the vehicle decelerates and brakes.

The energy stored is an instantly-available power boost, allowing the driver to draw immediately on increased torque when accelerating away, up to 130 km/h.

A total of only 63 units are being made, the figure referencing the founding year of Automobili Lamborghini, and all were already spoken for even before the official unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Earlier this month, Lamborghini announced the appointment of SunAgata Supercars Sdn. Bhd. as the sole distributor of Lamborghini vehicles in Malaysia.

If you would like to have a collectable Sián in your home, Lamborghini commissioned LEGO to make a highly detailed Technic kit of the Sián. This model kit is rather limited too, so do check out their official stores in either Shopee or Lazada.
