This is the new Lamborghini Sián – the latest super car from the Italian brand.

Not only will it be Lamborghini’s first ever hybrid car, it will be their most powerful too. 

It uses a V12 petrol engine that produces 785 hp and a 48 volt e-motor which is incorporated into the gearbox.  The e-motor delivers 34 hp.  The combined power output of the e-motor and the V12 engine is a massive 819 hp.  The Sián will be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in under 2.8 seconds and have a top speed of 217 mph.

There will only be 63 units produced and all 63 units have been sold which really doesn’t surprise me at all!

The Sián is a masterpiece in possibilities, not only does the Sián deliver a formidable hyper-car design and engineering tour de force today, it augments the potential for Lamborghini as a super sports car brand for tomorrow and for decades to come, even as hybridization becomes more desirable and inevitably essential. The Lamborghini Sián represents the first step in Lamborghini’s route to electrification, and expedites our next-generation V12 engine. Its Sián moniker, meaning ‘flash or lightning’ in Bolognese dialect, denotes the first electrification of a Lamborghini production car and confirms our strong connection to the territory in which we operate. With the Sián, Automobili Lamborghini demonstrates its dynastic strength as a legendary super sports car brand for the future.

Said Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The Sián will make its public debut at this months Frankfurt Motor Show.
