Lamborghini has unveiled its first ever hybrid sports car called Sian. The car will make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 10th. The novelty will be released in a limited edition of 63 copies. The price of the car is $ 3.6 million. At the moment, all copies of Sian are already sold out.

The structure of the hybrid power plant of the novelty includes a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine with a return of 775 horsepower. This motor is also used on the Aventador SVJ. The unit works in conjunction with an electric motor with a capacity of 34 horsepower and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The total return of the car is 819 horsepower. Traction is transmitted to all wheels.

The system is not powered by a lithium-ion battery – for the first time a supercapacitor is used for this. The device is located between the passenger capsule and the engine for better weight distribution. The supercapacitor is three times more powerful and three times lighter than a conventional battery. You can replenish energy with each braking using a special recovery system. It can be used to increase power during acceleration at speeds up to 130 km per hour. This innovation is a proprietary development of Lamborghini engineers.

Acceleration to 100 km / h in a supercar takes 2.8 seconds, a top speed of 350 km per hour. In these parameters, the novelty does not differ from the Aventador SVJ. At the same time, acceleration from 30 to 60 km / h and from 70 to 120 km / h takes Sian 0.2 and 1.2 seconds less thanks to the new energy saving system.

“With this car, we set ourselves the task of creating the best hybrid solution for the Lamborghini supersports car. This is our first step in a new electrification strategy, ”said Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini Technical Director.

The design of the novelty resembles the concept of Terzo Millennio, shown in November 2017. In addition, a number of elements are taken from the current flagship of the Italian company Aventador, as well as from the exclusive supercar Centenario. The car received large air intakes and a large front carbon fiber splitter.
