The Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is a 808hp Hybrid supercar with a massive 6.5 litre Naturally Aspirated V12 that sounds glorious. It’s spaceship looks are fitting of the hybrid system inside, a world’s first Supercapacitor powered hybrid system, that’s hidden inside. At between 2-3 million dollars it costs a lot, but it’s worth it.

When Lamborghini says you can have a few hours behind the wheel of its first production hybrid supercar, you’re not going to let a rainy British winter’s day stand in your way. So I find myself in the heart of the British countryside with the keys to the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 in my hand, and the Millbrook proving ground’s alpine test circuit and high-speed bowl at my disposal.

The Sian is a first for Lamborghini: a mild-hybrid supercar. Its name comes from the Bolognese word for lightning. The alphanumeric appendix refers to the initials of former Volkswagen Group head Ferdinand Piech — the man responsible for bringing Lamborghini into the Group’s portfolio — and 1937, the year of his birth. Only 63 examples will be built, commemorating the incorporation of Automobili Lamborghini in 1963. Naturally, every car is already spoken for.

On sight, the Sian activates all the same neutrons that fired when I first saw a photo of the LP400 Countach. Like all the best Lamborghinis, the Sian’s design appears to have been lifted directly from the imagination of an excited child.

But even by normal Lamborghini standards the Sian looks futuristic and wild. Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini’s head of design, went out of his way to give the Sian an especially large amount of eye-catching details, with creases and cutouts everywhere, bringing the Sian right up to the line of looking ridiculous without actually crossing it. I mean, it has fins that wouldn’t have looked out of place on a 1960s Cadillac Eldorado. It’s a bold choice.

The interior, by contrast, is quite restrained — on the Lambo scale, anyway. The steering wheel is especially spartan with not a single button or switch. The Sian gets the same larger, portrait-oriented infotainment screen as the Huracan Evo, although its positioning is far from convenient, located quite low and far from the dash. Still, it makes the cabin feel more contemporary than that of, say, the Aventador. From the missile-key-style guard for the engine start button to the shapely, 3D-printed housing for the air vents and the illuminated supercapacitor sign, there are still plenty of flourishes to make you and everyone around you think you’re driving a spaceship.

But what’s most important about the Sian is what’s under the skin. The Sian is based on the Aventador SVJ, with an identical chassis and suspension, and the same V12 engine. The Sian, however, adds an electric motor to make this Lamborghini’s first production hybrid.

A quick bit of history: In the ancient before-times of 2013 when Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche launched their so-called holy trinity of hybrid supercars, Lamborghini was notably absent. At the time, Lamborghini’s then-CEO Stephan Winkelmann dismissed the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder as compromised and overweight. Adding big, lithium-ion batteries to a supercar simply wasn’t on Lambo’s roadmap. Fast forward a few years and Lamborghini showed the world how it would enter the world of electrification, debuting the Sian FKP 37 at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.

What’s a supercapacitor? Anyone who’s pulled apart a broken gadget will have encountered these small cylinders soldered to circuit boards. Their ability to quickly store and deploy large amounts of energy make them great alternatives to batteries when ultra-fast recharge time is a benefit and their quick depletion isn’t a problem. A flashlight using a supercapacitor instead of a battery may only run for an hour, but it will recharge in 60 seconds.

The Sian’s 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 is the same engine you’ll find in the Aventador SVJ, just with titanium inlet valves and some ECU tweaks. In the SVJ, this engines produces 759 hp; in the Sian, 774 hp. Add in the 34 hp from the electric motor and you get to the staggering total output of 808 hp. That’s in a car that costs somewhere between $2 million and $3 million, depending on spec, easily four times the sticker price of the Aventador SVJ.

For both cars, accelerating to 62 mph takes 2.8 seconds and their top speeds are a claimed 217 mph. Off the line, the benefits of the Sian’s electric motor are minimal. At higher speeds, however, the electric motor fills in the spaces where torque might be lacking, allowing for smoother and quicker acceleration at speed.

Nice!so where does the spare tyre fit 🤔just incase I get a flat wheel???

Shane Bailey says:

Why is he not Henry?

Bruce Crossan says:

I'm torn if I would want this or the SVJ because I like Lambo's with a wing that's always visable versus the Sian which only comes up when needed. It's cool and all… just kind of takes away from my personal taste.

George M says:

I think this design is little ugly..

A dream to have.
