The Menacing 808HP Sián Is Lamborghini’s First Hybrid Supercar

After images leaked, Lamborghini pulled the trigger and revealed their latest road hellion, and it’s a full-course meal for gearheads. The Lamborghini Sián Hybrid Super Sports Car is the first of its kind for the legendary Italian automobile manufacturer, and they didn’t hold back one bit.

The Sián, which translates to “flash,” combines a 6.5-liter V12 with a new mild-hybrid system, leading to a total output of 808 horsepower. The speed beast uses a 48-volt 34-horsepower electric motor integrated into the gearbox for improved performance. According to Lamborghini, the direct connection between the electric motor and wheels is a first. And instead of using a lithium-ion battery pack, the latest Lambo utilizes a supercapacitor, which is three times more powerful than a battery of equal weight. With superior power, the vehicle can burst to 62mph in less than 2.8 seconds and hit a maximum speed of 217mph. Lamborghini will also customize the ride to fit the owner’s taste via their Ad Personam program. The supercar is limited to 63 examples and will debut at the 2019 Frankfurt IAA Motor Show, which starts on September 12.
