The Fastest Lamborghini Ever Is A $3.6 Million Electric Hybrid

The new Lamborghini Sian was revealed last year at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show. This car is Lamborghini‘s first attempt at making a hybrid vehicle, but it will still have a powerful V12 engine under the hood. In Bolognese, Sian means “flash of lightning,” which is an obvious reference to the car’s electrical components.

This new supercar has the same 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine that was also used by the SVJ, but with the added power of a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, which adds 34 horsepower (25 kilowatts). In total, the car packs a grand total of 819 hp (602 kW), which makes the new Sian the most powerful production Lamborghini ever, a title previously held by the 770-hp (566-kW) SVJ.

This also makes the Sián the fastest-accelerating Lamborghini ever, achieving 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.8 seconds.

Traction force is improved by up to 10% in third gear and the 30 to 60 km/h acceleration time is improved by 0.2 seconds compared to the Aventador SVJ. In higher gears and lower speeds the electric motor increases traction force by up to 20%, reducing the 70 to 120 km/h acceleration by 1.2 seconds compared to the Aventador SVJ, according to a press release issued by the company when the car was announced.

The company is only planning on building 63 of these vehicles and they start at an average price of $3.6 million. So far, the 63 models that were made have already sold out.

Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali told Car Magazine that, “It augments the potential for Lamborghini as a super sports car brand for tomorrow and for decades to come, even as hybridisation becomes more desirable and inevitably essential. Lamborghini is, inherently, a rule breaker. With the Sian, we set ourselves the challenge of creating the best hybrid solution for a Lamborghini to provide the first step in our electrification strategy,”
