Lamborghini unveils $3.6m ‘Sian’ hybrid supercar
With its futuristic-looking exterior, the Sian houses a 785 horsepower V12 engine, with a 48-volt e-motor that pushes out another 34 horsepower, giving this supercar a total of 819 HP.
Unlike other hybrids and EVs, the Sian swaps out a lithium-ion battery for a supercapacitor that is both much lighter in weight and can store almost 10 times the power. Charging takes place via a regenerative braking system which fully charges every time the supercar brakes. Once you pass 80 mph, the e-motor disconnects automatically to conserve energy. Most impressively, the Sian can make 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
There’s no official release date yet for the Sian, but only 63 units will be made and will cost $3.6 million.
