The trend of electrifying cars is here to stay. Even Lamborghini is getting in on it. The Italian automaker is not taking the same route as others though. Let us introduce you to the Sián. The word means “flash” or “lightning” in Bolognese dialect. This is their first hybrid car. The carmaker is focusing on the raw performance with its friendliness to mother earth.
Specs, you ask?

More will be unveiled when the Lamborghini Sián showcased to the world’s media and the public at the Frankfurt IAA motor show 2019.
Lamborghini’s strategic heritage in one-off and very limited series cars is not only a commitment to exclusivity but for a presentation of future designs and technologies. With this car, we set ourselves the challenge of creating the best hybrid solution for a Lamborghini super sports car to provide us with the first step on our electrification strategy, Lamborghini is inherently a rule-breaker, a challenger, always pushing what is possible to find a better solution. With the Sián we are defining our route to innovation and we are setting new rules in new technologies, instead of just following existing solutions. The result is the Lamborghini Sián, which includes the world-first application of a supercapacitor for hybridization and new materials technology.Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer
If you are familiar with the designs of Lamborghini you may notice that there are hints of Terzo Millennio who made the concept car of 2017 for the automaker. Elements such as the Y-shaped headlights, and the supercapacitor storage. This car is not completely hybrid, but it does have a self-healing carbon fiber. With Europe and the world pushing for more eco-friendly vehicles, it makes sense that the Italian company is doing just that.
