The First Lamborghini Sian in North America Has a WICKED Paint Job
The Lambo Sian FKP 37 hits U.S. soil and looks incredible doing itby Ciprian Florea, on LISTEN 02:47
Unveiled in September 2019, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is one of the most exciting supercars that went into production in 2020. But it’s not just the exhilarating, Countach-inspired design; the Sian is also Lambo’s first production hybrid, paving the way to upcoming electrified supercars from Sant’Agata Bolognese. With 2020 coming to an end, Lamborghini delivered the first Sian to the United States. Someone got himself the wildest and most expensive Christmas gift, and YouTube’s TheStradman was on-site at Lamborghini of Newport Beach to witness the unveiling.
We’ve already seen the Sian in tons of official photos and videos, so there are no surprises here, but the Italian supercar sure looks breathtaking from up close, even if it’s through a camera lens.
And the metallic orange paint job -- paired with the black and carbon-fiber trim -- makes everything that much more spectacular.
The folks over at Lambo Newport Beach were kind enough to start up the car and rev the V-12 engine a few times before parking the Sian next to the Centenario, yet another limited-edition supercar from the Italian firm. Surprisingly enough, that Centenario is still for sale, even though this nameplate was discontinued in 2017 after only 40 units were built.
Getting back to the Sian FKP 37, it will be built in just 63 units, all customized and manufactured by the brand’s Ad Personam division. All 63 units have already been sold for about $3.3 million each before options. Lambo will also build 19 roadsters.
The Sian FKP 37 packs the same 6.5-liter V-12 as the Aventador, but it also features an electric motor.
The V-12 delivers 774 horsepower, while the motor adds another 34 horses for a combined output of 807 horsepower.
The cool thing about the Sian is that it doesn’t feature conventional lithium-ion batteries. Instead, it’s fitted with a supercapacitor unit that is integrated with the electric motor into the gearbox. A regenerative braking system helps recharge the supercapacitors, which provide three times the power of a lithium-ion battery of the same weight.
