The Lamborghini Sian is an attention-seeker, both visually and aurallyby Sidd Dhimaan, on LISTEN 02:10
The Sian is the first mass-produced hybrid car from Lamborghini. Touted as the electrified successor of the Aventador, the Sian is an exclusive car, with just 63 examples slated for production. The car was recently spotted in London, and as expected, it created chaos there. People were hovering around it the whole time, and why not? If we go by the comments on the video, it is the first customer car in the U.K. So, does it look as bold in real-world as it does in its photoshoots? Hell yeah!
The Lamborghini Sian Can Even Make The Bugatti Chiron Look Plain-Jane
As you can see in the video, the Sian exits the Lamborghini showroom and is taken to the busy roads of London. The general norm for a hybrid car is to tone down on its acoustics, but that’s not the case here, fortunately, as it still grunts as loud as a naturally aspirated V-12 without a hybrid system. In the end, you can see it being parked next to a Bugatti Chiron and that’s where you realize how unique the Sian is. In fact, the Sian is nothing like Lamborghini’s recent builds. But, it comes with styling cues inspired by the erstwhile Countach.
What Makes The Lamborghini Sian Special?
The Sian is powered by the same 6.5-liter, naturally aspirated V-12 engine as its predecessor, the Aventador, but it also comes with an electric motor for some extra juice.
Clubbed with the 48-volt mild hybrid system, the engine churns out 808 ponies, which is 68 horses more than the Aventador S and 49 more than the Aventador SVJ. The 0-60 mph time is 2.8 seconds, which puts it on par with the latter, but a one-tenth second quicker than the Aventador S. The top speed is the same 217 mph.
