2020 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
The 2020 Lamborghini Sian is a hybrid supercar that the Italian firm unveiled ahead of the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Powered by a V-12 gasoline engine and an electric motor, the Sian is Lambo’s first mass-produced hybrid. However, the supercar is limited to only 63 units, so it’s actually a preview of things to come, like an electrified successor to the Aventador.
Design-wise, the Sian stands on its own by combining a new design language with styling cues inspired by the iconic Lamborghini Countach. Its interior, on the other hand, is based on the Aventador’s, albeit it comes with bespoke elements and fancier features. The Sian also showcases innovative technology, like a state-of-the-art energy recuperating system and a supercapacitor instead of a traditional lithium-ion battery. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
All of the big names in the performance category are jumping into the hybrid supercar ring. The Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 have been dominating headlines with their prodigious performance, but now there is one more contender jumping into the game. Lamborghini has just unveiled a hybrid supercar called the Asterion. It is a plug-in hybrid, more similar to the Porsche 918 than the machines from McLaren and Ferrari. The system uses a trio of electric motors along with a gasoline-powered, V-10 engine to create a monumental 897 horsepower. The results are a zero to 60 time that hovers around 3 seconds, a top speed of around 200 mph, and it will travel for more than 30 miles on pure electric power alone.
The only thing about the Asterion that isn’t amazing seems to be the looks. The design is a bit questionable in these first photos, but we expect it will be like the Porsche Panamera; prettier in person than in print. For now, just jump past that break and you can read all about this crazy new machine, and see lots more photos to boot. Now get moving!
