Complete with an unboxing video.
Lamborghini's insane glimpse at the future consists of a 63 unit run of its first-ever hybrid supercar, the Sian. The build slots were all bought up instantly after its reveal in September 2019 at the cost of $3.6 million each. It's an incredibly desirable car powered by Lamborghini's next-generation V12 engine with a 48-volt hybrid system based around a lithium-ion supercapacitor. As far as we can tell, that's the next best thing to a flux capacitor, and, according to Lamborghini, it's three times more powerful than a battery of the same weight.
As a result, the Lamborghini Sian has a combined output of 819 horsepower and is a preview of what will be powering Lamborghinis in the future. Right now, though, the first Sian has landed in the US, and Lamborghini Newport Beach documented it arriving at its dealership in California.
It's one hell of an arrival for someone over the Christmas holiday, and Lamborghini Newport Beach even carefully wrapped the crate it arrived in for the customer and put a little bow on top. He unwrapped it to reveal the Sian was ordered in the vibrant Arancio Atlas paint and came with plenty of exposed gloss carbon fiber parts, including the engine cover and rear wing. It also sounds as fantastic on startup as we would expect, knowing the V12 and hybrid system provides instant acceleration allowing it to sprint from 0-62 mph in under 2.8 seconds before starting to stretch its legs up to a top speed of 217 mph.
The drivetrain isn't the only high-tech performance addition to this Aventador-based special. It has a carbon fiber front splitter, aggressive side air intakes, and a substantial rear wing. An active cooling vane system is activated by temperature from the exhaust system to rotate and provide extra cooling. It's Lamborghini's first step into hybridization and a legitimate hypercar, and we hope the owner of this one drives it around the Los Angeles county area, so there's a chance we might see it in the metal.
