The inevitable open-top version of Sant'Agata's new hybrid flagship will probably look a lot like this.
Death and taxes, they say, are the only certainties in life. But there are a few other things that come pretty close to guaranteed. Like when Lamborghini rolls out a new supercar, you can rest assured there'll be an open-top version to follow. That will, in all likelihood, be the case as well with the new Sian, and when that day almost inevitably comes, it'll probably look a lot like these renderings by Nikita Aksyonov.
The Lamborghini Sian, for those who may have missed yesterday's big announcement, is the Raging Bull marque's new top-of-the-line hypercar, and its first production-bound hybrid.
Think of it as Sant'Agata's answer to the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, but with a bit less power, a milder hybrid setup, arguably more aggressive styling, and a strictly limited production run.
The Sian packs an upgraded version of the 6.5-liter V12 from the Aventador – naturally aspirated but boosted by a (relatively) small electric motor, a supercapacitor (instead of a battery), and 48-volt electrical system to deliver a combined total of 819 horsepower. That's said to be enough to propel the hybrid hypercar to 62 mpg in under 2.8 seconds before topping out at over 217 miles per hour.
Lamborghini will only make 63 examples of the Sian coupe, and they were all pre-sold to select customers before the vehicle was ever revealed to the broader public. But we'd bet dollars to tire-screeching, smoke-billowing donuts that there'll be an additional run of roadsters to follow. After all, that's exactly what it did with the Reventon, Veneno, and Centenario – just about every one of the limited-run supercars it's produced until now, save for the Sesto Elemento. And that's not even counting the standard-production Huracan, Gallardo, Aventador, Murcielago, and Diablo, stretching back twenty years now. Like we said: death, taxes, and Lamborghini roadsters.
