Lamborghini previewed a hybridised, even faster future with the debut of the Sian. Not only is the Sian the most powerful car the company has ever produced – with 819 bhp on tap – but it’s also one of the rarest, with just 63 units produced. Today, the Italian supercar maker takes things a step further with the debut of the Sian Roadster.
As you’d imagine, the Sian Roadster ditches the roof but otherwise maintains the same sultry design cues as its coupe counterpart. Drawing inspiration from the Terzo Millenio concept car, the Sian points toward the future for Lamborghini’s design language. Intense details like the three-prong front lighting signature and triple taillight layout are eye-catching, to say the least. Smaller touches like the side intakes and hydraulic rear wing make everything a bit more special. Put simply, it’s the best looking Lamborghini in recent memory, despite being completely over the top.
Speaking of, it’s the powertrain that sets the Sian apart as the leader of the bulls. It borrows the fire-breathing 6.5-litre V12 from the Aventador SVJ but adds a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. Total output is 819 bhp (602 Kilowatts), or in other words – damn! Lamborghini says all that grunt shoves the Sian Roadster to 60 miles per hour in under 2.9 seconds and onward to a top speed of 218 mph (350 kph).
Where the Sian coupe gets 63 units, the roadster gets less than one-third of that, with just 19 to be built. This may not be shocking, but all are sold out. The good news is that we should see some neat specs, with each owner getting the chance to work with Lamborghini Ad Personam to create their perfect car. You’re looking at a car finished in Blu Uranus, which looks absolutely stunning over the white interior and coloured wheels.
With so few Sian Roadsters hitting the streets, you’ll be lucky to ever one in the metal. Even so, it’s fun to see such a wild creation from a company that prides itself on special cars. And remember, this seven-figure stunner paves the way for the next generation of V12 Lamborghinis, which is something we can all get behind.
