Lamborghini is building just 63 examples of the Aventador-based Sian and the first example has just touched down on the shores of the UK.
In recent months, we have seen a handful of eye-catching Sian models get delivered in the U.S. including one with an incredible paint scheme combining white, purple, and green. The Sian featured in this video isn’t quite as striking but is still a real head-turner and had car spotters in the UK capital running after it in order to get the best possible photos.
The exterior of this Sian is predominately painted in a stealthy shade of matte grey but it also features a plethora of exposed carbon fiber parts and bright red accents. Matching the exterior finish is an interior clad in carbon fiber, black leather and Alcantara, and various red accents, including the seat belts.
Like the Lamborghini Aventador, the Sian features a 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12. However, this engine is supplemented by an electric motor that produces an additional 34 hp and receives its juice from a supercapacitor, rather than a traditional lithium-ion battery pack. All up, the Sian pumps out 819 hp and retains the iconic V12 soundtrack that we all know and love.
For now, the Lamborghini Sian is the car manufacturer’s only hybrid model. However, in 2023, it will launch its first hybrid series production car. This model is expected to either be a replacement for the Aventador or a hybrid version of the Urus.
