Lamborghini Sián Looks To The Future With Electric Motor And Supercapacitor – Carscoops, Carscoops.com


The Lamborghini Sián has been presented to the world for the very first time at theFrankfurt Motor Show.

Underpinning the limited-edition Raging Bull is the same platform as the Aventador and largely the same 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V 12 Engine. However, what’s innovative about the Sián is that it pairs the V 12 with a 48 – volt 34 hp electric motor incorporated into the gearbox to offer better response and performance.

Rather than simply rest on its laurels by taking a 48 – volt mild-hybrid system off the VW Group shelf, Lamborghini decided against using a lithium-ion battery pack and actually developed a supercapacitor that is three times more powerful than a battery of the same weight while also being three times lighter. The electric motor and supercapacitor weigh (kg) 75 lbs) and as mentioned, add 34 hp, so while there is a little added weight, there is also the same amount of extra power.

All told, theLamborghini Siándelivers a total of 808 hp and Lamborghini says the car will sprint to (mph) (km / h) in under 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed exceeding (mph) 350 km / h).

Under the lights in Frankfurt, theSiánis unquestionably one of the standouts of the event as these images show. The light green paint scheme may be a little odd and unusual for the Italian marque but the gold and carbon fiber accents across the exterior provide just the right balance.
