The 2022 Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is a mid-engine hybrid sports car produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini. Unveiled online on 3 September 2019, the Sián is the first hybrid production vehicle produced by the brand. The name Sián comes from a Bolognese word which means a flash of lightning. The name was selected to highlight the fact that the car is the first production vehicle produced by the company to include a hybrid supercapacitator component. FKP 37 are the initials of the late Volkswagen Group chairman Ferdinand Karl Piëch. Production of the Sián FKP 37 will be limited to 63 units of the coupe and 19 units of the roadster and all have already been sold. Lamborghini’s Ad Personam division will be responsible for the manufacture of the Sián. The car was officially unveiled to the public at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show configured in a unique “electric gold” paint. It was also renamed to be known as the Sián FKP 37 honouring late Volkswagen Group chairman Ferdinand Piëch. “FKP” are the initials of his name and “37” are the last two numbers of his birth year (i.e. 1937).
The Sián FKP 37 is the first super sports car powered by a V12 engine and hybrid technology based on supercapacitors. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Sián FKP 37 shares its engine with the SVJ variant of the Aventador, but an electric motor integrated into the gearbox adds another 25 kW to the power output. Other modifications to the engine include the addition of titanium intake valves, a reconfigured ECU and a new exhaust system raising the power output to 785 PS. The total power output is 819 PS, making the Sián the most powerful production Lamborghini. The engine is connected to a 7-speed automated manual transmission and the car employs an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system with a rear mechanical self-locking differential for improved handling.Its powerful V12 engine, coupled with electric boost, creates an unrivaled gem of engineering and technology. Sián—lightning in Bolognese—is a name that captures the car’s true character, foremost its speed, which exceeds 220 mph (350 km/h).
The power for the electric motor is stored in a supercapacitor unit instead of conventional lithium-ion batteries. The supercapacitor unit is integrated with the electric motor into the gearbox in order for a better weight distribution. Supercapacitors were chosen due to their ability to provide three times the power of a conventional lithium-ion battery of the same weight. The unit installed in the car is an evolution of the Aventador’s starter motor and can store ten times more power than the unit it is based on. A regenerative braking system helps generate enough energy to recharge the supercapacitors. The electric motor counters the effect of deceleration and provides a power boost to the driver at speeds up to 130 km/h. The motor supports low-speed manoeuvres such as parking and reversing. The improvements made to the car help accelerate it from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and attain an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h but the official top speed is to be confirmed.
The exterior design incorporates a wedge shape, a trademark of famed automobile designer Marcello Gandini and mixes that with the design of the Terzo Millennio concept introduced two years prior. The Design DNA of Lamborghini is taken to its peak levels: inspired by the Countach, the Sián FKP 37 has sharp lines, aerodynamic elegance and an unmistakable silhouette. Its totally carbon fiber body leaves you breathless. The electrochromic roof and moving surfaces controlled by smart materials are sculpted by innovative lines. The Terzo Millennio-inspired headlights leave behind an indelible luminous signature that will shape future Lamborghini design. The Y shaped daytime running headlights are inspired by the Terzo Millennio while at the rear an active fixed rear wing with the number “63” embossed on its winglets to honour the company’s year of incorporation creates downforce. Downforce is maximised by the model’s prominent side air intakes and large carbon-fibre front splitter. A transparent “Peroscopio” glass panel runs from the centre of the roof and rolls back into the slatted engine cover adds light and visibility for the occupants, and the six hexagonal taillights are an inspiration from the Countach.
