Lamborghini always strives for innovation, and one of the latest examples of this is the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, and you can learn more about it right here. Based on the Aventador, but with a powerful hybrid drivetrain, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is a unique beast with unbelievable power and performance. The Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 will only see 63 examples made, and all of them are already sold. If you were hoping to get your hands on a new one, it’s already too late. If you still want to learn more about the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, then keep reading. Otherwise, feel free to reach out to Lamborghini Austin and even view our new Lamborghini inventory with the link below.
In the engine bay, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 still manages to house a V12 engine alongside a 48-volt electric motor. These two powerplants combine their efforts to produce up to 819 horsepower. The hybrid system stores energy as you drive and is able to instantly assist in acceleration up to about 80 mph at which time the e-motor disconnects and the V12 propels you the rest of the way.
The hybrid system is far from typical. The Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is the world’s first supercar to use supercapacitor technology in its hybrid drivetrain. This allows the system to rapidly charge with nearly zero energy waste. With every pump of the brake pedal, power flows into the supercapacitor to be unleashed with the next jab of the accelerator.
Combining this system with the lowest weight-to-power ratio of any V12 Lamborghini ever produced, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 can accelerate from 0-62 mpg (0-100 km/h) in just 2.8 seconds and achieve a top speed in excess of 217 mph.
As with any new Lamborghini model, studying the origin of the name is a curiosity in its own right. In this case, Sian means “flash of lightning” in the Bolognese dialect (the area of Italy in which Lamborghini models are born). FKP stands for the late Volkswagen Group CEO Ferdinand Karl Piech who was born in 1937. He was the CEO that oversaw the acquisition and growth of Lamborghini by the Volkswagen Group in 1998.
