The Sian Roadster enhanced the experience of a hybrid supercar with the pleasure of open-top driving.
It was based on the 2019 Lamborghini Sian FKP37.
When Lamborghini unveiled the Sian FKP37 coupe, it was a tribute for Ferdinand Piech, the Volkswagen group manager who made possible the Italian brand’s acquisition. But that was in 2019. In 2020, Lamborghini unveiled the Roadster version in an online event due to the world pandemic.
The Y-shaped daytime running lights at the front was an extension for the carbon-fiber front splitters. The designers combined the flat and angular surfaces with the curved shape of the fenders. The Countach was their inspiration, and that could have been noticed in the back as well. Six hexagonal taillights ensured the rear visibility of the supercar. The aerodynamic engineers installed a special retractable wing in the back, ended in two fixed winglets.
The car’s interior was Lamborghini’s interpretation of luxury. The car-maker installed a different kind of leather on the slim, carbon-fiber seats. The door panels featured an aluminum handle and a carbon-fiber trim. All of the interior colors could have been custom made to suit the customer’s taste.
The powertrain was a mix between a 6.5-liter V12 engine and a 48-volt electric motor offering a total of 807 hp, which leads to a 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 350 kph (217 mph). The whole car is an homage to the Volkswagen group, which helped Lamborghini rise again from its ashes.
