Lamborghini finally came up with a convertible version of the Sian.

Lamborghini, like any other supercar maker, is always seeking ways to up its game. And that’s what the Italian marque did as it introduced the ultra-limited Lamborghini Sian Roadster.

So what’s so special about this particular Sian version? For starters, it doesn’t have a roof. So apart from being a limited model itself, it also joins the exclusive convertible hybrid supercar club.

Here it is folks, the Sian Roadster

Powering the Lamborghini Sian Roadster is the iconic V12 made by Automobili Lamborghini themselves. It works in conjunction with a supercapacitor and a 48-volt electric motor, which in total can make 819 horsepower.

The said electric motor doesn’t actually lend a hand to delivering power to achieve the Sian’s 0-100 km/h time of 2.9 seconds, as well as its top speed of 350 km/h. Instead, it helps with low-speed maneuvers like parking.

Yep, all of its angular features serve one purpose or another and are not just for looks

The Sian is also notable for being the first-ever car to use a supercapacitor in a hybrid system, and it definitely stores more power than the typical lithium-ion battery, while being lighter at only 34 kilograms. Supporting the hybrid system of the Sian is Lamborghini’s proprietary regenerative braking system, which can charge the energy storage system as fast as it is discharged.

Of course its got the signature Lamborghini taillights

Apart from the output numbers, the impressive thing about the Sian Roadster is its futuristic design. Note though that the designers intentionally made the Sian to be reminiscent of the legendary Lamborghini Countach. The Sian also features a lot of aerodynamics like its air streamers that sit behind the cockpit, the long sculpted sculptures, which are apparent from the side, as well as it’s carbon fiber spiller, and aero wings.

So how limited is its production run really? Well as of this writing, all 19 units of the Lamborghini Sian Roadster have already been sold. So yes, it’s safe to say that we might not get to see one in our lifetimes, barring a chance encounter with one in some back road in Europe.
