Lamborghini Sian Roadster revealed, already sold out

The Lamborghini Sian Roadster features Countach-inspired styling, and a supercapacitor-based V12 hybrid drivetrain.


The limited-edition Lamborghini Sian Roadster was revealed overnight with the same V12 hybrid drivetrain as its coupe sibling.

Only 19 Sian Roadsters will be built, making it even more exclusive than the coupe, which has a planned run of 63 cars.

Pricing hasn’t been announced, but all Sian Roadsters are all already spoken and accounted for.

The 6.5-litre V12 nestled behind the passenger compartment makes 577kW at 8500rpm, and is paired with a 25kW electric motor built into the transmission for a total of 602kW of power.

A seven-speed automated manual transmission drives all four wheels.

While most other road-going hybrid systems feature a nickel-metal hydride or lithium-ion battery pack, the Sian uses a smaller, more energy dense, and faster-acting supercapacitor setup.

All up the electric motor and supercapacitor system are claimed to weigh just 34 kilograms.

The electric motor is able to provide a boost at speeds up to 130km/h, and helps out with low-speed tasks, such as parking and reversing.

Lamborghini claims the Sian Roadster is capable of completing the 0-100km/h dash in 2.9 seconds, and hitting a top speed of over 350km/h.

Compared to the coupe, the Roadster is 0.1 seconds slower to the 100km/h mark.

The Sian Roadster pictured as part of today’s launch is finished in Blu Uranus paint paired with gold-colour wheels.
