Lamborghini’s first ever hybrid supercar will bear the moniker Sian FKP 37. That is in honor of the late Ferdinand K. Piëch, who was born in 1937 (and passed away just a couple of weeks ago), masterminded the VW Group for many years, served as Audi‘s Chairman of the board from 1993 to 2002 and was instrumental in the brand’s acquisition of the Italian supercar maker back in 1998.
Only 63 units of the Sian FKP 37 are to be produced, at a price of more than 2 million euros ($2.21 million) plus taxes. Unfortunately for interested parties, all have already been spoken for.
“Prof. Dr. Piëch innately understood the attraction and potential of the Lamborghini brand and how it could fit within the Volkswagen Group, whilst retaining its unique Italian super sports car identity and design and engineering DNA,” stated Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali.
“Prof. Dr. Piëch was an engineer and an innovator, particularly appreciating the appeal of the iconic Lamborghini V12 powertrain on which today, the Sián FKP 37 combines pioneering hybrid technologies. The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 provides fitting recognition of the role Piëch, and the Volkswagen Group, played in facilitating our flourishing brand today, as well as heralding Lamborghini’s innovative route to the future.”
Apart from the new moniker, nothing has changed. The Sian is powered by a mild-hybrid powertrain comprised of a 48-volt 34 HP electric motor and a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 with a combined output of 808 HP (819 PS) that allows for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in less than 2.8 seconds.

As for the two Huracan EVOs, the Spyder boasts a Rosso Epona exterior with black Narvi wheels and Rosso Andra leather inside, while the Coupe wears Viola Mithras on the outside, the same wheels as the Spyder, but features black leather and Alcantara inside, with bronze leather details and violet stitching.
