Lamborghini Should Have Made The Sian A Roadster From The Get-Go

If the Sian is meant to be Lamborghini’s greatest supercar to date, then we would argue that it’s a shame it wasn’t built directly as a Roadster, since that puts the driver even closer to the powertrain from an auditory standpoint.

Convertible cars are also generally regarded as being “more cool” than regular Coupes or what have you, which is yet another argument in favor of letting the top drop on any and all new exotic supercars. Alas, this here is only a render, courtesy of Aksyonov Nikita.

Regardless of its roof configuration, the Sian is properly spectacular. For starters, it looks really menacing, sort of like a mix between an Aventador, the Centenario and the Terzo Millennio Concept.

If you can picture yourself in it with no roof over your head, then you should also picture firing up its 6.5-liter naturally aspirated mild-hybrid system, which also packs a 48-volt electric motor incorporated into the gearbox – it also supports low-speed maneuvering, letting you park your electrified Lambo without using any gasoline.

As for the numbers, they tell a very compelling story. The Sian’s total system output reads 808 HP (819 PS), allowing you to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in under 2.8 seconds, before maxing out somewhere beyond 217 mph (350 km/h). It’s not quite a hypercar, but it’s not far off either.

In order for us to see a real convertible version of the Sian one day, Lamborghini would need to build beyond those initial 63 Coupe examples which have already been sold – and that’s definitely not out of the question.
