The Lamborghini Sian Coupe and Sian Roadster are two of the company’s rarest hypercars to date. Lamborghini plans to build 19 copies of the roadster and 63 copies of the coupe – of course, affluent customers have already claimed all of them. But you are probably asking yourself: why these figures in particular?
Lamborghini fans should know the answer to this question immediately. Ferruccio Lamborghini founded Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini S.p.A. in 1963, and the 19 copies of the Sian Roadster and 63 copies of the Sian Coupé are not so subtle a nod to this historic year for the company. It’s just another facet of what makes this car so special.
Another nod to the history of the company is found in the full name of the car itself, bearing the designation Sian FKP 37. The initialism “FKP” pays homage to the late chairman of the Volkswagen group, Ferdinand Piech , who died at the end of last year, and the number “37” represents the year Piech was born in 1937.
As for the numbers under the hood, the Sian coupe and the roadster combine a 6.5-liter V12 from the Aventador SVJ with a mild 48-volt hybrid system. This configuration gives them a combined power of 819 horsepower (602 kilowatts). The coupe can reach 62 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds, while the roadster gets there in 2.9 seconds – and both reach 217 miles per hour (350 kilometers per hour).
And probably the most impressive number of all: the price. Lamborghini doesn’t mention an official price for the two models, as they’re already sold out anyway, but the Sian Coupé and Roadster cost around $ 3.6 million, sources say. This puts the Sian in good company as one of the most expensive new cars ever built.
