The upcoming 2021 Lamborghini Sián is set to enjoy a bit of an electric boost thanks to an on-board supercapacitor that can rapidly discharge electricity. The performance boost is rather modest, and in truth the supercapacitor is more of a novelty than a breakthrough. Still, the 2021 Lamborghini Sián offers an interesting showcase of a technology that might some day deliver more substantial boosts.
Supercapacitors usage has been relatively limited in the hyper car market, but the technology does hold some promise. A supercapacitor can store a lot of electricity and can discharge it quickly since no chemical reactions are required. This could be used to deliver substantial performance boosts off the line or during other limited applications.
The supercapacitor 2021 Lamborghini Sián is paired with the transmission and adds some instant torque that smooths out the clutch. As a technology showcase, the Lambo Sián is rather modest, but in the future supercapacitors and other technologies might help gas powered engines keep up with their electric brethren.
And outside of the electric tech, the 2021 Lamborghini Sián is a hell of a car. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador for sale, only 63 models of the 2021 Lamborghini Sián are expected to be produced. The 6.5 liter V-12 will crank out a max of 808 horsepower and in spite of the electric assistance, it’s still expected to get only 8 to 10 miles per gallon.
This Lamborghini for sale also features some of the most aggressive styling we’ve seen from the famed hypercar maker, and give its rarity, it’s likely to achieve iconic status in no time flat.
