Lamborghini’s first hybrid super sports car unveiled at IAA in Frankfurt honors Ferdinand K. Piëch with its naming announcement: Sián FKP 37. Born in 1937, Ferdinand Karl Piëch played a significant role in the acquisition of Automobili Lamborghini in 1998 by Audi AG, owned by Volkswagen Group, of which he was chairman of the executive board from 1993 to 2002.
“Prof. Dr. Piëch innately understood the attraction and potential of the Lamborghini brand and how it could fit into the Volkswagen Group, whilst retaining its unique Italian super sports car identity and design and engineering DNA,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “Prof. Dr. Piëch was an engineer and an innovator, who particularly appreciated 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 path to the future.”
THE FIRST HYBRID AND THE FASTEST LAMBORGHINI
With its 819 CV, Sián FKP 37 is the fastest Lamborghini ever produced, thus delivering unique new hybrid technologies, including the world-first application of a supercapacitor for hybridization, new materials technology, and unsurpassed Lamborghini performance.
It has the lowest-ever weight-to-power ratio of any V12 Lamborghini, and accelerates on specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires from 0-100 km/h in under 2.8 seconds, reaching a top speed of over 350 km/h.
DESIGN DENOTING ELECTRIFICATION
Sián FKP 37’s futuristic design clearly denotes the first electrification of a production Lamborghini and the ground-breaking hybrid technologies within, as does its Sián moniker, meaning ‘flash of lightening’ in its homeland Bolognese dialect.
Each owner of the already-sold 63 units will specify their unique car in conjunction with Lamborghini’s Centro Stile and Ad Personam team.
