The world's first supercapacitor vehicle

Now, we're continuing our discussion of the previous article. Lamborghini finally revealed its first hybrid supercar candidate to be shown off at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show next September 12-22.

That Italian supercar manufacturer officially calls it the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, which is predicted to be the company future car to greets the electrification era. Although carrying a hybrid powertrain, but Lamborghini's DNA inside Sián does not fade away.

The name 'Sián' itself is taken in Italian with the Bolognese dialect means 'lightning.' And lightning can be interpreted as Lamborgini's rapid movements in creating sports cars in the electrification era like today. The Sián also described how's the look of Lamborghini cars in the future.

And the Sián code name 'FKP 37' was taken in honor of Ferdinand K Piech who was born in 1937. He has played an important role in the acquisition of the Italian supercar brand into the VW group in 1998.

In terms of design, Lamborghini Sián is clearly seen taking most of the design of the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Concept. Although not entirely similar to that concept, but Sián comes with more aggressive line indentations so that the ideal form of a supercar can be seen of it.

"The fastest Lamborghini must be a visual and symphonic feast, as remarkable to those who see it pass by as those privileged to drive it," Mitja Borkert, Head of Design at Lamborghini, explains. "It takes inspiration from the Countach, but the Sián is a futuristic icon, not retrospective."

Sián will carry a new V12 engine and 48 Volt electric motor so that it can produce such big enough power. The V12 engine developed by the raging bull logoed auto manufacturer on the Sián was able to blast 785 hp of power as well as touted as the largest in the history of those Italian premium car manufacturers.

Lamborghini Sián also gets an additional 34 horsepower from an electric motor. So that in total the car has a power equivalent to 819 horsepower. The supercar is claimed to be able to drive up to a maximum speed of more than 350 kph. The combination of a V12 engine and an electric motor makes the Sián accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in less than 2.8 seconds.

Uniquely Sián does not use batteries like other hybrid cars, but instead the Lamborghini Sián electric system uses a supercapacitor which is claimed to provide a greater energy supply than ordinary batteries.

Yes, the supercapacitor is not like a battery, because it can be charged immediately in a faster time and also the energy harvesting can be done during the vehicle braking process. Supercapacitor also does not run out of capacity as easily as the batteries generally. So it can be used in millions of times of power recharging.
Reportedly, the supercar is produced in limited quantities, with only 63 units world wide, and sold with prices ranging from the US. $2.5 million (approx £2 million/€2.2 million) or around Rp.35.6 billion. 

But, there's bad news for You who would be interested to have this supercar… Now, all of them have already been sold out. No to forget go to Frankfurt if You wanna see the Sián in its real shaped. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAMBORGHINI | MOTOR1]
