Sián Roadster

Date posted : July 19. 2020

I've been talking about it ever since the Lamborghini Sian was introduced as a coupe back in September 2019 at the IAA in Frankfurt ... they have to be doing a Roadster version of this hybrid Lamborghini too ... and nearly an entire year later Automobili Lamborghini SpA released just that, the Lamborghini Sian Roadster (no more FKP37 designation on the open-top version).

You might also have seen the many renders I made on how I thought the Sian Roadster would look, and to be honest ... the actual production version does look very close indeed, and this didn't come as a surprise: there is no roof on the Sian Roadster.

Just like the Aventador J, the Veneno Roadster and, the Centenario Roadster ... the latest limited edition, or few-off as Lamborghini calls it, doesn't have any roof designed for it, this is open-top motoring at it's finest, a true Barchetta from Sant'Agata ...and frankly, I like it a lot more than the coupe, but that might just be my love for convertibles in general.

To avoid turbulence at high speed, there are side windows on the Lamborghini Sian Roadster, and while they are full size at the front, they dip down considerably when they reach the end of the door, which naturally opens to the sky like all Lamborghini flagship V12 models, and the Sian, despite being a hybrid model, comes with the famous 6.5-liter V12 engine derived from the Aventador, power output is now up to 785 hp, add the 34 hp hybrid electric motor and the Sian Roadster puts down a total of 819 hp, the same as the coupe version by the way.

Top speed for this roofless supercar is over 350 km/h while acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is completed in less than 2.9 seconds, using the supercapacitor to store energy, the latter is charged every time the Sian Roadster brakes, the additional power is immediately available for increased torque ... at speeds over 130 km/h the electric motor does disconnect and the V12 flies solo the rest of the acceleration ...

I'm not really a fan of the original white, blue and gold interior in the Sian Roadster, so I went with red

The presentation model of the Lamborghini Sian Roadster is finished in a new Blu Uranus paint specifically selected by the Lamborghini Centro Stile for this model, the wheels and certain livery parts are painted in Oro Electrum ... to emphasize the electrification of the Sian and Sian Roadster, on the inside they opted for a Bianco upholstery completed with Blu Glauco stitching and piping an Oro Electrum details ... as the new air vents are one of the first parts on a Lamborghini to be 3D printed, the customer can customize these.

Rumor has it the Lamborghini Sian FKP37 and this new Sian Roadster are both listed at an MSRP of $3,600,000 to $3,700,000 ... same price for the coupe and roadster, and while they will build 63 coupes, production on the Roadster is limited to only 19 units ... both production numbers adding up to 1963, the year the company was founded ... the official press release states all 19 are already sold.

While most of us will never be able to buy one of these Lamborghini Sian Roadsters, this doesn't mean you can't have fun to create your bespoke one virtually in our new LamboCONFIG configurator.
