Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is a hybrid with a 6.5-liter V12 engine, a 34-horsepower electric motor integrated into the gearbox, and super-capacitor technology. Transmission is a 7-speed ISR semi-automatic. The car employs an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system with a rear mechanical self locking differential.

The Sián name means thunderbolt in the Bolognese dialect. Power is 819 hp.
The super-capacitor offers both weight and power delivery advantages over a battery pack although batteries are better at storing electricity for longer periods. A regenerative braking system helps generate energy to recharge the supercapacitors. The electric motor counters the effect of deceleration and provides a power boost at speeds up to 130 km/h (81 mph). The motor supports low speed maneuvers such as parking and reversing. This is the fastest Lamborghini ever, with 2.8 zero-to-60 time onto a top speed of 217 mph.
63 Siáns will be built (marking the 1963 birthday of the marque).

Ownership will be a very exclusive club with an entry price of $3.6m.
Still smitten and badly in need of one? Too bad, you can't have one as they are sold out.
