Lamborghini Sián review

Published: 03 Mar 2021


What should I be paying?

Funnily enough, it’s hard to get lease costs for one of these. But just to give you a ballpark figure, 36 monthly repayments at zero APR with 10 per cent down up front (that’s £250,000…) would work out at £62,500 per month. A figure that would buy you a company-wide fleet of 100 Merc A45s.

And don’t expect much in the way of economy either. Lamborghini claims the Sián will return 15.2mpg while putting out an average of 447g/km of CO2. On the track at Dunsfold we were getting less than 5mpg. But fuel costing about a pound a mile is chicken feed to those prepared to pay millions for the latest hypercar. What concerns them are residual values – what the Sián will be worth a few years down the line. Will it have been a good investment or not. That one is in the lap of the gods, but as long as the electric car market keeps expanding and nothing arrives to replace the fire and fury of a V12, cars such as the Sián will always be in demand.

Objectively speaking, it’s simply not worth £2.5 million when a standard Aventador SVJ does 95 per cent the same thing for about 15 per cent of the outlay. But that’s not the point. There will only ever be 63 Sián coupes and a further 19 roadsters. Exclusivity alone justifies the value for those that can afford the entry price.
