The Bite Magazine - Autmn/Winter 2020 - Issue 28

bitecars strument panel interprets the car cockpit in a nautical style, completely integrating all navigation and control systems in- cluding the start/stop button, of which there are two in this model, one for each engine. The first boat will be available at the beginning of 2021.   On the Outside  You cannot deny that the long sculptured contours and characteristic aero wings on the Sián give it an unmistakably powerful profile. It has a very low front with an integrat- ed carbon fibre splitter that houses the iconic Lamborghini Y-shape headlights. With optimised aerodynamic efficiency and technological prowess, the airflow is directed through the front splitters and front bonnet, as well as the side air intakes and outlets, and over the rear spoiler, with no loss of aerodynamic efficiency.  On the rear, the active cooling vanes use materials-science technology patented by the marque. The operation of the vanes is triggered by the reaction of these smart-material elements to the temperature generated by the exhaust sys- tem, causing them to rotate and provide an elegant and light- weight cooling solution. The rear of the Sián also incorpo- rates Lamborghini’s evocative hexagon design that includes six hexagonal taillights inspired by the Countach.  The exterior design of the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 yacht is characterised by a super sportive silhouette, with a cutting-edge but thoroughly nautical appearance. The hull and the superstructure are created from a high-performance shell, developed by naval engineers specialising in hydrody- namic sciences. The design lines created by Italian design- er Marcello Gandini is derived from the Miura and Coun- tach of the ‘60s and ‘70s, while the hardtop is inspired by Lamborghini roadsters, with sun and wind protection, and outstanding aerodynamic performance.   Final Word  With only 19 models of the Lamborghini Sián Roadster and 63 of the Sian Coupé made, these particular numbers are very significant: 1963 is the year Ferruccio Lamborghini founded his namesake company. Another fascinating obser- vation is the FKP 37 after the model name which symbolises the initials of the late Volkswagen Group Chairman Ferdi- nand Karl Piëch who died late last year and the year he was born. The homage to the former chairman is honorary since Lamborghini is owned by the Volkswagen Group.  Not surprisingly, all of the models are sold out, with each owner allowed to create exclusive individualities through Lamborghini Centro Stile in conjunction with Lamborghini Ad Personam. These customisations include fully exposed carbon fibre, with custom colours, shaded paintwork, and specific liveries on the exterior and unique trims and an infinite number of combinations of colours and materials. There is even an innovative ‘touch and feel’ leather available, specially developed for the Sián FKP 37.  The speed of both Sián models and the Tecnomar for Lam- borghini 63 is nothing short of exhilarating and phenomenal. When all three take to the road or water, their acceleration speeds will leave you breathless. Also, the coupé and road- ster’s robotic-like design matches the exhaust pipes placed on either side of the model name which when the engine is fired up are like two fire blasting rockets while the yacht, which will be available in numerous colours, cruises through the waters at full speed. fkp-37 sian-roadster
