In this teaser from the upcoming series of , Chris Harris gets behind the wheel of the Sián – Lamborghini’s first foray into hybridity. But this isn’t a petrol-sipping eco-mobile – “no $£*!, Sherlock” we hear you cry – no, it stars Lambo’s famous V12 and doesn’t even have a traditional hybrid battery. The hybrid system, instead, is powered by a super-capacitor – lighter and faster discharging than a lithium-ion battery – and is largely used to torque-fill through gear changes. Sound intriguing? Let’s see what Chris makes of this new handful from the raging bull…Want to see the full review? Tune in to new this Sunday 8pm on BBC One.

moving around it is sodding fast he’s asking lots of questions of my driving this is not only the most powerful lamborghini ever made it’s the fastest two over 217 miles an hour yeah okay this is a very very fast car and when it comes to the whole hybrid thing the cyan is also a very different car the engine is no downsized fuel zipper but lamborghini’s very large very thirsty six and a half liter v12 and unlike other hybrids that you can plug into the mains the cn only gets electricity from its own brakes it doesn’t even have a battery instead it uses something else tucked away behind my head but in front of the engine is something called a super capacitor it sounds very cool and it is very cool now a normal battery stores electricity in chemical format so it has to convert electricity into a chemical and that takes time that’s why your battery takes time to charge but a supercapacitor stores electricity as electricity which means it charges much faster but most importantly it can chuck it out much faster too which means instant power so when you break hard into a corner you see it recharging and then when you accelerate out the other side you see it boosting clever stuff
