Why Lamborghini’s First Hybrid Is Bad For The Environment

The Lamborghini FKP 37 Sián is the automaker’s first hybrid. Unlike most hybrids, the Sián isn’t eco-friendly. Instead of a battery pack, Lamborghini is the first automaker to incorporate a supercharger to assist with powering the car. While a supercapacitor plays a large part in making the Sián the fastest production Lamborghini ever, it falls short on mileage and overall fuel-efficiency. The incorporation of new technology is impressive, but it doesn’t outperform other hybrids in its class like the Porsche 918 spyder.

Why Lamborghini’s First Hybrid Is Bad For The Environment

Inside Japan’s Underground Custom Lamborghini Crew

Meet Shinichi Morohoshi. This is his workshop, Fighting Star, in Edogawa City, Tokyo. It’s a collective dedicated to one thing: customizing supercars, mainly Lamborghinis.  He is known for his LED customizations and flashy exteriors. During the day, the cars sit in the garage or homes, but at night they come alive on the Tokyo Expressway. 

Despite the international popularity of his rides, it’s still difficult for him to drive at speed through central Tokyo because of traffic regulations.  His customers are international. Fans will recognize him as the Outlaw icon in 2015’s “Need for Speed” game. Seeing one of the Fighting Star cars is like watching the 2006 action movie “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.”

We caught up with him in Tokyo.
