With the ever-increasing power of their big V12, engineers at Lamborghini developed an ingenious cooling system. When underhood temperatures exceed the safety margin, four flaps begin to open just ahead of the rear spoiler. The Lamborghini Sian Coupe & Roadster are the first production cars to use smart metals, so they were quick to patent the system before the cars were introduced.
Memory metals are not new, but they are expensive to produce. It is worth it to forego complex electronic parameters and servos, as these memory springs can operate reliably for thousands of heat cycles. Nothing beats an analog solution in our modern, digital world, so we salute the workers in Sant’Agata for thinking outside the box. The Sian represents the future of Lamborghini, so click the button below to learn more from our dealers and stay with us for all your Lamborghini news.
