Always wanting to turn heads by presenting new machines, Lamborghini recently unveiled a luxury yacht inspired by Sián, its hybrid car produced in a few dozen copies in 2020. Called Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, the boat is designed in collaboration with the Italian manufacturer Sea Group.
According to Lamborghini, in addition to referring to Sián via its Y-shaped front-low part, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is also a nod to the roadsters of the 60s and 70s thanks to its hardtop.
2000 hp for 24 tonnes
Because the homage can only be aesthetic, the yacht is also powered by two 2000 hp V12s, for a maximum speed of 60 knots (just over 111 km / h). Thanks to a carbon fiber body, it reaches the extremely featherweight, for a boat, of 24 tons. With its 19.2 meters long, Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 has a sporty and aerodynamic silhouette.
The interior is a faithful adaptation of a luxury car cabin transformed for a boat. Along with all the navigation systems in vogue at the moment, it features a steering wheel-like bar, sporty-looking and carbon-fiber-trimmed seats and on / off buttons for each engine. Two interior configurations will be available. Wealthy customers who can afford it will also have a choice of a variety of colors and exterior liveries. The first example should be delivered in early 2021.
3D printing of the Sián
"If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on the water, that would be my vision. I am delighted to celebrate this fruitful collaboration", welcomes Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Lamborghini in a statement. If you want to learn more about the yacht, the builder has released a 15-minute video, to see below.
And because good news never comes alone, Lamborghini published at the end of July some information about the 3D printing process that comes into play for the manufacture of its Sián hybrid. A method developed by the Swiss design office Centro Stile of Fiat and the Ad Personam personalization department of Lamborghini, located in Bologna.
Nylon 12 and Epoxy 82
The design data is sent to a large 3D printer. This prints the structure, layer after layer, using a nylon 12-based "ink". A process that can take up to 65 hours. The result is then mixed with Epoxy 82, a material with properties similar to those of fiberglass.
Given their resistant properties (nylon 12 is heat resistant up to 95 ° C and Epoxy up to 130 ° C), the parts resulting from 3D printing are used to manufacture the structure of the vehicle.
