The case in point today is the Lamborghini Sian.

Under the striking and jagged sheetmetal is a traditional V12 engine, but rather than a lithium-ion battery that is often the norm, Lamborghini said it's instead installed the first supercapacitor to operate in a hybrid powertrain.

The supercapacitor has multiple benefits over a traditional battery.

The unit included with the Sian is three times more powerful than a battery and three times lighter than a battery that produces the same power. In supercars, keeping weight out of the equation is always a primary goal.

Weighing just 75 pounds, the supercapacitor and electric motor sit between the cockpit and bulkhead to ensure a perfect weight distribution remains.

Sprints from 20 mph to 40 mph are around 0.2 seconds quicker than the Aventador SVJ and 45 mph to 75 mph happens about 1.2 seconds quicker than today's top Lamborghini.
