2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Gets New Fuel Saving Tech

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is now more fuel efficient, thanks to cylinder deactivation and innovative stop-start system.

Aventador’s new stop-start system enables extremely fast start-up – full V12 power is available again in a barely detectable 180 milliseconds, significantly faster than with conventional systems. This new technology also delivers a weight saving of three kilograms.

The second fuel saving tech is the Cylinder Deactivation System (CDS), that works under low load and at speeds of less than 84mph. The CDS deactivates one cylinder bank, allowing the power unit to run as an inline six.

With just the slightest movement of the gas pedal, the 690bhp V12 engine is back at full power.

Thanks to these two new fuel saving technologies, the average fuel consumption of the Aventador is improved by seven percent to 17.6mpg. At highway speeds of around 130 km/h the reduction in consumption and emissions is as much as 20 percent. The CO2 emissions have been reduced from 398 g/km to 370 g/km.
