Very rarely does a super sports car think about saving fuel? It is all about packing as much power as possible to get the maximum output, which results in massive fuel consumption. But with the world’s leading companies looking at the green side, Lamborghini couldn’t be left far behind. The brand new 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 gives a better fuel efficiency with cylinder deactivation and an innovative start/stop system.
With one of the world’s most advanced start/stop systems, the new Aventador can deliver the energy restart after a routine traffic stop through high-performance capacitors known as supercaps. It might sound fancy and technical but what these supercars basically do is bring the car to full V12 power in a very fast 180 milliseconds, one of the world’s fastest systems. Also, keeping in mind Lamborghinis lightweight objective, this unit reduces the overall weight by 3 KGs as it supplies power to the car’s electronic systems. Guess what the best part about this system is? It lasts the entire vehicle life virtually.
The Cylinder Deactivation System is another feature on this new LP 700-4, and this comes in handy when the car goes below a speed of 135 km/hr. The CDS acts up in less than 135 km/hr and turns one cylinder bank, effectively making the car run as an inline 6. The smallest of acceleration and the V12 kicks right back in, taking the car’s power to full capacity.
These new systems have brought out the best in Aventador’s fuel efficiency bring consumption down to 16 liters/ 100 KM, and reduced CO2 emissions from 398 g/km to 370 g/km.
