    2013 Lamborghini Aventador To Feature Cylinder-Deactivation

    Due to political pressure to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, many carmakers are working on technologies to make their models more efficient and cleaner. According to an article published by Auto, Motor and Sport Sweden, the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador will come with cylinder-deactivation technology.
    The technology works by cutting down cylinder operation from firing twelve pistons to just six, effectively making the 6.5-litre V12 temporarily a V6. When the engine’s full complement of cylinders is needed, all of them operate normally. But when the car is cruising, shutting down several of the cylinders ensures an improved fuel economy and less emissions.
    The cylinder-deactivation technology will be paired with a start-stop system, which automatically shuts down and restarts the engine to reduce the amount of time the engine spends idling, thereby further reducing fuel consumption and emissions. When the accelerator is hit, the system will kick in within 180 milliseconds.
    In true tradition of weight saving, Lamborghini opted for a capacitor instead of a battery which saves about 3kg (7lbs) to power the start-stop system. A capacitor is an electronic device that stores electric energy. It is similar to a battery, but is smaller, lightweight and charges up much quicker.
    With these upgrades, fuel economy will improve from the current 17.2L/100km to 16.0L/100km. Emissions are also set to drop from 398g of C02/km to 370g/km.
    The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador will feature a few other modifications, these include stiffer springs and retuned dampers to enhance comfort, some changes to the instrument cluster with enlarged numbers on the gauges, improved switches and variety of carbon fiber accessories.
    The updated Aventador is expected to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this September.

    I really hate when politics get involved with luxury cars.
    Like this will make 0 impact on anything besides pissing off owners. I hope you can just go to a dealer and they can turn this nonsense off

    I don't see why it wouldn't be able to. Most other non-exotics, with this feature, can have it removed by tuning it out.

    Why would they do this, last time I checked Supercars are not known for great gas milage as they are not daily drivers, which this technology is meant for. They also don't mention how this will effect the performance and signature sound. If anything this should be a factory option at the dealers and not shipped with the cars.

    Y'all need to have a little more faith in Lamborghini. You can be pretty sure this will affect the car in street mode, below certain speeds. In sport and track modes and while you are on the gas . . . Sant'Agata isn't going to turn off half your engine. Grab a clue, folks.

    This is so they don't win the "worst fuel consumption" anymore, that's all.

    yes but when i pay $400k for a V12 supercar, i want all 12 cylinders working all the goddamn time. i dont want half of them to shut off because some dick head in a emissions agency thinks that turning off cylinders in my aventador will save the seals. i wish lambo could just tell them to eat nails and go on a trampoline.
