2013 Lamborghini Aventador

2013 Lamborghini Aventador

The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador  is reported to becoming out with a number of changes . However the most notable changes to the Aventador  will be the reduction in exhaust emissions and improved fuel efficiency of the thirsty 6.5 litre V12 engine. Lamborghini hopes to do this by pairing cylinder deactivation under light loads and engine start-stop technology.

The cylinder deactivation on the Aventador will work by cutting 6 of the 12 cylinders when they are not needed.

What is however interesting with these changes is that the Lamborghini may pioneer the use of supercapacitors rather than a lithium-ion battery to provide the stored energy to restart the engine after a stop. These supercapacitors are lighter than any battery of the same energy capacity and deliver more power quickly. In the case of the Aventador it is estimated to take 180 milliseconds to restart the engine.

The result of these changes on the 2013 Aventador is purportedly a fuel consumption of 16 L/100km compared to the current 17.2 L/100km and a reduction of CO2 emissions from 398 g/km to 370 g/km.
