News for the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4: More efficiency with cylinder deactivation and innovative stop-start system.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is extending its leading position among super sports cars with groundbreaking technologies – an innovative and extremely fast stop-start system with supercaps for energy storage and cylinder deactivation under partial load bring significant savings in fuel consumption. Plus, the 2013 Aventador comes with a host of new individualization options.

Automobili Lamborghini is using a highly advanced and utterly unique technology for its new stop-start system in the Aventador. The energy for re-start following a stop phase (e.g. at a traffic light) is delivered by high-performance capacitors known as supercaps. They enable extremely fast start-up – full V12 power is available again in a barely detectable 180 milliseconds, significantly faster than with conventional systems. And, in keeping with Lamborghini's lightweight design philosophy, this new technology also delivers a weight saving of three kilograms. The classic vehicle battery supplies only the electronic systems, occupies very little space and lasts virtually the entire vehicle life.
