The cylinder deactivation system will shut down one cylinder bank, turning the V12 engine into an inline-six under light loads. Lamborghini commented that the transition is virtually imperceptible to the driver and both emissions and fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 20% at highway speeds of about 128km/h.
Both the systems work together to improve the supercar's fuel efficiency to 16L/100km while decreasing CO2 emissions to 370 g/km.
If you couldn't care less about fuel consumption, you may be glad to know that Lamborghini has enhanced the Aventador's handling while improving ride comfort by using stiffer springs and optimized dampers.
There are also new alloy wheels and an optional carbon fiber package that applies the lightweight material to body parts such as the engine cover, front spoiler and air intakes.
