Lamborghini has made their latest bull, the Aventador, more environmentally friendly by incorporating start/stop function and cylinder deactivation technology into the 2013 MY LP 700-4.

Hence, the revised Aventador is akin to a plate of Char Kway Teow prepared with healthier oil the sin is still there but to a lesser extent. But fear not, the Aventador will still "taste" just as nice, if not better due modifications to its chassis.

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.

As for the start/stop system, it deactivates the engine when the car comes to a halt. The engine is fired up in a lightning-quick 180 milliseconds when the accelerator is depressed. This is achieved by the use of high-performance capacitors called Supercaps.

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.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
