The new LP 700-4 is 7 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor.

The stop/start system developed by Lamborghini features high performance capacitors known as supercaps which deliver the energy required to restart the 700-horsepower V12 of the Aventador LP 700-4, following a stop phase. Lamborghini says that this system is lighter by 3 kilograms and faster than other conventional forms taking only 180 milliseconds to start up the motor. A conventional battery is used for the vehicle’s electronic systems and is claimed to last the entire vehicle life.

The second piece of tech is Lambo’s Cylinder Deactivation System or CDS. Under low load and at speeds of less than 135 km/h, the CDS deactivates one cylinder bank, allowing the V12 to run as an inline six. When the driver applies the accelerator, the system re-engages all the cylinders.

With these two new ushering,  Lamborghini claims that the average fuel consumption of the Aventador LP 700-4 has dropped by 7 percent to 16 litres/100km. At highway speeds of around 130 kph the reduction in consumption is as much as 20 percent. Even the CO2 emissions of the Aventador LP 700-4 has been reduced from 398 g/km to 370 g/km.
