As you may know already, nowadays, even the supercars need to be fuel-efficient and as a result the Lamborghini Aventador will also need less fuel to travel. Now don’t think that the Italian bull will get a smaller engine as it is not, in fact Lamborghini Aventador will keep its V12 engine but will get some new technology.
Just like some other sports cars, the Aventador will be capable to shut-off its cylinders and the V12 engine will become a V6. Moreover, the Aventador will also receive a start/stop system. All of these will be seen on the 2013MY Aventador and according to Auto Motor & Sport the car will need only 180 milliseconds in order to start the engine using the start/stop system.
Furthermore, the system will offer a 20% drop in fuel consumption. If the current Lamborghini Aventador needs 17.2 liters of gasoline to travel 100 km and emits 389 grams of CO2 per km, the 2013MY will need 16.0 liters of fuel and emit only 370 grams of C02 per kilometer.
The specs of the car will remain the same: a 6.5-liter V12 engine delivering 515 kW / 700 hp and 690 Newton meters (509 lb-ft) at 5,500 rpm capable to push the car form 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
