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).

It is pretty hard to deny that the new Aventador is indeed a Lamborghini, with its design overtly telling us that this new sports car is not just superbly elegant, but also aggressively powerful and dynamic. Its exterior is readily defined by its dynamic proportions, precise surfaces and exact lines –all pointing to the Lamborghini Aventador being a moving work of art, one that other people couldn’t help but gaze at because of its splendid beauty.

Of course, the new Aventador – featuring a carbon fiber monocoque -- is undeniably a product of Lamborghini’s design principle in which form follows. In fact, every detail on the exterior of the new Lamborghini Aventador is a product of function. However, its spectacular and breathtaking beauty is in reality a result of its quest for speed.

Defining the Lamborghini Aventador looks are its impressive dimensions of 4.78 meters (188.19 inches) of length, 2.26 m (88.98 in.) of width -- including exterior mirrors -- and 1.136 m (44.72 in.) in height. This height extends when its doors open upward – just like on Lamborghini’s previous V12 models like the already iconic Countach, Diablo and Murcielago.

Moreover, the Lamborghini Aventador features electronically managed air intakes, an aerodynamic element found in its immediate predecessor -- the Murciélago. The air intakes could open depending on the outdoor temperature as well as on the required cooling air. Customers who want a bolder and extrovert version of the Lamborghini Aventador could avail of an optional transparent engine bonnet.
