The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is extending its leading position among super sports cars with
groundbreaking technologies – an innovative and extremely fast start/stop system with supercaps for energy storage and cylinder deactivation under partial load bring significant savings in fuel consumption. The energy for restart following a stop phase (e.g. at a traffic light) is delivered by high-performance capacitors known as supercaps. They enable extremely fast start-up – full V12 power is available again in a barely detectable 180 milliseconds, significantly faster than with regular systems. The Cylinder Deactivation System deactivates under speeds, allowing the power unit to run as an inline six. But with just the slightest movement of the gas pedal, the V12 engine with its 700 hp is back online. Both CDS and the start/stop system work incredibly quick and the driver won’t really notice them, thus having no impact on the overall driving experience.
