Aventador Getting Cylinder Deactivation
Just because we believe people with the money to buy a supercar can also afford to fill it up, doesn’t mean that they will. This can sometimes be a deal-breaker when it comes to a sale, and Lamborghini is finally doing something about this. Something strange!
For next year’s Aventador, they will introduce cylinder deactivation, which cuts six of them when they’re not needed. This system, which is also fitted to the Mercedes SLK55 AMG, will be standard on the Aventador and will be paired to engine start/stop technology.
With this system, the Aventador will reportedly do 16 l/100km or 14.7 mpg US on the combined cycle.
Let’s just hope you can turn the system off if you don’t want it!
