Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 (50th Anniversary Kit)
The 2013 Aventador leads us to the believe that the basic body style will be a carryover from 2012. However, Aventador definitely boasting the traditional triangle and trapezoid styling.
Also carried over is the ultra-modern carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque. This provides the Aventador with a safe capsule for the driver, as well as added rigidity to help increase its handling.
Carried over from 2012 is the mighty 6.5-liter V-12 engine that pumps out an astonishing 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque.
Lamborghini went into great lengths about the newest additions to the Aventador’s drivetrain for the 2013 model year: the Cylinder Deactivation System (CDS) and the start-stop technology.
The stop-start system will shut the engine off when the car is stationary at a stop light and it will use supercaps – high-performance capacitors – to restart the engine just as soon as you press the gas pedal. Well, maybe not as soon as, but 180 milliseconds after touching the gas. Yeah, that’s faster than any human can ever notice. To boot, this system will also save the Aventador about 3 kg (6.6 lbs), as the supercar will now use only a small battery to power the vehicle electronics, since it is no longer needed to start the car.
Additionally, the CDS will shut down one bank of the V-12 engine under low loads at speeds less than 135 km/h (83.9 mph). This will leave the Aventador cruising around as an in-line 6-cylinder until you need the extra power. No need to worry is a 12berlinetta comes up on your tail, as a quick tap of the throttle and all 12 cylinders start pumping again like nothing happened.
