Auto Motor and Sport Sweden has obtained documents that reveal the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador will come equipped with a multi-cylinder displacement system that deactivates six-cylinders when they aren't needed.

The system will reportedly be standard and paired with engine start/stop technology. When the driver hits the accelerator, the engine will react in just 180 milliseconds. Interestingly, it will be powered by a capacitor instead of a battery which saves approximately 3 kg (7 lbs).

Thanks to all these changes, the Aventador will reportedly average 16.0 L/100km (14.7 mpg US / 17.6 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 370 g/km. This compares to the current model's rating of 17.2 L/100km (13.7 mpg US / 16.4 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 398 g/km.

Besides the fuel-saving technologies, the Aventador will be equipped with stiffer springs and retuned dampers that will deliver a more comfortable driving experience. There will also be higher quality switchgear, a revised instrument cluster (that enlarges the numbers on the speedometer) and a variety of carbon fiber accessories.

The 2013 Aventador will likely be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, so stay tuned for full details.
