Automobili Lamborghini is using a highly advanced and utterly unique technology for its new start/stop system in the Aventador. 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 conventional systems. And, in keeping with Lamborghini’s lightweight design philosophy, this new technology also delivers a weight saving of three kilograms. The classic vehicle battery supplies only the electronic systems, occupies very little space and lasts virtually the entire vehicle life.
