Lamborghini’s 2013 Aventador is set to go on exhibit at the Paris Motor Show with a suite of revisions that will make the gas glutton lighter and more fuel efficient.

Starting September 29, spectators will have the opportunity to peek under the hood at the Aventador’s new 6.5 liter, 12 cylinder V6 that is capable of cylinder deactivation – also known as variable displacement. By closing off the intake and exhaust valves to half of its cylinders, the new motor will burn less fuel driving at low speeds. When throttled, it takes only 180 milliseconds for the Lambo’s full power to come back online.
