For the 2016 Huracan, Lamborghini has included cylinder deactivation.

Lamborghini introduced the Huracán LP 610-4 back in 2014. As part of a minor 2016 model year refresh, the folks at Sant’Agata Bolognese are adding a few upgrades to the V10 sports car. The 2016 Huracán features cylinder deactivation for improved fuel economy, retuned 4WD, and a few new options.

The biggest news is the addition of standard cylinder deactivation on both the 2016 Huracán coupe and Spyder. The feature shuts down one of the cylinder banks during light loads, allowing the car to run on five cylinders instead of 10. When the driver drops his foot onto the accelerator, the engine switches seamlessly back to full 10-cylinder mode.

Cylinder deactivation adds a light touch of fuel economy. The EPA puts the 2016 Huracán at 14 mpg city/21 mpg highway/17 mpg combined (16.8/11.2/13.8 l/100km) versus the 14/20/16 mpg (16.8/11.8/14.7 l/100km) of the 2015 model. CO2 emissions drop down to 283 g/km from 290 on the 2015 model. That change doesn’t exactly transform the Lamborghini Huracán into an eco-forward everyday grocery hauler, but it should help owners use a touch less gas on the way to the track – assuming they’re not practicing racing form on the open highway.
