For Lamborghini, 2022 is the year of the V12, its legendary 12-cylinder engine that has powered iconic models for almost 60 years of history and became a symbol of technological innovation, vision, and engineering expertise: the foundations of Lamborghini’s DNA. Before entering the hybridization phase in 2023 with the advent of the first series-production model, Lamborghini is paying tribute to its most memorable engine in a retrospective account of the cars that have featured it. The first ever Lamborghini to leave the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory in 1964 was the 350 GT, more recently taken to the historic center of Bologna for an epic encounter with the latest V12 in the brand’s history, the Aventador Ultimae.
2021 Range Rover Velar P400e PHEV - The Engine
"The Range Rover Velar's range of powertrains does, however, offer some more novelties in the 2021 vintage. For example, the 3.0 liter in-line six-cylinder engine from the Ingenium family will be introduced under the Velar hood for the first time. The modern diesel and gasoline power units shine with their gentle development of their exuberant power and contemporary efficiency and environmental compatibility. MHEV has played a decisive role in this: 48-volt mild hybrid technology for increased performance with reduced emissions and consumption. The new in-line six-cylinder engines, developed and produced independently by Jaguar Land Rover, are available in Velar as the D300 diesel version with 221 kW (300 hp) or the P400 petrol version with 294 kW (400 hp) - coupled as standard in the R-Dynamic with electronically controlled air suspension for pampering Range Rover comfort. Combined with the latest engine technology, the MHEV package ensures the desired and required balance of performance and efficiency. The mild hybrid system uses a belt-starter alternator that captures the energy normally lost during braking or deceleration and directs it to the 48-volt lithium-ion battery located under the trunk. There the energy is available for later use: for example, to support the gasoline engine during acceleration or for an even smoother and faster response of the start-stop system.
In the course of some proverbial fine-tuning, Audi Sport GmbH is increasing the sportiness of the Audi RS 4 Avant and Audi RS 5. The new competition package is bursting with extras that both sharpen the cars’ appearance and make for a more emotional driving experience. With its optional coilover suspension (RS sport suspension pro), the competition plus package boasts a maximum in dynamics and driving fun while not compromising its top suitability for everyday use. Sometimes less is more: Reduced insulation between the engine compartment and the interior means the RS 4 Avant and RS 5 will thrill customers with an exciting, next-level sound experience. The potent biturbo V6 has 331 kW (450 PS) of power and a torque of 600 newton meters from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm4. The Audi RS 4 Avant and RS 5 with the competition packages will be available from dealers starting July. Prices start at 7.875 euros for the competition package and 11,875 euros for the competition plus package.
Detailed solutions, on which the Audi aerodynamics experts have worked closely with the designers, provide another gain in range. At the front of the vehicle, there are narrow vertical bars below the headlights, which act as pre-spoilers and direct the airstream so it flows smoothly along the vehicle’s side. The effect is a gain of five kilometers. A minute step on the exterior mirror housings with a radius of 0.5 millimeters allows the airflow to cling there for longer.
