It doesn’t matter if you produce supercars, subcompacts, or semi trucks, U.S. and European governments are clamping down on fuel economy and emissions. While hybrid powertrains becoming a popular option, even in the hypercar realm, more traditional high-performance machines are being forced to get creative.
Lamborghini (which just purchased Ducati, allegedly in part to improve its corporate average fuel economy), is reportedly set to apply features like cylinder deactivation and stop/start to its Aventador supercar.

Additionally, the engine will benefit from stop/start system that employs a capacitor rather than a traditional battery.
