The upgraded VarioCam system is an engine timing concept that distinguishes between various engine speeds and load states so that timing can be adapted to suit the current power demand. It regulates not only the adjustment of the intake camshafts but also the exhaust camshafts in order to deliver increased power and torque.
Adjustments are controlled imperceptibly by the new electronic engine management. The results are extremely smooth running, better fuel economy, low emissions and, above all, high power and torque across the entire engine speed range.
