Integrated dry-sump lubrication

Integrated dry-sump lubrication ensures a reliable supply of oil even when a sporty driving style is adopted. It also has additional cooling functions.

The oil tank is located in the engine, thereby eliminating the need for an external oil tank, which saves both space and weight. To reduce power loss and increase efficiency, an electronically controlled oil pump supplies the lubricating points inside the engine as and when required. When demand is low, the oil pump is operated at reduced power, thereby saving fuel.
