VarioCam Plus is a two-in-one engine concept for adjusting the intake camshafts and switching the lift of the intake valves.
The system first differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum performance. The electronic engine management system then seamlessly adapts valve operation to the prevailing conditions.
This results in instant acceleration, extremely smooth running and an extraordinary level of tractive power, but with a comparatively low level of fuel consumption.
