    engines are equipped with the same parallel sequential turbocharging system and third generation common rail fuel injection system Throttle response is staggering with maximum torque available from only 2 000rpm The 3 0 litre diesel can significantly outperform its rivals by delivering 500Nm in only 500 milliseconds from idle When it was introduced at 2010 model year the parallel sequential turbocharging system was the first of its kind to be fitted to a V engine anywhere in the world The twin turbochargers work sequentially to provide best in class torque at low speeds and pack a huge punch at high speeds A variable geometry medium sized turbocharger is in use most of the time during average acceleration and up to motorway cruising speeds and performs with no discernible lag This is more efficient than series turbocharging systems where the smaller primary turbo increases energy losses The third generation common rail fuel injection system operates at 2 000bar the piezo injectors minimising noise while optimising combustion The system operates in metering mode supplying just the right amount of fuel to the injectors rather than returning it to the tank and wasting energy in the process All diesel models are now fitted with a DPF and have an advanced EGR system to reduce NOx ZF 8HP70 automatic gearbox The remarkable ZF 8HP70 transmission delivers unrivalled response for driving pleasure while driving fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions down to an all time low Eight speeds provide closer ratios and a greater overall ratio spread while the higher overdrive ratio compliments the huge torque of the 3 0 LR SDV6 reducing fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions Efficiency is further improved by the internal mechanical layout of the 8HP70 which means that no more than two internal clutches are open at any one time The 8HP70 is packed with energy saving features The hydraulic actuating system is more efficient too the hydraulic pump drawing less energy from the engine The torque converter is calibrated to lock up at lower speeds and operating temperature reducing fuel consumption and once again taking advantage of the 3 0 litre diesel engine s immense low end torque Transmission Idle Control seamlessly and transparently selects neutral when the car is stationary and the engine idling in drive reducing drag on the engine and saving fuel In hot conditions it selects a lower gear to run the engine and air conditioning pump faster to cool down the cabin quickly In cold conditions it runs the engine faster to reduce warm up time and emissions The 8HP70 offers performance benefits too Taking just 200 milliseconds to complete the entire shift event the 8HP70 gears change with an imperceptible interruption of torque for smoothness equalling that of a dual clutch transmission while providing a more sophisticated driving experience The 8HP70 matches the engine speed to its turbine speed in anticipation of oncoming downshifts for an absolutely smooth transition from one ratio to the next Closer ratios also contribute to making individual shifts smoother Driver Type Detection monitors driver inputs and the car s systems to optimise the response of the gearbox to the driver s style while Curve Detection makes sure the gearbox avoids unwanted upshifts and holds on to the same gear when taking a sequence of bends The gearbox also monitors the driver s use of the brake together with the rate of deceleration to set up the correct gear for entry and exit to the corner The 8HP70 does not have to change to a lower gear sequentially and can skip up to six ratios if necessary for much faster response when preparing to overtake Driver controls include steering wheel paddles as standard enabling the driver to take control of gear shifting manually The rotary switch selects park reverse neutral drive or sport modes the last of these optimising the gearbox response times for maximum acceleration improved response and sharper upshifts Advanced V8 engine combines high performance with efficiency The astonishing 5 0 LR V8 naturally aspirated engine is a lightweight aluminium alloy engine which is both super efficient and compliant with the stringent US ULEV2 and European EU5 emissions regulations The 5 0 LR V8 produces 375PS and 510Nm torque with low CO 2 emissions of 328g km One of the secrets of the V8 s efficiency is the centrally mounted multi hole spray guided fuel injection system delivering fuel at a pressure of up to 2175psi 150bar directly to each cylinder The injectors are positioned to deliver fuel precisely to the centre of the combustion chamber for maximum air fuel mixing and accurate combustion control The charge cooling effects of the direct injection system allow a high compression ratio of 11 5 1 which further improves engine efficiency During the engine warm up phase the combustion system employs multiple injection mode strategies to deliver 50 percent more heat for fast catalyst warm up and substantially reduced emissions A number of clever design features include the industry first torque actuated variable camshaft timing on all four cams Unlike conventional systems which rely on oil pressure these are actuated by the positive and negative torques generated by the opening and closing of the valves reducing energy consumption Cam profile switching CPS selects either a profile suitable for low speed running or another which gives increased lift for high performance This provides the Discovery 4 with exceptional low end torque to negotiate demanding terrain and allows it to become fleet of foot when conditions allow Torque and power is also optimised by a variable inlet manifold which changes the length of its eight inlet tracts The manifold switches between a 680mm inlet tract to provide high torque at low revs and a 350mm inlet path allowing maximum power at high revs The precise position is optimised throughout the rev range at all times The engine also features a unique reverse flow cooling system where coolant passes through the cylinder heads before the block This allows the heads to remain
