A cutting edge concept....give us a reference!

Now, so far as I know, BMW has not spec'd any sacrificial cylinders in their engines, needing all of them for locomotion as they do, perhaps now the design of yesteryear.

However. The Volkswagen Group may have done so covertly, accounting for their sluggardly performance, Bugatti excepted.

GM is reputed to be far along in development of same, in submissive compliance with Obama Administration guidelines. Ford has refused to participate.

Please keep us posted on this!!!!
