And even though the lateral motion of con rods contributes to piston friction within the cylinders, and even though this isn't an issue with the multi-link design, the cylinder walls of the VC-Turbo are plasma sprayed, hardened and honed, such that whatever cylinder friction there is is reduced by 44 percent.
Zoe said: "The engine had to be removed from the car, stripped down to the cylinders and pistons and the piston rings and con rods replaced to fix the problem.
