Yeah they do some trick thing with reigniting the existing gas mixture in the cylinders or some such. There was a technical description of it floating around somewhere.

If you listen when ASS restarts the engine you'll notice the whirr/chug-chug of the starter is absent. The engine just grunts and starts.
That explains why I've always liked the sound of my engine when it starts up from ASS
