Can Supercars Be Fuel-Efficient?
Prejudices and misconceptions are always present in our society, and they can lead us to wrong conclusions in most cases. One such example comes from the automotive industry where people typically believe that supercars and fast machines will consume enormous quantities of gasoline as soon as you turn on the engine. However, the age of gas-guzzling machines is long gone, and modern technologies are allowing car manufacturers to reduce the need for fuel and to produce vehicles that are efficient and luxurious at the same time. We no longer have to make compromises about comfort and fuel-efficiency, and we can now have both, as long as we have enough money to afford one of these supercars.
Renowned for its street racing capabilities, this little speedster is not overly greedy when it comes to fuel, and its 332 horsepower will take you for a ride that can last up to 19 miles per gallon (8.1 km/liter) in the city.
Of course, you will be able to go 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, and you will probably forget about the consumption at those moments.
German cars are synonymous with exceptional quality, and we all know how impressive and a well-known name is Porsche. However, their Boxter model will not need too much fuel since it has a seven-speed automatic transmission, and its 225 horsepower are correctly distributed in this compact vehicle.
Most of us will associate Lotus with James Bond and his convertibles, but Elise is a model can cover up to 34 miles with just one gallon (14.5 km/lit).
Because of its light weight and superior aerodynamics, this supercar can reach from 0 to 60 mph in just 6 seconds, even though it has “only” 134 horsepower under the hood.
LaFerrari is one of the newest additions to the Black Stallion family, and this model is unique and special because it is a hybrid. Yes, just like Prius, it is “green” in nature, due to its two engines (gasoline + electric).
But LaFerrari’s engine is a V12 monster that has 789 horsepower that can take you for 16.6 miles per gallon in city traffic.
