22% of the 22 Least Economical Supercars are Made by VW

By: Jason Siu

It should hardly come as a surprise, but it surprised us, all the same, to find out that the Volkswagen Group makes five of the 22 least fuel-efficient supercars on the road.
Now, supercars are designed to do one—maybe two things. Go fast, look cool. Everything else falls by the wayside and expecting a supercar to also sip fuel is like expecting Arnold Schwarzenegger to fit into a clown car. That’s not to say, though, that the results aren’t entertaining.
It probably won’t come as a shock to find out that the Bugatti Chiron is the least economical supercar on Jalopnik’s list of fuel burniest supercars, based on EPA data.
Its 8.0 liter W16 is, after all, simply enormous. The engine follows in Bugatti’s rich tradition of making elephantine engines. Weighing in at 880 lbs, the engine alone weighs nearly as much as a whole 1962 Lotus 25 F1 car.
Add to that all the leather, metal, and frippery that adorn the luxurious Bugatti and you get a mile per gallon rated at just 11, combined. But you do get access to 1,500 hp, so it’s probably worth it.
The second least economical vehicle it, again, won’t surprise you to learn is from Italy. The Lamborghini Aventador S, with its 12 cylinders, 740 hp, and 6.5 liters of displacement manages a measly 12 mpg, combined, though that does go all the way up to 17 on the highway.
The other VW products are the Bentley Continental Supersports (14 mpg), the Audi R8 Spyder (17 mpg), and the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive (19 mph).
Other highlights from the list are the Jeep Grand Cherokee (wait for it) Trackhawk, which makes 707 hp and goes 13 miles per gallon; the Koenigsegg Agera RS, which manages an impressive 13 mpg, despite making over 1,100 hp; the BMW M6, which despite kind of not being a super car will only propel you 17 miles per gallon of fuel; and Acura NSX Hybrid, whose electrified drivetrain only returns 21 mpg.
All of which is interesting largely because, despite its stated intention of leading the world in efficiency, the Volkswagen Group still makes quite a few cars that are the opposite. But don’t tell anyone that or else someone might notice and scrap some of these awesome projects.
