High fuel use often equates to high performance. Here’s five of the thirstiest cars that are also guaranteed to have the neighbours looking on in envy.

LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR

16.0L/100km Producing up to 552kw means throwing plenty of fuel at the monstrous 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12. But, hey, at least it goes hard!

Lamborghini Huracan

HSV MALOO

15.8L/100km Chevrolet LSA supercharged V8 and Maloo body adds up to one thirsty load-lugger. But the two-seat HSV utility vehicle makes up for it with its serious thrust and sinister noise.

MASERATI GRAN TURISMO

15.5L/100km The Maser’s old-school Ferrari-sourced naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8 isn’t particularly powerful (338kW), but it sounds brilliant and it loves a drink.

FERRARI GTC4 LUSSO

15.3L/100km Ferrari’s replacement for the FF ups the V12 power while lowering fuel consumption (slightly). Nevertheless, the heaviest Ferrari has a tremendous thirst.

ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM EWB

14.9L/100km Long-wheelbase version of the enormous Phantom likes a mighty gulp from its 6.7-litre V12, especially when sprinting to 100km/h in 5.9sec.
