These five cars are huge fuel guzzlers

14 Aug 2019 Car Advice

Grey Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

If you're looking to save the planet, here is a brace of cars that aren't helping

As the automotive world looks at ways of reducing the amount of petrol that flows through the engines of the world, let's take a look at the cars that are the worst offenders for guzzling petrol.

 

LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR S

16.9L/100km (claimed)

Producing up to 544kw means throwing plenty of fuel at the monstrous 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12. And it will rarely see a fuel figure anywhere its ambit claim. But, hey, at least it goes hard!

Lamborghini Huracan

 

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE TRACKHAWK

12.1l/100km (claimed)

Jeep's Hellcat V8-powered monster SUV makes a mockery of its claimed combined fuel economy figure in real life - after all, it's a 527kW supercharged motor on board a 2000kg SUV. How does 19L/100km - or 470km from a 93-litre tank - grab you? Right by the credit card, we reckon.

MASERATI GRAN TURISMO

15.5L/100km (claimed)

The Maser’s old-school Ferrari-sourced naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8 isn’t particularly powerful (338kW), but it sounds brilliant... and boy it loves a drink. Expect real-world figures in the very high teens.

FERRARI GTC4 LUSSO

15.3L/100km (claimed)

Ferrari’s replacement for the FF ups the V12 power while lowering fuel consumption (slightly). Nevertheless, the heaviest Ferrari has a tremendous thirst, and you'd have to have the patience of a monk to keep the claimed figure within sight. And we're not that patient. But when you can spend $500k on a car, fuel is probably the least of your worries...

ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM EWB

14.9L/100km (claimed)

The long-wheelbase version of the enormous Phantom enjoys the odd tipple of premium unleaded for its 6.7-litre V12. It's a big car at more than 2.5 tonnes, so we expect that claimed fuel figure to be a tad optimistic. But hey, it's Jeeves' problem to fill it, not yours...
