Top Least Fuel Efficient Cars In The World
Today we take a break from all those EVs like the Nissan Leaf or the Tesla Roadster, and we talk about which are the cars that drink the most fuel. Naturally, we begin with the all-mighty Bugatti Veyron that has an 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder engine linked to a 7-speed automatic transmission that can return only 8 mpg in the city and 15 mpg on the highway. This is of course the least efficient car in the world but since it can do more than 400 km/h, who cares?
We continue with two Aston Martins, the DB9 and the DBS. Both of them are powered by the same 5.9-liter 12-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The DB9 is able to return 11 mpg city / 17 mpg highway, while the DBS will do 11 mpg city / 18 mpg highway.
Another car which isn’t suitable for longer trips would have to be the Bentley Continental GTC FFV which is motivated by a massive 6.0-liter, 12-cylinder engine that is coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The car will do 11 mpg while driving in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
We continue with two Rolls Royce models which are powered by a huge 6.7-liter, 12-cylinder engine that is linked to a 6-speed automatic box: Phantom Coupe and the Phantom Drophead Coupe. Both of them can do only 11 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
We have two more Bentley to talk about, the Continental Flying Spur FFV and the Mulsanne. The first one comes with a 6.0-liter, 12-cylinder engine linked to a six-speed transmission and it can do 11 mpg city / 18 mpg highway, just like the Mulsanne that is powered by a 6.8-liter, 12-cylidner engine mated to the same 6-speed box.
The same fuel ratings are achieved by the Rolls Royce Phantom and the Phantom EWB which are available with a 6.7-liter, 12 cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
