Which Supercar Can Go the Farthest Between Fill-Ups?
When it comes to producing and shopping for a supercar, its fuel efficiency is likely the last thing on anyone’s mind. Performance, handling, and aerodynamics are likely the highest points of interest. However, if you were to own a supercar, there’s no denying that you would need to put gas in it – so fuel efficiency is still important. But which supercar in the current market can go the farthest between fill-ups?
The most fuel-efficient supercar is more exotic than you might expect
The supercar that will take you the farthest between fill-ups is the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. The SF90 Stradale uses a plug-in hybrid system that emits 986 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. With that kind of power, the exotic sports car can rocket up to 60 mph from a standstill in just 2 seconds, which is something that your Toyota Prius or Hyundai Ioniq definitely cannot do.
As for gas mileage, the EPA says that the Ferrari SF90 Stradale can get up to 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway in its normal hybrid form. Factor in the all-electric part of the system, which is good for up 15 miles of gas-free driving, and it should get 70 MPGe and about 330 miles on a single tank.
That makes this Ferrari quite the wonder, especially since all that power and mileage comes from a unique mid-engine setup. That setup includes a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine paired to three electric motors. This powerful combination sends the power to all four wheels, making the SF90 Stradale the first plug-in, mid-engine hybrid Ferrari with all-wheel drive.
The Acura NSX takes second place
Speaking of exotic cars with hybrid engines, the Acura NSX takes second place. The NSX is powered by a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that, like the Ferrari, is combined with a trio of electric motors to power the front and rear wheels. Motor1 says the NSX can operate on all-electric power, but it’s “laughable.”
We’re guessing they are referring to the car’s “quiet mode,” which allows the car to be driven at Prius-like decibels levels to appease your neighbors. That all being said, the EPA rates the NSX at 21 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, with a maximum range of 328 miles between fill-ups.
That’s pretty good for such an exotic car.
The Lamborghini Huracan can get you pretty far between gas stations as well
While the Acura NSX and the Ferrari SF90 Stradale are busy saving the trees with their hybrid powertrains, the Lamborghini Huracan sticks to a good old V10. The Huracan is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces a whopping 630 hp. That’s good for sub-three-second 0-60 mpg times and fuel estimates in the low teens.
However, the EPA says the Lambo can go up to 316 miles before needing a refill of dinosaur juice. Again, that’s not bad for an exotic car of this caliber. And while neither you nor the engineers that built these cars likely cared much about fuel economy, it’s nice to know that there are supercars that are somewhat fuel efficient.
