With fuel efficiency considered a national priority, media stories tend to naturally gravitate toward the cars with the best miles-per-gallon ratings. But low-mileage cars are still being built, and, in many cases, consumers are paying a premium for them.
In the two-seater category, Bugatti’s Veyron wins hands down. Often referred to as the “fastest street-legal production car in the world,” the Veyron offers a top speed of 267 miles per hour. The turbocharged, 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder supercar cranks out an amazing 1,001 HP and earns a combined miles per gallon rating of 10 mpg. Its city rating is 8 mpg. On the highway, it gets 15 mpg, according to the US DOT.
