Not like serious buyers are really going to care.
We’re aware that this isn’t the fairest of comparisons; one’s a supercar, the other a muscle car, but both are awesome. The Lamborghini Huracan isn’t a car for those who really care much about emissions. For that matter, it’s not like Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 buyers are tree huggers either. However, Huracan owners may be somewhat surprised to learn about this newfound info. According to data taken by Emissions Analytics and first reported by AutoGuide, the Huracan returns better fuel economy than originally thought, with a real-world testing of 17.7 mpg.
The official rating is 16.6 mpg. That number is good enough to beat the Camaro ZL1, which returns around 16 mpg. Emissions Analytics utilizes something called Portable Emissions Measurement Systems to measure the gases from the tailpipe. It also records how and where the car is being driven. “Big displacement, high-performance cars are designed to be light and efficient, as that relates directly to outright performance," explained the CEO of Emissions Analytics. "These cars are designed to extract the most from every gallon of fuel and it’s not too surprising that they’re capable of delivering reasonably good fuel economy when driven in certain conditions.”
