2023 Corvette Z06 Will Be Hit With Gas Guzzler Tax
There aren’t many naturally aspirated supercars left, which means the Z06 is part of an extremely exclusive club. Though fuel consumption figures for these cars are purely academic, it’s interesting to see how the Z06 compares.
Starting with the big V12s, the Ferrari 812 records just 13 mpg on the combined cycle. The Lamborghini Aventador does even worse, at 11 mpg. In the city, the big V12 Lambo doesn’t even hit double digits. The Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan’s V10 both improve slightly with 15 mpg on the combined cycle.
For the big V12s, you’re looking at a $6,400 gas guzzler penalty, while the V10s will cost an additional $4,500. When you look at it this way, the Z06’s fuel consumption is actually quite good. Score one for the American supercar.
