Supercars and fuel efficiency and not things that normally go hand in hand. Normally people who buy supercars won’t actually care about the fuel efficiency. Sportscars and supercars are all about performance and as most of them have large and powerful engines which reduces the overall efficiency. Most of these cars have a fuel efficiency under 10 kmpl. Here we have a video were a Ferrari 812 Superfast Supercar owner shares his experience about the fuel efficiency of the car in a road trip.
The video has been uploaded by MKG VLOGS on their YouTube channel. The owner who is also making the vlog is driving the Ferrari 812 Superfast and his friend is in a BMW M2. The group is travelling to Bangalore from Hyderabad. The group started moving and he mentioned that they’ll be maintaining a speed of 100 kmph on the highway.
The BMW M2 was being driven behind the Ferrari and before starting the trip both cars had full tank fuel in them. 180 kms after starting the drive BMW M2 driver had to stop for refueling. The Ferrari 812 was still had decent amount of fuel in it and he did not refuel. After refueling, the group continued the trip and after covering 265 kms the Ferrari still had fuel left in it.
The group stopped for refreshments and then continued the trip. After the break, the Ferrari and BMW both got some empty stretch of roads where they actually drove the cars at good speeds. After the fast driving session on the road, BMW M2 needed fuel again. It again took in almost 41 litres of fuel again to complete the trip. This was the third full tank that M2 had got since the trip had started. Surprisingly Ferrari did not stop for fuel on the way to Bangalore.
The owner was surprised how less fuel efficient BMW M2 actually is. He mentions that the M2 had to stop thrice for fuel in their 553 kms road trip from Hyderabad to Bangalore. The main reason why BMW had to stop and Ferrari did not is because of the fuel tank capacity. BMW has a 45 litres of fuel tank and Ferrari gets a massive 92 litres. Ferrari 812 Superfast is a GT and is meant for long distance touring without stopping for fuel ruining the overall experience. Even then the BMW was comparatively less efficient. Vlogger said at the end of the video that the BMW was returning them around 5 to 5.5 kmpl while the Ferrari was returning 7-8 kmpl which is great for a car of this size.
The BMW M2 is powered by a 3.0 litre twin turbo inline 6 cylinder engine that generates 410 Bhp and 550 Nm of peak torque. The engine sends power to the rear wheels and is mated to an automatic transmission. The Ferrari 812 Superfast on the other hand gets a bigger 6.5 litre V12 petrol engine. The sporty exhaust note of the car could be heard in the video at several parts. The car generates 788 bhp and 718 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels.
