While a lot of power needs to be generated to make supercars like Aston Martins, Ferraris and Bugattis go as fast as they do, these manufacturers are still attempting to make their beastly vehicles emit less pollution. However, as most drivers of these cars primarily use them for leisure (hence less use in general), does their carbon footprint matter as much?

 

As America scrambles to pay for ever-more expensive gas and abandons buying new SUV guzzlers in favor of smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles, automakers are scrambling even harder to produce the high-mileage, lower-emissions vehicles they think people will buy. But how are the makers of supercars, whose engines environmental experts say emit about three times the amount of carbon dioxide as everyday passenger vehicles, responding?

 

“Firstly, to put things into context, we sell just over 7,000 cars per year, with around 30% of that heading to the US,” Matthew Clarke, a spokesman for Aston Martin said in an email to the Daily News from the company’s headquarter in Warwick, England. Read More

Yea that do they need to be fuel efficient. Everyone driving them seems to not give a rip about the energy crisis. The Tesla Model S is out, it is a super car and gets over 80MPGe. Production is ramping up, it will be a few years before it is mass produced. Rich people can afford it and would be happy to have it. So why will people still buy the gas guzzlers when good fast electric cars are out? Small reproductive organs? I'm not sure.
