Click above for a high-res gallery of the top ten anti-fuel efficient cars

With the dramatic fluctuation of fuel prices in recent years, auto shows and the automakers that frequent them have focused more on green cars and increased efficiency. Gone are the days of supercar concepts like the Cadillac Cien and Chrysler ME412, as they're replaced by fuel sipping hybrids and range-extended electric vehicles. Still, a few manufacturers dare to bring gas-guzzlers to the joy of those who still enjoy tire-shredding horsepower. Click on the link below to see the top ten vehicles of the 2009 Detroit Auto Show that relentlessly celebrate smokey burnouts and completely unnecessary top speeds.

      its pretty funny how GTM is on this list, being based on the ls7 and only weighing 2500lb many owners are getting over 30mpg
        • 6 Years Ago
        people who own a GTM are actually recording their MPG's? lol

      Call me an ignorant young self-centered egostistical hotshot, but I could care less if my sports cars run on something that is bad for the environment. It is a luxury which is supposed to be for fun. Hybrid yachts, jets, Skidoos? Not happening.

      Have you heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?

      Or the Holocene Extinction Event?

      Or the problem in Gaza?

      You wanna save the world Mr. CEO? Put your money where your mouth is.

        If you could care less, that means you care.

        If you could not care less, it means you care so little you could not possible care even less.

        You're dumb.

      No EVs for me, clean diesel is as green as I get.

      Can you guys please just put a list in your posts so I don't have to wait for each picture to load up? Make each entry in the list a link so I can see the car, but don't force me to click through pictures.

      That should definitely be "...could not care less." To write stuff for a living and make those kinds of elementary mistakes, it makes your work seem careless.

        I read all of that. My brain is bleeding out of my ear and puddling into the word "syntax" on my desk.

        gforce: that article doesn't convince anyone.

        '[by saying "I could care less",] the speaker is really saying, “As if there was something in the world that I care less about”.'

        No, the speaker is either saying, "There is something in the world that I care less about", or "I care about this thing". The "obviously sarcastic" intent the author claims is a cop out. A lame excuse.

        Hey, when you're wrong, it's okay to admit it. We won't laugh. But trying to justify obviously incorrect usage is willful ignorance, plain and simple.

        Well, it's a matter of some debate, but in written form I guess it's better to include the "not"
        http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-ico1.htm

        Unless, of course the intent really is that these cars try at least a little to save gas. Nice cars, anyway.

      That Mustang is hot! I usually don't go for such flashy/gaudy colors but it seems to work well in this particular case. Man I can't even imagine how many heads that would turn. What a statement....

      Those wheels aren't bad either...

      Didn't the press release for the GT500 say it gets 2mpg better on the freeway (22mpg now I think)? No Prius, but looks like it does care about MPG ;)
      • 6 Years Ago
      The ZR1 gets 20 MPG. It's a Prius compared to the others.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah right!Lamborghini is the best auto company that the world has ever seen. The Lp560-4 is just about the best looking think i have ever seen. i can find 0 flaws in it. Sure there are a lot that are probably a lot that gather dust, but there are also a lot of the roads.
        • 6 Years Ago
        true dat
        • 6 Years Ago
        All lamborghinis just gather garage-dust, so they probably have the smallest carbon footprint. ;)
