No one buys a sports car because it's fuel efficient and good for the household budget. So if you're going to splurge, you might as well flaunt it. Even though there aren't any truly efficient gasoline engine sports cars, there are certainly some that are better on gas than others. And then, there are some that are much, much worse. The top 10 gas guzzling sports cars might make the average consumer's jaw drop for any number of reasons: the horrific MPG ratings, the estimated fuel cost per year, the sticker price, and the mere thought of simply being that self-indulgent are some pretty compelling arguments against these low gas mileage sports cars. But for those who have indulged in such a manner before, and who will almost certainly do it again, they know something that others can only fantasize about. These low MPG sports cars got that way by valuing power above all else, and that, in most cases, makes for a wickedly fun drive. Check out the list of the most gas guzzling sports cars to get a look at the lifestyle without the guilt… at least, until you actually start shopping. 

When you're shopping for low fuel economy sports cars, you've already resigned yourself to being seen in a rolling billboard for irresponsibility and selfishness, because cars that are deliberately and proudly inefficient have a stigma. If shopping for one of these gas guzzler sports cars is an actual possibility or likelihood, you've already decided you don't care about that. So, you're probably also already aware that such choices come at a price. A steep price. Not only will you pay top dollar for your powerful sports car, you'll be shelling out often to keep its gas guzzling engine satisfied. These lowest gas mileage sports cars are among the thirstiest on the market in any category. But for some buyers, it's worth it to step on the gas and hear the roar.
