I never imagined a sports car would be more fuel efficient than my own sedan. Here’s some news about the Nissan Skyline getting about 16 Km to the Liter.
The so-called ‘eco-driving challenge was conducted by a team of product development experts on the roads from Tochigi to Kanagawa. The 2.5-liter Skyline model driven was powered by the VQ25HR V6 engine, capable of generating 225 horsepower and 26.8kgm of torque.
The team succeeded in covering a impressive distance of 1,024.4 kilometers with an average fuel consumption rate of 16.3km-per-liter. The main objective of the eco-driving challenge was to promote greater awareness of Nissan’s advanced fuel-economy technology as well as demonstrate the efficiency of the new VQ engine under real-world driving conditions. – Huliq
I’m not sure if this test wasn’t exactly done under controlled conditions, but the news item said the team drove through real world conditions, which included a one-hour traffic jam and road construction works, and the like.
