Guess the gas mileage of Ford’s GT supercar

HINT: IT’S LOW, VERY LOW

The EPA has officially rated the fuel mileage of the 200-plus-mph, EcoBoost-powered Ford GT: Drumroll, please: It’ll get 11 mpg in the city, 18 on the highway, for a combined average of 14 mpg. Apparently that EcoBoost is a lot more boost than eco. That also means the Ford GT will get the mandated gas-guzzler tax, which will fall somewhere between $2,000 and $3,000, depending on how the government calculates it. Also, it’s one tick less city and highway than the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 in the 2005 edition.

But no matter. It’s a Ford GT. The company will sell (has sold) every one, and they’ll all be awesome. And about that tax: $2,500 on top of $400,000? That’s just a drop in the bucket.
