With fuel prices hitting a record low, buyers might turn once again towards high-performance, gas guzzling BMWs. After years of looking at MPG at the main buying point while crossing off V8-powered models, it’s finally time to expand our car search.
Fuel prices have dictated sales for years now in the car industry, with the last few years seeing a move towards hybrids, electric vehicles and highly efficient diesels. The future is definitely green but that shouldn’t stop us from owning a V8 if possible.
