Supercars Race for Fuel Economy

We have talked about the idea of replacing the traditional car race for the best time by races for the best fuel economy. Well, what would happen if you tanked up an Aston Martin DBS, an Audi R8, a Lamborghini Murcielago, a Ferrari 599GTB, and a Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR will a gallon of gas each and ran them until they used the last drop? Who would go the farthest?

This video shows exactly that match up. The winner was the Audi R8, but it used a horrible 20 gallons per hundred miles (GPHM)! These cars may be super cars from the point of view of performance, but they sure do not save on gas!
