Murcielago Is the Least Green Car of the Year 2010

The Environmental Transport Association (ETA) revealed today the Green Car Awards winners (or losers), after it has examined over 5,000 car models and compared the results. According to the ETA, the Lamborghini Murcielago emits a CO2 amount equivalent to ‘a football pitch-sized forest of trees’, which brought it the Least Green Car of the Year 2010 title.

"With emissions five times worse than the greenest car, the Lamborghini is the bull in an environmental china shop. Thankfully, there are very few on the roads and there is an increasing choice of environmentally-sound cars," Andrew Davis, director at the ETA, said in a release.

"With the price of petrol at record levels and greater understanding about the threat to the environment there has never been a more important time to make fuel efficiency a deciding factor when choosing a car," added Davis,
