Ten sexy cars to turn men’s heads
Does your car say ‘check me out’ or ‘check my licence’? If the message is rather more ‘park out of sight’ than ‘park up and make out’, we can let you into a secret.
We’ve asked hundreds of men which cars they’re most impressed to see a woman driving (your cue to get ahead in the traffic).
If you’re hoping to attract some male attention this year, we can reveal that the Mercedes 300SL Roadster is the car you need. The classic German model, built between 1957 and 1963 topped our survey as the sexiest car for a woman to drive.
‘The Mercedes Roadster is undeniably a beautiful car, which oozes style and class. Costing at least £200,000 it’s not cheap – but it shows an owner who clearly appreciates the finer things in life,’ says Alex Jenner-Fust, editor of evecars.com.
Although most of the favourites are performance cars, including the Porsche 911, Mitsubishi Evo and Subaru Impreza – the Queen’s favourite vehicle the Land Rover Defender also scored highly in the top ten.
Martin Schlaeppi who races in the Radical Enduro series, voted for the Evo. ‘It’s a car for people who love driving and it takes effort and concentration to drive well,’ he said. Evo drivers know about their cars and that’s why it’s sexy to see a woman behind the wheel.’
Do you agree? We asked a number of women from the motoring industry which cars they felt most fabulous driving. Two-seater convertibles scored strongly, from the luxurious Jaguar XKR to the stripped-out Caterham, as did performance cars like the Porsche 911 and Mitsubishi Evo.
Tell us what you think: do you care what men think about your car? Is driving a ‘male’ car is a way of saying ‘we’re just as good as men, and look – we can even drive!’?
