Melbourne, Feb 25 : They may cost a bomb, but a fast and expensive car like a Ferrari or a Porsche isn't what makes men more desirable to women.
The finding is based on a survey conducted on 'sexiest cars and their male drivers' by a women's motoring website, which revealed that Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari drivers were considered pretentious or sleazy while Mini drivers were "gay''.
Utes, a light motor vehicle with an open-top rear cargo area and VWs were popular among the women, while Ford and Holdens were the ones to score poorly.
Toyota, Volvo and Rolls Royce drivers were considered already married and off the market.
"We hate to break the news to men, but that very expensive Ferrari isn't going to buy them street cred with the ladies, and neither will a Porsche or Lamborghini,'' Daily telegraph quoted Juliet Potter, website's founder, as saying.
"We had over 5000 respondents to the survey. So it seems that women are really into their cars - just in a different way to men," she added.
