dino2.jpgForbes has just released another in their never-ending series of ten-best lists– a feature which stretches credulity, interest and patience. To wit: the latest list trumpets the ten best cars for single people.  Being a perennially unattached person, my index finger only managed to hover over delete. Oh man… "Best Car For Eco-minded Singles: Toyota Prius Sedan." No, really. But one item intrigued me: "Best Car For Boosting Your Sex Life"  Aside from looking like an uncircumcised penis, I can't think of anything even remotely sexy about BMW's M6 Coupe.  But there are some drop-dead gorgeous cars on both the new and used market.  What car(s) do you find sexy?  More to the point (so to speak), can a car get you laid?  And if it can, is it really a good idea to share your precious bodily fluids with a sexual partner who's turned-on by your taste in whips?

    Uh … in that last question, what kind of whips are you talking about??

    Jaguar E-Type, the archetypical phallus on wheels, and supposedly a crumpet attractor. Or a Figoni et Falaschi Talboy-Lago coupe for sensuousness.

    Forbes’ lists are awful. This one was not as vapid and hateable as usual.

    Although the 6-series is hideous in some respects (banglebutt), I actually agree that it would instantly improve anyone’s sex life. There is something about overindulgent BMWs that drives people crazy. The 6, with its perfect blend of money, ‘class’, and frivolity is quite the aphrodisiac.

    Whereas a Jag is seen as stuffy, a Vette as corny, or a G35, say, as slightly juvenile, big Bimmers have a dignified arrogance that women lust after.

    Those Forbes’ lists are waste of pixels…

    When I was single, it really didn’t matter much (to the young women I was dating back then) what I drove, so long as it wasn’t a garbage truck.

    My buddy just bought a new Lotus. He is getting into some pretty bizarre positions right now – so there’s the proof on that question.

    Sexy cars?

    The late Henry N. Manney III of R&T fame did write an article once called the Ultimate Crumpet Collector, which was about the ability of E-Types to attract the ladies.

    I had an E-Type (1970 coupe’) and it worked well. I also had a Rabbit Cabrio. Very un-masculine, but chicks thought it was “really cute” and would jump right – um – in!

    The best one I had, though, was a midnight blue 1975 Volvo 145. Purpose built: fold up the seat squab and down the seat back and you had space to get to work. And the little transmission cut-out on the base of the squab was a perfect headrest.

  • avatar

    The answer to your second question is a qualified “no.” If the car said a lot about my interests, say if I were a muscle car guy and had a ‘cuda and a girl got really geeked out about it from that point of view, yeah I’d probably say that qualified as a “shared interest” and therefore a reasonable reason to get it on. If a girl lusted after my car just because it was/used to be expensive, I’d have to pass.
    That said, as far as sexy cars that you can currently buy new go, I have to say that the merc CL and CLS are easily my favorites. If they turn out to be reliable I fully plan on buy a used one at some point in the future.

  • avatar

    Probably a better example than the above is if I had an RX-8 and a girl started asking me about the rotary engine. That would get my attention.

  • avatar

    There is no one car to get the job done. Sunset party girls might be drawn to that big bimmer, but others will be repulsed. Rocker girls get hot over vintage detroit steel. Indy girls might be the hardest/easiest to deal with. They can get drawn to such oddities as AMC Ramblers and Volvo P1800s. In many cases the more odd the better.

    Of course if you’ve got no game no set of wheels is going to help.

  • avatar

    But of course: “The finest Crumpet Collector known to man” the Jaguar E-type!

    Next to that any BMW (except a wheezing 507 of course) is just an ugly brick, or a poseur.

    The only time a car might have had anything to do with my [not] getting laid was when I was driving a Lamborghini Diablo (press car, of course) on a magazine assignment in Arkansas. I stopped late one afternoon at a very fancy lake resort–can’t remember the name of it–for an overnight.

    At dinner, a slightly drunk but fabulous-looking middle-aged blonde teetered over to my table, where I was, of course, eating alone, and said, “Hi, honey. Wasn’t it you I saw out in the parking lot with that DeLorean?”

    Couldn’t have gotten it up if I’d wanted to, after that.

    Come on: Any real sports car is going to get you laid, if that’s what you’re looking for.
    A single guy driving a flash Porsche is just saying, “I’m looking for blonds.”
    Certain Bimmers may do the trick, but I think stock 3-series and 5-series say accountant too much.

    In any case, if you drive a Ferrari and can’t get laid, you’re doing something really wrong.

    As far as “Sexy” goes, the sexiest car I have ever laid eyes on is the late M Coupe. Checked one out for 20 minutes in a parking garage one night. Total lust on my part.

    To answer the latter part of my question — whatever works.

    Easy answer: a ferrari convertible (think 355 or medena) in ferrari red. Every bimbo on the planet knows this car. Hollywood has helped you out with your rap by romantisizing this car more than any other for sex appeal.

    2nd choice: a Rolls convertible. Not nearly as sexy, but a car no self respecting gold digger wouldn’t recognize. The automotive equivalent of the fat yacht docked at the pier watching for the “catch” to show up.

    The Volvo 740 worked just fine for me. And my friend who drove a 240 at the time joked, “Square Cars for Square Guys”; I guess women can see straight through that.

    Of course, my next (and current) car was the polar opposite – a Miata, and I got married 3 years afterwards, not that they are associated in any way.

    I think there’s a difference between a sexy car and a car that helps you have sex. A sexy car is attractive in itself, while a car that helps you have sex makes you [appear] more attractive.

    To me, a sexy car is is beautiful and powerful and comfortable. It has a confidence about it; it knows who and what it is, and why it exists, and isn’t embarrassed about itself.

    The Masarati Quattroporte is sexy. The Aston DB9 is sexy. The Porsche Cayman is sexy.

    Cars like big pickup trucks and SUVs aren’t sexy. Sports cars are sexy if they exist for sport, like the Cayman, but they lose some of their appeal if they exist mostly as statements about their owners, like many Ferraris and Lamborghinis. This isn’t a question of expense, either; I thought the old Miatas were sexy, but I’ve never cared for a Mustang.

    This discussion brings to mind the great line: “beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we can all agree on ugly” :)

  • avatar

    To the best of my knowledge, my ’93 Saturn has neither helped nor hindered my abilities to woo the opposite sex.

    My late, lamented ’89 GTI, however, went over quite well with the ladies.

    In other words, nobody’s ever gotten involved with me for the money.

  • avatar
    Lesley

    Believe it or not, the most attention I got from the opposite sex was while driving a bright yellow, SRT-10 pickup truck. Hugely roomy cab and the shifter was on the wheel – and that’s all I have to say about that.

  • avatar

    More to the point (so to speak), can a car get you laid? And if it can, is it really a good idea to share your precious bodily fluids with a sexual partner willing to do the horizontal mambo simply because of your taste in whips?

    Only if she’s a fellow car nut. Or perhaps if I had an xB and she thought that was cool. If she’s just looking for status, the guy w/ the M6 can have her.

    One of my favorite ex girlfriend’s actually liked the Ford Expire I had to rent while my car was in the shop for a week. And she was a very high class woman, a concert pianist, the daughter of a nationally well-known MD. She thought it looked cute. But neither she, nor anyone else I’ve ever been close to would have bedded a guy based on his wheels.

    I’ve had a few guys (mostly racecar drivers) tell me that the bigger the lift on your truck, the more the ladies want a ride.

    I will never know.

    I can say with certainty however, that bright blue WRX wagons with red brake calipers do nothing.

  • avatar

    actually, one of my friends, who had a 66 barracuda in the early ’90s, advised me to get a similar car. He was very happily married, but said that women were constantly trying to pick him up when he was in that car.

  • avatar

    The new Pininfarina custom that broke on the web a few days ago is downright sexy…but the all time champ for me is the McLaren F1.

    “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife. For my particular point of view, get an ugly girl to marry you…”

    Ole, you are soooo wrong – trucks can indeed be sexy. I have a nasty, stealth- bomber black dodge with a completely rebuilt engine and the raspy bark of a muscle car. And that spastic lope…. whew!
    I picked up a good friend to go out one night who later remarked “OK, I get it now – this thing is a babe magnet” It’s kinda primitive, but I love driving it after a week spent with a perfect, soul-less luxo sedan. Which does of course attract its own legion, but certainly not the one I aspire to get horizontal with. Yawn.

    BTW David… I’m a girl. :)))

    No car I have ever driven garnered any where near the attention my 2002 black Jaguar X Type with black, grey, green, silver, another shade of grey, another shade of grey, and fake looking wood interior did. I can honestly say it improved my sex life drastically. I got rid of it 11 months later nonetheless.

  • avatar
    RoubaixOne

    Surprised I am that no one has mentioned the Bugatti Veyron. Luscious curves, more power that you would probably ever need to impress someone of the opposite gender, and a color scheme that says, “I understand other artistic values.”

  • avatar

    The problem with cars like the Veyron (or Murcielago, F430, etc) is that since they are so over-the-top, they carry the baggage of ‘compensation’. Not that you wouldn’t get attention, but you’re just as likely to get sneers.

    On top of which, for anyone that might actually be able to afford a Veyron, getting trim is not likely a problem.

  • avatar
    Jonny Lieberman

    Bonefizz: Indeed.

    Though, I remember a lady friend of mine asked me if I liked my WRX. Yes, I love it I said. She was thinking about buying one. I let her drive mine around. She liked it. Then I took her to one of my favorite bits of raod. 30 seconds later she was crying and begging me to stop.

    She bought a Toyota truck.

    I definitely think that a car can improve an individual’s chance of getting some ass.

    My weapon of choice would be (and this is probably cheating since it hasn’t been released yet) the new Alfa Competizione(?) 8C. Probably the sexiest car I’ve ever seen (in pictures).

  • avatar
    Jonny Lieberman

    Ole’s call on the Quattroporte is dead on.

    That is a gorgeous vehicle. It doesn’t work in pictures. You have to see it in the flesh.

    Drool-worthy. Especially in burgandy or black…. even that light blue looks good.

    The guy who owns the company I work for bought himself a Quattroporte. Blue, with the baseball-glove leather. Hell, it made *me* wet. I asked him if he gets much attention from the ladies of the greater Nashville area and he just gave me an “aw-shucks” smile. So yeah, I think the Maserati will get you what you’re looking for.

    What was the line from that movie Crazy People? ‘Jaguar – for men who want handjobs from women they barely know.”

  • avatar

    I don’t think that there is any car, in and of itself, that is likely to help you get laid…

    On the other hand, the world is FULL of cars that are likely to KEEP you from getting laid…

    Once you’ve gotten a car that doesn’t invoke the “Oh HELL no!” reaction, it’s all up to your suave and debonair self…

  • avatar

    Another Nashvillian! Hello, Dr. X!

    I have to add that the car that has gotten me the most attention is my ’72 Porsche 914 in GT trim and Carrera silver. With the GT flares the car looks muscular, but is still small enough and “cute” enough not to be intimidating. It also is unusual enough that it becomes a conversation starter. A lot of “what kind of car is THAT? It’s so cool!” Sadly I had to park her this year as she’s in need of quite a bit of TLC. Just as well, I’ve got a girlfriend these days. Targa tops and convertibles are inviting and they make striking up a conversation a bit less awkward. Day to day I drive an old Nissan truck, and I still get plenty of attention, but it’s a different audience. In the Porsche it’s important to be well dressed and match the car. In the truck you want to be the Diet Coke guy from the commercials — worn jeans, white sleevless t-shirt, bandana holding back your hair — “rough”. It’s a very specific kind of girl who is interested in the hugely lifted truck. Most girls would not like to have to climb up a ladder to get in, and unless you’re 7 feet tall you look like an ass climbing in too. A slightly beaten work truck that’s comfortable to get in and out of is the perfect day to day car and it identifies you as a man, not just some player.

  • avatar

    I think it’s pretty telling that nobody in this thread has brought up any sort of rice rocket. The only girls you’re going to attract that way are jailbait for sure. I’ve never seen a grown woman show any interest at all in an import coupe. I think unless it’s European, any new car is going to get a lukewarm reaction at best. If you want to go American, you pretty much have to go with an older model. It doesn’t even have to be muscle, these days a Ford Maverick will get you places a Mustang used to.

    Jonny:

    I get the evil eye from my wife when I throw my WRX around when she’s in the passenger seat. She asks me, “do you have to drive that way?” Yes, yes I do.

    Perhaps your lady friend needed the Toyota Truck to carry all of her… baggage?

    Hate to burst everyone’s bubble but hot cars do not neccasarily attract good looking women. I was at the shore in NJ and right in front of me was a brand new Lamborghini Murcielago Spyder and down the block was a Ferrari 550 Maranello. In a nutshell the women could care less. This is a beach in NJ that is known for having incredibly good looking women. Guess what, they looked and kept walking. In a nutshell SO WHAT.

    I have seen this same reaction with Porsches, 60’s muscle cars, Mercedes, BMW’s, etc… I dont know if they are jaded in NJ but they could care less.

    A hot car is not going to cut it.

  • avatar

    BTW David??? I???m a girl. :)))

    I’m so glad there’s at least one of your gender on this site (there must be more…). But then you have to like… trucks. (And we’re not talking Peterbilts, which I like, aesthetically.) Switching JL’s question around, whenever I see a woman driving a Porsche, or a Nissan Z, a Miata, or even a 3 series–something that says this is a woman who loves to drive–I take a good look at her. Trucks, which say to me that image is more important than fun driving, are a turnoff. Forgive me, Lesley.

    1973 Opel Manta

    I don’t know what it was about that car, but I had one in the late 80’s, early 1990’s when I was in High school. I had wayyy to much fun with the opposite sex in that car.

  • avatar

    At the risk of sounding cynical, I would think that the more expensive the car, the more likely to get attention from women.

    As for the sexiest car ever, let me tell you. I used to live just north of Auburn, IN where they made Auburns, Cords, and Duesenbergs. Now a Model J Duesy has no peer. Check one out here:

    http://www.hubcapcafe.com/ocs/pages01/dues2902.htm

    A good buddy of mine was the go-to guy there for total restorations of them ($1 Million Plus a pop) and we would occasionally take one that he was restoring for a spin. We would look down our noses at Jags and Mercs, etc., if only for 15 minutes. Alas, then it was back to reality.

    The car that I had that was the most conducive to sex was, believe it or not, a 1965 Rambler. Say what you will, but the front seats reclined completely, making the equivalent of a full sized bed.

    So, I guess the moral of the story is, if you need help to get attention, get something drop dead gorgeous and expensive. If you are able to get attention on your own, and (ahem) just want to get laid, go for the Rambler.

    Sorry, but Ferrari as babe magnet seems to be a myth. (There is almost always an active thread about this on FerrariChat.com). In fact, it’s mostly guys who seem to appreciate the car. Mine is a coupe and it isn’t resale red, but a lot of the guys with the flashier cars say it doesn’t help a bit. Still a blast to drive, tho.

  • avatar

    The car doesn’t make the man, but I have always thought of the ’67 Corvette as a sexy machine. As a product of the big-80s and grungy-90s, my preference has usually been to look backward, rather than forward. The new Astons, especially the DB9, are candy for the eyes. I’m also very partial to the 575 Maranello, though the above post would seem to dispute its babe magnet potential. I drive a done up Subaru, so I am certainly not an expert in what cars attract women.

    You want sexy? I give you sexy!!!

    An 1969 Alfa Romeo Spyder, round tail (The one before the plastic bumpers!!) Preferrably in red with the tan interior.

    There is not A ONE woman that can resist that car. I used to drive mine, wearing my navy Armani sports coat over a custom tailored white shirt and designer jeans, boat shoes (no socks, of course) and matching belt.

    Although reasonably good looking, THE ATTENTION GETTER was clearly the Spyder. With a practiced non-chalant jump in over the door, (90cm off the ground, helps!) AFTER you helped the lovely in the passenger side seat and a Colgate grin from ear to ear, I’d ease the Alfa into college town traffic for another home run!!

    That car is non-treathning, just the right size, so sexy and talk about a babe magnet!!! Bellisima!! Yes, I have parked it between Porsches and Bentley’s etc. Tell you what, though: cute gets the girl!! Used, it cost only a fraction of the other cars, but showroom quality maintenance inside and out (a must!) makes it look like a million bucks!!

    When we had our first rug rat and the car park had to include an SUV/Minivan, my wife made me give it up one car. She twisted the stilleto in my heart and insisted it’d be the Alfa. The day the buyer came to pick it up, I believe I aged by 10 years!! My wife though was as happy as when her arch rival finally got married!! Ciao bella till this day you’re missed!!

    Dead on about the Alfa. My dad owned one, which I usually drove off to school each day in the spring. He sold it and I suddenly had an open social calendar. Thank God he came to his senses and bought it back six months later so I could take it off to college (along with all the tools and the Shankle Engineering parts book).

It looks like the car everybody’s grandmother drove in the 80s.

    Almost perfect choice. When the question was raised the first car I though of was the 1966 Alfa Duetto (in red of course) as driven the wrong way over the Bay Bridge (the lower deck heads east) by Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate.

    The ultimate sexy car. The lines are a little cleaner than the later models.

    I drive a Monza red Lancia Integrale Evo-II, which is a bit of a sissy car. My engine doesn’t even rev up any further then 2500 rpm (!) so needless to say: “it’s raining, it’s pouring, my lovelife is boring”.

    Maybe i have a chance for a quick snog with Degsy, that’s all i’m hoping for.

    Take care! (and if you want women crawling all over you, never buy a Grale)

    Not that my car is a rice rocket…but I do notice that I’m getting more attention in an Acura than my previous Trailblazer.

    18-24 year old girls (aka college girls, aka the prime demographic for random sexual encounters) dig any “normal” car that they believe to be expensive. “Normal” = sedan (Exotics and sports cars single you out as being into cars as opposed to into her, or into yourself as opposed to into her. Neither bodes well for getting her in bed.), and “expensive” = luxury brand (which means a 32k Subaru doesn’t count for expensive, but a 28k Audi does.) Anything BMW will fit the bill. If you are just in it for the girls, don’t even bother with the M3, it’s no different than a 325i to them.

    I’m sure we all know that no car will get you laid if you can’t get it without the car, but I guess if you’ve already got the game, a nice car is just one more weapon in your arsenal.

    PS: A cool girl would probably be into something a little quirkier or fun, or most likely not care about the car at all. But the title of the article wasn’t “Cars That Get You a Girlfriend” So, it doesn’t so much matter if she is cool, so long as she is hot.

    PPS: Has anybody mentioned the uncanny panty-dropping power of a motorcycle? Probably cheaper and more effective than anything else mentioned thus far for the job at hand.

    The dog ate my reply, either that or my wife’s not-so-friendly thoughts about my little babe-magnet.

    In my reply, I was referring to how occasionally the car would missfire because the previous owner outfitted it with double Weber downdrafts, that were a b!tch to adjust just right, leading to the occasional yelp or “accidents” with the lovelies in the passenger side seat!! Priceless!
    It did not detract from the Alfa’s pleasing qualities but hinted to the hidden beast within….

    Howard,

    Almost forgot abt that movie!! You are right! I have to rent is if its out on DVD!! Thanks! The ’66 lines up to the ’69 were a fresh italian style exercise if you compare them to their contemporary MG’s, Triumph’s etc.

    I beg to differ, but the Lancia Delta, espespially the HF or Monte Carlo versions were in it’s times what rally winning Subaru WRX and Mitsu EVO’s are today.

    My Ducatis have always had much better pull than anything else I’ve owned at the same time (usually a pickup or van to pick it up when it gets Italian). My current Duc is a bright yellow 748s, a shape so beautiful they’ve got one at the SF MoMA.

    The main problem is that the pillion position is just for showing off – if I’ve got her on there for more than 20 minutes or in stop and go traffic, it gets uncomfortable in a hurry. And I won’t have even one beer when I’m riding it, since a 1:4 power/weight ratio is enough to make one little mistake ruin your whole day, and that makes it tough to ride it to bars. But I do alright.

    When I switched from an 01 GTI to an 00 M Coupe, suddenly girls started chatting me up. even my female friends started to look at me in a new a light. a pity I was no longer single then; I wish I’d realized the clown shoe power much sooner.

    That M Coupe is just… I really, really want one.

    Sexually.

    Hmmm, trying desperately not to picture that…

    Well, back in my college years I was driving a ’94 Crown Victoria LX. As for “makin with the love”, this car was set. A nice large soft-on-the-body fabric backseat was put to plenty of use. The draw was my under-the-passenger seat custom subwoofer install. Once a girl heard about it, the first question was “Why would you do that?”…I would then ask them if they would like a demonstration. 10 minutes later they would be rev’d up and itching to take it up a notch. I do miss that ride…

    Now, my ’06 Mustang GT attracts plenty of attention. Not so much from the random blond, but from gear-chicks…which are plenty fine for my taste.

    You are all setting your sights too low. Many of your suggestions are indeed strong when considering merely a single target. For those of us with enough love to go round, we need to be able to draw and accommodate a flock of birds. The Maybach is the clear choice as a multi-tail magnet.

    Or, of course, the A-team themed Winnebago.

    “Of course, my next (and current) car was the polar opposite – a Miata, and I got married 3 years afterwards, not that they are associated in any way” – yeah, but marrying another guy is only legal in 1 state- so that doesnt count-

    Love the thought behind the subwoofer under the passenger seat.
    Good one on you.

    In my own personal experience ( extensive in both cars, & cars that
    attract women ) The two best on my list would have to include
    1. A red 1957 Chevy convertable
    2. A silver porche speedster ( old model )

    ronbo456…Wow ferrari and gettin pussy is a myth…well I guess since I’m with the have nots I find that hard to believe. Though their was a show on TV where a guy was loaned a Rolls Royce Phantom because he claimed he couldn’t get chicks in his car. They told him to get five numbers in 30minutes and he couldn’t do it. Sheesh…Anyways a car is nothing more then an addition to get pussy faster if you ask me. Some women may play conservative but they will have their ass in the air instantly if you drive, say a bentley coupe. I have had many a one night stands in my cars over the years but I cant imagine how much ass I missed out on not having an exotic car for the more conservative top of the line women. Like someone said in this post were talking about a different breed of women when you drive luxurious autos.

    P.S. Hutton your right a motorcycle will get you some easy ass too.
    P.P.S. Vallux06 your story was compelling very heart felt. I wish you can get that 69 spyder again. I am rooting for you

    Vallux06,
    The round tail Spider (no, ‘y’ for Alfas) is the Duetto.
    I don’t know how great it would have looked after you cut holes in the bonnet for your ahem, “Weber downdrafts”.
