Default World's Sexiest Car = Fiat 500!!

Top Gear magazine conducted a survey of the world's sexiest cars recently. So which car turned out to be the sexiest? was it Porsche or Lamborgini? Or was it Ferrari or Aston Martin? Actually none of these cars made it to the top. The Fiat 500 turned out to be the world's sexiest car!

Quote:
According to Top Gear magazine the 500 has "the allure of the wholesome and uncomplicated". "Everyone, from strapping blokes to fainting flowers of womanhood, looks sexually charged behind its wheel. It works irrespective of age, beauty, wealth and position; even a nun in a 500 seems to telegraph a faint tingle of the procreative urge
Aston Martin DB5 and Maserati Quattroporte came in second and third.

Top 10 List.

NOSTALGIA is a different story altogether....but the sexiest car.....THE PANEL NEEDS TO GET SOME PROFESSIONAL HELP....

i am guessing the panel was made up of a bunch of women...(the CHHOOOOO CHWWWWEEEET / CUUUUTTTTTEE types......)

Errr... why are they comparing the old timers with them present day design concepts now? I mean, on what basis did this survey take place. Comparision between totally different generation cars... not to forget a cartoon car! Sheesh!

Godspeed,

I was shocked to not see the E-Type in that list. Pretty pathetic top 10, if you ask me.

So was I.
For me, the two sexiest cars in the world are the Jaguar E-Type and the old Merc SL Gullwing. Where the hell is the Lambo Miura and where the hell are the Alfas?

No Lambo Miura? No Ferrari Daytona? No E Type? No 300SL?

What were these guys smoking?

The Camaro and the DBS are good choices though. Even the DB5 looked sexy.

Thumbs down

Lets sue the panel just for kicks........

This is sheer GARBAGE.....it was definately based on the ANTI - BIG CAR : BIG P3!^S group....

It is the most common thing said when people see someone who has worked hard to get a big flash car......

I still find this sentiment hard to live with......and this verdict!!!

Hmmm. We still dont know the orientation of the writer - perhaps he's into 'alternative' stuff and therefore thinks that car is 'sexy'. Was this in a newspaper / general mag or a 'special interests' publication?

well gentlemen, beauty is in the eye of the beerholder...(sorry read that somewher on the site...)

being a fiat fanatic and evangelist, i still think calling it the sexiest is going too far...ignoramus'...

they obviously havent heard of the famed figoni falaschi coach builders...now that, to me, is down right erotic! heres some of theur work...

Delahaye 135 MS



Talbot Lagos



Shah of Irans Type 57 bugatti



other "sexy cars..."

hispano suiza



1925 rolls Phantom 1 by johnkeere...originally painted with powdered gold for a king!
