I came across these interesting articles in the Mid Day today, so I thought of sharing it with those of you who may have not read it yet….

Berlin: “BMW drivers have more sex than owners of any other cars and are much more active than Porsche drivers, a new German car magazine has found.

The German magazine Men’s Car found in a survey of 2,253 motorists aged 20 to 50 published in its inaugural May issue that male BMW drivers say they have sex on average 2.2 times each week while Porsche drivers have sex 1.4 times per week.

Following BMW drivers were Audi (2.1), Volkswagen (1.9), Ford (1.7), and Mercedes (1.6). Drivers of foreign car makes were also behind BMW with Italian cars (2.0), French (1.9), Japanese (1.8), Swedish (1.6), and Korean Cars (1.5) trailing after.

Among women, French car drivers were top with 2.1 times per week followed by Audi (2.0), Italian (2.0), and BMW (1.9) with Porsche again at the bottom of the scale at 1.2 times per week.

“What is the sex quotient of the male driver in India?

The Maruti 800 is known as ‘a ladies car’ so there is no machismo bragging about how many times they are supposed to have sex, hence no figures are available.

The Esteem driver might say he gets it often enough, but once again there is no survey commissioned, so one wonders whether that is simply good for his self-esteem.

The Maruti Zen driver is unable to give any figures as Zen masters are into more profound things other than sex.

Santro Zip Drive drivers are lucky men. A name like Zip Drive says it all, the zip and the drive, this car does not need a dash board but a censor board.

The Baleno boys of India say things are simply great, they come close to the BMW figures.

Though the good old, sturdy Ambassador is not a fashionable car to drive, it has always had sex appeal. Just check all those sirens on top.

Finally, India’s Ferrari owners (Sachin Tendulkar included) say the figures are so hot, they just can not handle the demand for sex. Ferrari owners all over the world confirm this view. No wonder, one particular man sold his Ferrari and became a monk and even wrote a book about it called: The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.”

You bet!! Guve up a Ferrari (Or were there other reasons?). ask him to read this midday article to see what a Ferrari could do for him

Butttttttttttt did anyone notice in the midday about these ignorant journalists? They claim that BMW men are most active, yet the car they called a BMW was?

A Red Skoda Octavia!!!

These journalists ought to come by team-BHP once in every while

Aha, it does make sense to me. What else can the poor driver do when the car is being controlled by the onboard computer.

LOL!!!!!

True about stats unknown because the maruti 800 in the picture attached was surely a "ladies" car since it had seen enough number of gals/ladies in the back seat

Jokes aside, it was a close friend's car and it surely has provided fond memories to last a lifetime. The rides were all really memorable - including the time we were going on two wheels (with six of us inside) for quite a distance on a curve on Boat Club Road in Chennai (very soon after that incident, the tires were changed from standard factory to radials).

It has been twenty odd years, but that car still holds a special place for everyone amongst my group of close knit friends
