Default Women and the engine of a supercar

It's official folks. A study has proven that women are very turned on by the engine note of an exotic car. Don't believe me? Read article linked below.

A lot of tbhpians are married sir,

I am too. my wife is hankering for an equivalent amount of diamond jewellery as against an apparatus which makes that sound you are reffering to.

OT - I wont spend on either.
warm regards

Uhm i've heared of this study already,
it might have more to do with the vibrations than the actual sound.

1 Rotary powered car please

You sir, are a genious

PS: was it the Gran Tourismo that topped the chart? Not surprising though as i personally get quite excited when i see it, lol and again, it might have something to do with its looks as opposed to the sound.

Great! Now that I already have someone in my life, they come up with this study!

So now I can tell everyone that this research is my excuse for not buying the Murcielago/or any other supercar for that matter as I cannot afford to attract all the "unwanted" attention from the opposite sex!

Cheap fix : Download an exhaust note and play it on your hi-fi. If that doesn't work, atleast you didn't have to sell your house to find out. Most Indian women only hear about FE anyways.

Get a sub in a ported box tuned to 33hz. If you wanna really make sure go out to about 150db, it hits the 'spot'

Until the time we can afford the exotics I think we can make do with our god given gifts

Not boasting but Iv never had to resort to these sort of measures... and hopefully I never will ;-)

The 33hz thing is a rumor in the predominantly male dominated world of ice, but there's scores of people who have tried and claim it works. Some say 28hz...

Different strokes for different folks ?
