That’s right, you heard me. Girls. Getting your first car leads, always, to more interest from women…doesn’t it? Well no, it doesn’t, but that’s what we all wanted to believe. And why the women didn’t flock to my open window as I cruised around suburban Hertfordshire in my Renault Clio? I’ll never know.
Having said that, some cars are undeniable chick magnets, and we reckon we’ve come up with a pretty good top seven below. If you disagree, let us know below by leaving a comment!
Ah yes, even the name makes you think of moustache-wearing men in California, crusing down Route 1 with a girl by their side, doesn’t it? With a bonnet bigger than a king sized bed, it’s no wonder this car speaks to the females like no other. Remember the 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 in the movie 'Gone in 60 seconds' called Eleanor? Here she is...
The original 1950s Corvette was a convertible, and that’s really all you need to know, isn’t it? Every schoolboy’s dream was to have a convertible car, and every schoolgirl wanted a boy with a convertible car. It’s another from the all American school of chick magnets, and you can easily see why – nowadays its retro-ness only adds to its sex appeal.
Range Rover Sport
This entry on the list is a bit unusual. Are Range Rover Sports really sexy? No, it’s quite clear they’re not. They’re big, brash, shady – even more so when they have blacked out windows. The sex appeal in the Range Rover Sport is all on the inside: the entertainment systems, the sound quality, the smooth ride, the speed…and the fact that the driver clearly has money. Not that I’m saying women just chase the pound…
Another car that just shouts luxury from the rooftops, but there’s no denying this is a beautiful car and there’s no surprise that it’s a magnet – and not just for chicks. Literarily called the Maserati four door, even having a rubbish name (which is only rubbish in Italian) doesn’t put us off. The interior is just as sexy, with dark wood-effect and leather everywhere. Delicious.
You’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve mistakenly just read Toyota Prius. Imagine – a Toyota Prius on a list of chick magnet cars! Unthinkable, isn’t it? Nope, not at all. Here’s some news for you – geeky girls just can’t get enough of the Prius – it’s electric, hybrid and probably somehow does more good for the environment than bad. In terms of smog rating, this is one of the cleanest vehicles on sale in the United States and no doubt it’s the same here. So if you’re wanting to show a girl you’re a caring, gentle type, then a Prius is for you.
If like me you struggle to see past your Nan’s battered old Micra when you think of Nissan, then it’s time to move on – Nissan have made some pretty nice sports cars, and the 350Z was no exception. A two-door roadster, this car comes with enough va-va-voom to make girls the world over turn their heads when one goes past – and given it could, by the uneducated, be confused from certain angles for an Audi TT, then you’re laughing all the way to the wedding chapel in the woman stakes.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
The stand out feature of the SLS AMG is of course the doors, which open upwards. Girls love something a bit different and that’s why this car, which may otherwise just seem like a very nice but somewhat generic Merc, completes our list of top chick magnet cars. Of course, being able to do 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds helps too.
If you decide to go with the last option and choose a Mercedes, you might need an extended warranty from http://www.gocarwarranty.co.uk/mercedes-car-warranty in case you're not buying a brand-new Mercedes-Benz.
