Forbes is a business magazine with a penchant for the good life. And for lists. Every year it publishes provocative lists about lifestyle subjects.
The latest is the “Wheels Women Melt Over.” As the magazines website,, says: “A babe magnet can be a car or even a truck.” It notes that [they’re usally expensive and therefore exclusive; sporty; never boring.” ... “A babe magnet’s effectiveness depends on different tastes, even different locations. But most of all, it depends on the woman.”
Here’s the list:

  1. Aston Martin DB9. “James Bond Babe Magnet.” $162,050. Until the DBS comes out.
  2. Bentley Continental GT. “Upwardly Mobil Babe Magnet.” $169,990. “As at home in front of the manse as it is at the club.”
  3. Cadillac Escalade. “Bold and Brazen Babe Magnet.” Starts at $55,570. “As bling on wheels as you can get.”
  4. Dodge Magnum SRT9. “Suburban Babe Magnet.” Starts at $38,345. “You’re not alone if you find something weird about a station wagon as a babe magnet, but for the right woman, it might do the trick.”
  5. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. “Rodeo Drive Babe Magnet.” Starts at $260,969. “Just about any Ferrari is a babe magnet.”
  6. Lamborghini Gallardo. “Las Vegas Babe Magnet.” Starts at $178,550. You can rent one by the Vegas airport, but “just remember the car you rent in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas.”
  7. Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG. “Beach Babe Magnet.” Starts at $186,000. “The ultimate babe magnet for a trip to the seashore... with the retractable aluminum top down, you can work on your tan.”
  8. Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe. “Car Nut Babe Magnet.” Starts at $122,900. “Paul Newman (a walking babe magnet) raced one at LeMans in 1979.”
  9. Supercharged Range Rover Sport. “Horse Country Babe Magnet.” Starts at $71,250. “Like a Range Rover, only better.”
  10. Toyota Prius. “Green Babe Magnet.” Touring Edition starts at $23,070. “It’s rated at 55 mpg, and that’s sexy to green babes.”

Forbes does not, however, answer the question of why – if it takes a Prius to do it – one would want to attract a “green babe.”
