Top 10 Cars Women Love Seeing Men Drive
Drive these cars and watch your Q rating shoot up to levels you never thought it could reachby Kirby Garlitos, on LISTEN 11:44
Cars may serve the primary purpose of transporting people from point A to point B, but that’s not all there is to it regarding these four-wheeled rides. Just as important are the optics that come with owning a specific type of car. One such optic is the appeal these cars have towards the opposite sex.
Yes, it’s vanity manifested on four wheels, but that’s the world we live in now. The vehicle you drive says as much about your appearance as the clothes you wear or the hairstyle you’re sporting. Gone are the days when cars were thought of as just modes of transportation; today, they’re an extension of your image. That’s especially true when we’re talking about how your car affects the other gender’s perception of you.
If you’re a man, the kind of car you drive is a big barometer to your appeal to women. Drive a clunky lemon and your appeal rating drops faster than an anchor in the ocean. Drive a truck or a sports car and your appeal shoots up to heights unseen. It is what it is, and in that light, these are the cars you might want to drive if you want the fairer gender to see you in a new — and more positive — light.
Nothing says sexy more than a Lamborghini, and if you happen to own, say, a Huracan Performante, then prepare yourself to get flooded with attention from women and men alike. Forget about the drop-dead gorgeous design of the Huracan Performante. Forget about its powerful 5.2-liter V-10 engine that, by the way, produces 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.
Unless she’s a certified gearhead, not a lot of women care enough to know that the supercar can also sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds and that it boasts a top speed of 209 mph. The attention you get from owning a Lamborghini Huracan Performante boils down to the manufacturer that built it. It’s a Lamborghini. That’s all people need to know to think that you’re cool and, just as important, you have a fat bank account.
|Engine:||5.2-liter V-10 engine|
|Torque:||443 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||2.3 seconds|
|Top Speed:||209 mph|

A Lamborghini is a chick magnet by the simple mention of its name. Only a handful of other supercar brands have that kind of clout, and it just so happens that Ferrari is also part of that exclusive club.
You can argue, too, that Ferrari is more popular than any car brand in the world. It’s the first brand people think of when they think about supercars, and that includes women. Ask a female if she knows “Koenigsegg,” and, at best, you’ll get an “I think so.” Ask her if she knows about the Prancing Horse from Maranello and they’ll probably ask you if you have one.
Say that you do, in fact, have a Ferrari Portofino. Females probably don’t know that it technically counts as the “entry-level” Ferrari; they just know that it’s fast, powerful, and it’s a Ferrari. That’s the power of the Prancing Horse, folks. Show up in one, and their knees immediately start getting wobbly.
|Engine:||3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine|
|Torque:||560 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||3.1 seconds|
|Top Speed:||199 mph|
|Weight:||3,406 pounds (1,545 kilos)|
|Power-to-weight Ratio (Horsepower per US tonne):||347|

Smooth, fast cars will always attract the attention of the female population. No more is that statement accurate than by watching how women react to a man who steps out of a Porsche 911 Turbo S.
Four different studies conducted at the University of Texas - San Antonio, the University of Minnesota, and Rice University determined that women aged between 18 and 57 “like guys in expensive cars.”
Even if it doesn’t qualify as one of the most expensive sports cars in the market, the 911 Turbo S exudes the confidence and pedigree of one. It certainly helps that it’s often described as a man’s ultimate dream car. At the very least, owning a 911 Turbo S suggests that you worked hard to get one, and that kind of drive and determination is appealing to women.
|Engine:||3.8-liter flat-six engine|
|Torque:||590 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||2.6 seconds|
|Top Speed:||205 mph|
|Weight:||3,528 pounds (1,600 kilos)|
|Power-to-weight Ratio (Horsepower per US tonne):||363|

The Chevrolet Corvette is such a chick car that men don’t need to be attractive to get a woman’s attention. The Corvette does it for them. It’s one thing for a woman to approach you and ask about the Corvette you’re driving. It’s another thing entirely for another woman to approach from the other side of a Corvette, open the door, sit inside, and tell you to “take her for a ride.”
One Corvette owner from the Corvette Stingray forum shared that experience. It sounds outlandish on the surface, but, if you think about it, these are the kinds of experiences that Corvette owners get simply by owning and driving the sports car. If that’s not the definition of a babe magnet sports car, I don’t know what is.
|Engine:||6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine|
|Torque:||650 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||3.0 seconds|
|Top Speed:||205 mph|
|Weight:||3,130 pounds (1,420 kilos)|

The classic Jaguar E-Type may be a curious choice for this list, but nothing attracts the attention of the fairer sex than a car so sexy you get goosebumps by simply touching its bodywork. That’s the kind of reaction the E-Type commands.
The two-seater sports car is arguably the sexiest-looking car this side of the Aston Martin DB5.
Its near-perfect proportions are as enchanting as they are hypnotizing to men and women alike. Yes, the E-Type is the kind of car that’s attractive to both men and women. Imagine owning one and driving it down the road. The wide-eyed stares you’re getting aren’t just coming from the female population; they’re coming from the entire population.
It helps, too, that the E-Type boasts a powerful 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that’s coupled to a four-speed manual transmission. In every shape, form, and function, the old-school Jaguar E-Type is a certified guy car.
|Engine:||3.8-liter six-cylinder engine|
|Torque:||240 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||6.4 seconds|
|Top Speed:||153 mph|
|Weight:||2,900 pounds (1,315 kilos)|

There once was a time when Tesla occupied only a niche segment in the auto market. Those days are obviously long gone. Today, Tesla is regarded as one of the most forward-thinking car brands in the market. Its appeal revolves largely around its conscientious approach in championing for electrification in the industry.
The Tesla Model S sits as Tesla’s current flagship model, and it has proven itself to be one of the most attractive cars identified by the female population.
Sure, the Model S doesn’t look particularly inspiring, but what it does offer is a combination of features and capabilities that make it stand out from the rest of the auto world. It also helps that women find men who own a Model S to be “intelligent” and “conscientious” of the environment.
These indicators come as results from a British survey that the Mother Nature Network reported. Anytime you can make people think you’re smart and possess through-the-roof self-awareness, you go ahead and pursue it. In this case, it means buying — and flaunting — a Tesla Model S. Opt for a high-performance Model S Performance Raven, and you can watch your appeal to women go through the roof.
|Powertrain:||100-kWh battery pack|
|Torque:||824 pound-feet of torque|

Let’s face it. Not everyone’s fit to drive a Mercedes S-Class and look good doing it. DeAnna Lorraine, a dating coach, commented that a man’s choice of vehicle sends a message about his character that females can immediately sniff out.
If you’re a 20-year-old driving a Mercedes S-Class, you could be characterized as a trust fund baby, breaking the bank using your family’s money. But if you’re in your 30’s or 40’s and you drive an S-Class, you exude the confidence of a man who has worked hard to achieve his goals.
You know what you want, and you set out and achieve your goals through hard work. These types of men attract women their age who are into sophistication, class, and enjoy being taken care of. It helps, too, that the S-Class boasts a peerless reputation of its own. It’s one of the most pristine-looking cars in the market with a to-die-for interior and a powerful engine lineup.
|Powertrain:||5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine|
|Torque:||339 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||4.3 seconds|
|Top Speed:||155 mph|
|Weight:||4,850 pounds (2,200 kilos)|

When it comes to SUVs, there isn’t one model that provides the kind of buck-to-attention ratio quite like the Land Rover Range Rover.
The Range Rover is an all-timer in the list of best cars for men.
It combines incredible performance capabilities with an unmistakable look and a reputation for being a girl magnet. Yes, folks. Women love guys who drive a Range Rover, so much so that a survey conducted by travel search website Skyscanner revealed that SUVs was the top choice category for women car buyers, and among all SUVs in the market, the Range Rover earned top marks as the most desirable SUV of the lot.
Women love the Range Rover to the extent that if they see you driving in one, their curiosities immediately get piqued. Granted, purchasing a Range Rover is going to put a serious dent on your wallet relative to other SUVs in the market, but is there really a price you wouldn’t pay if one of the benefits that come with it is a woman’s undivided attention?
|Powertrain:||5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine|
|Torque:||461 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||5.1 seconds|
|Top Speed:||155 mph|
|Weight:||5,230 pounds (2,360 kilos)|

The Lexus ES is neither flashy nor is it expensive. It’s not fast and it certainly isn’t super powerful. But the ES does have a quality to it that’s attractive to the female population. It’s a car that represents a man who values luxury, comfort, and above all else, practicality in his car. Lexus ES owners typically have the money to splurge on more high-profile luxury sedans like, say, a Mercedes C-Class or maybe even a BMW 5 Series. But just because he can afford those models, that doesn’t mean that he should automatically buy one.
Resisting these models in favor of a Lexus ES shows the kind of emotional restraint that a lot of girls like in their men. The ES still imbibes quality and class, but it does so without flaunting its status and burying people with its price tag. The ES doesn’t scream “masculine car,” but it still counts as one for those who know what they want without being tempted to splurge on a more expensive alternative. Chicks dig that kind of restraint.
|Powertrain:||3.5-liter V-6 engine|
|Torque:||267 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||6.7 seconds|
|Top Speed:||130 mph|
|Weight:||3,649 pounds (1,655 kilos)|
|Power-to-weight Ratio (Horsepower per US tonne):||166|

Bimmers are Bimmers, and for the most part, women are attracted to BMW models, especially if you’re talking about a model like the BMW M6 Convertible.
Sure, this particular model isn’t available anymore, but during its time, the M6 Convertible combined a lot of the elements that made for a great bachelor’s car.
It was big, fast, luxurious, powerful, and it carried the unmistakable BMW badge that has made women weak in the knees. The M6 Convertible is the type of vehicle that attracts good-looking, wild, and power-lusting women, so says relationship coach DeAnna Lorraine, who spearheaded a survey analyzing cars, the men who drive them, and the women they attract. It’s a shame that BMW has discontinued the M6 Convertible. The last-generation model had a good five-year run as a girl magnet.
|Powertrain:||4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine|
|Torque:||501 pound-feet of torque|
|0 to 60 mph:||4.3 seconds|
|Top Speed:||155 mph|
|Weight:||4,244 pounds (1,925 kilos)|
|Power-to-weight Ratio (Horsepower per US tonne):||132|
