'Chick-magnet' cars revealed

Quoted from http://www.news.com.au/common/story_...E13762,00.html

----------------------------------------------

IF $92,000 is not too high a price for a dream date, any Aussie bloke is sure to snap up a high-class lady with a BMW Z4, according to a new guide to "chick magnet" cars.


Make an impression: The 2003 BMW Z4 Roadster.


The sleek open-roofed two-seater rated tops in the "how to impress test", hailed as the machine for luring the most discerning, gorgeous women.

In a blow for Holden, test drivers said its Monaro CV8 muscle car had little success turning female heads, even though they definitely had the respect of other guys.

For those seeking a woman from the "burbs", or a petrolhead groupie, the Ford Falcon XR6 won the thumbs up.

According to the guide, a car is often the difference between grabbing attention and being ignored.

"Like it or not, the vehicle you drive is an indispensable part of public image," researcher Antony Otera said.

But Toyota Starlet owners should not despair.

Dr Sally Cockburn, aka Dr Feelgood of 3AW, said while nice cars grabbed the attention, they could also reduce a man's chances.

"The gift wrapping always turns heads, but it's what's inside that counts," Dr Cockburn said. "A lot of women look at an expensive fast car and wonder if the man at the wheel is trying to make up for something lacking elsewhere."

Twenty cars were tested by Australian Penthouse
