One in three judge potential partners by what they drive or ride

Aston Martin DB11, Ducati 1299 Superleggera

A new study of Brits has found that one in three judge their potential partners by what they drive or ride - the Aston Martin DB11 was deemed the sexiest car and the Ducati 1299 Superleggera was seen as the sexiest motorcycle.

Ironically, only 12 per cent of single Brits surveyed considered their own car or motorcycle to be sexy but it was a factor potential partners were judged on.

The study, which was carried out by WMB, started by asking respondents “Do you judge someone you’re dating based on what vehicle they drive/ride?” to which 32 per cent admitted that they did tend to.

When asked what type of vehicle they hoped for when looking to date someone (as in, what their potential partner drove or rode), respondents cited ‘something sexy’ (32 per cent), ‘something fast’ (29 per cent) and ‘something reliable’ (20 per cent) as what they found to be the most appealing.

According to the study, here's a list of cars and motorbikes that were considered to be the most sexy:


1. Aston Martin DB11 - 53%

2. 1967 Ford Mustang GT 500 - 51%

3. Porsche Carrera GT - 44%

4. Jaguar F Type - 41%

5. Ferrari 458 - 37%


1. Ducati 1299 Superleggera - 43%

2. MV Augusta F3 RC - 36%

3. KTM 1290 Super Duke R - 35%

4. 1948 Vincent Black Shadow Lightening - 32%

5. 1925 Borough Superior SS100 - 28%
