We thought it was getting to be a long time since Forbes had put together another Top Ten list, but this time the journal of choice for successful businessmen put a twist on the annual tradition: instead of simply picking ten cars and assigning ranks by degree of sexiness, Forbes picked the sexiest ride for each of ten categories of personalities, including ballers, mobsters, divorcés and talent agents. If you don't fit into any of the categories, chances are you probably don't have the cash to spend on any of these cars. But if you've got the greenbacks and don't match the list, you might have to figure it out for yourself.

It's all a matter of taste, but Chris Bangle fans will notice the conspicuous absence of any BMWs, while enthusiasts of Italian automobiles will take note of the the Maserati, the Lamborghini and the two Ferraris that made the cut.

Here's what Forbes has nominated for this year:

  • Sexiest Car for Hip-Hop Moguls: Rolls-Royce Phantom
  • Sexiest Car for Hollywood Agents: Lexus LS Hybrid
  • Sexiest Car for Miami Beach Plastic Surgeons: Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster
  • Sexiest Car for Mobsters: Cadillac Escalade & EXT
  • Sexiest Car for Newly Divorced Dads: Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
  • Sexiest Car for Newly Divorced Moms: Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG
  • Sexiest Car for Lobbyists: Cadillac CTS
  • Sexiest Car for Forbes Readers: Maserati Quattroporte
  • Sexiest Car for NBA Players: Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
  • Sexiest Car for Driving Purists: Aston Martin DB9 and Ferrari F430 (tie)

We'll take one of each, please.

      why would you show this "attack of the blogs" cover and not even mention it? Im much more interested in what they have to say about blogs than .01 percent of the populations bad taste in cars. That story is not even mentioned on the cover.

      Hold up they forgot two entries:

      Sexiest car for gays= Toyota Prius
      Sexiest car for lesbians= Jeep Wrangler

      ...perhaps Jeremy wasn't speaking from homophobia, but from experience. Maybe he is very happy with his Prius and maybe his sister is thrilled with her Wrangler. You've got to read these things with an open mind.

      I'm with JSRacy, what's with the blog story? Sounds like someone profits (or lack there of) have created quite the resentment.

      No, there was an article not too long ago about this same topic. It rated the sexiest and the "for" each of those same categories only the ones I added were on there as well. Damn, all you have to do is reiterate another article and those that are truly homophobic come out and instantly proclaim that any statement made about them is instantly anti-gay. Man you guys need a life!

      The last time Forbes had any relevant or interesting content was... mmm... I don't remember they ever had.

      10 best whatever list does not really qualify. Except on digg.

      Chris Bangle fans????? - love the mobsters choice - why does the mob usually drive caddys? Even in Japan the fwood broughams were their vehicle of choice.

      Whoops, that's supposed to say "the best for" not "for"...
      • 7 Years Ago
      Thanks for the homophobia, Jeremy. Not sure how I would have gotten through my day without it.
      • 7 Years Ago
      How can a DB9 tie with a f430 for "driving purists". One is a lardy GT cruiser and one is a hardcore sports car.

      That has to be the most pointless top 10 list i've EVER seen, and I've seen a lot of pointless lists.

      Sexiest environmentally friendly car: Tesla roadster

      They got it wrong. Sexiest car for Nascar fans - Chevy Corvette. Really. Only trashy women find Corvettes sexy real women know the type of men that drive them.
