Top Gear crowns Fiat 500 as Sexiest Car in the World

Wah? Top Gear conducted a survey to find the Sexiest Car in the World, the results of which appear in the recently released September issue. The results: the Fiat 500 is the Sexiest Car in the World. We'll repeat – wah? The Fiat 500 earned the provocative title ahead of such vehicles as the Aston Martin DBS, Maserati Quattroporte, Alfa Brera and Ferrari Enzo. Apparently the Fiat 500 emits pheromones out its tailpipe, as we'd say the tiny micro mini makes a curious choice for hottest ride the world over. Top Gear editor James May says of the Fiat 500 that it, "advertises nothing about its owner, except that it's someone who doesn't need to try. So you look, and you know. You would, wouldn't you?"

The title of Sexiest Car in the World couldn't have come at a better time for Fiat, which is planning on releasing an updated version of the 500 soon. You can check out spy shots of the new Fiat 500 here, or visit the minisite set up by Fiat to count down the days until the car's release.
