There is a list of accomplishments each man sets out to complete throughout his life: complete an education, land a high-paying job, find a loving and beautiful wife, start a family, and finally retire comfortably. Nestled nicely between the high-paying job and finding a beautiful wife, lies a dream to obtain the ultimate symbol of success that will improve his outlook on life.
Good-looking cars have long been associated with good-looking women. And there is some truth in the vehicular connection of woman and machine: Attractive women love attractive cars. It's all about a certain look, a certain attitude, and some cars speak for themselves -- sometimes with their name alone. Most women won't care about the power-to-weight ratio of a vehicle, but they'll quickly decide whether or not a car looks hot. Without question, there is a standard, well-known group of cars that perfectly fit the mold of "babe magnet."
Here is a list of five guaranteed-to-catch-her-eye automobiles scheduled for 2007.
1. Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
Why it's a babe magnet: She always wanted a pony, so you know she'll melt for this sexy stallion.
There are few car companies that can boast reactions of awe, jealousy, envy, lust, hatred, love, and sheer desire by simply uttering their name. Ferrari is definitely one of them. In all honesty, it doesn't matter what type, model, year, engine size, state or drivability your Italian stallion might be -- the key here is that you're driving a Ferrari. And the fact of the matter is that Ferrari has a degree of sex appeal that is far above any other exotic car.
Cars have become the ultimate fashion accessory, and it's always good to stick to the trends and to make sure that you have the latest look. In 2007, the Ferrari boutique has served up quite the number. The new 599 GTB Fiorano is the beauty and the beast in one machine. Every alluring inch of the Fiorano's all-aluminum body is designed for speed with a touch of high style.
Nothing was overlooked in the Fiorano, not even its name, which is the name of the circuit that Ferrari uses to test its vehicles. The 599 refers to the engine displacement. It's enough to invoke racing reveries and weekend getaways that would make James Bond envious. Producing 612 horsepower with its V12 engine, this steed is sure to make any woman cry out and beg for more. The cost of this sex-machine has not yet been determined, but speculations indicate $240,000. Can you really put a price on pure animal attraction?
Why its a babe magnet: This is the stuff dreams are made of -- now make hers come true.
Sitting a notch below true automotive sexual greatness is the baby bull itself, the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. This brutish drop-top will make the ladies swoon with a Colin Farrell bad-boy attitude. The newly designed convertible gives the standard Gallardo styling a new lease on life, and gives her more room to lean in for a closer look. With a price tag that hovers around $200,000, it's nearly impossible not to be dragged in by the powerful presence of this angularly modern sports car. Everything about this car begs to be noticed, whispered about and stared at -- there's no escaping attention in this ride, and that's just sitting still.
Equipped with a V10, this mini-Murcielago is no pushover with 520 horsepower and an engine sound that purrs with power. It's not difficult to see or hear why the Gallardo garners so much attention wherever it goes -- Lamborghini created a car with raw curb appeal that is nearly perfect.
Why it's a babe magnet: The name alone is enough to make her weak in the knees, so you should say it often.
If illusions of grandeur aren't enough for you and you truly want to rise above the average automobile on the road, then you must turn to the company that truly exudes an air of superiority -- Porsche. The name alone makes the speaker sound sophisticated and of good breeding.
For 2007, Porsche raised the bar on performance and styling once again with the new 911 Turbo. Porsche knows better than to undergo any radical reconstructive surgery: It has kept the famous protruding headlights and perfectly sculpted frame. Any babe will instantly recognize the greatness of the 911 Turbo.
Beneath its curvaceous form -- and vicious side intakes -- is a monster engine that produces 480 horsepower with a twin-turbo engine. The newly designed all-wheel drive system and the impressive Porsche Traction Management are engineered to keep this beauty hugging the road, even when you want to show off through some twisties.
If the handsome good looks of the 911 don't catch her eye, the rumble of the dual exhaust is sure to grab her attention -- Porsche's seduction skills are quite impressive. With only two seats, this $123,000 ride guarantees quality alone-time.
4. BMW M Coupe
Why it's a babe magnet: Social status wrapped up in an oh-so-stylish package that you'll have a blast driving.
If the Mercedes seems a little too corporate for your taste, yet you still want to grab attention on the road and ride in luxury, the answer to your troubles is the BMW M Coupe and its elegant styling and brilliant mechanics. A sibling of the popular Z4 Roadster, the M Coupe offers a unique look and an impressive driving experience that's sure to wow.
You can get her up to 60 mph in a mind-blowing 4.8 seconds -- a climax you'll be craving for in multiples. The M's stubby rear end is coiled and ready to spring into action with 333 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque -- just enough to take her breath away and leave her wanting more. This car is a status symbol and it's a status-maker. Whether you're driving to the corner for gas or cruising the downtown scene, the M Coupe gets the job done, and it makes you look damn good doing it. Hand-stitched leather interior, lumbar supported, and fully adjustable electronic seats ensure a comfortable ride. With a base MSRP of $48,900 the BMW truly becomes a sinful pleasure for both driver and passenger.
Why it's a babe magnet: Women love smooth looks with a smooth ride.
At number five, bringing up the rear, though definitely not behind the times in either technology or engineering, is the ever-classy Mercedes SL55 AMG convertible. A window sticker of $129,500 demands that this vehicle not be overlooked. How could you anyway? Count the number of heads you turn driving the SL55 while sporting your grubby weekend wear. It's hard to keep track, huh?
Once you've really caught a woman's eye, let her experience what makes the SL55 AMG the stud that it truly is. This Merc is more than a pretty face with its sleek lines and flowing form -- it also packs 517 horsepower and a 5.5L V8 Kompressor engine. The supple interior will caress your lady's form (don't get jealous), and its sheer power will make her scream with delight.
The design of the 2007 SL55 remains true to its predecessors with a regal front nose and shapely back end. Theres just enough chrome on the grill to add an edge of aggressiveness that will make her moan. The ultra-smooth AMG automatic transmission ensures that the ride will be silky for both of you -- and you wont have to worry about shifting any gears unless she wants you to.
