LONDON, UK 01 August 2012 – If you want to impress on a first date then a Lamborghini or Porsche is the clear favourite with men and women, according to a survey by carhiremarket.com, which reveals that sports cars top the list of the most impressive wheels. In contrast, pulling up to pick up a prospective date in an electric vehicle or pimped up car is a definite no-no.
The survey of 1,000 Brits also reveals that for the older lady or gent, a vintage car like a Bentley or Rolls Royce could be just the ticket to securing a second date.
And it seems that size really does matter, as one in five men would be impressed to see their date driving a large 4x4, while surprisingly women like to see their partner in a small and cheeky car like a mini, rather than a Chelsea tractor.
What’s inside the car is also important, with a smelly interior being the biggest turn off. Women are also keen to avoid their dates having a baby seat in the back, while men are more likely to reel at a mass of dog hair or wet towels.
If you don’t think your wheels are up to the job, why not hire a car for the day to impress your date? Here are some of the latest deals in the UK from carhiremarket.com, which start for collection from 12:00 on 10th August for 24 hours:
