Ditch the Ferrari for the first date
Fast cars impress blokes' mates, but not their dates, new research suggests.
Boy racers may like to think that revving up to a first date in a flashy sports car will excite a woman, but research from car insurer LV= says otherwise.
Men placed the iconic Ferrari at the top of their list when asked which car they felt would impress on a first date, but only nine per cent of women said that they would be swept off their feet by such a vehicle.
In contrast, most women preferred something classy but understated like a BMW or a Mercedes.
Martin Milliner at LV= said: "What impresses your mates may not impress your date, and our survey shows that pulling up in a smart car with a touch of luxury will flick more of the right switches than a flame-red two-seater.
"Dating experts warn that women look for signs of stability rather than risk-taking from a partner, so even those who don't have a flashy sports car should keep in mind that safe driving is likely to make a stronger first impression than boy-racing."
