Corvette has snagged another special recognition: named today as one of the world’s "sexiest cars". World & Travel Magazine (not to be confused with the more famous Road & Track Magazine) announced today the inclusion of Corvette on their list.
Martha Hindes wrote that, "Our adoration is for that unbridled, wind-in-the-hair ride, miles blazing by with blinding speed, seatback-plastering power that forces us rearward into yesterday at the surge of a floored, cast aluminum accelerator pedal, or the cat-grip control that bites through tenuous curves and switchback roads with absolute surety. They catch our breath with the lithe lines of sculptured, molded steel, bright metal trims, the glare of high intensity jeweled headlamps and the heart-pounding rumble of a sweet exhaust tone. These road rockets – the coupes, the roadsters, the musclebound ponies – are the sexy cars of our desire".
While Martha appears to have difficulty writing short sentences, she is spot-on in evaluating the Corvette as a sexy machine. Her description of the Z06 invokes images of Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, Matt Damon, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt.
I can’t recall these comparisons before, but her words "larger than life hunk-power" do seem to fit the Z06 very nicely!
Other cars listed are: Dodge Charger, Ford Mustang, Jaguar XK and XKR, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Mercedes-Benz SLK, Nissan 350Z, Porsche Cayman Coupe, Saturn Sky, and VW Eos Hard-Top Roadster.
