The sound of a luxury sports car revving its engine makes women feel sexy, according to a survey.

A study tested men's and women's responses to the roaring engines of three luxury cars, in addition to an everyday vehicle.

The 40 participants listened to the recordings of a Maserati, a Lamborghini and a Ferrari, along with a Volkswagon Polo, before having a saliva specimen collected.

They believed loud noises, such as the revving of an engine, were likely to have an arousing effect on an individual's physiology.

By measuring levels of testosterone, a hormone which indicates arousal, the study was able to measure the car's stimulating effects.

The results found 100 per cent of female participants had a significant increase in testosterone secretion after listening to the Maserati, compared to only half for men.

Men fared better at the sound of a Lamborghini, with 60 per cent showing a testosterone increase.

Psychologist David Moxon, who conducted the study commissioned by motor insurer Hiscox, said: "We saw significant peaks, particularly in women.

"The roar of a luxury car engine does cause a primeval physiological response."

He added the sound of an average car engine actually led to a decreased level of testosterone.

More than any other, the sound of one car's vroom-vroom makes women feel oh so sexy! And that car is a Maserati.

In a study conducted by British car insurer Hiscox, a stunning 100 percent of the women polled had a significant increase in testosterone secretion after hearing the roar of a Maserati's engine. Testosterone is the hormone for both men and women that makes them feel sexy.

London's Telegraph reports that study leader and psychologist David Moxon believed that loud noises, such as the revving of an engine, would have an arousing effect on an individual's physiology. Turns out, he was right.

In this study, 40 men and women listened to recordings of the roaring engines of three luxury cars and one everyday vehicle: a Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Volkswagon Polo. Saliva samples were collected to measure testosterone secretion.

While the Maserati made 100 percent of the women feel sexy, it only had that effect on half the men. While there was no one car that had such a significant impact on the men, 60 percent showed a testosterone increase at the sound of a Lamborghini.

"We saw significant peaks, particularly in women," Moxon told the Telegraph about the vroom-vroom of the Masarati. "The roar of a luxury car engine does cause a primeval physiological response."

And what about the Volkswagon Polo? The sound of this average car engine actually led to a decreased level of testosterone!

So that is why you have so much work Mario? The customers rev the car, chicks jump all over it and want to get rooted on it, scratch the shit out of it, then you have to come to correct the paint???

That is a good business model, now you can claim a Maserati as a business expense as the sound creates work for you lol  :thumbsup:
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!
