5 Cars That Will Send the Best Message on Your First Date
When it comes to impressing a woman on your first date there are so many things to consider, from your choice of venue to your dress sense. If you are thinking of picking her up in a car, this can go a long way towards determining if there’s likely to be a second date. So if you want to excite her, here are five of the best cars that will get her heart racing much more than a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
If only for the subliminal message that the person she’ll expect to see opening the door will be 007 in his finest tuxedo, the Aston Martin oozes class and sophistication. Its sleek and aerodynamic design has graced many a spy thriller, either gliding across a sun-kissed boulevard en route to picking up James Bond’s latest squeeze to escort her to the casino, or tearing away from the guys in black.
When you pick up your date, invite her towards her seat by opening the butterfly doors, not just outwards and away from the curb, but also upwards. As for the interior, the leather seating epitomizes comfort and the seats also benefit from internal heating. Entertainment-wise, you have access to a complete infotainment system, as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The stereo is by Bang & Olufsen. Obviously.
While you make your way towards the location for your romantic encounter you can wow your passenger with the combination of noise refinement and luxurious seats. You’ll also exude the type of confidence that always impresses, as this car offers stability at high-speed, coupled with quick and easy steering and top-class grip levels.
For those of us not receiving the salary of a covert MI5 operative, there is always the option of a far more functional VW. This model has often been described as one of the finest small cars on the planet, and quite rightly so. Like the Golf that preceded it, the Up is a vehicle that appears compact and robust, yet is aerodynamically designed to look and feel far more sophisticated than the ubiquitous Golf. This is the very last car you would expect your aging neighbor to be driving to the golf course in.
With start-stop functionality, battery regeneration, and low rolling resistant tires, this car is ideal for a romantic excursion but is also totally practical. Also with heated seating, there is no reason why your date wouldn’t get hot under the collar when invited to take her seat beside you in this German beauty.
Slightly cumbersome-looking and with opinion dividing air bumps fitted on the doors, this French car is actually perfect for your first date for two main reasons. Firstly, the glove compartment is very spacious indeed, which makes it perfect if you are taking advantage of a sunny day to whisk her away for a picnic somewhere. Secondly, the front seats will convert to a recliner, which is ideal if you really hit it off with your partner and wish to relax and whisper sweet nothings later.
Audi R8 Spyder
There is a very fine line to tread between impressing a girl with your confidence and unique style, and overpowering her with a sense of conceitedness. Thankfully this wonderful sporty car strikes a balance. It certainly looks impressive enough to inspire double-takes when you’re waiting in traffic or cruising along with the top down. But it’s not too ostentatious so you won’t risk looking like an avid fan of a certain long-running car-orientated TV show that is going through a midlife crisis.
Lustrous Italian cars have a reputation as large as their price tags. There are Lamborghinis and Ferraris, most models of which will make you look as if you’ve arrived for your first date straight from a training session at Manchester City—all flashy style and zero substance. The Quattroporte captures the sophistication of other Italian cars but tones it down considerably. Regardless of whether you are familiar with meeting single girls online or in any other social setting, it doesn’t look showy in the slightest, and can only succeed in impressing as you whisk your date off to an unforgettable evening.
