    I mean I don't get aroused (much), but for something so unnatural, I wonder why we see beauty in them.

    I never find them sexy nor do I refer to cars and other inanmite objects as females. But some of them have really awe inspiring designs.

    I feel something different, it's not heterosexual, but I just can't stop staring at it's shape, and thinking about how it moves around a track.

    They're made to be pleasing to the eye. We want them to look "expensive" not "junky". This is a ploy by the automotive industry to get us to WANT to buy the expensive cars. Not everyone is going to WANT a Ford Escort or a Pinto. We want the Jaguar, Mercedes, or even Bugatti. It's all about status unfortunately.

    Maybe you just like boy cars? You know it's when a boy doesn't like a girl for more than a friend, but likes a boy more than a friend, and that is okay in the modern society, no need to feel ashamed.

    Jokes aside, I do refer to cars as beauties and usually as a "she", but I don't specifically get aroused by them, I just love the looks on them. Now of course, we're not talking about a Fiat Multipla here, those things just make me feel nauseous.

    I think it's even deeper than that. This car is made purely for performance, no room for aesthetics at all, but I get the same thought.

    That I wonder and can't stop looking at exactly because it's a beast, it shouldn't be possible, yet due to precision engineering and amazing driving skills make those fly around the track.

    Lol that definitely needs some love! Drive it around a track's apexes then it will look hot. Maybe I'm just an F1 junkie so I've grown an attachment to they way cars move, handle and look. But other people just like cars period. I don't actually even own a car.

    I should add that the OP car was also made purely for performance with zero aesthetic intention, maybe you've hit something about engineering and driving excellence, I think about the air flowing over the car as per the aerodynamics, among other things.

    I love this car because of it's aggressive look in the back.

    Try this Volkswagen instead. It has seen so many chicks than any other vans in the world in the last 2 years. It's on sale now and I'm serious about it.
