Do you Drive a Gay Car?

By: Joe Ratzkin

Is your car the gayest? Wheels24, a South African website spent 3 weeks running a poll to vest the "Alternative Car of the Year" title. After furious voting online, Wheels24 divulged the 3 new car models that wowed auto crowd the most. From there, the gayest and straightest cars were named.

At the finish line is the vivacious Peugeot 207, which was named the "gayest car." Next to it is the muscular Audi RS4, which was tagged the "straightest car." Alfa Romeo Brera was also awarded the "rear of the year" title.

The chosen cars for the three categories were all launched this year. Since said campaign was an instant success, Wheels24 decided to make it an annual event. Visitors of said website can vote for their favorite newly released cars to make them one of the most popular in the auto industry.

The Alternative Car of the Year campaign was conducted in cooperation with Road Angel Navigator, SA's premier in-car global positioning system (GPS). Said campaign has recorded more than 16 000 votes.

On the gayest car title, Peugeot 207 got 7155 votes, BMW 3 Series Coupe with 3378 votes, Jaguar XK with 2571, Honda Civic Hatch 1776, and Alfa Romeo 159 with 1293 votes. These cars are designed to capture the fetishes of car owners who wanted no less than striking, sleek and stylish cars that are worthy of every person's attention. Gay cars are curvaceous and atypical. This is the reason why they are loved by artsy aficionados.

On the straightest car title, Audi RS4 garnered 9824 votes, next is Toyota Fortuner with 2629, Dodge Caliber got 1808 votes, Volkswagen Jetta with 979, and Lexus IS250 with 936. These cars are bulky and muscular. They don't have that shapely curves but they sure have endurance and performance. Audi, Toyota and .
