The UKâ€™s prestige and performance motor show MPH â€™07 has conducted a poll in order to determine the average persons perfect car and passenger, with the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Scarlett Johansson coming up trumps â€“ and who could blame the Brits for this outcome.
Scarlett received 23 percent of the vote and narrowly beat the recently crowned sexiest woman in the world, Jessica Alba (22 percent) to the passenger seat.
The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione beat the competition hands down, taking a decisive 30 percent of the vote. Closest rivals included the (until recently) worlds fastest production car the Bugatti Veyron (13 percent) and the Ferrari F430 (11 percent). All of which are planned to be on show at this yearâ€™s MPH Motor Show at Londonâ€™s Earls Court and Birminghamâ€™s NEC in November.
The crown for most popular male passenger was shared by Top Gear and MPH â€™07 presenters Jeremy Clarkson (7 percent) and The Stig (7 percent), who were the victors over heartthrobs Lewis Hamilton (2 percent), David Beckham (1 percent), and Daniel Craig (1 percent) â€“ which just goes to show that a good sense of humour can make up for ordinary looksâ€¦thankfully.
For Australian fans of the Alfa Romeo 8C and Scarlett Johansson it is probably fair to assume that seeing either in real life is about as likely as having a wet winter. However, it does look as though plans are afoot to bring the MPHâ€™07 show and its Top Gear hosts to Australia in 2008, which is not a bad consolation prize.
