In a poll recently conducted for the MPH 07 travelling road show, folks were asked to vote on their favourite â€˜piece of assâ€™â€¦in the world of cars. The posterior poll oddly enough featured the sort of cars that you are only likely to see the rear of in the real world anyway with a couple of exceptions.
The best â€˜piece of assâ€™ award went to the Aston Martin DBS which narrowly nosed in front of the Bugatti Veyron for line honours. Alfa Romeoâ€™s stunning 8C Competizione came in third. Interestingly, women preferred the brawny Veyronâ€™s bottom while men preferred the elegance of the DBS.
Those polled were obviously given a list of cars to rank â€“ which is the only way I can comprehend anything from the current BMW range making its way into a top ten styling competition.
Position - Men / Women
1/. - Aston Martin DBS / Bugatti Veyron
2/. - Bugatti Veyron / Aston Martin DBS
3/. - Audi R8 / Alfa 8C Competizione
