Our membership traditionally have a considerable amount of expendable income, so luxury brands are very much a part of their lives as consumers. There is certainly a comparison to be drawn between the status-enhancing nature of having a mistress, and that of owning an expensive car.
(PRWeb UK) July 9, 2010
A nationwide survey by adulterous dating website IllicitEncounters.com has shown that BMW, Audi and Mercedes drivers are most likely to cheat over any other car owner.
The survey, which questioned 4,587 members of the site on all things motor-related, discovered that a whopping 21% of the site’s membership own a BMW, 18% own an Audi and 17% a Merc.
The study also found that the average web adulterer would happily travel up to 100 miles for the perfect affair partner.
In preparation for this year’s British F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone on Sunday, the site’s female members were asked which F1 driver they would most like to have an Illicit Encounter with. 30-year old current World champion Jenson Button received a landslide of propositions, scooping up 48% of the female vote, whilst Australian Red Bull ace Mark Webber and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso drew at 2nd place with exactly 389 votes each. Missing out on a podium finish in fourth was Maclaren’s young gun Lewis Hamilton, whilst ageing German Michael Schumacher trailed in last.
Adam Scott, CEO of IllicitEncounters.com, states that many of the site’s male members are car enthusiasts. “Our membership traditionally have a considerable amount of expendable income, so luxury brands are very much a part of their lives as consumers. There is certainly a comparison to be drawn between the status-enhancing nature of having a mistress, and that of owning an expensive car.”
When asked to name their ultimate dream car, Illicit Encounter’s male philanderers were more patriotic however, opting for the latest super car models from British marques McLaren and Aston Martin followed by the ever popular Bugatti Veyron.
1. McLaren MP4-12C
2. Aston Martin One-77
3. Bugatti Veyron SS
4. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
5. Ferarri 599 GTO
6. Lamborghini Gallardo lp570-4 Superleggera
IlliicitEncounters.com is the UK’s largest extramarital dating website, and in the next few weeks, expects its membership to reach half a million, representing 2.5% of the UK’s married population.
