There are differing opinions on what defines a manly car, but one thing is for sure, no self-respecting man should ever be caught dead driving one of these.

05 Apr 2018

Some say sports cars such as the Nissan Skyline GT-R, Audi RS5, Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evolution are manly while others think that real men drive muscle cars and 4x4s like the Land Rover Defender, Hummer H1 and Ford F-150 Raptor. Whatever the case may be, we can all agree on the fact that some cars were clearly designed with the woman driver in mind.

Before you get all riled up and start a vlog rant on how this article is elitist, sexist or demeaning to the fairer sex, calm yourself. Any man, or woman, is entitled to drive whatever car they want.
