Car-maker Maserati is hyping itself as the “world’s sexiest car, scientically speaking,” on the back of results of a recent study, conducted by British luxury car insurer Hiscox, “in which participants were asked to listen to the sound of a variety of cars, from exotics to economy models,” says the company. “The sound of a Maserati engine was shown to spark a biological response among women — in fact, 100 percent of the women studied had shown higher testosterone levels after listening to the exhaust of a Maserati than any other car!”
Insurance implications notwithstanding, the company is offering cell phone ringtones to men looking to boost their own levels or “>conduct [their] own research.” Check out the promo vid here or text “>Maserati” to number 707070 to get the ringtone.
We wonder when Hiscox might do the same with diesel tractors. . . .
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
