What New Car Do You Dream of Owning? Cars.com Visitors Take Elite Vehicles for Virtual Test Drive

High-end luxury and sports cars will forever stir the imagination of consumers.  From Rolls Royce to Bentley, from Ferrari to Lamborghini; these cars not only turn heads whenever consumers see them, their price tags put them in exclusive territory for all but a select few. These are the cars that many people love to look at, yet only a select few will ever have the means to purchase.

 Online, anyone can get a taste of these luxury vehicles, and dream if only for a few minutes of what it would be like to get behind the wheel. Cars.com has ranked the top 10 dream cars, defined as the cars with the most visits to their vehicle listings, but lowest percentage of people actually contacting a dealer through the site to inquire about making a purchase.

 Lamborghini tops the list, with the Gallardo and Murcielago in the number one and two spots respectively.

 "There is no arguing that both Lamborghinis have what it takes to turn heads offline and on. While not everyone can afford one, car lovers are lining up to take them for a virtual test drive on Cars.com," said Cars.com Editor in Chief, Patrick Olsen.  "Obviously, price factors into making them a dream car, since none of these cars has an MSRP below $120,000."

 The top ten dream cars include:

 

  • 1) Lamborghini Gallardo
  • 2) Lamborghini Murcielago
  • 3) Maybach Type 62
  • 4) Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
  • 5) Aston Martin DBS
  • 6) Bentley Continental GT
  • 7) Bentley Continental GTC
  • 8) Aston Martin V8 Vantage
  • 9) Rolls-Royce Ghost
  • 10) Aston Martin DB9
