Is it possible to tell an adulterer by the vehicle they drive? IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 2500 of its members, asking them which brand of car they are currently driving.
Volkswagen wins the crown with 22%, as the top cheating car driven by men in the UK. It comes as no surprise, as Volkswagen, based in Wolfsburg, Germany, announce record sales for last year.
Mercedes is the number one car driven by affair seeking women (20%).
BMW comes in second for both men and women, with 18% and 17% respectively.
The car least driven by cheating men and women is the Fiat, with only 0.2% combined.
Flashy cars and sex appeal have always gone well together, with research even indicating having a nice car can change you from a 4/10 to an 8/10, with 58% of women claiming a man’s car affects his dateability.*
Car manufacturers are aware of this and will often sexualise their adverts, with Mercedes previously advertising their fleet of cars, in a now banned, infidelity advert.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Jessica Leoni said “The car you drive speaks volumes about your personality. The results indicate that adulterers tend to be affluent and successful, willing to invest in good quality. This attitude extends to our drivers marital lives, where having an affair is a luxury for men and women who are unwilling to settle for mediocrity.
The top three automobiles for both men and women are from German manufacturers, designed for their comfort, style and practicality.
German cars have always dominated the market, and have especially been glamorised recently by hip hop artists in songs such as German by artist EO, or Meridan Dan’s – German Whip. This notoriety of German cars in the charts could also lend a hand at their popularity. After all, adulterers want the best of the best – best car, spouse, lover…and why not?”
