When it comes to dream cars the most bragged about model on social media is, surprisingly, the Dodge Challenger.
Researchers for car rental comparison website StressFreeCarRental.com crunched the numbers to see which car brands and models were the most tagged with the hashtag #DreamCar on Instagram. They found the American muscle car took the title of the most bragged about motor on the social platform, ahead of European makers such as the Lamborghini, Porsche and Mercedes.
The top ten dream cars on Instagram (% of posts tagged #DreamCar) are:
- Dodge Challenger (22%)
- Lamborghini Aventador (21%)
- Mercedes G-Class (18%)
- Porsche GT3-RS (12%)
- Mercedes CLA AMG (10%)
- Bugatti Chiron (6%)
- Audi R8 (5%)
- Ford Mustang (4%)
Both the Nissan GT-R and the Volkswagen Golf R came in equal ninth with just two per cent of the tag.
The Dodge Challenger was tagged by more than a fifth of Instagram users, who posted about their dream car. The German manufacturer, Mercedes, took the title of most boasted about marque overall with two cars making the list.
But the American favourite is the car of choice for a host of stars such as singer Billie Eilish, legendary actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and rapper Snoop Dogg. Although the Dodge won the overall title of most tagged dream car it was one of only two US built motors to feature in the top ten.
Europe definitely produces more desirable cars than any other continent with seven of the top ten coming from European countries. While Japan has long enjoyed healthy car sales across the world, only one Japanese car featured in the top ten.
