Study: Men biologically driven to own fast cars

If you've ever wondered why many men seem to be attracted to expensive sports cars, the authors of a new Canadian study think they have some answers.

It's because the cars are sleek, shiny, sexy and go really fast.

A new study from Concordia University in Canada suggests that a man's drive to own a fast car is innate and physiological.

Thirty-nine young men drove a fancy fast car and then an older family-type car.

Then their saliva and hormone levels were tested.

"Just put a guy in a Porsche and his t levels shoot up," said Concordia University's Gad Saad.

Men were also tested driving in front of women and on a street where no one was watching them and it made no difference.

Their hormone levels remained high in the sports car.
