Want to add a sports car to your garage but can’t seem to convince yourself or your significant other to allow it to happen? Here’s some good news: driving a sports car on a daily basis will “boost your sense of wellbeing and emotional fulfilment,” according to a study conducted by Ford.
In the study, Ford measured certain “buzz moments” during these activities: watching a Game of Thrones episode, kissing, dining, salsa dancing, watching a football game, shopping, riding a roller coaster and driving a sports car. During each session, the participants had their vitals recorded and each time a “buzz moment” was reached, it was recorded. When it came to the driving session, Ford modified a Focus RS that displays the driver’s emotions across the car’s exterior thanks to 200,000 LED lights. From concept to conception, the Buzz Car took 1,400 man-hours to create.
Results of the study are as follows:
|Activity||Buzz Moments *|
|Game of Thrones||1.5|
From the results, we can see that driving a sports car gives you just about as many buzz moments as if you were on a roller coaster!
