“In line with the new Fast and Furious movie this year, we wanted to look at what sports cars are the most popular around the world, and also how this differs by country. We’re not surprised about the Ford Mustang coming out on top, but maybe more surprised by the BMW i8 being 35 countries’ favourite. This is what makes these pieces of research so great – you can never predict the results!”
