The dream cars for Britain's drivers are German marques, such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes, a motorists' survey has shown. About 300 car-owners, representing a range of occupations, regions and ages, were questioned for the poll, revealing a surprising variety of car preferences.

The survey, published this month by Critical Research Ltd, claims thatmost men choose Mercedes as their favourite car, whilst women preferred Audi or BMWs.

The choice of colour, however, which is said to reflect the personality of the driver, was unaffected by gender. One in five drivers picked blue as their colour of choice, with red and green also scoring highly. Under- 35s bucked the trend, with a clear preference for black. Louise Hancock
