Which Ride? Infographic

Over the past few years, there’s been a lot of fuss over fictional characters. Stephenie Meyer created the romantic and mysterious Edward Cullen in her hit series, Twilight. The character caused quite a stir, creating diehard fan clubs, passionate online communities and an obsession with vampires. This popularity has been duplicated with author E.L. James’s 50 Shades of Grey, with fictional rich playboy Christian Grey as the leading man. We were interested about the characters for one reason: they drive incredible cars.

With the constant comparisons between the two characters, we of course, compared their vehicles. The fictional Edward Cullen drives a Volvo, (a currently outdated model), while Christian Grey drives a sleek new Audi R8 Spyder. While both are innovative, sophisticated vehicles anyone would love to drive, we want to know, which one is better?

Well, you tell us! We did a side by side comparison of the two cars, substituting the outdated Volvo with the new 2013 Volvo C30 T5. Vote for your favorite on our ‘Which Ride’ Facebook poll!
