“We like to think we know cars pretty well, but with gamer Brits spending on average 6.76* hours a week playing video games we realised we didn’t actually know much about the virtual cars people were behind the wheel of. We had expectations that the most common video game cars would be over-the-top supercars or indestructible 4x4s, so it was quite a surprise to see that it was actually the classic Volkswagen Beetle that was the top model. The good news is that if gamers grow attached to their virtual ‘bug,’ the VW Beetle is a model that can be snapped up fairly easily in real life – so gamers could recreate their virtual driving experiences with relative ease,” Carwow’s Consumer Expert Vix Leyton said.  Read the full research and see the full top 50.
