We know you’re not looking for just any car, but the most noteworthy cars in their class. Regardless of who you hang with on the regular — the nerds, the jocks, the stoners, the theater kids — you’re bound to find the superlative car to make your friend group jealous. These are the stand-out characters to keep your eye on.

Biggest drama queen: Christian’s Alfa Romeo 4C 2015

This car can’t help it, the spotlight just follows her. But listen, if you want to get noticed for something good this time, hanging out with her is a legit way to go.

Most likely to be an alien: Nathanael’s Tesla Model X 2016

Dude, he’s weird and doesn’t function like anybody else. But he’s definitely onto something big and he’s not bad-looking, not in the least.

Best date to introduce to your parents: Cyrus’s Volvo C30 2008

He’s safe and reliable, but not without a little power and panache. Your parents might even let you stay out past midnight with this one.

Most likely to be the first woman president: Siarhei’s Buick Roadmaster 1996

You thought you’d seen the last of her in the 90s, but despite constant concerns about her health, she’s still trucking. With classic style and decades of experience on the road, this American wagon might be going to high places.

Prettiest eyes: Brian’s Volkswagen Beetle 1979

He was once embarrassed about those long lashes, but after he grew his hair out and started playing the guitar, they were clearly only a boon.

Most likely to become a superstar EDM DJ: Jessica’s Scion XB 2006

She’s always wearing headphones and trippy prints, and will never let anyone play un-remixed songs at parties. When she gets a residency in Las Vegas, you’ll want to be on the list.

Best celebrity look-alike

ALEXEY’S MERCEDES-BENZ G-CLASS 2008 AS NICKI MINAJ

She’s brash, versatile, powerful, and stylish AF. Who’d mess with this?

KSENIA’S PORSCHE MACAN 2015 AS GEORGE CLOONEY

He’ll look great in a tux for ever and ever. Need we say more?

Most likely to climb Mt. Everest with a baby bjorn: Sun’s Subaru XV Crosstrek 2013

He’s got all of the qualities of a great stay-at-home dad, except he’s got perpetual wanderlust. Even if his dreams are not domestic, he’s going to read to his kid every night.

Best vintage style that is actually new: Stephen’s Dodge Challenger 2013

His clothes may be new, but he’s always rocking that retro look and it does really nice things for his bone structure. The perk of new vintage? It doesn’t have years of other people’s smells trapped inside.

Most likely to adopt another cat: David’s Mercedes-Benz SL 380 1985

It’s because she has an old-fashioned sense of hospitality and a big heart, NOT BECAUSE SHE’S LONELY.
