We Find UK Footballers’ Favourite Cars
- Range Rover tops list of most-funded luxury cars for sports stars
- Premiership players look for luxury over speed
- Off-roaders top list of most popular footballers’ cars
The Range Rover is officially the most popular car with Premiership footballers, according to research by a supercar finance company.
Luxury car finance broker Oracle Finance dug deep into its records at the beginning of the 2014 Premiership season to reveal the top 10 most popular cars with football stars.
Believe it or not, a large number of Premiership players fund their cars using finance companies because it is the most tax-efficient way of buying supercars – giving the broker a unique insight into the buying habits of the super-rich sports stars.
Oracle Finance managing director Peter Brook said: “We looked back at our records over the last five years to come up with this list and weren’t surprised the Range Rover was top.
“We can’t reveal which footballers use our services because of client confidentiality, but we work with some of the biggest names in the footballing world and have helped hundreds of players, managers and agents fund their dream cars over the years.”
The top 10 most popular footballers’ cars funded by the company looks like this:
Car Number Financed
1 Range Rover 28
2 Bentley Continental GT 26
3 Range Rover Sport 24
4 Audi Q7 21
5 BMW X5 18
6 Porsche Cayenne 16
7 Lamborghini Gallardo 13
8 Ferrari 458 8
9 Maserati Gran Turismo 4
10 Aston Martin DB9 3
Mr Brook said: “Bentley was extremely close to taking the number one spot in our Premiership poll with the GT, but it’s clear SUVs are a favourite with footballers.
“What’s clear from our list is that 4x4s are very popular. Our football clients like their cars to be luxurious with high-up driving positions, which is why they prefer 4x4s pure supercars. Few cars offer all that like a full-fat Range Rover.”
