McLaren Beats Ferrari and Lamborghini to Top UK’s Most In-Demand Luxury Car List
British-made luxury cars rank as the most popular in 2018, according to JBR Capital, one of the UK’s biggest money-lenders dedicated to high-end vehicles.
Four of the top 10 most financed cars by JBR Capital so far this year are made in Britain, ahead of exotic supercar rivals from Germany, Italy and Japan.
The 204 mph McLaren 570S, built at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, is the most popular luxury high-performance model that JBR Capital has provided a loan for in 2018.
And it gets better for McLaren – the new award-winning 720S also makes it into the top ten list, beating both Ferrari and Lamborghini in the process.
The Range Rover Vogue, produced at Land Rover’s plant in Solihull, was ranked second in the luxury loan league table and costs significantly less than the McLaren, at just under £1,000 a month over the same period.
The Bentley Continental GT, hand-finished at the factory in Crewe, also appeared in the top 10 alongside McLaren’s 720S.
Britain’s four models were enough to see off cars from Germany (three), Italy (two) and Japan (one) in the luxury competition.
“Britain may not have won the World Cup this summer, but it’s on top of the automotive world. The ‘Made in Britain’ tag is still highly sought-after among our high net worth clients, whether that’s for supercars or luxury SUVs,” reckons Darren Selig, executive chairman at JBR Capital.
“While you might expect wealthy owners to rush to Ferrari and Lamborghini dealers, it’s actually McLaren and Land Rover where we’ve had the most demand for finance packages so far this year,” he adds.
