The Top 10 Cars Bought by Premier League Footballers Revealed
They may earn an average salary of £2.4m a year but the most popular car for a premiership footballer is the Range Rover Evoque, a compact SUV which costs from around £30,000.
That’s according to a new list compiled by JBR Capital, a London-based car finance company that has a number of big-name premiership players on its roster. It has put together a top 10 of the most popular cars purchased on finance by premiership players over the last two years.
While the relatively affordable Evoque finishes in first place, the top 10 shows that players don’t hold back when it comes to filling their garages with dream machines, with the rest of the line-up chock full of supercars, luxury cars and even bespoke creations from aftermarket coachbuilders and tuning companies:
- Range Rover Evoque
- Lamborghini Aventador
- Mercedes-Benz Onyx G6 GLE Coupe
- Bentley Continental GT
- Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
- Lamborghini Huracan
- Jeep Wrangler Kahn Sahara
- Porsche 911 GTS
- Bentley Bentayga
- McLaren 675LT Spider
With enormous means at their disposal, it won’t come as a surprise to learn that JBR Capital found that players each own several cars on the list – such as an Evoque and an Aventador – but what will raise eyebrows is that finance is an increasingly important way to fund purchases.
Darren Selig, CEO and co-founder at JBR Capital, explains: “The highest-earning premiership players can bring in six-figure salaries each week and could buy many of the cars on this list easily without finance, but like regular motorists, it pays to be smart and they are increasingly savvy in their financial affairs.
“Footballers want the monthly cost of the loan to be as low as possible, so they can remain flexible. They would rather spend large sums on investments such as property, and do not want to over-extend their budget with outright purchases. They also generally run finance deals from 2 to 4 years, as these allow them the most flexibility.”
