UK’s Top 10 Supercars of 2017 Revealed
As 2017 comes to a close, JBR Capital – a provider of high end vehicle finance – has revealed its top 10 supercars of the year.
These are the UK’s most popular luxury high-performance models that London-headquartered JBR Capital says it has provided loans on over the last 12 months:
- Bentley Continental GT
- McLaren 570S
- Ferrari 458
- Audi R8
- Lamborghini Gallardo
- Tesla Model S
- Aston Martin V8 Vantage
- Porsche 911 GT3
- Maserati GranTurismo S
- Mercedes SLS AMG
Loans have been frequently requested for the second-generation Bentley Continental GT, making it JBR Capital’s outright winner.
“Bentley’s Continental GT is not new but has remained timeless, and incremental updates have kept it fresh,” says JBR Capital. “As the highly anticipated third-generation Continental GT is due out in 2018, it is credit to the British manufacturer that the current model continues to sell so well.”
Coming second – and beating Ferrari in the process – is another British model, namely, the McLaren 570S.
“The most attainable McLaren to date, the 570S has proven enormously popular with our clients this year. From £145,000, it punches well above its weight in the supercar sector, delivering bags of performance at a cost significantly below many rivals,” says Darren Selig, executive chairman at JBR Capital. “With a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed just shy of 204 mph, some might think it’s ‘too much’ car for them, but the 570S is surprisingly mild-mannered.”
The only other British mark to make it into the top 10 is Aston Martin, with its V8 Vantage.
“It came as no surprise to see an Aston Martin on our list and the V8 Vantage is our most financed model,” says Selig. “The 4.7 litre V8 delivers 430 bhp and powers the beautiful coupe from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds – but it’s the sporty feel and trademark looks (not to mention everyday practicality) that make this car such a hit with our clients.”
