With an average six-figure price tag, an exotic supercar can seem desperately out of reach. The reality is, however, that few people buy their expensive sports car outright, with most cars being delivered under some form of finance agreement.

This means your dream wheels could be more attainable than you first thought. You’ll need to be able to put down a deposit down up-front – around 10-20 per cent of the list price – and be able to budget for high priced servicing and consumables on top of monthly repayments, but with careful planning there’s no reason there couldn’t be a mid-engined racer on your driveway in no time.

We spoke to experts Peter Brooke and Damian Smith who advised on the best way to arrange suitable finance for your first supercar.
