The Range Rover Evoque has been revealed as the most popular car among Premier League footballers.
A new study from JBR Capital found the compact SUV, costing from £30,000, beat supercars like the Lamborghini Aventador and Bentley Continental GT.
With enormous means at their disposal, it won’t come as a surprise to learn 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.
The top 10 most popular cars from Premier League footballers are:
- 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
The study also found that footballers prefer to refinance for a new car at the end of their term, rather than pay the final balloon payment.
Darren Selig, CEO and Co-Founder at JBR Capital, explained: “The highest-earning 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.”
