Range Rover Sport Named Footballers’ Favourite Drive

Tue 28th May 2019

New data has revealed that five-litre V8 powered Range Rover Sport SVR is the favoured mode of transport of the modern day footballer.

While footballers catch the headlines for their glamorous lifestyles of millionaires mansions, fast cars, exotic holidays and extravagant purchases it may come as a surprise to learn that many of the game’s elite players actually pay for their cars on finance.

While a select few may be able to buy a top of the range supercar with a week’s wages, the majority of footballers still have to budget for their finances and many turn to high-end vehicle financiers to ensure they get the car they want at an affordable rate.

JBR Capital is one of the leaders in this field and they have revealed the most popular options for the footballers on their books. It’s no surprise to find the Range Rover sitting at the top of the list, the so-called ‘Chelsea Tractor’ has long been popular in club car parks across the UK for a number of years. The top ten list makes interesting reading still, with Bentleys, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maseratis all proving popular alongside some of the more ‘practical’ Mercedes and Audis.

“Footballers are undoubtedly the most frequent clients of ours out of all the sports professionals we speak to that seek high-end vehicle finance,” said JBR Capital’s Darren Selig.

“It’s not surprising that footballers haven’t greatly changed their taste in cars over the last few years, but it is interesting that in terms of marques, Jeep, Porsche and McLaren have been replaced in the top 10 by Audi, Maserati and Ford.”
