Premier League stars prefer 4x4 formation
THE Range Rover is the most popular car with Premier League footballers, according to new research from broker Oracle Finance.
Managing director Peter Brook said: “We looked back at our records over the last five years to come up with this list and weren’t surprised the Range Rover was top.
“We can’t reveal which footballers use our services because of client confidentiality, but we work with some of the biggest names in the footballing world and have helped hundreds of players, managers and agents fund their dream cars over the years.”
The top 10 most popular footballers’ cars funded by Oracle Finance are:
1 Range Rover
2 Bentley Continental GT
3 Range Rover Sport
4 Audi Q7
5 BMW X5
6 Porsche Cayenne
7 Lamborghini Gallardo
8 Ferrari 458
9 Maserati Gran Turismo
10 Aston Martin DB9
Mr Brook said: “Bentley was extremely close to taking the number one spot in our Premiership poll with the GT, but it’s clear SUVs are a favourite with footballers.
“What’s clear from our list is that SUVs are very popular. Our football clients like their cars to be luxurious with high-up driving positions, which is why they prefer 4x4s to out-and-out supercars. Few cars offer all that like a full-fat Range Rover.”
