Leading automotive finance provider, JBR Capital, has released the first edition of a new quarterly Luxury Car Report, providing unprecedented, exclusive, in-depth insight into the UK’s pre-owned supercar and luxury car sector. The report reveals the most popular vehicles financed in the UK, actual sold, rather than advertised, prices and provides a unique overview of the changing demographics of luxury automotive customers.

Below the Porsche 911, the next five positions in the top ten most financed models are all SUVs – Land Rover Defender; Range Rover Sport; Range Rover; Mercedes-Benz G-Class AMG and Lamborghini Urus. The average luxury car sold price in 2023 is £105,000 with the average loan advanced to a JBR Capital customers being 80% which has remained consistently high over the past 3 years.

There is also significant growth in the 20 – 34-year-old age bracket, which now accounts for 31 per cent of JBR Capital’s customer base. The report also reveals the most popular vehicles financed by soccer stars, with the Range Rover Sport, Audi Q8 and Lamborghini Urus proving the top three favourites with professional football players.
