New figures from JBR Capital show Ferrari and Porsche are the most-financed supercar brands in London. Indeed, they have been for more than a year.
It should come as no surprise that London is the supercar capital of the UK. That is, along with being the actual capital of the UK. Following Ferrari and Porsche in London’s most-financed were Audi, Bentley and Lamborghini.
If you raised your eyebrow at Audi, remember the R8 is a popular choice in this sector. It’s interesting that McLaren and Aston Martin don’t feature in the top five, however.
“Porsche and Ferrari consistently come top of the list in terms of the number of supercars we finance in London, and that includes Greater London,” said Darren Selig of JBR Capital
“Recent examples that JBR Capital has funded include some of the highest value hypercars of these popular marques including a £2.5m Ferrari La Ferrari and a £1.2m Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach.
“The entire five-year production cycle allocation of the £250,000 Ferrari 812 Superfast was sold out shortly after launching mid-2017, followed by all of the open-top Ferrari Monza SP1 & SP2 limited production – estimated to be less than 500 units – being pre-sold to existing Ferrari owners.
“Since the start of 2019 Lamborghini customers have started taking delivery of the rip-roaring new Lamborghini Aventador LP 770-4 SVJ and it has been a hot favourite for London finance customers.”
Even those in the market for the most elite six- and seven-figure hypercars don’t escape the need for finance, it seems.
