Range Rover Evoque Beats Lambo, Ferrari As Most Popular Footballer’s Car In The UK

You would expect that professional UK football players (that’s what soccer is called in these parts of the globe) would prefer the latest exotic sports car for their commute to and from the practice and you would be right; but apparently they also love compact SUVs and more specifically the Range Rover Evoque.

The smallest Range Rover leads the Top 10 list with the most popular cars bought by Premiership football players, leaving much more expensive ones, like the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari F12 and Bentley Continental GT, behind.

The list was compiled by UK vehicle finance experts JBR Capital, who found out than other than the relatively affordable Range Rover Evoque, UK’s Premiership football players don’t hold back when it comes to buying a new car.

1. Range Rover Evoque
2. Lamborghini Aventador
3. Mercedes-Benz Onyx G6 GLE Coupe
4. Bentley Continental GT
5. Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
6. Lamborghini Huracan
7. Jeep Wrangler Kahn Sahara
8. Porsche 911 GTS
9. Bentley Bentayga
10. McLaren 675LT Spider

As you can see, the list contains all the usual suspects plus some models created by tuning companies, like the Mercedes-Benz Onyx G6 GLE Coupe and the Jeep Wrangler Kahn Sahara.

    > Mercedes-Benz Onyx G6 GLE Coupe

    WTF is that and why is it so popular?

    • Adrian

      Everyone thinks that Toyota Prius is one of the ugliest cars on earth. And Mercedes Benz said that “We can do better” and produced Mercedes-Benz Onyx G6 GLE Coupe.

  • Peyton

    I have trouble believing it. How long has the Bentayga even been on sale? And it’s the 9th most popular car amongst all professional UK footballers?

    And like 50% of the player’s parking lot is filled with Aventadors?…

    I suspect the Evoque will be for the “little woman”.

    Not surprising. I had one for two years. It was just as luxurious as my old RR Sport but much more nimble and able to traverse NYC streets. It also was easier to find parking garages that would accommodate it since it had the footprint of a midsized car. Even though the quality was horrendous, I enjoyed owning it. Aside from the Macan, there aren’t many small luxury SUV options available.

    But can it break into BMW’s dominance of the all-important Drug-Dealer demographic?

  • Bash

    I have a feeling that soon we will be seeing many articles and lists with the Velar is on top.
