JBR Capital reveals the most financed supercars of the past year

1y ago

You know, rich people don't just rock up to luxury car showrooms with a briefcase full of money to buy the latest, most expensive exotica - well actually some do - but most need finance just like you and me. JBR Capital specialises in high-end vehicle financing and has revealed a few interesting trends from 2019.

The average value of a car financed by them is £96,000. The most popular choices with the high-rollers are still - and somewhat unimaginatively - Porsches. From efficient and German, to sexy and Italian, nonetheless Ferrari accounts for 34% of all pay-outs on supercars valued at over £250,000.

The most frequently financed single supercar this year however, was the Lamborghini Aventador LP 770-4 SVJ, a limited edition model, with a '63' variant of which only 63 examples were made to mark the famed manufacturer's founding year of 1963.

They're not always new cars as the average age of the cars financed were 13 years-old, and the most popular brands came from Germany, Britain and Italy. The largest number of luxury cars financed in the UK were for customers based London and the South East at 39%.

Darren Selig, Executive Chairman at JBR Capital, said, “Some limited edition Lamborghinis do have the ability to hold their value well, and continue to be in demand, even in unfavourable financial climates. A prime example of this being the sale of a Lamborghini Veneno for £6.8 million at the Bonhams Bonmont auction, in Switzerland, this September.

“One significant trend we have seen this year is that prestige vehicles such as the Tesla Model S, X and the new Model 3 are starting to gather pace in terms of popularity. We have certainly been getting more enquiries with regards to the financing of electric vehicles."

If you could finance a supercar, which one would it be?

  • Financing a rapidly depreciating asset is never a good idea. Unless you plan on a large initial down payment, you will owe more than your car is worth pretty quickly, which can be a problem if you have to resell before your payments are complete.

  • I guess I’m old fashioned but I still prefer the old approach of saving up for something until you can actually afford it. With some exceptions like a house I guess. The problem with financing is you have to pay interest plus a huge lump sum at the end to keep the car, there’s no getting round the price tag lol (also the ending deposit is usually more than value of the car which is ridiculous). And what happens if you lose your job or your business fails, etc.... now you’re in debt and you lose your car.

    I guess it’s good for people who want to change cars every year or so, but otherwise it’s pointless.

    • You're talking about a PCP plan there, which is basically a 3 year lease for a car whereby you trade it in after those 3 years for a brand new model, this is finance that has no final payment and at the end you own the car, PCP you never own the car

  • The 3F rule states: If it Floats, Flies or Fastly depreciates. RENT it.
