Research proves footballers to be refreshingly predictable

Oracle Finance; you’ll know them if you’ve ever searched for a high-end car on AutoTrader and found their non-ads clogging up the listings, have published details of the most popular car choices from its footballing clients.


Based on the last five years of data, the numbers represent the most popular cars financed by footballers through Oracle’s services. Predictably, in the same week we’ve covered the new Range Rover Sport SVR and its questionable image, there’s no shocks at the top:

1st – Range Rover
2014 Range Rover
Anybody that surprised? No, didn’t think so.

2nd – Bentley Continental GT

Yeah, this survey seems pretty accurate already.

3rd – Range Rover Sport
Range Rover Sport 001
Again, it’s nice to see stereotypes actually proven to be true for once.

4th – Audi Q7
2014 Audi Q7
It’s been around for a few years, but the biggest Audi is still popular it seems.

5th – BMW X5
To be honest, we’re more surprised it’s not the X6 actually.

6th – Porsche Cayenne
Porsche Cayenne GTS
Another German über-SUV. Questionable image probably not helped by this survey.

7th – Lamborghini Gallardo

Another fairly old contender – expect to see the Hurácan here in a few years.

8th – Ferrari 458

Ferrari 458 Spider
We didn’t really Maranello’s baby to be so high on the list. But it is.

9th – Maserati GranTurismo

A Maserati is, relatively, subtle in this company.

10th – Aston Martin DB9

If you’re already living out a childhood fantasy by making a living from football, you might as well pretend to be James Bond too.

In a world of constant change and unpredictability, it’s actually rather refreshing to know that some things are exactly as we perceive them to be. Any glaring omissions or surprises? Well, we thought Mercedes-Benz might make an appearance with the G-Wagen, and there’s a lack of American bling that you might expect. But no, otherwise it’s how you would believe a football training ground car park would look.

Jaguar Land Rover must be rubbing their hands in glee, whilst adding an extra £10,000 onto the price of the Range Rover Sport SVR.
