Top five cars owned by Premiership footballers

There are approximately 580 players currently playing in the Premier League, with the average person earning about £2.4 million a year in club wages.

There’s no doubt that the average wage (at around £46,153,000 a week before tax), can bag you a hefty tonne of toys and goodies.

But what kind of wheels do premiership footballers prefer?

Take a look at the top five most popular cars owned by Premiership footballers below:

5 – Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

A sizzler of the stage, the Ferrari F12 will set back the average footballer around £240,000, but it has been deemed as the most road-going Ferrari so far.

Kicking out an impressive 8,700rpm, the car can achieve 0-62mph in just 3.1 seconds.

Although its fuel consumption sits at a thirsty 18.8mpg, it’s likely that your average sportsman won’t be worrying too much about fuel costs.

4 – Bentley Continental GT


The bestselling model in the history of Bentley, there really is little surprise to find the Bentley Continental GT on this list.

Possibly a vehicle for a more family orientated footballer, the Bentley Continental GT is famed for its easy, near-silent, and high-comfort drive.

Although slightly slower than the Ferrari F12, the ‘basic’ V8 still manages 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds, while the W12 Speed does it in 4.2 seconds.

We’d be kidding ourselves if we thought that the Bentley Continental GT was supposed to be about speed and power (which it has both of), because at the end of the day, it’s focus is on world-class quality and comfort.

And it is in both these areas where it excels, as the cabin is lavished in leather while the driving display has been cited as one of the most beautiful on the road.

3 – Mercedes-Benz G6 GLE Coupe

A pleasant sight on any road, the Mercedes G6 GLE coupe will set a footballer (or anyone for that matter) about £60,000 — roughly two weeks wages or so.

With a three-litre petrol engine, the V6 Bi-Turbo has been enhanced to 460Bhp, making it a fierce adversary on the school run.

The vehicle has is regarded as one of the most finished and considered SUVs on the road and has been happily compared to the Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover Sport.

Critics argue that the Mercedes might be a bit too expensive however, as the above mentioned cars can delivery slightly in regards to both performance and efficiency.

2 – Lamborghini Aventador


Definitely one of the most beautiful cars on the planet, the Lamborghini Aventador broke records after selling 5,503 units in five years.

Packed with no less than 700bhp, the vehicle hits the 62mph mark in just 2.9 seconds and can break 124 in 8.8 seconds.

With a top speed of 217mph, which is faster than the take-off speed of your typical jetliner, this beautiful feat of engineering will set a Premiership footballer back around £260,000.

On the inside the car retains its beauty, despite being a tad confined, and its seats have been criticised for being little uncomfortable, but the layout is world class and exactly what you’d expect from such a brand.

1 – Range Rover Evoque


By far the cheapest on the list, the Range Rover Evoque is actually the most popular car owned by Premiership footballers and can be bought by the average player with less than a week’s wages.

Starting at £30,000 the Range Rover Evoque is one of the most critically acclaimed vehicles on British roads with Range Rover enjoying design tips from Victoria Beckham.

Reaching 62mph in 7.1 seconds, it is the slowest car on this list, but like the Bentley Continental, this car doesn’t exist for acceleration.

With designers like Victoria Beckham on hand you can imagine that the interior hits the spot, and it does. Outstanding build quality is mentioned in practically every review and finishes and gloss detailing really sets it apart from its peers.
