Footballers favour Chelsea tractors

Top class footballers favour Chelsea tractor style vehicles, research suggests

Footballers may favour certain formations on the field but when it comes to cars they go for 4x4s.

For the Range Rover has come out top as the vehicle of choice for Premier League players, according to Oracle Finance.

The Range Rover Sport was third in the list, with the Bentley Continental GT in second place and the Audi Q7 fourth.

In fifth place was the BMW X5, with the Porsche Cayenne sixth, the Lamborghini Gallardo seventh, the Ferrari 458 eighth, the Maserati GranTurismo ninth and the Aston Martin DB9 in 10th place.

Oracle Finance managing director Peter Brook said: "We looked back at our records over the last five years to come up with this list and weren't surprised the Range Rover was top.

"Our football clients like their cars to be luxurious with high-up driving positions, which is why they prefer 4x4s to out-and-out supercars."

This was the top 10:

1. Range Rover

2. Bentley Continental GT

3. Range Rover Sport

4. Audi Q7

5. BMW X5

6. Porsche Cayenne

7. Lamborghini Gallardo

8. Ferrari 458
