The most frequently funded supercar in 2019 was the Italian Lamborghini Aventador LP 770-4 SVJ.

“Some Lamborghini models are indeed capable of keeping their value well for many years and continue to be in demand even under adverse financial conditions,” said Darren Selig, Executive Chairman of JBR Capita. “A striking example of this is the Lamborghini Veneno, which was sold for 6.8 million pounds at a Bonhams Bonmont auction in Switzerland in September this year.”

  “One significant trend we are seeing this year is that prestigious electric cars like the Tesla Model S, X and 3 are starting to gain momentum in terms of popularity,” he added. “Of course, we get more requests for financing electric vehicles – with this trend, of course, it looks like it will continue until 2020 and beyond.”
