“If you want something done, ask a busy person,” so said the 18th century US statesman Benjamin Franklin. Well, here at JBR Capital, we have just experienced our busiest month ever since the company was launched in 2015. In fact, it’s been so hectic that we launched a recruitment drive to help keep up with the increase in demand. And with new members of staff now on board, we are even better placed to help you achieve the car you have always dreamed of.
With lockdown finally easing and showrooms opening their doors again, the demand for financing prestige and performance cars has quite simply never been higher. We have seen a tsunami of requests for finance from customers, with more than £50 million worth of finance proposals come into the business within March, which is 15 per cent above our all-time record.
” The sales surge has been brought about by a combination of factors. Pent-up demand is an obvious one, plus people who are still fortunate enough to be doing well, having nothing else to spend their money on.”
There’s a huge desire to get back on the open road too and some fantastic products in the market.
It makes me wonder what it must have been like to work in the US automotive industry in the 1950s. Back then, every motorist was determined to celebrate a new era of peace and prosperity by driving a car sporting massive fins, yards of chrome and a V8 engine under the hood.
Times have certainly changed since gas cost 27 cents a dollar in the US. Now, along with all the internal combustion-engined cars we’ve helped finance, we see increased and sustained interest in electric vehicles. Porsche’s all-electric Taycan is now tremendously popular. Porsche also proved to be the most financed marque in March 2021, swiftly followed by brands such as Aston Martin Ferrari and McLaren.
However, we have been inundated with requests for finance across all brands. As the UK’s only independent finance lender dedicated solely to high-end vehicle finance, JBR Capital offers tailored finance options for classic, prestige racing and supercars. Your dream car doesn’t have to sit at the very pinnacle of the market. We lend anything from £25,000 upwards to help you fund your passion and get behind the wheel of the car you’ve set your heart on.
Perhaps you are still at that ‘decisions, decisions, decisions…’ stage? Day-dreaming, researching and searching is, of course, half the fun, but to help you focus your mind, we are taking a look at the top 10 most in-demand cars from our extensive network of introducers and clients. As buyers plan to make up for all those lost months of driving in summer 2021 and beyond, these are the hottest automotive tickets this spring.
When you decide, our dedicated staff are here to help you fund your passion.
