- Prestige finance provider JBR Capital names the cars unveiled last week that generated the most enquiries from customers
- Established marques joined by insanely fast exotica from Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Croatia
- Most affordable of the top 10 can be owned for £1,500 a month – less than a mortgage and bills on a three-bedroom house
A 310mph hypercar built by an aristocratic Italian family and the successor to the supercar famously crashed last year by the Grand Tour’s Richard Hammond are among the most in-demand cars unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, according to JBR Capital.
The prestige finance provider has revealed the 10 cars for which it has received the most finance enquiries since the Geneva show opened a week ago.
And, while some of the top 10 will set you back nearly double the price of a rail season ticket between Cheltenham and London every month, others you can own for less than the monthly cost of a mortgage and household bills for a three-bedroom house.*
As well as established names like Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bugatti, the biggest interest has been in the Corbellati Missile, created by an Italian family better known for their jewels and fine art and the Rimac C Two, the electric supercar that replaces the Croatian brand’s Concept One, in which Hammond had a fiery crash during a rally.
Of the top 10 cars that JBR has already received enquiries for, the most expensive to finance is the Aston Martin Valkyrie GTR, which would require a £600,000 deposit and 48 monthly payments of £25,972 – nearly twice the £13,244 rail season ticket between Cheltenham and London.**
Meanwhile, the new Porsche GT3 RS can be yours for £1,561.61 a month over the same term, less than the £1,634 it costs to pay the mortgage and bills on a three-bedroom home.

JBR Capital Chief Operating Office, Stephen Halstead, said: “Clearly, the cars that generated the most interest from prospective buyers in Geneva are the most extreme, the most extraordinary that the show had to offer.
“It’s easy for them to seem like nothing more than mouth-watering but unattainable fantasy cars.
“These cars are never going to be cheap things to own but it may surprise people how little – in relative terms – they need to find per month in order for some cars this special to be actually within grasp.”
