Top 10 cars driven by Premier League players

range-rover-sport1. RANGE ROVER SPORT

This year has seen universal love for the daddy of all SUVs. It’s fast, it’s full of tricks, it looks awesome – and it was made here in Blighty. A worthy winner!

2. PORSCHE CAYENNE

For the second year, the surly SUV pips its road-hogging rival to second spot. Could it be the speed of the Turbo that the Prem stars love? Whatever it is, it’s still the most popular Porsche ever!

audi-q73. AUDI Q7

The sporty R8 got a sound showing further up the top ten, but if it’s German muscle the Prem’s finest are after, the Q7 wins it. Granted, the Cayenne literally gives it a run for its money, but some argue this is the better looking of the two.
Drivers include: Kieran Gibbs, Bacary Sagna (both Arsenal); Fernando Torres (Chelsea); Luis Nani, Rio Ferdinand (both Man United); Steven Nzonzi (Stoke City); Phil Bardsley (Sunderland); Mousa Dembele, Emmanuel Adebayor (both Tottenham Hotspur) Chris Brunt (West Brom)

audi-a89. AUDI R8

Last year’s number five may have dropped a few places as the SUVs continue to muscle in on the top ten, but the slick style and super six-speed gearbox means it still makes all the right (gleefully grunty) noises for the boys.
