September is truly the month for cars! Not only has the Ford Focus Mk1 been deemed Brits’ most favourite car of the past 25 years*, but new car registration plates are being released - as well as the Porsche 911 reaching the grand old age of 50! With this truly car-focused month ahead of us, online car finance specialist Carfinance247.co.uk has revisited some of its own research to reveal information an average motorist may not have known ...

  •     41% of Brits have owned a car manufactured by Ford and is still a firm favourite with 17% of us;
  •     if money were no object, then the iconic Aston Martin is still Joe Public’s dream car;
  •     the Mini was voted as the least favourite car;
  •     Suschesky Val in Moscow has the dubious honour of being the most congested road in the world. The average traffic jam in 2007 lasted almost 40 days;
  •     29% of all cars sold by Car Finance 247 are black;
  •      in March 2013, 4 out of 5 people planning to get a newer car were looking for a used vehicle.

Emily Henshall, Marketing Manager, Car Finance 247 says: “It is interesting to see two icons of the motoring industry sharing headlines this September. That said, I think most people will look for a used Ford rather than a Porsche, but we can all still dream.”
