You could be living sports car dream
Finance key to unlocking dream of owning a sports car, says Simon Gray, managing director of Credo Asset Finance.
Well, they were two sunny and hot May bank holidays! I saw many a convertible with the top down and happy smiling faces enjoying the experience – without wearing a woolly hat or having the heating on full blast!
This is definitely the perfect weather and driving conditions for me. Personally, I have always craved something sporty and stylish. For me, the right car can look fast even when it’s standing still.
So, are you looking for something that you dreamed of in your teens? It may be a car that comes only in racing green or a spectacular, bright red, something you need to limbo dance to get into or something that flies from 0-60mph in four to five seconds which, coincidently, may also be the number of miles you get to the gallon!
Owning a sports car doesn’t always have to be a drain on your finances, as the resale value is very important. We know all cars depreciate and lose value quickly, but many sports cars actually have better resale values than the average saloon or pick-up truck. Because of their sleek design, and because fewer are usually made, they have a greater chance of holding their value or becoming a classic.
I have been fortunate enough to own a few over the years, but I couldn’t have achieved my dream without the flexibility of finance.
These last couple of years I have seen Credo grow and expand with the rise of more sports and classic cars being financed than ever before – a quick look at our social media will show some of the stunning cars we’ve arranged finance for. I am thrilled to see them out on the road.
This is why I have launched a new initiative this year and delved into my other love, the world of motorsport. Credo has sponsored the coveted and well-respected MINI Challenge.
It is THE championship for the new MINI in the UK and has always enjoyed great grids, colourful cars and close racing. Over the years the MINI Challenge has built a reputation for affordability, fairness and fun, building on the iconic MINI brand. This has been a real thrill for me and, knowing that I can finance racing cars, equipment and many other areas of this sport, gives me great pride.
So if you have a dream of owning a sports car, but don’t know how, why not give Credo a call and speak to one of our experts. It may be cheaper than you think, and could end up being a good investment as well as fun to drive!
