A recent set of research carried out by Oracle Finance has revealed that there is a big divide between the North of the UK and the South when it comes to spending money on sports and luxury car vehicles. The research has found that the number of customers buying these vehicles in the South is double the number of what the North of the UK is selling. Forty eight percent of customers buying these vehicles were reported for the South whilst the North was at just twenty percent.
The majority of sports car sales for the North were reported in Cheshire,Lancashire and Yorkshire. However the vast increase on sales in the South were reported to come from London,Middlesex,Essex,Berkshire and Surrey. Very low rates of these purchases were made in Scotland,Wales and Northern Ireland.

A tally revealed that one in five decided to make their way over to the website rather than using another source. 2,200 people were surveyed in the research and 42 percent chose the companies websites rather than a choice of nineteen other sources. Companies brochures were voted second in the research as a source when deciding which car to buy.
