Cambridgeshire UK’s classy car capital

Ely in Cambridge has been found to be the classy car capital of the UK.

A new analysis has found that Cambridgeshire is the area where the most expensive cars are being advertised on consumer car selling service Wizzle.co.uk

The average price of a car in that county is £36,358, which is about twice as much as surrounding regions Norfolk, Suffolk, and Lincolnshire.

In contrast, the cheapest cars are being sold in the Welsh valleys, with cars advertised in Rhondda Cynon Taf often selling for under £1,000.

Wizzle founder Sébastien Duval said, ‘We decided to analyse the values of cars advertised around the country when somebody uploaded details of their Lamborghini Gallardo to sell. We wanted to test our assumption that the capital would be where all the best cars are offered. So it came as a surprise to find that Cambridgeshire was where the most expensive vehicles are being sold on Wizzle.

‘Despite the appearance of a Lamborghini on our site, London actually falls somewhere in the middle of our national car values range, some way behind places like Hampshire, Gloucester, Shropshire and even the Isle of Wight. In fact, London doesn’t even make the top ten in terms of posh cars on sale.

‘On the other side of the coin it seems to be Scotland and Wales where the cheaper cars tend to be most commonly offered, with the cheapest being in the valleys of South Wales. Interestingly that also coincides with our finding that fewer cars in general are being offered for a cash purchase in Scotland and Wales too.’

The towns or regions with the most expensive cars for sale on Wizzle are Ely, Cambridgeshire; East Hampshire; Isle of Wight; Torbay, Devon; Dacorum, Hertfordshire; Gloucester; Chiltern, Buckinghamshire; Castle Point, Essex; Telford & Wrekin, Shropshire; and Sandwell, West Midlands.

Meanwhile, the towns or regions with the least expensive cars for sale on Wizzle are Rhondda Cynon Taf, South Wales; Babergh, Suffolk; Wellingborough, Northamptonshire; Wokingham, Berkshire; West Lothian, Scotland; Hambleton, North Yorkshire; Bassetlaw, North Nottinghamshire; Brighton & Hove, East Sussex; Wakefield, West Yorkshire; and West Norfolk, Norfolk.
