Many people will dream about owning a supercar, but for most, it will not be a realistic goal due to the astronomical cost of these vehicles. To examine what job one might need to afford one of these motors, Vehicle Contracts conducted a study based on TikTok user @itsdanielmac’s videos, in which he asks what supercar owners do for a living.
The study has revealed the most common occupation out of 155 of supercar owners. The price of these motors averaged at £204,736.
According to the study, a job in property is the most likely way you will be able to own a supercar.
“With an average car price of £202,180, an occupation in property is definitely one to consider for those looking to earn megabucks.
“With the most expensive car on the list priced at £1.65million, you’ll definitely want to be following in that millionaire’s footsteps with a job in real estate to get your hands on your very own Bugatti Chiron.”
24 percent of those interviewed by Daniel Mac working in real estate own either a McLaren or Ferrari and 14 percent own a Lamborghini.
One of those property workers who owns a £144,000 Ferrari California gave some advice for those looking for a lifestyle like his:
“Work in a business that you can learn enough to start your own business,” they said.
Starting one’s own company or working in technology are the joint-second most popular ways to make enough cash to splash out on the likes of a Lamborghini, McLaren, or Bentley.
“With the average cost of the car for those interviewed working in technology at £161,950, it could well be the industry to consider going into.”

54 percent of those working in technology explained they worked specifically in internet technology or cybersecurity.
The most popular car brand for those working in technology is a McLaren with over 23 percent driving one.
The average cost of a car for those entrepreneurs interviewed is £5,295 less than those working in technology at £156,655.
Vehicle Contracts found that 31 percent of those entrepreneurs surveyed by Daniel drive a Lamborghini.
In third position are those working in sales, healthcare and social media. Workers in healthcare have the highest average car price out of the three at £231,951.
Those in sales follow this with an average of £159,905 and then social media at £154,244.
The most popular cars in these industries were a Lamborghini for those working in sales, a McLaren for people in the healthcare sector and a Ferrari for those who work in social media, with each car being owned by 27 percent of people in their respective field.
With an average car price of £425,240, those working in music lead the way when it comes to the price of their supercars.
English record producer, Michael Blakey, has a net worth of £43million and owns a Ferrari F12 Novitec N-Largo worth £529,200.
Another interviewee of Daniel’s owns a £2.16million Bugatti Chiron – the world’s fastest car.
