Top Gear presenter Chris Evans

Top Gear presenter and Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans has seen turnover for his used car business soar from £9.7 million to £16.8 million.

The Daily Mirror has published details said to be taken from the accounts of Zimple Limited, the used car business he set up with wife Natasha in 2012.

But while turnover for the business has risen, according to the Mirror’s facts, profits fell from £1,979,167 to £1,584,691.

The Mirror reported that Chris was "pleased" with the performance over the year and is "confident of continued profitability as the company becomes more established”.

This year’s financial results for Zimple Limited are for the year ending March 31, 2015, so do not take into account the £1.3 million sales of seven of Evans’ cars at Bonhams' Goodwood Revival auction.

More than £8 million of cars, including a Ferrari LaFerrari, Ferrari 275 GTB/C Alloy, Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, Ferrari Daytona Spyder and Bentley Continental Fastback, are currently among Zimple Limited’s stock of vehicles.
