Cars that are very expensive to insure
When it comes to buying an expensive car, is isn't just the on-the-road price that has to be taken into consideration - chances are, your car is going to sit in a high road tax band and also cost a lot of money to insure. A lot is said about how hard it is for young drivers to get on the road, but for anybody who isn't a millionaire, it can be just as hard to buy an upper class of car even if you have a full time job.
Cars are expensive (unless it's used ford cars from the car people), but they are a luxury - and sometimes a necessity - that we must have.... so it's good to know some secrets to make your car last longer.
If you are considering buying an expensive car, here's the top 4 which are very expensive to insure.
1. Bugatti Veyron
With the Bugatti Veyron, car insurance comes with life insurance as standard. A quick quote comparison on Confused or any other price comparison website will not give you anything to go on in terms of insurance cost - simply, no regular insurance companies will touch you. Instead, you'll be needing to contact luxury car insurers. The average price for car insurance on a Bugatti Veyron is around £2,000 per month, based on a 30 year old male with 10 years no claims.
Go for the Veyron SuperSport, and you can safely add an extra £1k to that price.
2. Lamborghini Aventador
The Lamborghini Aventador is, possibly, the most stunning supercar on sale today - it makes all of the latest Ferrari's and Porsche efforts look very old fashioned. A direct replacement for the Murciélago, the Aventador will cost you £1,300 to insure per month, based on a 30 year old male with 10 years no claims.
When you consider that this car costs £201,000 to buy brand new, this is one of the most expensive cars for anybody's wallet.
3. Audi R8 V10
The Audi R8 is a fantastic car that's best served in V10 guise - it will go from 0 - 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 198 mph, which is very fast indeed. The insurance cost for an Audi R8 V10 is £1,300 per year, based on a 30 year old male with 10 years no claims.
So, even though the R8 V10 is a 'baby supercar', it's still devilishly expensive despite rolling in at a considerably lower on-the-road price than the Veyron or the Aventador.
4. Nissan GT-R
The Nissan GT-R is the best car on our list today in terms of pound for pound performance. You can pick up second hand GT-R's now for around £35k, which is not a lot of money for the blistering speed this car offers. To insure, the GT-R will cost a 30 year old male with 10 years no claims a rather modest £884.76 to insure PER YEAR - that's way, way cheaper than any of the cars above and if you tune it right, it will be way faster than any of them too (well, perhaps not the Veyron).
Please note that all of these insurance quotes were accurate at the time of research and are subject to change. You are welcome to try out quotes for yourself.
In the end we can't all afford high performance supercars ... but if you're looking for used cars in the UK then thecarpeople.co.uk is a good place to start.
