Ten Most Expensive Cars to Insure

It feels pretty good to own a new sports car or luxury sedan, but those vehicles don’t come cheap. Even after the purchase price, you need to take into account the cost of insurance every year, and that can add up.

An annual study from found the ten most expensive vehicles in the US to insure, and the data showed that things get pricey if you want to combine the ultimate in comfort and performance. To compile the list, the company looks at quotes from Allstate, Farmers, Geico, Nationwide, Progressive and State Farm for 10 ZIP codes per state. It includes over 2,300 models but doesn’t have enough info for some exotics.

The study bases the rates on full coverage for a single 40-year-old male with a clean record, good credit, and 12-mile daily commute. The policy includes $100,000 for injury liability for one person, $300,000 for all injuries, $50,000 for property damage in an accident, a $500 deductible for collisions, and uninsured motorist coverage.
