R8 Insurance

I am 23, currently driving an A5 and have one year no claims. I only passed my test about 13 months ago so obviously my stats are a red light for most insurance companies, especially where high powered cars are concerned.

The R8 I am looking at buying is a 2012 v10 manual model worth about 80k.

The best quote I have managed to get from a 'high street' insurer so far was just shy of 4000 with 1500 excess. Would I be able to get a better quote from someone more specialised?

Appreciate any advice

Sounds like a pretty good quote in all fairness; im sure a few quid could be saved via a specialist broker (maybe someone that deals with professional footballers) but i cant see it being that much less.

As a side note; great choice.

mate i know people your age and experience getting the same quotes for a 1.0 corsa

Thanks for the advice.

Are there any particular insurers you know of that might be able to help me out?

I would argue that I am less likely to wreck a valuable supercar than a corsa but I guess that's a topic for another discussion

yeah perhaps you could also tell them not to worry if somebody steals it as you wouldnt claim, you'd simply just buy another.

Ha, I wish!  

Didn't think of theft when reading your original post, I stand corrected

I'm surprised you got such a good quote? Who have you tried?

Have you tried the club sponsors?

Hahaha. Look everybody knows all they do is throw a calculator at the wall and multiply it by either the current temperature or the day of the month.

Today ive been trying to get a quote down from 700 on a 500 van for when my car is off the road.

Try Sky Insurance (a forum sponsor i think), i have been very pleased with price and service and recently moved to them!

The club sponsors being people like Adrian Flux?

Admiral, Diamond and elephant all gave similar quotes.

Sky, greenlight, a-plan are all brokers, so worth a shot.

You might be too young for them though.

Hi Dan,

I requested a quote on your website but it told me that I should call in instead. I am test driving one next week so if I decide to buy I will give you a call with the exact details of the car.

Is it likely that you will be able to offer cover?

You sound distinctly like a young chap who asked exactly the same question a year or two back who was dreaming about buying such a car. Turns out it was only that. Honestly, all the info you require is on google, you will have to process your information through each insurer to get a specific quote anyhow, so asking people here is not indicative of what sort of price you will get with the same insurer given your particulars will be different.

Ive been around long enough to know when someone of your age is honestly good for the money to buy a car like that, they do not come onto a public former asking / worrying about where to get it insured and the cost. You are BS ing / dreaming.
