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.

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!

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

You might be too young for them though.

Hi,
Did you managed to get a quotation from ourselves at all?

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?

Tom
