If you drive an old jalopy that cost you next to nothing then you are probably not overly bothered about if the insurance(or as the Danes say forsikring) you have will pay out for your own vehicle. You want to know that you are covered against damage to others, obviously. But as far as you’re concerned, if your car is stolen or broken; then, fair enough; it’s time to buy a new one. For all you care, the policy could be written on the back of a napkin. However, there are some vehicles around that you want to make sure are covered by the best car insurances around, as if you lose some of these you might not be able to replace them.
Let’s start with new cars that are rolling off the production line as we speak and the world’s most expensive is the Maybach Exelero, which weighs in at a whopping 8 million US dollars. Now that might just be the debt level of a small country so what do you get for you money? Imagine a car that tips the scales at 2.6 tons; goes from standing to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds and tops out at over 218 mph and you see what all that money can buy. Whether any of the companies that offer car insurances (it’s interesting that the Danish term is bilforsikringer) would be interested in offering cover for this vehicle is debatable, there are only going to be 10 made so you’re probably too late to buy one anyway.
After the Maybach, the 2.6 million US price tag on the Bugatti Veyron Supersport, seems like a snip. This boasts an 8 liter VW engine that powers the thing up to over 267 mph and that makes it the fastest road car around. Not only that, but the Bugatti is pretty luxurious as well, especially for a supercar. Try getting any fully comp car insurances for this and you might be on the telephone for some time.
However, it isn’t new cars that are the most expensive to buy as bidding wars take place all around the world for cars that boast a bit of history. In 2011 the 1957 Ferrari Testarossa Prototype sold at auction for a cool 16.39 million US dollars. That is more than some soccer teams pay for a striker. So if you have money, why not spend it? There must have been some nervous conversations in the offices of companies that offer car insurances when this guy tapped his details into the online form. Having said all that, this car is probably one of the finest ever built with a racing history to challenge any other and looks that would definitely send Wayne Rooney home with his tail between his legs.
So next time you are sputtering along in your clapped out banger spare a thought for those in their multimillion dollar wonder wagons; they might be a bit more comfortable than you are, but trying to organize car insurances for their rides is almost impossible.
