Just out of interest I was searching for insurance. I have 5+ years no claims, clean licence (fluke), tracker, cat 1 alarm, garaged in a good postcode. I have said my car was worth 9 grand. Elephant quote me 1050 quid. Which is a hell of a lot more expensive than I am paying now. So out of interest, I thought lets see some logic at work. I put in for the same details, but on a 1996 Ferrari F355 Spider worth 45 grand. Same miles per year and everything. Guess what the quote came back as.... 602 pounds.

Now how the hell does that work?

How on earth is it cheaper to insure an exotic, easy to steal Ferrari, than my 15 year old 9 grand GTR.

You are right about the GTS non turbo.... guess you will have to just go for the GTR.

If I look at a GTS Turbo, the premium is the same..

What no claims do you have?
