Corvette origins

The Chevrolet Corvette was born an icon, rolling off production lines in 1953. The C1 was produced from 1953-1962, boasting beautifully sculpted side coves, exposed headlamps and rolled up windows.

The original was restyled many times – here's a quick rundown of its successors:

  • Corvette C2 (1963-1967)
  • Corvette C3 (1968-1982)
  • Corvette C4 (1984-1996)
  • Corvette C5 (1997-2004)
  • Corvette C6 (2005-2013)
  • Corvette C7 (2014-2019)
  • Corvette C8 (2020-Present)

The latest model is certainly a lot different from the original but is as powerful and cool as ever. The C8 holds the fastest 0-60 time of any entry Corvette ever at less than 3 seconds and is the company's first ever production mid-engine.

Luxury Corvettes are still a must-have for many classic car enthusiasts and have stood the test of time better than many vehicles.

How much is classic Corvette car insurance on average?

There's no one price fits all when it comes to classic Corvette cover. Insurance companies consider a variety of factors when putting together a quote for a Corvette or other sports cars, no matter the model year:

  • Your age
  • Driving history
  • Where you live and work
  • Modifications and cost of parts
  • Annual mileage
  • Where you store your car
  • Your voluntary excess

Is insurance higher on classic vehicles?

Generally, heritage cars cost less to insure compared to newer models. Why? Classic car owners tend to be much more dedicated to keeping their motors well maintained and stored securely. If you're a daily driver, you're also more likely to get behind the wheel of your regular car than your pride and joy.

As a result, insurance companies offer lower rates, but it's a little different with the Chevrolet Corvette. Sports cars come with a higher risk rating on average, especially for young drivers and newer models. That's why it's so important to come to a specialist insurer.

With more than three decades in classic coverage, we've built up a huge panel of trusted insurers to find the right fit at the right price for every owner and their motor.

We understand you want more than value for money alone, and work hard to tailor your policy to suit your unique circumstances.

How does classic car insurance compare to regular car cover?

Classic cover is aimed at vintage and collector models that are mainly used for leisure. The level of coverage and how your insurance plan works will be very similar to an average regular policy, but insurance rates are often less.

Corvette insurance is tailored to your specific vehicle and needs, more so than a regular plan, meaning your classic car gets the protection it truly deserves.

Why choose our insurance company to protect your Corvette?

The team at Lancaster Insurance Services is just as enthusiastic as you are about vintage vehicles, which is why we do everything we can to protect classic Corvettes produced from the '50s to the present day.

Whether it's a Chevrolet Corvette, Corvette Stingray or a more recent model, we know how important it is to you. That's why we make it our top priority to customise your policy just the way you want it.
