Are Ferraris expensive to insure?

Collector car insurance for a Ferrari can cost quite a bit more than other vintage vehicles. Many auto insurance companies consider them high risk due to their performance, speed and desirability but the average price varies depending on the model.

As no two Ferraris or their owners are the same, we use various factors to determine your insurance rates:

  • Your age
  • Where you live
  • Where you keep your car when not in use
  • Where you work
  • Previous claims and convictions
  • Your annual mileage
  • Your agreed voluntary excess
  • Which optional extras you choose
  • Which Ferrari model you own
  • Modifications you've made to your vehicle

For competitive insurance rates based on your Ferrari and personal preferences, contact our team today.

When is a Ferrari considered a classic car?

According to HMRC, a car becomes a classic at the age of 15 and when it's worth at least £15,000, while for tax purposes, your Ferrari doesn't get that status until it's 40.

Don't worry if yours is younger, though. Some cars were built for classic status, like your pride and joy. It's more about how you use it, rather than the age of vehicle.

Here at Lancaster Insurance Services, we know a true classic vehicle when we see one, which is why we insure both vintage and modern Ferraris when used and protected as a classic should be.

So, whether you own an original from the '60s or one from the last decade, don't hesitate to give our helpful team a call to purchase auto insurance for your vehicle.

How does agreed valuation work?

Agreed valuation is a specialist benefit for vintage vehicle owners. We understand that the market value of your pride and joy is always fluctuating.

That's why we send out a valuation expert to check your motor and agree its actual worth with you. We guarantee this value in the unfortunate event of a total loss claim instead of current market value, which could be lower.
