We hear a lot about the national average auto insurance rate climbing. And it is. Up about $131.74 in 2011. Right now a 40-year-old male will pay an annual rate of roughly $1,560. Drivers in Vermont get the best insurance prices at $995 a year; Michigan drivers take it on the chin at $2,541.
Nationally, it all comes out to an average of about $131.74 a month. Since by law, we all have to have some form of coverage, everyone is out to find cheap car insurance. But hey, we’re human. We like knowing some people have it much, much worse. Let’s look at some of the most expensive cars in the world to insure.
- The two-seat Mercedes-Benz SL class, produced in small volumes for buyers with highly refined tastes, does not come cheap, selling at roughly $185,000 invoice. It’s not a cheap insurance car either. Average premiums? $1,577
- Drop the two-seat Honda S2000 in the same class. It’s cheaper to buy at $34,995 to $36,995, but you’re still going to shell out $1,587 in auto insurance for the roadster’s 237 hp and 162 lb. ft. of torque.
- How about the Audi R8, the company’s first “super” car in the mid-engine range. Plunk $114,200 at the dealership and then get prepared to shell out $1,637 in insurance.
But actually, the insurance rates go downhill — or maybe it’s uphill — from there.
