For those buying cars in 2015, there are a number of factors to consider, not least of which is the potential insurance rate you will end up paying on your new vehicle. “Insurance rates are all about claims – how many and how big,” explains Penny Gusner, consumer analyst at Insure.com.
At the top of the price list this year is Nissan’s GT-R Nismo, a 600-horsepower, $150K, limited edition collector’s item of sorts of which only about 50 are sold in the U.S. each year.
Top 10 Costliest Cars To Insure (averages via Insure.com):
1. Nissan GT-R Nismo – $3,574
2. Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Convertible – $3,573
3. Dodge SRT Viper – $3,318
4. Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet – $3,216
5. Audi R8 5.2 Spyder Quattro – $3,206
6. Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive – $3,174
7. BMW 760Li – $3,147
8. BMW M6 Convertible – $3,115
9. Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic Wagon – $3,042
10. Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4Matic Sedan – $2,972
“I don’t think there’s any case where you’d find a GT-R as a single car in a household,” Dan Bedore, a spokesman for Nissan, explained to Bloomberg. Instead, it’s a vehicle that’s aimed at collectors who are used to the costs involved in owning other luxury cars like it.
At the bottom end of the spectrum is the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD two-door hardtop, which comes in at an average of $1,134 annually.
