Holden Ute: 1, Lamborghini SV: 0

14 posts in this topic

This happened a few days ago in Sydney. The uninsured lightweight Lamborghini SV (no ABS on that model) left 80 metre skid marks.

All people involved are OK, but sore.

(According to a somebody in the know, the yearly insurance figure on that Lambo would be around AUD$7000)

That'd be cheap compared to replacing the car... dang.

If you have the kind of money to buy a Lambo, then you should have the money to insure it. Sorry to see the Ute in so many pieces though. I hope all involved are alright.

Damn, I was aiming at the UTE when I took the shot! Oh well, I will have to have a bit more Holden target practice. :P

Ummm....

7,000.00 AUD = 6,021.42 CAD

That's only $300 more than the best rate I could find for a Cobalt this year...

Canadian insurance sucks.

With my pending relocation to Canada in a few months time, that's not something I want to hear.

A member of an Australian Performance Forum that I'm a member of, posted that his brother pays AUD$7K on his Lamborghini Murcielago (with a AUD$450K insurance valuation).

James - I have friends paying 1/4 to 1/3 of what I do, because they:

1. Didn't have an accident in the last 6 years

2. Are over 30

3. Don't live in Toronto

I'm pretty sure you will also fit into all those categories, right? It's just my situation that means I get raped by the insurance companies.

I've had no car insurance claims in over 30 years (last one was in 1974), so that eliminates the first 2 points ... and I sure don't plan to live in Toronto, so there goes the third point.

Just to ruin your day, I'm currently paying under $300 per year for my car's full insurance ... although they don't consider a near 30 year old car to be worth all that much (even if I've already had collectors offer me more than 5 times the car's official book value).
