On the Car insurance blog we provide advice and suggestions on why it is important for road safety to have more insured vehicles on our roads. We also strive to provide info on how to find affordable car insurance, how to submit a claim and how to challenge a decision not to make an insurance payment!
We have recently also provided some information and advice on finding sports car insurance – a rather specialized field in the car insurance industry. We have discussed why sports car insurance is rather expensive and how the owner could reduce his sports car insurance premiums.
Earlier today I have come across an interesting story on Wheels24 titled “Zonda crash nets £300 000 claim”.
I would like to quote from this story:
“This exclusive sports car is said to have lead to a rather extraordinary insurance claim tallying up to a neat £300 000. The (unsurprisingly) anonymous test driver spun the Zonda on a narrow back road before colliding with a telegraph pole and smashing through a fence.
The driver’s insurer – Avivia – optioned to ship the car back to Pagani’s Modena factory to have repairs done, instead of writing the £528 000 supercar off completely.
An Avivia spokesperson admitted the Zonda repair is a rather hefty calculation on the company’s balance sheet. “This is the biggest insurance pay-out we have had for repairs to a private car in the UK. This is out of the ordinary for an insurer.”
We would like to urge all vehicle owners to ensure that their vehicles are insured! Also view:
