Should you ever become a world-famous celebrity, it’s likely that along with your stardom will come the means to afford a car that the rest of the world could only dream about owning.
But if the pricetag that usually comes along with sought-after exotics is a problem, the price of insurance will help put ownership even further out of reach. In fact, for most people, the monthly cost of insuring the current flagship model exotic is more than an average monthly car payment.
The infographic below gives a quick breakdown of a handful of celebrities rides and what they have to pay in insurance to keep driving them legal.
Take Kobe Bryant’s Ferrari 458, for example. With a starting sticker of around $230,000, Kobe has to pay an astronomical $461 a month in insurance. If we take that rate and apply it to the length of the typical 5-year car loan, Kobe will have paid $27,660 in insurance premiums. That’s enough to buy a new FR-S, 500 Abarth, Impreza WRX, and many, many more desirable “poor, non-celebrity people” cars. Or two and a half Nissan Versas, but really, who wants those.
Check out some of the other outrageous costs to insure some of the most desirable cars in the world below:
