Insuring a Ford Mustang, Subaru BRZ, Hyundai Veloster, or Mercedes-Benz SL can cost significantly more than buying coverage for a sedan like a Toyota Camry. Higher values, and high-performance features that may tempt drivers to speed and take on other dangerous driving behaviors, increase insurance costs for sports cars.

The average monthly cost of insuring a sports car varies based on the model. You can get full coverage on a Ford Mustang for $181 per month. It’s one of the cheapest sports cars to insure. Meanwhile, a BMW i8 will cost you $343 per month for full coverage.

Comparing rates from multiple insurance companies is the best way to find the coverage you need at an affordable price, regardless of whether you want to insure a sports car or a minivan. In this guide, you’ll find options for insuring sports cars so you can match costs against your favorite make and model.

Quick Facts
  • Some insurers offer additional coverage for sports cars that you race legally.

  • The Audi A5 has multiple Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Picks.

How to get the cheapest sports car insurance

Consider these steps when shopping for the cheapest sports car insurance:

  1. Do your research. Although insurers operate differently, many will have the same ratings for certain sports cars. For example, a sports car like the Audi A5 may have better safety ratings than others, like a Ford Mustang. Research which sports cars insurers generally offer the lowest rates for.

  2. Know what coverage you need. Depending on whether you own or lease your car, and if it’s customized or a special edition, it’s a good idea to know which coverage options you need and want. For instance, if you lease a vehicle, you might need gap insurance. If you have a collector car, it might require special parts coverage.

  3. Compare rates. Insurers may offer a range of rates for diverse policyholders, even two policyholders with the same driver profiles. That’s why it’s important to compare rates from multiple insurers before choosing a policy.

  4. Limit your own risk factors. Some aspects of your insurance rate, like your age and gender, are outside your control. Others are quite the opposite. Improving your credit score and maintaining a clean driving record can help you secure more affordable car insurance coverage.

What sports car insurance covers

In most cases, sports car insurance isn’t so different from a standard insurance policy. Your sports car coverage still needs to meet the minimum state insurance requirements, so all sports car policies will include liability insurance. Most insurers offer full-coverage policies for sports cars as well; this may include collision, comprehensive, towing, roadside assistance, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Some insurers, like Hagerty, can also offer specialty insurance for sports cars that are considered collector vehicles or street-legal sports cars that you use for racing.

Typical coverages offered for sports cars may include:

  • illustration card https://a.storyblok.com/f/162273/x/db598219e3/damage-from-aircraft.svg

    Liability coverage

    This provides coverage for the injuries and damages you cause another person or property in an accident that was your fault.

  • illustration card https://a.storyblok.com/f/162273/x/169fdfde11/liability-coverage.svg

    Collision coverage

    Collision coverage is designed to cover instances in which your car collides with an object, such as another car, a telephone pole, or a pothole.

  • illustration card https://a.storyblok.com/f/162273/x/665da91bf7/comprehensive-coverage.svg

    Comprehensive coverage

    Comprehensive covers damage that collision doesn’t, including weather damage, vandalism, animal damage, and theft.

  • illustration card https://a.storyblok.com/f/162273/x/abffe6238f/financial-protection.svg

    Gap insurance

    Gap insurance covers the difference between the purchased value of the car and the current value of the vehicle if it’s totaled.

  • illustration card https://a.storyblok.com/f/162273/x/5285c4cd74/uninsured-or-underinsured-motorist-coverage.svg

    Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage

    Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protect you if you’re involved in an accident and the at-fault driver doesn’t have the level of insurance needed to cover your damages and injuries.

  • illustration card https://a.storyblok.com/f/162273/x/4c9753bdbe/medical-payments.svg

    Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage

    Personal injury protection insurance helps pay for your medical expenses after an accident, as well as other expenses from the accident, like loss of income.

Factors that affect your car insurance rates

Many things can affect your car insurance rates, including the type and amount of coverage you have, your age, your gender, your credit score, your ZIP code, your driving history, and how much you use your car.

Your sports car insurance premiums may also change based factors like the following:

  • The cost to replace or repair parts: Sports cars aren’t normally as mass-produced as more economical vehicles, so replacement parts and repair costs may be higher than for standard cars.

  • Performance features: High-performance cars are often considered a higher risk in the eyes of insurers because features like amplified horsepower can encourage drivers to speed or drive irresponsibly.

  • Rate of theft: High-end sports cars are especially vulnerable to theft because they’re among the most expensive vehicles on the market.

Sports car insurance FAQs

Whether you’re a young driver leasing your first sports car or an older driver purchasing a muscle car as a secondary vehicle, here are answers to some frequently asked questions about obtaining an insurance policy for your sports car.

  • Who has the cheapest sports car insurance?

    Even with all their high price tags, USAA has the cheapest sports car insurance for all the models above. Average rates for full-coverage policies tend to fall between $110 and $269 per month, depending on the vehicle. Remember that your rate could be higher or lower than these average rates, based on your driving history and any discounts. And if you’re not a member of the military and, thus, ineligible for USAA coverage, look to State Farm for affordable rates.

  • How much does sports car insurance cost?

    Sports car insurance, like standard car insurance, will range in cost for each individual driver. For both standard car insurance and sports car insurance, factors like your driving history, ZIP code, age, credit score, and gender influence policy rates. However, sports car insurance tends to cost more and may also be priced by how the insurance company defines a sports car based on its performance features, safety features, value, and price of replacement parts.

  • Does a sports car cost more to insure?

    Yes. Many insurance companies claim that sports cars, especially those that are brand-new, likely cost more to insure than other vehicles. This is because high-performance vehicles have parts that may be more expensive to replace. These sports cars may also be more expensive to replace if stolen, and an engine with greater horsepower could tempt drivers to speed, which could lead to speeding tickets and even car accidents.

  • How can you lower your sports car insurance cost?

    Comparing car insurance rates from multiple insurers is the best way to find affordable coverage. You can also ask your insurer about any discounts that might apply. For example, many insurers provide a discount to policyholders who pay their entire premium up front rather than on a monthly basis. 

    Although reducing coverage from full to minimum liability can lower your car insurance rates, it’s probably a good idea to maintain full coverage on a high-value sports car. And if you finance or lease your sports car, your lender or leasing company will require you to have full coverage.

Methodology

Insurify data scientists analyzed more than 90 million quotes served to car insurance applicants in Insurify’s proprietary database to calculate the premium averages displayed on this page. These premiums are real quotes that come directly from Insurify’s 50+ partner insurance companies in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Quote averages represent the median price for a quote across the given coverage level, driver subset, and geographic area.

Unless otherwise specified, quoted rates reflect the average cost for drivers between 20 and 70 years old with a clean driving record and average or better credit (a credit score of 600 or higher).

Liability-only premium averages correspond to policies with the following coverage limits:

  • Bodily injury limits between state-minimum rates and $50,000 per person, $100,000 per accident
  • Property damage limits between $10,000 and $50,000
  • No additional coverage
Full-coverage premium averages correspond to the same bodily injury and property damage limits in addition to:
  • Comprehensive coverage with a $1,000 deductible
  • Collision coverage with a $1,000 deductible

Quotes for Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, State Farm, and USAA are estimates based on Quadrant Information Services’ database of auto insurance rates.
