    Hello,

    Does anyone know what insurers are 'kinder' to ensuring young drivers on semi fast cars?

    Im looking at cars such as an RX-8, Type R, Z3, other similar stuff but with only 1 years NCB and only being 19 its proving difficult. Any suggestions?

    Erm have you consider at looking at corsa, novas and saxo instead?....That way you will GET cheaper insurance. With your current NCB and age, you will be looking at least 1700 pounds on an average if not more.

    Definately wont be considering those :) If i did actually get a quote of 1700 pounds on any of those cars, i'd be happy.

    Yes, try Admiral/Elephant with your parents as named drivers.

    I'm finding this the best way to insure proper cars - I've had quotes of £1300 for 4.4 litre 286bhp V8 BMW's, comprehensive, at 22 :)

    I can get a quote on a Jag XK8, 3 yrs ncb, 24 yrs old, for £800 (£100 off cos i added my old man) from Elephant.

    When you say named drivers you mean take the policy out in my name and put them as secondary drivers?

    Your post code will have the biggest impact. Barclays was the best for me as a first driver with 0NCB.

    This is probably becuase you are 19.

    Wait till you are 21.

    Get a Saxo VTR. Not too expensive to insure. Or, have a look at the VTS.
