Insurance costs

Just wondering a rough idea of insurance prices for a kit car

I know it probably varies a lot depending on vehicle type and specifications but would anyone care to share as an idea of prices please?

For the record I will be 29~30 year old when my car hopefully will be complete

Tiger Avon cost me 101 when I was 30 6k value 1000 miles
Westfield cost me 124 a year in 3000 miles and 14k value.

Its less about specific spec and more about value. I got guaranteed valuation for my westfield as it had an expensive engine.

They ask if its modified which is irrelevant but its a yes to that question and the engine size and that's all I've been asked in past.

My car was 303hp zetec turbo engine.

I got a quote for a fury a few weeks ago at 96 quid if I added a tracker and retrieve which would cost 400 quid. Or 105 without. Obviously not worth the expense.





Thanks

Not actually insured mine for 18months but don't think I've paid more than 180 for my Striker(and my license ain't exactly a clean sheet,but I'm over 35)
I generally say 10k value, 270bhp to be safe and 5-6k miles. Generally have around 4 named drivers on it too. As always you need to shop around,they differ dramatically.

I'm a bit older at 52 and have an agreed value of 5500 [that might be a bit low now] and mine costs 88 per year on a 2.0 MK Indy.

Mk Indy, 1.8 pinto, 3k and 40 years old was around 120 fully comp.
We will see how it changes with the 2.0 turbo this year.
