Question Craziest car you have tried to find insurance on

Hello, I registered here after being banned from a certain well known car forum dedicated to some stupid car show. I don't post much, because, quite frankly, it simply isn't active enough! Though I have had a good idea for a thread.

Okay, this idea probably won't float because it requires people to do work in order to participate. I am trying it anyway. Basically look up a car that you'll know will be crazy insurance then find the result of the price from one of those insurance websites and post it here, quoting your age and the car it was on. There are two rules: The car must be atleast a decade old. All quotes are liability only. The best way to do this is to use one of those "comparison" sites which gets quotes from loads of different companies (not sure whether you have them in U.S.)

I will start:

B.M.W. 750i

Age: 19

Cheapest quote:

4,107

Monthly rate:

820 first month

334 thereafter for 11 months

Did you hit an Geiko rep one day? Jesus...

EDIT: Mine. It's not really CRAZY, but I was trying to find better quotes for my old 99 Monte Carlo Z34 and the cheapest I found was about $150. I looked up quotes for a 1998 Z28, and the cheapest I got was $100!!! I don't understand how a muscle car was cheaper to insure than a friggin mom and dad car. Wish I would have bought the Camaro now, though...

I was looking at insurance for the Genesis Coupe Spec-R I'm thinking of getting, and for my age (19) with my driving record (1 ticket - I got the other 4 deferred hehe) with liability only, it'll cost me over $500 a month. Right now I pay like $180, with my Regal GS.

I pay $158 a month for full coverage with a $200 deductible. Not bad, thank god for my dad being nice enough to let me insure it under his name, 43 percent discount FTMFW.

Otherwise, seeing how I'm not even 18 yet .... I'm sure the cost of keeping my WJ would quickly skyrocket, hell its bad enough with the gas.

Is that $200 for liability only?

I have a 1K deductible on collision and comprehension, and I'm on my own. Accident and speeding.

Nah that's for full coverage. I've got a loan on the car so I have to.

My parents have full coverage for a total of like, 80 bucks a month on my mom's Durango R/T and my dads Silverado 1500. Yes, that $80 is collectively.
