What is 'Performance Car Insurance'?

What is ‘Performance Car Insurance’?

Performance Car Insurance differs from Standard Car Insurance. But to understand it, you must first understand what a ‘Performance Car’ is!

Let us talk you through it…

What is a ‘Performance Car’?

Performance Cars - 3

Many types of vehicle categories can fall into the title of ‘performance car’. For example: grand tourers, hot hatches, muscle cars, sports cars, and super cars (although super cars will more likely be classified under ‘high-performance car insurance’ as they are in a league of their own).

Performance cars generally have more power and capabilities. They are designed to have more acceleration than your standard car and often come with many extras to accompany the faster speeds.

Some of our favourite performance cars at Safely Insured include: the Subaru Impreza, Toyota Supra, BMW ‘M’ series, the Audi ‘RS’ series and many, many more – we can’t limit all of them to just one article. You’ll notice a lot of car marques who produce standard cars, have their own ‘performance ranges’ too. For example, the ‘M Sport’ range with BMW, and the ‘RS’ range at Audi.

As we briefly mentioned, you also get ‘high-performance cars’. The ones we adore are: the Porsche GT3 RS, Maserati GranCabrio, Aston Martin DB9 and the Audi R8. These, generally, have super acceleration capabilities and come with all the added extras to make them look the part too. With more acceleration you’ll find the spec has been upgraded to cope with the power. Some vital elements include more enhanced brake systems, different tyres and so on…
