Step 1: Buy Ferrari, Step 2: Pay Yearly Insurance Rate Equal to Cost of Car

Andy Murray is a 22-year-old Scottish tennis star who living a pretty standard early 20s existence. For instance, his super-cute now ex-girlfriend Kim Sears broke up with Murray in November because she was tired of him playing video games 7 hours a day.

Now, a mere 5 months after passing his driver’s test Murray, the world’s #4 ranked player, decided he wanted to buy himself a used car — partly to get over his recent breakup. Like most of us buying our first cars, he wanted to get a good deal, and so, obviously, he bought a Ferrari. He DID get a good deal on the car, paying nearly £50,000 less than the cost of a new supercar, but is probably in line for a big shock when he gets his first insurance bill.

That’s because, being a new driver, under 25-years-old, newly qualified to drive a high-performance auto and a celebrity means that his costs for insuring the car are likely to be astronomical. Murray paid £100,000 for the car and according to a survey of insurers, is likely to pay right around that sum A YEAR in order to get the appropriate insurance. Yikes!

Considering he’s already banked over £10M in endorsement contracts alone in his nascent career this purchase, and its subsequent costs, shouldn’t bankrupt the young star but it still is mighty exorbitant. But hey, he’s freaking 22-years-old, if you gave me that much money at that age I’d equally blow it in similarly fun fashion, so, more power to him. Enjoy it Andy!

That’s Not a Regulation Court

In Miami, in an effort to promote the Sony Ericsson Open which begins tomorrow, Venus Williams and Andy Murray headed out to the streets. Getting on top of top specially modified cars, the two played an “impromptu” match, if a publicity stunt can be referred to as “impromptu”… No word on if the cars actually were driving around too or not with the tennis stars on top, but I for one doubt it. Meaning this promotion is lame and not dangerous enough; now, do this on the highway and I’ll be impressed.
