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!

Wanna Buy Me a Present?

On December 20th, Bonhoms will hold its annual Ferrari and Prestigious Italians auction event in Gstaad, Switzerland.

The final highly publicized auction of 2008 promises another extraordinary collection of Italian automobiles, headlined by two historically important competition Ferraris from the Estate of the late well-known French collector Antoine Midy.

The 1955 Ferrari 121 LM Spyder by Scaglietti was raced by the late Phil Hill in both the 1955 Le Mans 24 Hours and the Venezuela Grand Prix. Also from the same collection is the 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Spyder by Carrozzeria Motto, which won 2nd in class and finished 3rd overall in the 1954 Mille Miglia, driven by Piero Scotti.In addition to the extraordinary Italian car line-up, a Ferrari motorcycle will also be offered for sale. Built by David Kay Engineering as a tribute to the great Enzo Ferrari, the one-off motorcycle bears the famous prancing horse badge. The highly reputed MV August expert David Kay received complete approval and good wishes for the project from Enzo’s son Piero Ferrari.

Ignoring the fact that that town needs to move some of its vowels around, the cars at this auction are GORGEOUS! Buy me one. Preferably this one:

1951 Ferrari 212 Export Spyder – Estimate $2,315,000 - $3,145,000.

1951 Ferrari 212 Export Spyder – Estimate $2,315,000 - $3,145,000.
