McLaren 720S
McLaren 720S

5. McLaren 720S

Cost of insurance: £2993

As its name suggests, the 720S produces 720 horsepower, and that translates to a 0-60mph time of 2.8sec and a top speed of 212mph. The 720S is pricier to buy and insure than its main rival, the Ferrari 488, but its handling is just as stunning and it has a surprisingly comfortable ride.

Bentley Mulsanne

4. Bentley Mulsanne

Cost of insurance: £3110

The Mulsanne may be big, brash and showy, but these aren’t necessarily negatives when you’re looking for a car that represents your status. It's undeniably stately, too, oozing luxury with a hand-built finish that you can tailor to your heart’s content.

So the Mulsanne is a beautifully finished saloon with a wonderfully torquey V8 engine. Just bear in mind that it'll cost a small fortune to buy and own.

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

3. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Cost of insurance: £3651

The DBS Superleggera is pricier to buy and run than its main rival, the Ferrari 812 Superfast, but it's more engaging to drive and easier to live with because the ride is more forgiving.

Honda NSX

2. Honda NSX

Cost of insurance: £7230

The original NSX was a groundbreaking car that blended high performance and good looks with legendary Japanese reliability. The latest version moves the game on by adding modern-minded efficiency to the car's list of talents.

All that technology doesn't come cheap, though. Prices for the NSX start just above £144,000, and our London-based driver will pay more than £600 a month in insurance.

Rolls-Royce Wraith

1. Rolls-Royce Wraith

Cost of insurance: £10,500

The Wraith isn’t like other coupés. At 5.3 metres long, it’s closer in size to a Victorian semi than an Audi TT, and with a starting price of almost a quarter of a million pounds, it’s a lot closer in price, too.

This car is a hugely appealing ownership prospect for the privileged few who can afford to buy and own one.
