458 goes up in a mall car parkJust stumbled across this image - a couple of shots of a Ferrari 458 on fire in a parking lot. The 458 Spider's list price is £198,971 according to Parkers. And this base price can rise pretty quickly if you want extras. An Alcantara boot carpet will set you back £1,550. A carbon fibre engine bay cover comes in at £4,651. Want an iPod connection? £580 on the nose. And that's a lot of car to go up in smoke. I got to wondering how much it would be to insure me (a 42 year old male) Third Party Fire and Theft on a 458. Only 1 insurer was prepared to insure me (from a list of just over 100) - that was insureyourmotor.com with a premium of £2,091 and an excess of £3,000. They will provide courtesy car cover for an extra £28 - I suspect that it wouldn't however have the same level of refinement that the Ferrari does. A 458 was uploaded to RegArchive - click right to see it.
