Make sure your Ferrari is adequately covered
If you are lucky enough to own a car from the illustrious Ferrari family, you will want to be confident it is adequately insured.
Drivers of high-performance cars are frequently penalised by insurers because of the supposed higher risk associated with high powered cars.
Adrian Flux takes a different approach. We know those who buy their dream car are likely to take special care of it. Because of this, as well as our generous discounts for committed enthusiasts, security precautions and experience of driving powerful cars, in most cases, we are able to offer high-quality policies at incredibly low prices.
