Highest car insurance claim in British history paid

Highest car insurance claim in British history paid

The highest car insurance claim in British history has just been paid out for the repairs to a Pagani Zonda S. The Pagani Zonda S was being driven during ‘testing’ near Aberdeen when it crashed in September last year. The insurance claim for the hyper car amounted to a whopping 300,000 GBP ($631,000 NZ). The repairs of the damaged Zonda S took place in Modena, Italy, at the manufacturer’s headquarters.

To buy a Pagani Zonda S new isn’t as easy as going to your local car yard and the price is around the 500,000 GBP mark ($1.02 million NZ), so the unlucky insurance company decided to pay for the repairs, rather than compensate for the whole car.

Interestingly, the insurance claim was not lodged by the owner of the car, but by the driver at the time of the crash. The insurance excess amount isn’t disclosed but it wouldn’t have been a happy day for anyone involved.
