And for this year, an affordable sports car under the name of Godzilla shadows its massive name for Insure.com’s annual rankings of the most expensive vehicles for insurance.

Mark Takahashi, auto editor for Santa Monica, Calif.-based Edmunds.com said, “a lot of vehicles that are just the opposite of a family car,” and “they’re for wealthy people who like to go fast. They’re aspirational and firmly rooted in entertainment. And all of them are insanely fun.”

The setup is definitely aimed for race track, but it’s developed for people looking for that supercar not just for that controlled environment.

Out of that controlled track, the Nissan GT-R are blindly fast on the road.

“It’s an extremely specialized car,” he says, that’s “sold in extremely small numbers and goes to a dedicated cadre of enthusiasts.” according to John Pearley Huffman, Car & Driver and the New York Times writer  and has also driven Godzilla.

The Nissan GT-R Track Edition is very easy to drive and it can definitely inspire confidence as a driver pushes the car to its limits, which may be why so many are wrecked, told by Ron Henderson a GT-R owner in Texas.

And from here, owning a supercar which is so easy to drive needs an extra careful driving, definitely an insurance and funding with these details.
