Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Most Expensive to Insure, New Study Finds

Mercedes-Benz dominates Insure.com's latest annual survey of the most expensive vehicles to insure. It should come as little surprise that various minivan models are all over the Top 10 least expensive to insure list.

To calculate the numbers you'll find below, Insure.com uses averages based on a single 40-year-old male commuting 12 miles to work each day with policy limits of 100/300/50 and a $500 deductible. Rates from six large carriers in 10 zip codes were tabulated.
