In Belgium I have to pay 1100£ road tax every year and I had to pay 2930£ for a seperate Belgium tax depending on emissions.

 

Yikes!  But I'm sure you have better roads over there !  :driving:

Google 'Superbollo' for the Italians. I believe tax/insurance on an Exige is over £5k a year!

They also have 'Tax Police' I believe who'll pull you over and ask where the money for the car comes from!

You'd think so, wouldn't you?

But no. Very much NO. On my way to work in Brussels, I come across several sections with potholes deep enough to bottom out an Esprit.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

A Supercar will "top out" at £1050 for the first year and £500 a year thereafter.

 

Shame Lotus couldn't get the Co2 down to the next level, it's "only" £285 a year. 

 

I think it should be linked to Co2 and vehicle price. If you have enough money to afford a £250k + car then you could pay a little more.

 

Co2 listings below for UK Market.

 

 

     Co2          Yr1     Thereafter

A Up to 100 £0.00 £0.00 
B 101-110 £0.00 £20.00 
C 111-120 £0.00 £30.00 
D 121-130 £0.00 £110.00 
E 131-140 £130.00 £130.00 
F 141-150 £145.00 £145.00 
G 151-165 £180.00 £180.00 
H 166-175 £290.00 £205.00
I 176-185 £345.00 £225.00 
J 186-200 £485.00 £265.00 
K 201-225 £635.00 £285.00 
L 226-255 £860.00 £485.00 
M Over 255 £1,090.00 £500.00

Think you will find the V6 S is £485 a year, over £900 in the first year!. Thats how it is on the Evora any rate, the N/A is £285 a year and I believe the new 400 will only be £285 a year too!

Exige emissions are 235g/km. The Auto is 222 so in the lower bracket.

Blimey, I thought my S2 was enough at around £280, didn't quite expect the V6 to be almost £500 !!!

 

Hate to think what a supercar would cost.

 

We pay the second highest rate, so a supercar with over 255 g/km CO2 pays only pays £15 more for 12months on top of our £485

£9.33 per week.

Subscription to Plumpers Monthly costs less, but which would give you more fun?

:D
