The motor insurance companies usually follow a list that contains the details of all motor vehicles and calculate the insurance premium according to which. Each car in the list has been assigned a number basis their make and performance. The higher the number assigned, the higher is the insurance premium. But in case of a kit car, the specifications will not be available as the car is uniquely built, if not in totality, most of the parts certainly. Hence insuring the vehicle under a normal insurance plan is not convenient and which is why insurance companies have come up with the Kit Car Insurance plans.
