While these cars leave the showroom in tip top condition it’s important to keep up a regular servicing schedule once they hit the road. If you’re lucky enough to run a motor trade business that services vehicles that come close to this sort of luxury it’s essential to cover your back with a customised motor trade insurance policy that won’t leave you out of pocket should anything go awry.
