Most Expensive Cars for Glass Replacement

Fortunately for car owners, most car glass replacement is reasonable. In fact, it can even be free in some cases! (Under Kentucky law, for example, drivers with comprehensive coverage can get their deductible waived when replacing a broken windshield.)

However, that doesn’t mean all glass replacement can be done for a few pennies. Sometimes, it can be quite pricey. Exotic cars have their upsides, but there is one downside: they can have all the problems of a regular car—from worn brake pads to chipped or cracked glass—but the repair costs are ludicrously high.

Here are the most expensive cars for glass replacement! Keep reading to find out.

McLaren F1

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the McLaren F1 is one of the most expensive cars for glass replacement. Only about a hundred of these cars were made, with a very limited supply of spare glass and a design that necessitates specialized labor. As a result, windshield replacement on this car could run you $33,000, according to a Motor1 report. (That’s $25,000 for the windshield itself and $8,000 for the installation fees.)

Bugatti Veyron

When the car itself costs more than a million dollars, you can be sure that the parts and labor required to keep it running will be expensive as well. An oil change and routine annual maintenance can run upwards of $20,000, and for a new windshield? Think $60,000.

Pagani Codalunga

The Pagani Codalunga—the cost of which will set you back about $7.4 million—has a glass replacement cost to match. Car owners have reported being quoted an eye-watering $30,000 for windshield replacement for a Pagani.

Aston Martin Vantage

Compared to the previous cars, the cost of an Aston Martin is practically a steal. (It retails from $143,000.) Still, this car’s glass replacement will set you back a pretty penny. One Aston Martin Vantage owner reported a windshield replacement cost him over $4,000.

These are just a few of the many cars that are expensive to maintain. Other car companies—like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, and more—will have your repair invoice topping out in the thousands.

Why Can Glass Replacement & Repair Be So Expensive?

Why are these cars so expensive to replace windshields and other glass? There are a few reasons. The cars have specialty parts (which often need to be ordered from overseas), and the repairs require more specialized, labor-intensive work. In the case of the F1, parts scarcity also drives up the cost.

But it’s not just the most expensive cars in the world that see higher repair prices these days. More “middle-of-the-road” luxury cars, like a Mercedes, and even entry-level sedans can have higher costs, thanks to additions like LED headlamps and ADAS systems. Glass repair is simply more complicated than it used to be.
