Columnist and quirk-loving YouTuber Doug DeMuro has only owned his Ford GT a few weeks, but he’s already had to sink $28,000 into the car.

On the face of it, that seems pretty painful, even for running an exotic car. But thankfully, much of that figure is made up of one-off costs, the biggest being sales tax. Registering the car in California proved to be particularly expensive, meaning this GT effectively wears a $17,000 number plate.

It’s better news for the insurance, however, which came in at just under $1000 a year - actually a little less than Doug pays for his Mercedes-AMG E63 wagon.

A $7000 clear wrap is another cost that won’t have to be repeated and is an optional expenditure anyway. Finally, a service came in at around $2800, which - considering the kind of car this is - actually doesn’t seem that bad.

Will any other big bills crop up? We’ll have to wait and see…
