Best for insurance are Renault 5s and old Beetles apparently. Doesn't make them desirable though
Provisional insurance is relatively
cheap ~£60/week (hopefully only need it for a couple of weeks! Best quote I've had from confused.com for anything is around £5000/annum! 110 was over 8k, and a 2grand bmw 8 series 18k!!
Looked at a Mito but there don't seem to be many reasonably priced yet, they've just come out with a 2cyl version, so hopefully next year a nice one will come up, insurance is still astronomical though
I originally looked at an old Mini but the issue is that you will get killed if you crash
at least in a Land rover it's the other person that suffers (unless you roll over..)
