Yes, there doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason for a lot of it.

My 181bhp Volvo V60 is 185, my wife's 2010 Nissan Note 1.2 is 257, same company, same cover, same drivers.

I must admit that when I insured my manual, ex police S60 T5, chucking out 260 BHP with big brakes as standard and flying to 60 in about 6.5 seconds I burst out laughing at the quote I received of 200 fully comp through Tesco.

Same drivers for an Audi A3 1.6 petrol hatchback came out at 480.

please don't try this at home but I guess if you drove them at each other at 30mph you might see why, the Volvo should stop (City Safety) and the Note would get the blame!, Might be more damage the Nissan too and maybe the Volvo would need a small sticky plaster!
