    Thread: New game: best cars never sold in the US.....

    1. 05-14-2012 10:14 AM #1
      Thinking about moving overseas (Dubai specifically) in the next year or so. I would like to take the opportunity to get something not available in the US.

      Thinking R32/R33 Skylines, S15, Holdens, maybe a Fiat or Renault or the new Sirocco. Along those lines.

      Cannot be too new or exotic. No special editions of models that made it to the US.

      Doesn't that focus fall under the category of special edition of a car we can here? I know its a Euro chasis, but its still a focus.

      It's about $40,000 USD for a Focus RS in Dubai.

      A non-LHD converted R32 GTR will run you around $13,000 USD. However, I'm not sure if it's the UAE or another Saudi kingdom, but you can only have the car for a year before you have to convert it to LHD or sell it/export it.

      With BMW struggling at the time, I don't believe they sold any 507's in the USA. The King did lease one over in Germany though.

      I couldn't find a UrQ sold without a turbo motor. They should all be 5cyl 2.2 20v Turbos. I'm pretty sure they were sold in the US from 83-87, but I'm no Audi historian.
