Hello!
I'm pretty familiar with the Dubai car market and it's still crazy to me how much cheaper cars are over there. The Murcielago SV is my all-time favorite Lamborghini and I found this one for sale by Al-Ain Class Motors (great people by the way)

There's also this UK example:

And a ducktail (rare!!) example from Germany:

I was wondering if anyone has attempted to import and/or register an exotic like this? The price difference is over $200k USD so wouldn't it be worth the hassle?
Some things of note:
-would have to pass DOT, EPA
-heard that if there is a US made equivalent (in this case a US-spec SV) then they won't allow it... wonder if that's true.

Thanks everyone for the input.

Nearly impossible
Do some research
I did! Could have sworn you chimed in on a similar topic a while ago (or maybe I'm mixing people up.)
Came to that conclusion but we are in unprecedented times... and I've seen many impossible situations happen before and during COVID

You can try to import the Murci SV under "show and display".
Absolutely awesome to have you reply to me as always, you're definitely a great contributor to the forum.
Every international dealer has been more than willing to work with me; if I decide to go this route will be sure to post about it in full detail.
This is very different than, say, importing a 959, F1, or Skyline. I wonder how an imported Murcie SV (or any Lamborghini) would do on the market?

I explored the idea of importing a Mercedes’ A45amg from Mexico to the United States. Now, this isbit different as this car does not have an equivelant in the United Tate she. Every import broker told e the same. Yes, I could have a show and exhibit importation, but not a driving everyday type of importation dot epa importation. I would have to buy 100 car, crash them, and that would prove to dot/epa if it did pass crash test, then smog test and retrofit the smog system.
No thank you. Now, I could drive it across the border for a year under a temporary importation, but once the year expired, it would need to go back.
