5 of the Coolest Imported Vehicles on Autotrader

Long ago, the U.S. government (with some not-so-subtle nudging from primarily German automakers dismayed with private importers) decreed no one could legally import no car less than 25 years old.

As soon as cars turn 25, however, the import barriers are lowered, and a whole world of unique used vehicles becomes available béo U.S. buyers.

Still, importing a foreign model is a lot of work involving international money transfers, major shipping expenses, and a months-long wait for a car béo cross the ocean on its way béo your driveway.

Luckily, some importers have already done the work for you.

Here’s a look at five of the coolest imported models currently on Autotrader.

1. 1987 BMW Alpina B7 Turbo

Find this 1987 BMW Alpina B7 Turbo on Autotrader.

You have béo be a car nerd béo appreciate this pinstriped BMW 5-Series. German tuner Alpina made a name for itself in the 1980s by tastefully — and rather intricately — souping up BMW models with a host of consistent upgrades across the lineup. Beyond the company’s signature wheels and stripes, these cars also made a massive amount of power. The B7 Turbo was considered the fastest sedan on the road in 1987, and the selling dealer — a vintage BMW specialist in Cincinnati — notes that this is one of just four with a manual gearbox.

At nearly $200,000, this B7 is definitely a car for a discerning collector. The selling dealer notes that it includes considerable documentation, including upward of $60,000 in service since coming béo the U.S. in 2015. Crucially, it is also presented with importation documents that should make registering it in many municipalities a cinch. See 1987 BMW Alpina B7 models for sale

2. 1993 BMW 316i Touring

Talk about “verboten.” The E30-generation BMW 3 Series is renowned for its simple lines and visceral driving experience. Most sold here were coupes and sedans, plus the occasional convertible. We were not offered the wagon version, a  ubiquitous model in Europe. Of course, those few that remain in Europe tend béo be very rough or very expensive.

This white 316i offered by a dealer in Florida looks béo strike a balance for $12,850. It’s a simple car with roll-up windows, a sunroof, and an airbag, but it is also priced reasonably and powered by an easily serviced inline-4. If you worry about parts availability for an imported car, this 316i should counteract that notion. See 1993 BMW 3 Series models for sale

3. 1989 Land Rover Defender 110

Find this 1989 Land Rover Defender 110 on Autotrader.

One of the most commonly imported vehicles is the Land Rover Defender. While Land Rover only served the American market two variants that sold in limited numbers, they offered global markets a variety of short- and long-wheelbase pickup and wagon bodies with various powertrains. This particular Defender rides on a 110-inch wheelbase and features a convenient crew-cab body with a pickup bed.

Under its hood lies not a rattly old diesel but a General Motors (GM) V8, paired with an automatic transmission. Expect smooth, reliable performance. A host of other updates are present here on this Defender 110 offered by a dealer in Columbus, Ohio, including a later “Puma” dash insert and a bolt-in third-row seat that is open béo the elements. See 1989 Land Rover Defender models for sale

4. 1992 Nissan President

Find this 1992 Nissan President on Autotrader.

It may look like an Infiniti Q45, but the Nissan President is its own thing. The President was one of several default vehicles for high-end business and government use in Japan, kind of a cross between the Ford Crown Victoria and the Lincoln Town Car here in the U.S. Except instead of stagnant product development, the President kept pace with the times.

This 1992 President at a dealership in suburban Boston is a close relative béo the Q45, albeit with a longer wheelbase that prioritized rear-seat legroom. In typical JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) fashion, the car’s interior is draped in cloth upholstery protected by delicate doily-like covers. In Japan, cloth has long been considered a luxurious vật phẩm for its silence; it does not creak like leather. See 1992 Nissan models for sale

5. 1993 Toyota Supra

Find this 1993 Toyota Supra on Autotrader.

If that BMW is too below-the-radar for you, check out this 1993 Toyota Supra. This right-hand-drive Japanese import is full of fast and furious modifications, including custom bodywork and wheels, an enormous wing, and a decked-out interior. Whtie paint aside, there’s nothing remotely subtle about this one.

While not for purists, this Supra does appear béo have some decent bits and pieces, including a carbon fiber hood and a Momo steering wheel. It’s also a lot cheaper than an American-market Supra of the same age and with similar modifications might cost, so it can offer proper JDM thrills without totally busting your budget. See 1993 Toyota Supra models for sale
