The Unobtainables

8 posts in this topic

The U.S. car market is the biggest and most competitive on the planet. Still, there are several wild, exciting and unique vehicles that cannot be bought here, no matter how much money you are willing to lay down. Many of these rolling wonders are designed and built by tiny boutique automakers that cannot or simply will not shell out the millions of dollars needed to certify their creations for sale in the New World. Others are so radical in design and purpose that they just wouldn't conform to the various U.S. safety and regulatory standards. And a few more are so exclusive and built in such small numbers that they are all spoken for before even rumors of their possible existence reach American ears. Have we piqued your interest yet? Well, here are 10 of the coolest cars you can't get here in the States. As you'll see, they are sexy, powerful and very desirable. Welcome to the world of the unobtainable.

I thought they at least used to sell the Koenigsegg here.

Don't find any of 'em either desireable or exciting.

only the Morgan remotely interests me.

Show me some big sedans like a Chinese SLS or Park Ave.

I like the Morgan Aeromax and the KTM XBow. The coolest unobtainium car (available in the UK, not the US that I know of) is the Ariel Atom, IMHO...a go-cart for the road..would love to drive one on the Ohio backroads.

The various midengined supercars not available here don't interest me, most look like a bunch of ugly fiberglass and carbon fibre glued together.

The cars not available in the US that I find interesting are more down to earth, such as various diesel Mercs and BMWs, and various Euro models of Peugeots, Renaults, Citroens, Alfas, Fiats, Opels, Fords, etc..
