    It was in the hopes that SharkCar would fall apart if it ever got too aggressive. Like a fail-safe.

    Obviously this isn't my picture, but I did see one of these. (and less than three minutes later, a Bentley) Made my week. It wasn't at a car show or anything either- it was just cruising around the streets of Pittsburgh. I got lucky that day, considering that was the only time I've been to Pittsburgh.



    (just in case: this is a Reventon, not an Aventador.)

    I'd have to say, the Aventador is my favorite Lamborghini. Generally speaking though, i'm more into ferraris' cars.

    I've yet to see any Lambo outside of a dealership besides the Gallardo. Makes me feel bad, as I don't like Gallardos at all compared to their other models.

    Depends on the state, I guess? I know that in some provinces in Canada RHD cars are illegal now, unless you imported them before they came up with that law.

    Pics
    For there only being 350 LP-670's. I sure do seem to see and hear about them a lot. I mean there's even a video of one driving through mud.
    I was also convinced that all 350 were sold. Why is there one still in a dealership????

    Depends on the state, I guess? I know that in some provinces in Canada RHD cars are illegal now, unless you imported them before they came up with that law.
    RHD is perfectly legal everywhere. Imported cars are a different story, mostly because if the car was made after the requirement of the laminated glass for front windscreens, and came from a place without it (Japan/UK), then you will not be able to register the car as it will fail inspection due to the front windscreen. That, among other safety requirements that the US has and foreign countries don't, is why it is hard to import and drive a car here. Right-hand drive has nothing to do with it, really. If RHD was illegal, postal services wouldn't be having Chrysler build those wranglers they drive in some areas (New RHD wranglers, just like the LHD version but converted by Jeep for the postal service).

    The hard part is the glass, airbag regulations, safety equipment, tires will have to comply with US DOT, it's just a big mess of having to retrofit safety shit into a car that either didn't come with it or doesn't have it readily available.

    Say someone wanted to import a JDM RHD CRX SiR, the glasstop one. Well, you'd have to change the windshield out for a USDM windshield, the bumpers (the actualy bumper, not the skin) for USDM bumpers (correct impact rating), among other miscellaneous things.

    I see. I know someone who owns a BNR32 in Quebec and he just said that it's illegal to drive RHD cars there if they were imported after a certain date, didn't know how it works for the US.

    It's pretty easy to make imported RHD cars legal here, it just costs a lot of money. About $2k average for a RHD import, a lot less obviously if there is a LHD version of the car.

    If you can afford to import an R34 then I'm sure you can afford the 2k to make it legal.

    Obviously. It just sucks when you're trying to get a cheap car from Japan.
    Importing to Germany from outside the EU costs quite a lot.
    For example, if a car costs about €7.000 in Japan, you'll end up with about €12.000-€14.000 before it's fully legal, registrated etc. And over €2.000 of that is just taxes and customs... my ass.

    That's probably why we have so many Jap imports in the UK. You roll it off the boat, drive it round to get it registered and they basically just check to see if it's got some brakes.

    R32 Skyrine I drove past. Owned by a tuning company so I'd guess it's either a GTR or GTS-T.

    A lot of people here are importing them from the UK, no customs and no taxes. But it's usually easier to find cars with low mileage and in a better condition in Japan.

    I took a picture of this one when I was walking down the street while visiting New York. First time I had ever seen a Lambo in real life. I'm pretty sure its a Gallardo (I'm not good at Lambo), but hey, I'm not complaining.


    Also saw this Ferrari the same day (shitty picture though).

    I saw a Lamborghini here in town some weeks ago. With these bumpy roads I'm not surprised the owner got a crane to move it around with too since it clearly can't really drive anywhere

    Best I ever saw was this Gallardo doing a roundabout here at the beach.
    It was one of the older models, but still good.

    He might think that because new skylines are illegal in Canada. People are commonly misinformed about these type of things. I'm pretty sure R34s are completely banned here, regardless of modifications. That might of led to your friend believing that new RHDs are illegal, however it's Skylines (and possibly other cars too) due to their popularity for street racing, etc.

    Wow, really? Banned just for street racing? That must have made a lot of people mad... What about European exotics and other high performance vehicles? I can't imagine my country without skylines, they're like the staple japanese sports car.

    I'm not aware of any other cars being banned except newer skylines. I would love an R34 but they are illegal. It also makes owning an R32 annoying because they are pulled over frequently as idiot cops mistake them for R34s. It also means there's a high demand for R32 skylines so their price is very high too.

    I'm not sure about European exotics or anything, I rarely see european cars though, I think I saw an Opel the other day but they aren't common here. My friend owns a Celsior however, and there's some import Celicas floating around.

    Edit:
    Some maserati models are inadmissible.
    http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/SafeV...2/MASERATI.htm
    All daihatsu passenger vehicles are inadmissible
    http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/SafeV...2/DAIHATSU.htm
    1996 Viper Roadster inadmissible
    http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/SafeV...GLE___JEEP.htm
    All fiat passenger cars are inadmissible
    http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/SafeV...list2/FIAT.htm

    That's just a list. And take note, those are AMERICAN cars that are outlawed. One brand mentioned for the list "No U.S models were made"
    Good luck finding out what cars are outlawed, you'd have to choose specific cars and find the info on them.

    Edit #2:

    All import cars from countries other than the United States must meet Canadian safety regulations or else they are completely banned. You are not allowed to alter a car to make it safe, or such.
    The only exception is cars over 15 years old, or buses made earlier than January 1971.

    I guess I was wrong. New imports are completely banned. Fuck. (Well, all the ones that don't comply with Canadian safety standards).
