This thread is for sharing of car model not available in Singapore. It is not necessary that the car must be something exotic, very rare or for that matter, cost you an arm and leg (well, every car here cost us an arm and leg already...)

 

I still remembered in the early 90s (during the pre-internet era), when I made my first overseas trip to Europe, I was like a mountain tortoise, staring at every car model on the street, and spending half of my photo films shooting nothing but just "rare" cars that I have never seen in Singapore, hahaha  [grin]  [dizzy]  [dizzy]

 

OK, let me start the ball rolling, and these few are high on my list (and many more to come)...

 

BMW X1 LWB. I am a sucker for LWB model, as the additional leg room in the rear make the car feel a class high than standard wheelbase model.

BMW 5 Series LWB. Who will need a 7 Series if we can have this model...

I will stay far far from MIC BMW.

The quality is lower than Malaysia SKD.

Of course, there will also be something that I am thankful we don't have it here...

 

Honda Amaze. Doesn't it look like a smashed up City or something like that?

It depends on whether a model is ment for export. BMW wont screw their brand name by selling bad quality cars to the world. It is like iphone, no one talks about iphone being made in China.

The Honda Amaze should be a competitor for Mitsubishi Attrage.

And here are another 3 model that I like, for it practicality (space).

 

Jaguar XF Sportbrake. A very handsome and well built estate...

VW Passat (NMS). This is LWB version of what we had in Singapore, and a tad wider too.

Chrysler Pacifica. A true full size MPV, providing ample space even when all seats are in position...

Toyota Crown Althele. Seen those in Japan, very premium and full features packed. My guess is Borneo not bringing in as it may affect its Lexus sales.

I have to admit that I am not a fan of small convertible (especially after driven the 2nd generation MX-5), but I somewhat find this MX-5 based Fiat Abarth 124 Spider kind of seductive... Sign of mid life crisis?

Not just SUVs, but those American muscle cars since the 1950s.  :nosebleed:

Only recently we get to the newest Ford Mustang.
