Japanese cars are famous throughout the world for their value, quality, reliability, durability and above all economical prices. Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Suzuki are best known brands used all over the globe. Though all these brands are sold at their dedicated showrooms in each country, every week more than 100,000 used Japanese cars are imported worldwide. These cars are imported either for personal use or commercial. From cars to SUVs and Buses people like importing Japanese cars at low and affordable prices. These used cars are first bought and driven in Japan, later they are sold in the grey market. A grey import vehicle is sold and marketed legally through channels other than Vehicle Company owned showrooms, therefore; a grey market refers to the markets where such vehicles are sold.

10 best Japanese sport cars are Toyota Supra, Honda Integra Type R. Toyota MR2 Turbo, Nissan Skyline, Toyota Celica, Mitsubishi FTO, Nissan 300ZX, Mazda RX-7, Honda Prelude and Mitsubishi 3000GT.

For importing a Japanese sports car the easiest way is to log on to internet, find an appropriate importing agent or a dealer, participate in an auction, buy the desired sports car, and get it. The process seems simple, but it’s not. It is advisable to proceed through a dealer as you get a full control over the process. The dealer also makes sure that the vehicle is delivered on time, without and damages made. The hard work included in the process is only handled by the dealer themselves, also providing a viable warranty. The person buying the sports car can view it over the internet; they can choose the color, model and directly participate in the auction too. Every importing agent has a direct or indirect relation with an exporting agent in Japan. For the supply chain to work, they further contact the exporter. The duty of the exporter in this case is simpler.

The export agent would pick the vehicle; give it to a freight forwarding company that too is in business relation with both the exporter and importer. Once the vehicle is on board there are different taxations and custom duty that are paid by the buyer.

Although all the cumbersome work is guarded by the dealer you choose, it is important to know that the dealer chosen is reliable and dependable. As you are the primary buyer if the vehicle, you must make sure you get all details of the vehicle and its transportation.
