I'm not an expert, but I'm sure that making a Bowler street legal for the US is as easy as converting a Formula One or rally car to street legal. In other words, forget it.

Unless you are Bill Gates.

It's my understanding that he threw around enough money to get the laws changed so that he could import a Porsche 959. This Forbes article mentions it:

Let us know if you have success. I know there are a lot of board members who would love to import a Bowler, or even a new Defender...

Perhaps we could look into a group buy....

I always thought you should be able to build it on a RRC or disco chassis/engine/trans/axles and you would be fine keeping the donor title. JMO.
Probably look into kit cat reg in your area.
