Buy a Brand New Puma 110.....in Mexico!

So apparently, Land Rover has started selling new 110's in Mexico. Who knew? Still a titling problem though......

Link to Land Rover Mexico website:

You cannot drive those vehicles in the US... they don't know how to read/write in English.

So drive your rhd early D110 down there and drive back a new Puma after you flop your tag on it? May have to keep the brake booster as well.

Sounds like a plan. Maybe have it painted if the color doesn't match the new one and have the DMV record it first? Oh wait, I sold mine. CRAP!

There is some weird thing about exporting these from Mexico. The guy I met with the two new pumas told me that he had to import from the uk to Mexico and then export to the USA. Not allowed to directly export from Mexico.

If I had a vacation place in Mexico and bought and registered a Puma in Mexico could I drive it in the states w/ Mexican plates?

Probably not without being stopped by drug enforcement agents every few miles.

Do vacation rentals that include a Defender to use.
I'd go.

No unless you are a Mejicano or you have a Company in Mexico and issue a power of attorney for you to drive the vehicle anywhere in the world as their employee , then yes

I'll confirm this, but I thought if you had a legal residence in Mexico, you can tag a vehicle there and drive here. I'll ask my yard guy, his truck has sonoran plates, but he lives here and is actually legal.

My understanding is that for a US citizen to own property in Mexico it has to be as a corporation. Its just as big a hassle as buying a place on one of the British Virgin Islands. I have friends who have homes on the Sea of Cortez /Baja Mexico and the say it was a mother to get set up.

I would not want to try driving a brand new puma through Northern Mexico. You might only get it taken from you, but why risk your life ? How many police chiefs have they had in Tijuana and Juarez in the last 2 years ?

Not 100% true Doug, we own a condo in Rocky Point (Puerta Penasco), MX, on the Sea of Cortex. It's not a rental property and we have a 99 year lease on the land and complete ownership of the condo. We go to Mexico all the time and have had zero issues crossing the border in Lukeville, AZ. Don't get me wrong, the border is f'd up. There's violence in most border towns revolving around the drug cartels, some are worse than others but this shit's been going on alot longer than the news has been reporting it. There are places that are a war zone, but the places that are kinda of safe outnumber those 5 to 1.
