End of Production Special editions

With the end of production less than a month away now, the factory is cranking out some special trucks. One of our forum members who splits his time between the US and Europe just sent me a picture of his new Heritage Edition 110 so I went looking for the brochure.

The older I get the more I'm into retro. The grassmere green, the red and yellow bands on the shifters as tribute to the early colored knobs, the special grill, etc, all struck a cord w/me. I'm digging it.

And given that these are the last model of a unique, collectible car, what can we do to get one of those exemptions for importability based on show and display?

Importing a vehicle for show or display.
Certain motor vehicles that are deemed to be of unusual historical or technological significance can be imported for purposes of show or display. Information on importing a motor vehicle for those purposes can be found on NHTSA’s website at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import/ShowDisplay/. When a vehicle is imported for purposes of show or display, it cannot be driven in excess of 2,500 miles per year. As a general rule, a motor vehicle will not be determined eligible for importation for purposes of show or display if more than five hundred vehicles of the same model were produced, if a version of the vehicle was originally manufactured for sale in the U.S. and certified as complying with all applicable FMVSS, or if the vehicle has been determined eligible for importation based on its capability of being modified to comply with all applicable FMVSS.

That's the one I'd go for.
I wonder why they are displaying a LHD model?

I'm with you Doug. It would be nice to see the old two tone paint schemes too.

Is this really a possibility? Whether a Defender would qualify is one issue but has anyone ever heard of importing a vehicle like this actually working?

There was quite a few of these Limited edition trucks being built and run through the monsoon set up when we were there a few weeks ago. Was pretty nice to see them before owners gets their hands on them. According to our tour guide production is also continuing through January. They stopped taking orders quite a while back and have only been filling those orders. Things are getting desperate as people have been offering buyouts of deposits to get an order.

There are one or two ROW 996 GT3 RS legally in USA under that show and display import exemption. Never sold in USA (production was 2003-2005).
