I think Horacio will be rethinking that with the Zonda's replacement, and we should get a car that can be imported.But they are not on sale in the US, aren't they? What's the story behind that?
Always the man with the detailsGot my answer on the car's import status today, direct from the owner himself. While it has not been Federalized in any way, it is here through completely legal means.
His primary business is in the electronics field and he has a separate company working on electric vehicle technologies. With that company he was able to establish it as a vehicle manufacturer getting all the proper credentials and such. Using that status, he's able to import any vehicle for testing purposes just the way all the major manufacturers do it. He wouldn't be able to sell the car, and I am sure there are some limitations, but it seems to have worked just fine for him for many years.
The car was at Supercar Sunday today - finally my first time seeing a Zonda! I'll have some pics of it later on - haven't gotten them off my camera yet. Just wanted to answer my own question here since in some ways my previous comments might have suggested there was something underhanded about the cars existence here in the USA and now that's clearly not the case.
