QOTD: What Right-Hand Drive Stand Out Would You Want to Drive?

Today's Lotus UCOTD got me thinking -- what right-hand drive car would you like imported to the States for your personal use?

Since there are many cars from overseas that people would love to import, and many of those countries are left-hand drive like we are, let's keep this to cars that are available in RHD. Doesn't matter if they're ONLY available as RHD, just as long as they are. And as long as they aren't already sold here in LHD.

Let your imagination run.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Off the top of my head? MG ZT 260.

    The Fast & The Forbidden: 2003-’05 MG ZT 260 [w/ Video] (sub5zero.com)

    Honorable mentions are the Ford Mondeo ST220, FG X Ford Falcon Sprint (either engine), the Alfa Romeo 156 GTA, and the EC5A Mitsubishi Galant VR-4.

    Mazda Cosmo. Every one of them.

    That I don't already have?

    1990-94 Nissan Presea, basically a premium sedan version of the B13 Sentra (including an SE-R equivalent). They almost never come up on the auction sites, and when they do they're almost always beaters.

    Also, Y31 Nissan Cima, UZS131 Toyota Crown, JZX80 Chaser, JZX100 Mark II...

    On a realistic budget, a Toyota JZX90 or 100 chassis with manual trans would be the obvious take. Honorable mentions to Skyline GTS 4-doors (R32 and 34), and Nissan Cefiro.

    Cost no object, well I think a Nismo 400R might suit me fine!
