Xpecial Motors specializes in importing European and Japanese classic cars, trucks and motorcycles that were never imported or sold in the US domestic market.
We offer complete door-to-door no-hassle international import services of one-of-a-kind hard to find European and Japanese classic vehicles for personal use, marketing and advertising purposes.
We can source, transport, import, custom clear, title and deliver your vehicle in 48 States (Unfortunately no CA or HI titles are available at this time) From start to finish we handle it all. There is no need for you to go crazy trying to deal with Foreign Shipping Companies, Brokers, Non US Banks, Freight Forwarders, Customs Officials, DMV paperwork, etc.
Thanks to a network of knowledgeable on-site partners such as individual car enthusiasts, local dealerships and sourcing agents we are able to locate, purchase and import the vehicle of your dreams. We currently have partners in Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Hungary and The Netherlands. Onsite Japan agents will soon be added.
Not all non-domestic market vehicles are importable. We do specialize in 25+ y.o. classic cars, trucks, special service vehicles and motorcycles only.
At this time all motor vehicles up to Model Year 1995 are eligible for import in the USA under the 25-year-old NHTSA Exemption import law.
We do not import anything younger that 25 years, although if you want we can purchase it and store it until the vehicle turns 25 years old and then import it for you.

All motor vehicles that are over 25 years old by month/year. Simply put if a car was manufactured no later than today’s date in 1995, it would now be over 25 years old and legal to be imported into the US.
Unfortunately regulations in California are some of the strictest. To be able to register car in California you will have to bring a car to compliance with safety and environment requirements. As far as we know it is possible, but the cost of bringing the vehicle into compliance with modifications and testing sessions can range from $ 5,500 to over $10,000 depending on vehicle model and condition, making the proposition of owning these cars in CA way less interesting. Furthermore from MY 1996 all cars are required to have OBD II, which adds more cost and complexity to bringing the vehicle into compliance.
Trying to import into the United States cars that are less than 25 y.o is a process that is at best described to very near to impossible. There are Companies that do offer this service but the time and financial resources necessary to accomplish this task go beyond the scope of our Company.
