In a few years, I'll want to import a Corvette Z06 to Malaysia. Problem is, I don't know how much it will cost, and I don't think anyone else in Malaysia has done it yet (googled. Nothing related to Malaysia).

I saw the sticky on top of this forum, but it's all very confusing. Haven't been back home in like 6 years now, so it's all greek to me.

IMO, there's nothing in this world that sounds like a Corvette. That raspy, low, rumbling 7.0L V8 makes my knees weak.

If someone can tell me which importer in Malaysia can do this, and calculate the price for me, I will be very grateful.

If I have to import the car without an engine, and then bring the engine in separately, I can do also. Not difficult to slot an engine into a car, if you have the right tools.

Thanks fellas.

Relevant info:

MSRP: US$87865 (RM274665) before tax, AP, and all that other shit
Engine capacity: 7000cc
Power: 505 hp (377 kW) at 6300 rpm and 470 lb·ft (640 N·m) at 4800 rpm rclxub.gif

Don't need to show pics right? I'll show anyway, in my preferred color:

There are a few chevy camaro running around KL.It isnt hard to request Naza to bring in this car provided you got the cash for it.

Your main concern should be on servicing and maintaining a car that is not available in large numbers here or totally non-existent. Finding for parts will definitely give you constant headache.

Lolwut??

How do they calculate this? RM20,000 per year is INSANE. I will have to see how my finances are doing by then, but I may have to settle for a Corvette Grand Sport instead (same suspension/chassis as Z06, just with 6300cc engine).

Not worried about that part. The Corvettes are rock solid reliable. I used to race with the local Corvette club, and no one has ever complained about things breaking. Just change the oil on time and do the spark plugs every 100,000mi.

even if you took the 6300cc one it will still cost you almost 17k per year.

6300 engine roadtax is 16k

I think he meant sourcing parts for the car. LS engine is virtually non existent this part of the world. Nearest country to source would be Australia.

Lolwut..., just looked on the calculator:

A Ferrari 458 Italia with its 4.5L V8 will only cost RM20 in roadtax per year.

The rules don't make any sense...

EDIT: NVM. It will cost 8800 per year. Still..., 4500cc is not half of 6300cc. Doesn't make sense.

the roadtax curve is exponential not linear, the higher you go the steeper the values


Added on September 21, 2011, 8:11 pmBTW for returning malaysians if you qualify you can buy 2 CKD cars in malaysia TAX FREE

I've actually seen a classic Corvette Stingray in KL, gorgeous car and very nicely kept.

Good luck in your quest, RM20k per year in road tax is nothing really in the bigger scheme of things biggrin.gif

Dunno, maybe. But I think UK & Australia has the solution for it. Otherwise it wouldn't be road legal there even just the headlamps.

in case you forget to bring your smart tag/sexy passenger/loud speaker, just stick it into reverse and go through the toll booth/drive through...like a boss.

actually, even in the USA, the corvette is not a common sight.

i dont think its feasible, unless you're some powerful ppl, like some amno datuk or damn loaded.

the 7 liter roadtax ( which makes you look like a fool when you pay roadtax more than GTR and ferarri, but cannot out run them)

and the spare parts.

and the insurance also.

The Corvette Z06 can match the Ferrari F458 and Nissan GT-R in the century sprint and quarter mile for a lot less money.

This stupid car is only good for straight line drag race. Once it hit a sharp bend, the ferrari will smoke it kaw kaw.

I really don't care if it is LHD or RHD. The point of bringing a car like that in is to ENJOY it. So if I have to drive only to Sepang and back for track days that's fine too.

Can't you just import it and keep it as a track car? I think if you can show that you are not going to drive on the road and only at the race track, then you don't have to pay any duty/taxes.

I have seen a sports car selling on mudah as a track car without any road going license.

The old Corvettes may be good only for straight line racing. The current ones are pretty damn good cars even in corners. Go look at the GT1 and GT3 results, they're certainly up there with the Ferraris and GT-Rs.

Look at the Nurburgring record, the Corvette times are faster than the GT-R or F458.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_N%C3%...leife_lap_times

I dare say that none of us reading this can ever take any of these cars close to the limits. My Sepang times for a 200+ hp car was pathetic so for all intents and purposes ie us normal drivers, the Corvette is just as fast as the Nissan GT-R or Ferrari F458 whether in a straight line or in corners.

Almost guaranteed biggrin.gif My racing lines are shit and I simply don't dare to brake at the last moment. And yes I have gone to racing school although that was a long time ago.

Some people just don't have it in them heh but blasting around Sepang or a gokart track is still lots of fun.

There are several ways.

- Sepang F1 open track days, typically around RM300 per session
- join a race, check out MAM and there are costs involved as well, plus you need to get a racing license
- join a club day at the track. BMW, Ferrari, Porsche etc have club days at the track. Some are free, some are not. You might have to own a BMW/Ferrari/Porsche etc to join though biggrin.gif

Check out the Motorsports Association of Malaysia website at http://www.mam.org.my for more info including how to bring that Corvette in tax free for track use only.

There used to be more open track days. Race + open track days + club and you can get maybe once every 2 months sad.gif

But I cannot tahan paying RM300 per session either, not including the wear and tear and replacing tires.....

-can match, but lost.
- same money.

for average joe, 4 wheel drive + dual clutch is better than rear wheel drive + 6 speed manual

and Z06 never made any name out of US continent. Gtr? lol, pwns all tongue.gif

here you go.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNT2UijpCMs

It maybe cheaper if TS just keep the car in US.
Then instead of paying RM 20,000 per year just to pay road tax, use the money for a flight back to the US and drive it like a boss.
