What's your favorite car that isn't sold/allowed in the US?

Just like the R-35 used to be, what is your favorite car the US won't let you have? I've always loved the TVR Sagaris.

This is the Skyline I fell in love with first. They had similar systems to the rb26-powered cars, but were available in automatics and with awd.
I forgot about the Subaru Legacy GT-B Wagon, another killer awd daily that would have been awesome.

Seriously! This was my first love after I turned into an enthusiast on my own 95se. Then I found out about the Subaru, and then the r34. There's just something cool about having 300hp in a station wagon when the 300zx at the time had the same power level. You could have the dog, the kids, and the wife along for a ride, lol. Although the dog wouldn't probably like smacking against the rear window.

I gotta say, that focus is pretty in sweet matte black and all. What was the name of that Audi that we don't get? I think it was some version of the TT?

It occurs to me when watching top gear, and viewing this thread, that most of the really good stuff stays overseas.

This was my 1991 Mini when I was in Italy. Can not bring it back to the US because it is not old enough to be considered a classic.
