Why don't we see Ford Mustangs around in Singapore?

This is such an iconic American muscle car, surely there must be people here (who can afford exotic sports cars) who would like to drive one here, but till this day I have yet to see one in Singapore.. There are cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche that are seen on the streets, and the Mustang GT is way cheaper than any of these cars.

A new 2007 V6 Mustang GT would be US$17k to US$20k, so which means a US$20,000 car would be S$30,346 based on the latest exchange rate of 1.5173.

COE is around $19k, is that right?

That would be a total of around $50,000 so far.

Could someone help me out on the insurance part? That is what I'm really unsure about. Say, for a 4.0L V6 Mustang GT, which is the cheapest of the current models.

Also, how much would it cost to ship in this car, and how much would it cost to change the transmission and the pedals into a right hand drive for our roads, or is Ford able to do that first before shipping out the vehicle?

Any other expenses?

Duty is 150% of LTA's evaluation. Toughest thing would be getting LTA's approval. It would have to come in right-hand drive and be certified by the manufacture to conform to all Singapore safety and environmental laws.

How long are you willing to spend in Dearborne to do that and how much would that cost. Following that exercise you would have to wait about 6 months for LTA to test the car and vet the documents you've provided.

If you're keen on an American style muscle car bring it from UK or Australia. Less hassle if it's not modified.

Japan is right hand drive and the Mustang is available there.

A 2007 mustang gt starts at about 25k and goes to about 31k. not 17k-20k.
