If I want to bring a car into Singapore, is this possible and what sort of tax levels would it attract?

1. Must be right hand drive.
2. Must be less than 3 years old.
3. Must be inspected outside of Singapore.
4. Pay 105 percent registration tax (on market value plus shipping)
5. Pay 7 percent GST.
6. Pay road tax.
7. Buy COE.

Very expensive, very hard to do. Not many do it.

Might be worth getting in touch with a Parallel Importer if you are prepared for the above procedure and get them to do all the physical work for you, for a fee.

Most would be prepared to import a specific car for you, based on receipt of said fee.
