advertising, promotion, public relations, sales, after sales, warranties,
spare parts, performance parts, long term support, etc.
Some examples of our specialty vehicles and small volume

Countach, Peugeot 205 Turbo 16, Porsche 959, Renault 5
Turbo, Ford RS 200, Ford Escort RS Cosworth, etc. These vehicle are not available
in the USA from the original manufacturer because it is impractical or
impossible for the manufacturer to
accomplish the US homologation / Certification for such a small volume and to provide
all of the marketing and support including long term after sales support that would
normally be provided for larger volume vehicles. We can provide all of the support or
advise on the vehicle program solutions.

marketing, sales, distribution, promotion, engineering, Certification for US
specifications, small volume vehicle programs, spare parts, etc. we can provide the
complete solution or advise and help your company to develop all or any part of your
Sun International experience:
We can provide access to vehicle import services including Customs Broker, legal,
bonding, Registered Import (DOT) and ICI (EPA).
When contacting us for consulting please consider the following:
If you would like to import your own personal vehicle which will require services of a Registered Importer and Independent Commercial Importer, we strongly recommend that first you contact several representatives of the manufacturer to possibly obtain specific information regarding the difference between your present foreign vehicle and the manufacturer's US version of that model. In some cases the manufacturer has been able to supply an actual list of necessary modifications. Keep in mind that it is not always seen as in the manufacturers best interest to supply this information as it may be seen as a lost sale through the US importer. Nevertheless, it is worth your effort to try for this information.
