Young Timers

We at Auto Trader Imports have become one of the largest exporters of Young Timers from Japan into Europe.

This was not intentional but rather a progression that was requested by many of our frequent customers whom realised that these cars are readily available in good quantities via Japan.


Why would people look to Japan for these Young Timers instead of looking in their own back yard first?
Some very simple reasons come to mind that might surprise some folk.


1. Japanese love European cars

2. They will 95% all be LHD

3. They will mostly have some service history

4. They are normally well cared for

5. The mileage will be half of what you can find in European domestic cars on sale normally


We have everything from E500 limiteds as shown to SL500’s, BMW E30’s, Lancia Delta’s and a large amount of other cars of interest.
