Price of Mercedes Benz in Thailand
The tax on imported cars sold in Thailand is really almost confiscatory. For example at the high end the price of a SL 55 AMG costs $423,000.00 (US). An S 500 will set you back $350,000.00 (US).
If you try to import a used car the import fee for cars with engines less than 2000 cc is 137% of the car's value...for cars with engines between 2000 and 3000 ccs the tax is 200%. The value of the used car is based on the factory price minus depreciation.
