Imported cars are vehicles that are brought into Australia from other countries, such as Japan, Europe, or the USA. They are often unique in comparison to local models, offering unique shapes, engines, and limited edition models that sometimes were not received in the local Australian market.

There are different types of imported cars, such as parallel imports, personal imports, or grey imports. 

Many owners of grey imports travel limited distances. That makes them ideal candidates for Enthusiast Motor Insurance, where distance travelled is a major factor in determining if your car can be insured by us.


We stand out from the crowd, proudly offering tailored coverage for your unique rides, modified vehicles, agreed value, choice of repairer, and salvage rights options.

At Enthusiast, we know how deeply you care and how you feel about your modified vehicles.

Drive with peace of mind, knowing your modified vehicle is covered with us.

We take pride in being a preferred choice for specialised motor insurance, offering tailored coverage for your distinctive cars. Together, we’ll establish a mutually agreed value, considering your modifications and unique features. This agreed value is crucial for custom or rare models, which can be worth above and beyond standard vehicles.

Drive with confidence, knowing that our tailored coverage backs your one-of-a-kind vehicle.


At Enthusiast, we recognise the dedication behind every modified vehicle owner.

In the unfortunate event of a claim, we allow you to use your own trusted repairer or we can connect you to one of our trusted repairers.

Enjoy the road, knowing that Enthusiast has your unique vehicle covered!

European Car Aficionados are celebrated for owning prestigious European marvels:  

The 2013 Porsche Cayman, meticulously designed, exudes class with its 2.7l flat-six engine and 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. 

Meanwhile, the BMW M3 fuses traditional elegance and contemporary spirit, courtesy of its 4.0l V8 engine and 6-speed manual transmission. It’s truly an awe-inspiring pleasure to see these European jewels grace Australian roads on the occasional Sunday drives.

The RX7, is a marvel with its custom PWR intercooler and a striking carbon fibre touch evident in its intake manifold, cold air intake, and strut brace. Its custom fuel system ensures optimal performance at every curve and sprint.

The transformed S2000 showcases a thrilling Honda K24A-3 engine swap paired with a K20A head. Its look is accentuated by J’s racing, Advan, Voltex, and Mugen aero parts, and a breathtaking widebody conversion. Those Advan racing GT wheels complement its stature, while the tucked wiring harness ensures a seamless finish.

It’s a treat to spot these enthusiasts parading their JDMs.

Frequently Asked Questions

As Enthusiasts, we know that some vehicles weren’t perfect when rolling off the factory floor. For that reason, we have made sure these modified vehicles still get the coverage they deserve. Our modified cover requires policyholders to disclose all modifications to their vehicles in order to be covered under the policy. Any modification to the covered vehicles is required to comply with the Australian Design Rules (ADRs) and/or the Australian Vehicle Standards Rules (AVSR). This includes any in-service requirements of the AVSR and compliance with the equivalent regulations of a State or Territory of Australia. 

We know our clients care about their vehicles and wouldn’t hand the keys to someone they don’t trust. For that reason, we can provide lower pricing to our customers by only covering nominated drivers on the policy. You will need to nominate every driver of your vehicle for your vehicle to be covered whilst they are driving. If a driver of the vehicle has an accident and they aren’t nominated or named on the policy, then we won’t cover the accident.

This benefit that allows you to choose to keep the salvage of your total loss vehicle. In the case of a total loss, you will be able to take any parts off that vehicle you desire. This will however, require you to collect the vehicle from the holding location and dispose of any unwanted parts yourself at your own expense. This benefit with Enthusiast can either be a automatic or an optional extra, depending on your vehicle’s age. Please see the Policy Disclosure Statement for more information.

Our in-house Australian-based claims team will be on-hand to handle any claim you have with us. They can handle all your claims enquiries via phone or email and are available Monday to Friday between 9am-5pm AEST. Additionally, you can download a claims form from the website at any time to start your claim process.


We will cover Modifications which you have listed in your Schedule or given us details of in writing, and which we have accepted.
