Very difficult to get an Altezza into Australia, AFAIK nearly all of them were personal imports. Recently someone imported an old netz cup altezza into the country for use as race only and he asked the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government how many had been imported and the official word is:

The database found 45 applications to import Toyota Altezza.

Of those, 38 were approved for import. 28 of those were approved for road use, the others were for racing or rallying.

So sadly it looks unlikely unless you can get a personal import, should have bought one in NZ before moving over, although even then it is costly, of someone who has documented doing it properly here were his costs,


DOTARS application $50

Freight to Aussie- $2000

Customs Tax & GST $2600

Steam cleaning $440

Niddrie VIN $40

Weighbridge $25

Pink slip inspection $130

Rego Fee $260

Rego tax $35

Stamp tax $400

Number plate $75

Not 100% sure on the rules but personal to my understanding was that you owned it for 6 months before importing, best bet is to ring the department and see what your options are in regards to that, if not try one of your local car import services, importmonster.com.au are located out of Vic and I have heard good things about them before so they might be able to help you more.

Good luck :)
