How do I get hold of a B8 4.6 drop top?

I've fancied a B8 4.6 rag top ever since I had a paper round. I think its time to take the plunge and replace the TVR.

Where do I find one of these things and what should I be looking for/what should I be paying?

no just go and buy it when you do the transfer of log book for car you will get number plates with an expiry date and you will be able to buy insurance to cover you to get the car to uk it costs about 50 euros for a month, then drive back register with dvla and thats it. you may have to put it through some test to say your car is up to uk spec that costs about 200 pounds to sort it all out.
