Well, you actually can do it, but you need to have owned it and lived with it in the UK for 12 months. So unless you are planning on moving to the UK you can't do it.

However, there is the RAWS system that allows an Aussie to purchase a car OS and get it imported into the UK. There are only certain cars that allow you to do this and only certain companies that are legally allowed to import the cars for you (which charge something like $20,000 for a Ferrari for example) check this link out :
