Porsche and Heineken are well-known German imports, but be on the lookout for Fauna Flash. A bit of an anomaly - Roland Appel and Christian Prommer are from Munich, not from drum-and-bass hub England - Fauna Flash has contributed engaging material since its debut in 1998.

Yes, the holds of the galleons leaving Europe for the New World are filled with fresh automotive trinkets from Wolfsburg, Coventry, Stuttgart and Sochaux. And, yes, trading for one of these Old World novelties will require more than a few of your hard-won beaver and muskrat pelts.

It comes in an eye-popping shade of orange and zooms from 0 to 60 m.p.h. in less than four seconds with a feature called "launch control" on its way to a top speed of 200 m.p.h. - if you dare. And most buyers come to Chester County's sleek new McLaren Philadelphia dealership insisting on the fully loaded model at more than $300,000, or roughly 50 percent more than the current median price of a house in the region.
