Its not up to the Revenue
For new vehicles yes it's not up to revenue but the value of your secondhand import may be determined by revenue so whilst the rates mate not be up to them the value of the goods can be if they see fit.
I've brought cars from Japan and I moaned about the tariffs aswel but the cars were alot cheaper in Japan than the UK back then when the JPY was weak so it was still financially a good deal.
