Default Road Tax not paid - save to buy?

Hello ladies and gentlemen,
My 350z roadster has been totaled by an idiot here in Czech Republic. The insurance company has upto 3 months to give me the money, so in the meantime I want to buy something a little bit cheaper. I found a BMW Z4 3.0. Its sold on UK registration plates RK04WXB. I checked online and there is no MOT and no Road Tax paid.
My question - is it safe for me to buy this car in Czech Republic and register with Czech goverment? I am familiar with Czech laws and procedures, but I dont want to wake up to a GB High Court Enforcement Agent clamping my car here. If the UK road tax is unpaid, who will be responsible? The original owner, or me? Who will they go after?
Hope my question makes sence, english is not my first language.
