Saw an BMW M3 and Conti Gt today(D500 camera pic), half an hour after I saw my 1st Carrera Gt at traffic lights, sped away before I got a pic, bloody amazing sound and it looks fantastic. Also on tha way home a 575 sped past us, again didn't manage a pic.

For some reason I keep getting unsubscribed from this thread.

I saw three F430s in one day on Thursday though... one red, one dark blue and one light blue... pretty sure the last one was a Spyder but didn't get a good enough look or pictures.

It's complicated.
3 F430's for me today as well, plus a Carrera GT and a DB9. None of them were on the road though... On the road there was a Ford GT (Plates matched the one that Salar posted earlier) as well as a blue Gallardo, the sweetest looking car I've seen in a while. Anyway, here's the photos I could get:

And also have a look at the cars in the background of this photo, a widebody 911, a new SL550 that actually had OK rims, and an M5 with possibly the worst rims I've ever seen...

Either your (camera) phone has horrid quality or that F430 was ordered by a psychopath. :D

What event were you at?

I thought that show was all rice and stuff. Damn. If I knew there were those cars I would've gone. :? :roll:

That's the same orange 430 Spider I saw two weeks back in West Van.

It's ORANGE.

BTW, I have seen that red 430 with aftermarket rims before as well. Picture is in this thread.

I'm lost for words... I was hoping it was the phone messing the colours up

Is it like the orange Lamborghini uses - because that actually suits their cars.

But *that* orange is just :puke:

Thats what Porsche call "Carmon Red Metallic". I don't love it but I don't mind it. Its like candy apple red but a bit darker which could make it look brown at night time.

And yeah...thats the better looking Boxter 8)


btw: Sorry about getting nitty but by "new Audi A8" you mean "updated" ;)

That was obviously before Volvo's philosophy of the square shape being the "safest" object to be in on the road. Interesting door handles...

That's a 930 Turbo with a Slantnose ("Flachbau") conversion. They were avaliable for 911's through Porsche's special order program, and are pretty rare and expensive. So that's a great find there.

That Boxster has a lovely shade of red, but it doesn't suit it.
