Right in front of Manhattan motor cars. They were recieving a delivery of fresh super cars. It was awesome to see the spyker in person, the interior is wicked sick.

They were also unloading a saleen S7, although someone driving it out burned the clutch to a crisp, a cloud of smoke poofed from under the engine.

It's complicated.
Same car. He just sold it again to London Motorcars.

And bought a ML63, go figure. The prob with that 430 is its exteriour colour, and the fact that it doesn't have too many options. 3 different owners till now.

The problem is the exterior colour? I think that colour is amazing, if I got an F430, I'd get that for sure. Do you know who the owner is? The person I've seen driving it is pretty young, don't know if he owns it or not. Also, how much (%) do you think a dealership like that would give you back if you bought the car, drove it for a few thousand k's, and then sold it back?

There are stories about him on F-chat. I don't know him personally. I don't know about exchanges either, probably the owner loses a bunch of thousands because of the milage.

BTW, as I've mentioned before, the main prob with that particular 430 is its list of options.

compare these two, BTW, the TDF blue one is lowered too

Tonight saw @ work

So I was outside chilling in the cold weather, I heard some loud noise from a long distance approaching, thought it was just another 911 with aftermarket exhaust or something, yet I still waited to see the thing. Then I was surprised to see a yellow Gallardo Spyder is pulling in. Two construction guys (definately from other part of the town) were passing, they said "rich f*cker!" I laughed.

So I ran to check the car, and had a quick chat with the owner, young Middle Eastern guy, he said his car is E-Gear and stock. I was drooling over his car with another guy.
We waited till he comes back, and we suggested him to rev it a lil bit, and man wasn't that thing loud! the full throttle makes a crazy sound.

This Bentley was parked right beside the Gallardo, but I didn't even notice it at first. Haha

my uncle is company chauffeur for bentley working out of their UK plant in crewe.

Basically he gets paid to drive people around in the cars. Last weekend was sophia Loren. Only a few months back he was following schumacher as he paid a visit to the factory.

When not chauffering he roadtests, takes the bentleys around europe to make sure everything about them is robust for high mileage etc.

About six months ago he had to take a wagon over to the test track in germany, taking a massive prop shaft with him. When he got there they showed him what they were trying to do. They were attempting to drop the Veyron engine into an Arnage. Apparantly it didnt come off to well, prop shafts were lasting about an hour but they are still working on it i believe :)

Your mailroute takes you through an underground car park?

Oh and jimmymac, you lucky guy. The most 'exotic' car any of my relatives have is erm, probably a Golf GTI Mk:3 (it is one of the last 100 made) which is my uncles.

After reading the forum for a couple of months I finally decided to register so that I could show you guys some of my spots :) So, this is my first post. Great forum by the way!

I?m from Finland and I think it?s pretty good when it comes to cars. The winter is rough but during summer you see nice cars every day. Sorry for the bad quality, most of the pictures are taken with a cell phone camera, even though I wouldn?t have taken these pics without it =D

F430 and M5. I have seen (OR HEARD!) this car pretty much every day during the summer, but I was never carrying a camera with me :( A cell phone pic with a zoom, so very bad quality. This is very rare, only two F430s in Finland and this is the other, in a town of 12,000 thousand inhabitants in which I live :). My friend has been on a drive in that car. I?m so jealous =D As you may notice, the guy also owns an M5 =D

M3. Not that rare, but the only pics I?ve managed to get.. Very dirty one !

S3. I love this car!

SL65. Okay, Bulgary is crazy when it comes cars! This SL65 AMG was in front of our hotel and it didn?t move an inch during the week only gathering dust on it :/ This is the nicest car I?ve seen so far. I also saw a DB9, some Lamborghini, Maybach 62 and lots of black Q7s, Cayannes.. you name it. I love the V12 Biturbo -badge :) And the registration plates are cool too..

In Finland I?ve also seen for example a Lamborghini Diablo, a Ferrari 360 Convertible, Hummers, a Corvette Z06, RS6, a couple of SRT-10s, a Maybach 62.. can?t remember, I wish I had pics :/
