Seen anything cool on the road lately?

I went downtown to Chicago yesterday and saw a higher than normal number of cool cars on the way.. First it was a white Aston Martin Vantage Convertible, either a black DB9 or Zagato (the thing blurred past me), a gray Lamborghini Gallardo, bright red Nissan GT-R, and what I think was a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, white.

Best among them was the GT-R, never seen a non-gray/silver one.

So anyway, what cool cars/bikes have you seen lately?

I saw 3 GTR in 5 days last fall when they got here in Canada ... Or was it early this spring? I'm not sure. Anyways I haven't seen another one since.

I saw a Camaro 2 weeks ago, but who cares, right ?

mmm There is a brand new Exige driving around town that I've seen a few times. It's bright orange and it looks fantastic

I got owned by a fancied up GT-R going onto the sliproad of the M60 the other day.

Saw an XKR-S on Thursday at some lights too, was going the other way though.

There's a random bloke who lives around here with a lovely new Phantom Drophead too - lovely royal blue.

a '74 bight yellow, lovingly restored RR with a walnut interior.

after 5 years in Dubai, the new stuff fails to impress me. the dedication to a classic on the other hand....

I've been working on site in some pretty nice areas of London lately and saw some amazing cars:

Hundreds of Bentleys
Hundreds of Mercedes, all AMG versions
A Mclaren Mercedes SLR
Loads of Range Rovers, some with really nasty body kits etc
A few Audi R8s and some Lamorghinis
Dozens of Aston Martin DB9s
A couple of GT-Rs
Quite a few Rollers including 2 drop tops
A few Ferraris

The best is a tie between a mint condition Aston Martin DB5 or a Ferrari Enzo.

And probably quite a few more I've forgotten!!

Saw a BMX X6 on the A406 last week, pretty ugly but it looks mean as heck in the rear view mirror.

There was some bloke in an awesome custom hot-rod thing (exposed engine and all) down the local leisure park friday night aswell.

Porsche Carrera GT
Porsche GT3 RS
Ferrari Testarossa
Ferrari F430
Lamborghini Gallardo (in black, shweeeet)

Strangely, I saw the two Porsche's in Weston Super Mare.

oh yeah this reminds me, there's an Audi R8 next to where I work. It's not noisy and it looks like a very small car.

Still cool though

i pulled up behind an f430 the other day at a stoplight on main street. i slipped my smart car into neutral and revved it a couple times, didn't get a response.

and less recently: an MC12, an old countach in incredible condition, a couple other 430s, lots of 911s, a vantage, and apparently there's a guy in town who owns a veyron but i haven't seen it yet.

Maybe they will come out during the week. Weekends are slow here. Blame the mountains and the gorgeousness that is Colorado.

I can never resist doing that in my Clio, tried it with a Stradale last Summer. Reminds me of trying to duel level 70s when I was a level 15ish back in my WoW days.

since I live in a small town in Wisconsin nothing really special just a purple 1969 Camaro, a black 1971 Chevelle, a 1976 lifted Chevy stepside bright yellow, a few newer jags, a landrover once and a great while, and some other older cars cruising around town

Not toooo much around here, mostly due to factors such as a) people with the money know squat about cars and b) income/expenditure is way screwed here, leading most people never to buy a cool car.

but lets' see:
3 Bentley Flying spurs around here that i have seen
1 old Jag E-Type in red (don't ask me what year, but it's an old one - just needs a new paint job)
1 Aston (apparently... i have yet to see it)
1 new Porsche 911 (don't ask which one... i think all porsches look alike)
bunch of Porsche Cayenne and Caymans.

Topping off my list would probably be the Jag XK i saw recently... it's quite possibly THE COOLEST car in the country, unless that Aston is a DB9/Vanquish/DBRS
