    Cool Exotic Spotting

    Any of you petrolheads here care to share with us some of the exotics you've spotted?
    Well.....i don't have any pics but if u guys do have some pics of exotic cars you've spotted please post'em here.....btw i'm from malacca so I have an excuse of not posting any pics because there are hardly any exotics here and most of'em are parked in the houses...there is however an old porsche 911 targa near my house....too lazy to snap it though..maybe next time...

    I saw a Mclaren SLR two days ago. Probably the nicest car I've ever seen in the flesh not at a show.

    I use Opera and am having trouble uploading the pics..

    A friend of mine has a 2007 Aston Martin DB9. Her last one was AMG SL55. saw a Lambo at a restraunt Gallardo Conv last week. The restraunt biys stood next to it to protect the car. It was funny. However, if you are in LA area, you see the exotic car on the road almost once a week.

    ..only "exotic" cars i've seen, and i've seen them very often, are those Honda Civics and Accords being suped-up with a lower suspension, loud muffler(s) and rimless tires.....And if there are other true "exotic" cars which might passed by, as mentioned above, i probably have missed them..

    that thing is just another honda accord...well...not really.....they probably spent approximately~AU$ 70-80K on that thing so it might count as a show grade tuner worthy of the HOT4's modified car of the year but not as an exotic...my definition of an exotic car is a car that could: 1) turn heads 2) do 0-100km/h in about 3.5 - 5 sec 3) have a wicked exaust note coming from a monster V8 or more cylinders(up to 16 like the Bugatti Veyron or the Cadilac Sixteen), staight out of the factory floor. Exotic cars are also not mass produced so a Corvette or a Viper does not really fall into the criteria because they are mass produced, they are more like modern muscle cars. the NSX on the other hand is still considered as a clasic super car but i dont think it is quite up to the stndards of modern exotic or super cars nowadays...

    well...anyways...i do not have any pics to prove this but i saw one of the few Enzo Ferarris ever made drove past my flat when i was in Rome last year. i was so stunned by the sight of it that i almost fell of the balcony just trying to have better look at it before it turned the corner. in that same year i also saw couple of Muchielagos, a Gallardo, a Pagani Zonda C12, a Ferarri 360, a Modena, a DB9, a 911 turbo, a Carerra GT3, and last and definetly not the least, the silver arrow, a MacLaren SLR... my flat was in this street called via Barberrini which is very close to the center of Rome

    that is just a normal murcie with some lp640 bodykits...owner is from perak(nothern m'sia)...not royalty...plus...I've seen a maybach in Penang last yr...royalty...slk is not considered as an exotic in my opinion...they are quite common here...but not in Malacca where I live...maybe in KL....sumtimes i wish I stay there..plenty of exotics there...cars here are very expensive so exotics are not that frequent as in the states where cars are really cheap...
