I would have posted this in the TWW Exotics Spotted thread but it said I can't post in a thread over 90 days old (or something along those lines).

So, at 8:03 am this morning going down McDowell St. I spotted a Lotus Elise 72D. Holy shit it looked hot! I'll post a pic later from my phone.

For those that don't know:

"This collectible edition will be offered in the very limited quantity of just 50 units worldwide. Each 72D will be sequentially numbered, with special certification documenting the legacy of the vehicle, individually signed by both Clive Chapman, son of Lotus founder Colin Chapman, and Michael J. Kimberley, Group Lotus CEO. "

I believe only 20 of them made it to the US.

Gears of War parking lot [420 Crossroads Blvd.].... it looks more like a Lotus & M3 dealership than a parking lot

I consider that particular Lotus an exotic, not so much because it's an elise or that it costs around $60k, rather because it was a limited production with only 50 in existance worldwide. Sorry, I figured the garage wanted to know.

that one has been for sale for ages.

Out of the 50 produced, i think like half of them have ever sold, and the ones that did went for about the same price as a regular elise

It looks like it got subaru's sti treatment

now.. if they'd put a longitudinally mounted turbo boxer 4 in it too... then it would be SIIICK


But as it sits it is pretty much as cool as an anniversary edition camaro.

^^ i've def never seen the gt3 rs but i did see an orange gallardo convertible at east blvd and kenilworth 2 weeks ago.

and fwiw i didnt see the back of the porsche so i cant verify what kind it was, the exhaust did sound a little raspy though

Audi R8

In a rental place.

Wonder how much it costs to rent it for a day...?!

They also had a 997 911, but I couldn't see whether it was the plain one, or a Turbo or GT3.

Spotted the black Gallardo with the CARAJO! license plate again on Hillsborough today. Damn thing is there enough that I hesitate to call it exotic anymore (though, it *is* a lambo, even if it's one I see frequently...)

Ok, can't go anywhere lately without tripping over a Gallardo. There was an orange one with 30-day tags parked in the Dan Allen deck tonight, and I saw it again traveling north on Dan Allen a few hours later.
