Don't have a text from you...

Btw, this power business is funny... I already feel pretty used to it. Hoping for rain @VIR for a track event next week.

I was driving through a little community off of HW 64 in Apex I think called Salem Villlage. Happened to see a red Ferrari Modena parked in one of the garages and an Orange Lamborghini Gallardo parked in one of the townhome parking lots.

Just found that kind of interesting to see exotic cars in that small neighborhood.

Isn't that one of the arguments against daily driving cars like that?1

Yeah 500hp in their sleep....

One of the fastest street cars I've ever seen is Eddie bello's 993 turbo.

1300hp and weighs nothing.

Amazing pics here... make sure to watch the embedded preview of the Channel 4 documentary in the second link... Is that open-wheeled no-windshield car a BAC Mono?

Just saw a red Ferrari California at the Walnut/Tryon Harris Teeter.

IMO, it's one of the worst looking Ferrari models.

Spotted a dark grey Noble M400 yesterday on Glenwood by Five Points.

Anybody know much about this car in particular? Overall they seem like quite the rare bird - less than 100 built.

not sure if would be considered "exotic" or not...but I got to drive a Jaguar XK and an F-Type from the car show in Charlotte a couple weeks ago. The smoothness of those rides was mesmerizing.

Just saw a BMW i3 in DC. Looked bigger and better than it does on the photos, but a lot of cool factor was lost on the way from prototype to production

^ the truth

^^ not that it matters, but just though to let you know it is SLS AMG (AMG comes at end of MB car names)

Saw a 1960 Eldorado in pristine condition, plus a red Phantom.

Yesterday saw a Vanquish, not the current one, but the previous one before it was discontinued. That Aston is classically beautiful and will remain forever so.

There's a matte gray SLS AMG Black Series that's up and down Wade Ave between Ridge Rd and Cameron Village on a weekly basis

I've met that guy at Cars & Coffee. Kudos for him to daily drive that beast. He also owns an SL65 AMG Black Series (it's red).

Raleigh must be getting wealthy; I don't really consider any of those exotic (unless that R8 spider is a V10).

^yes.

H1 is not very common to see. No one can afford that 7 mpg highway.

You think they will ever get cheap?

Since they are "just an Audi" not a lambo or something

Like 7 year old 911 turbo cheap?

It was spotted in San Francisco, not Raleigh.

but yeah our company parking lot has few Teslas and I see few every day. Quite common now in the Bay Area, considering manufacturing plant is located here.

He lives in Raleigh so his "meh factor" is based off living in Raleigh... Sorta like when I lived in charlotte before the market crash there were Bentley continentals fucking everywhere to the point where I felt like they were mustangs.

It was weird I pulled into one of those shitty BP stations at Crabtree and there were at least 4 Porsche's there...the GT3 RS, a 911 Turbo and 2+ others. They were on their way to the NCMOA.

That one does seem to attract some nice cars to the parking lot--when I was there to see it, I was sharing the back lot with an R8 (not a V10 though) and a 911 Turbo.

As to personal spottings, saw a '59 Coupe Deville a few days ago. (And if fifties classics qualify, there's someone down the street from me who owns a '59 Edsel and usually parks it on the street...)

Well, my non exotic 911 turbo needs radiators (which are almost $770 a piece, there's 3 of them), that only fit the GT2 and GT2 RS, fewer than 15000 total production. :/

That said, I imagine the overall ownership experience is a lot less exotic than an F430 or something, which I'm starting to want. :/ Power/weight is so much worse than even a slightly modified 911 turbo though, rawr.

That's a good question I feel like 50s cars are rare but not exotic.
