    No Ferraris to report, but several Lambos out lately.

    Monday, February 19th, in Charlotte:
    -Arancio Borealis Lamborghini Gallardo Bicolore parked at the Metropolitan at about 11:00 pm. No idea what it was doing there since everything was closed, but I happened to glance over as I drove passed and saw something low and orange through all the fog, so I pulled in and snapped a couple pics.

    Tuesday, February 20th, in Cornelius:
    -Nero Lamborghini Huracan LP580 heading down Catawba Ave sometime after 5:00 pm. No chance for any pics due to traffic.

    Friday, February 23rd, in Charlotte:
    -Bianco Lamborghini Huracan LP580 Spyder blasting around in South End around 10:00 pm. Happened to pull up behind it on Tryon St right outside of uptown a couple minutes later. First 580 Spyder I've seen.

    Tuesday, February 27th, near Salisbury:
    -Nero Lamborghini Huracan LP610 heading south on I-85 at about 4:00 pm or so. Think it was somewhere just north of Salisbury, but I didn't note the nearest exit.

    -The same grey California parked off Trade St at the edge of uptown at a little before 2:00.

    Saturday, March 10th, in Charlotte:
    -Silver Renntech-tuned Mercedes SLS AMG with carbon fiber aerodynamic bits at the Park Road Shopping Center around 11:45 am. Super nice owner, said he was considering buying a Ferrari before he found his SLS. Hardly ever see these around so it was cool to see.

    I'm about 99% sure I just saw a brand new Corvette ZR1 turning onto Pullen Rd from Western Blvd in Raleigh about 30 minutes ago. It was white and had a massive wing on the back, but I wasn't able to see the front well enough to tell for sure.

    -Black Lamborghini Aventador at the Ritz-Carlton at about 10:30 pm.
    -Red Acura NSX (current gen) pulled in a couple minutes later.
    -Grey Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster in front of The Capital Grill at about 11:00 pm.

    Also saw what I think was Michael Jordan's F12 uptown. It was blacked-out and parked in a small parking garage with a transparent garage door.

    Ironically I spotted yet another 550 in the same parking garage we were in tonight in downtown Greenville. This 550 was silver in color and a gated manual. Made me smile.

    Now that they are 25 years old and older, they are becoming less rare. I saw one of these in a rusty brown/red color in Fort Mill yesterday, and spotted what must have been the same car in almost the same spot today during my lunch break.

    Had to do a ton of driving around in Charlotte last weekend and saw so many nice cars, it felt like Motori Italiani. Lol

    Friday, March 30th, in Charlotte:
    -Matte yellow Lamborghini Aventador SV at South and East Blvd around 8:30!!! I had literally just pulled in to the gas station at that corner to fill up when I heard it wailing down South Blvd. Turned to see what it was, and once I saw that it had to stop at the light, I walked over and grabbed a few pics while it was stopped.
    -White Lamborghini Gallardo LP550 at some nightclub in South End across the street from the Atherton Mill construction at about 9:00.
    -Black Lamborghini Huracan LP610 at Ink & Ivy around 10:00.

    Saturday, March 31st, in Charlotte:
    -Red Ferrari 488 Spider at the Ritz Carlton around 8:30. First one I've seen in person; looked alright, but I think I like the 458 a bit more. A black first-gen Audi R8 V10 with a silver blade drove past while I was checking it out.

    Sunday, April 1st, in Charlotte:
    -The same white Lamborghini Gallardo LP550 at The Diamond in Plaza Midwood around 7:00. Also saw a brand new M5 at a restaurant around the corner.
    -Grey Lamborghini Aventador on Bland St about to turn onto South Blvd in South End at about 7:40.

    Tuesday, April 3rd, in Charlotte:
    -Matte orange Lamborghini Huracan Vorsteiner Novara at Nova's Bakery in South End at about 12:30.

    Sunday, April 8th, in Cary:
    -Yellow Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder at Whole Foods around 5:45. First time I've seen it around here, think the owner used to have a dark blue 355 Spider I saw parked here a couple years ago. Strangely, a yellow Porsche 996 GT3 pulled in a couple minutes after the Gallardo left.

    Wednesday, April 11th, in Charlotte:
    -Grigio Ferrari California parked in a lot on Trade St just after 2:00. Managed to snap a pic of it as I drove past this time.

    Friday, April 13th, in Charlotte:
    -Red Ariel Atom 3 at Moo & Brew around 9:30 pm. Don't see too many of these around.

    ^Forgot to mention, also on Friday the 13th, a black Huracan LP580 heading up Tryon St in uptown Charlotte around 12:30.

    Saturday, April 21st, in Raleigh:
    -Think I saw the same yellow Gallardo Spyder from my last post heading up Glenwood Ave just north of Peace St around 8 pm. Saw the white Aventador Roadster in Glenwood South a minute or so later as well.

    Saturday, April 28th, in Charlotte:
    -Grey Fisker Karma at the EpiCentre a little after 9:00 pm. Haven't seen one of these in years, always thought they looked a little weird but are definitely cool to see.
    -Grigio Ferrari F430 at Fahrenheit 451 around the same time. First F430 I've seen in ages; still one of my all-time favorite Ferraris.
    -White Lamborghini Gallardo LP550 at Ink & Ivy at about 10:00 pm. Same one I've seen around a couple times now.

    Monday, April 30th, in Cornelius:
    -Rosso Ferrari California T parked near the Allen Tate building at Catawba and Jetton at around 2:30.
