    I'll go for a joyride around Raleigh once or twice a week on my way home from work, but other than that I just report what I see on my daily journeys. From my experience there are definitely more exotics in Charlotte than the Triangle, but the exotics here are "more" exotic. Some of my friends in Charlotte have mentioned seeing a few 720Ss around, and I suspect they will become more common with the new McLaren dealership there.

    One of my coworkers mentioned seeing a blue F12 on Cary Pkwy earlier this week (think he said that on Wednesday, can't remember for sure though).

    Spotted a black Lamborghini Gallardo outside of Sullivan's tonight in Raleigh at around 9:45. It was a little rough, but the gated manual was nice to see!

    There were a lot of scratches and the front bumper had a bit of damage on it (looked like it might have gotten caught on a parking block). Must be driven a ton, although I hadn't ever seen it before. I am sort of wondering if this might be the same Gallardo I used to see around downtown Raleigh every few months though. It was also black with a gated manual, but it had terrible-looking chrome wheels on it. Last time I saw it was over five years ago, parked just down the road from where I saw the one in my last post. Any Raleigh-area users know either of these cars?

    ^This is the Gallardo I saw numerous times years ago around Raleigh.

    This past Friday my brother-in-law stated he saw a blue F355 somewhere in Upstate, SC, but that it had no fenders and looked like it was potentially someone’s project.

    yeah.... I think my comment was a little "tongue in check" for those who misunderstood. The car had just left our shop...

    Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but if we weren't over 150 pages into this thread, I might start a "Non-Ferrari Exotic Car Sightings" for other cars.

    Or the thread title could be changed.
