    Tour De France Blu Ferrari 458 Spider pulling out of Ballantyne country club in South Charlotte spotted while driving my Tour De France Blu 458 Spider down Johnston Road. Wish I had spotted it sooner and I would have pulled over to talk to the owner and wish I had gotten a picture of the two cars together.

    Just calling what I see! I hadn't been in Charlotte in several months, so I just cruised around a bit on Saturday after the show. I forgot to mention that right after I turned back onto Providence after taking some pics of all the Lambos, I saw an orange McLaren 12C Spider followed a few cars later by a white Aston Martin Vantage cruising down Providence just north of 485 at about 4:15p. Tops down on both :cool:

    Today in Cary:
    -Blue Porsche 991.2 GT3 Touring on Kildaire Farm outside of the Lochmere area around 5:15p. First one I've seen in person, wish I could have grabbed a pic but it was going in the opposite direction.

    Good chance that was one of my bosses. He was in that area about that time and has one.

    While we await pics of the Bugatti, here are a few notable sightings.

    Sunday, April 7th, in Raleigh:
    -White Alfa Romeo 4C Spider parked on Hargett St near West St at about 6:30p.
    Lots of interesting cars parked along Glenwood Ave including a black Lamborghini Gallardo with a gated manual, black Maserati GranTurismo Cabriolet, white Maserati GranTurismo Sport Cabriolet, silver Fisker Karma, white Fisker Karma with white wheels (strange to see two of these parked around the corner from each other), white Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, and a camo-wrapped Jaguar XKR.

    Saturday, April 13th, in Raleigh:
    -White Lamborghini Huracan Performante parked along Glenwood near Solas at about 10p. Pretty sure it's the same one I saw a month or so back on Falls of the Neuse.

    So many cars out lately I can barely keep up.

    Monday, April 22nd:
    -Red Lamborghini Urus hauling tail on 440 near North Hills in Raleigh at 2p! First one I've seen outside of shows.

    Tuesday, April 23rd:
    -White Aston Martin DBS Volante parked away from everyone at Whole Foods on NC 55 in Cary at noon! Arguably one of the best-looking cars of all time, and I hadn't seen one in person prior to this.

    Wednesday, April 24th:
    -Orange second-gen Bentley Continental Supersports cruising up US 321 just north of Hickory of all places at around 5:30p.
    -Caught a glimpse of a white McLaren, either 12C Spider or 650S Spider, on a bridge crossing I-40 on the south side of Hickory as I cruised by on the interstate a little while after seeing the Bentley.
    -Silver Fisker Karma parked on Tryon St near Duckworth's in Uptown Charlotte shortly after 8p.
    -Yellow Lotus Elise at Bland and Tryon in South End in around 8:45p.
    -Matte grey Lamborghini Huracan LP580 Spyder parked at O-Ku in South End a few minutes later.
    -Dark murky blue Lotus Elise on Morehead at College around 9:15p.
    -Black Lotus Evora S parked on Davidson St in NoDa near the Y at around 10p. Strange seeing three different Lotuses in the same night.

    Thursday, April 25th:
    -Had to take one of my relatives to an appointment in the University area of Charlotte at 2p, and I heard something scream past on US 29 that sounded exactly like a V12 Lambo. Never could see what it was though.

    Friday, April 26th:
    -Burgundy late-model first-gen Aston Martin Vantage parked in downtown Davidson shortly before 2p.
    -The same red Urus as mentioned earlier parked behind a white Lamborghini Huracan LP580 outside of Oak Steakhouse in Raleigh at about 9p.

    Saturday, April 27th:
    -White Chevy C7 Corvette ZR1 parked at La Farm in Cary around 1:30p. Had the full aerodynamic package and the proper seven speed manual transmission. :cool:

    Tuesday, April 30th:
    -Grey McLaren 12C Spider with the top down on Duraleigh at Edwards Mill Rd at a little after 11a.

    Rosso 488 Spider turning onto 485 near the med center in Pineville yesterday (5/27) around 11 am or so. Had vanity tags that said something to the effect of 'okay to look'.
