    It has changed around this area there are so many exotics everyday pretty much everywhere now. Yesterday in a span of 3 hours I saw at least 15 between Waverly, Waxhaw and Pineville. Everything from f360, astons, 458s, mclarens, lamborghinis, and 488 spiders. Starting to get the itch to get another one I have been out of the game for a bit starting to shake when I see a nice exotic. At night around Marvin I hear crap loads of exotics cranking around with some real specific exhaust notes that catch my attention. I did visit Marshall Goodman in Ohio recently and saw a few that got my heart rate up.

    Monday, Aug 19th, in Charlotte:
    -White first-gen Bentley Continental Supersports parked at the Fresh Market plaza (51/Carmel) around 2:45pm. Hardly ever see these around.
    -Red Ferrari 488 Spider (I think) heading south on Rea near Ardrey Kell about 3:15pm. Might've been a 458, honestly couldn't tell because it was raining so hard.

    Tuesday, Aug 20th, in Charlotte:
    -White Ferrari California heading towards uptown on Independence near Sardis around 12:30pm.

    -White Ferrari California T turning onto Tyvola from FCI around 4pm. Unfortunately I didn't see it in time to grab a pic.

    Wednesday, Aug 28th, in Charlotte:
    -First-gen Audi R8 V10 with a multi-colored wrap heading west on Stumptown at US 21 in Huntersville around 4:50pm.
    -White Ferrari California with a blue wrap parked at a small plaza on US 21 just north of Harris Blvd at 5pm. Looks like it's driven by a chiropractor based on the wrap.

    Blue 458 or 488 Spider near the Harris Teeter in Weddington. Drove by too quickly to confirm the model.

    Was not TDF, looked like a bright greenish blue, like Abu Dhabi.
