    Weather has been terribly cold for the past month or so, temperature stayed around 8 to 12C (thats considered to be freezing for HK standards) with no sunshine. Finally, over the weekend the sun came out with the temperature back up to 15 to 18C; and you know what that means for the exotic car owners!

    Heres what I saw over the weekend:
    - Burgundy Red Pagani Zonda F (owner of big HK Animation company)
    - White Gallardo SE and 612 (owned by a friend)
    - Titanium 512TR
    - Black Murcielago
    - Red 430 and 430 spider
    - Yellow Gallardo
    - couple of Exiges
    - couple of R35 GTRs

    What have you spotted?

    That will be a seriously busy thread!
    I remember seeing at least ten Ferraris and plenty of other good stuff in the few days I was there last time and that was without the Sunday morning drive!

    Thats one of my customers cars, the wheels are actually from Autoart and the wing is from Novitec, I would have painted the wing yellow myself but he does love the look of the black wing, same on his older 360 and strad.

    Great car, the HGTC exhaust is really a big step up from the standard exhaust isnt it. I dont think i've ever seen a metallic grey 612 on the road before, looks very nice.

    That yellow wanna-be-Scud F430 is so cool. She will fool the people around I bet.

    True say. I remember Luca De'montezemelo (sp?) was actually there that year from ApeGen's picture. Probably the last time an important Ferrari figure showed up in a HK launch that I know of.

    Jean Todt in HK quite often but on personal business with Michelle. Luca was at 599 launch in Shanghai. Jean Todt was at 612 launch in Shanghai which is where he met Michelle

    I've seen a black 328 GTS about.. can't be too many in Hong Kong!

    I've seen quite a lot of Ferrari around.. not quick enough with the camera.

    I remember a red 360 spyder on the south side with a dent in the door :(
    and a yellow 430 being driven by a lady near Central.

    I havent seen too many older Ferrari's around except for one white 512BB, cool car.

    Yellow 430 driven by a lady? Interesting, ive seen a yellow 430 with the plate number CL17 but i doubt thats her :D
