    I'm going to Marbella in a few weeks and I've heard that Puerto Banus is always full of exotic cars. Does anyone have pictures of exotic cars (Ferrari, Lambo, other...) seen in Puerto Banus?

    Thanks

    Hi John,
    I've heard Puerto Banus is not a bad place to go see exotics. If you spot any Fcars, you might do me (and a lot of others here on the board) very happy by making an extra picture of the VIN plate(situated on the steering colom) or the serial number in the left hand bottom side of the windscreen(for the 430, Enzo and 612).
    Here's a little example.

    See the Spanish section and ask for Puerto Banús pics, i live in Málaga (55 km from puerto banús), Marbella area (San Pedro, Marbella, Puerto Banús) is the paradise for car fans i think is the second place (monaco is nº 1) in europe to see exotic cars. Best regards from Spain.

    Torremolinos is 40 km from Marbella, Marbella and their harbor (Puerto banús) is a nice place, very expensive but high quality, torremolinos is cheap and is good place to sleep an to go to discoteques, Benalmádena (near torremolinos) is now better place than torremolinos, i am hotel owner in Málaga (11 km from Torremolinos), if you want more info send me private message and i reply it. best regards from Málaga.

    I live 10 mins away from puerto banus and the cars there are the best. If you go there on a saturday night, you can see the best cars. People rent them for an hour and just run them around the port. I have about 300 photos of great cars there.
    every second car there is a porsche cayenne though. If you have a look around the underground car park in the square you'll see some nice cars aswell.
    There is also a car shop called salmanca motors about 10 mins past the port that sells all the top cars, like ferrari, aston martin and they are all on show. Have a look there.

    I go to Puerto Banús regularly for work. More than exotic cars, it is in fact full of posers, east european/russian bruisers and english larger louts.

    Yes indeed. It's a great place to spot exotic cars.
    I go often too, and I'll be there in a couple of weeks, but I'm going first to the world cup.

    Modena when are you going?

    I second what Antonio said, it's the paradise of exotic cars in Europe, after Monte Carlo.

    I saw this baby back in December, just aside of a F430 spyder.

    Does the Ferrari club of Andalucia(?) still meet every sunday? If they do I would appreciate any information from anyone. I think the picture was taken in Puerto Banus. Do they always go there?

    The Ferrari Club of Andalucia meets every sunday morning at around 11am at restaurant Toni Dalli situated between Puerto Banus and Marbella on "the golden mile".
    Toni Dalli is the chairman of the Ferrari Club and drives a Titan Grey 550 maranello.
    I've been twice to Puerto Banus (2004 and 2006) and have seen lots of F-cars over there, including an Enzo !!
    Don't expect to many cars at the sunday meeting, mostly around 10 F-cars are present added with some Lambo's and often also the Pagani Zonda.
    They sometimes drive to the Harbour of Puerto Banus but they sometimes choose to go into the mountains as well to have a drive.

    Puerto Banus is indeed the number two in Ferrari-spotting Europe, Monaco still is the place to be and is by far THE NUMBER ONE place.

    Greetz,

    I found the website for the club and there is a section that has all the members cars. It's members cars include 2 SuperAmericas, a 288 GTO, F40, F50 and 4 Enzo's! There is also a member that owns a Bugatti EB110SS!
    http://www.ferrariclubandalucia.com/

    I'm going to go to this meet. I'm not expecting to see an Enzo or anything but I would like to go and see what it's like.

    Everybody please keep posting any pictures of cars seen in Puerto Banus!

    Here's a picture of an EB110SS seen in Puerto Banus
