    Hi Guys

    Im not sure how to put this but from what we see in media and have a conception of mexico isnt it very dangerous to drive around in ferraris and lambos as there may be a chance of getting your car vandalised or you being kidnapped

    I see from the thread a lot of pics of nice cars around mexico

    Hello BAD 130Y.

    Most of the media you see about Mexico its kidnapping, drugs, poverty, etc. That´s what the news say about Mexico, but it is not as bad as they say, there will always be bad people in every big city, at least in Mexico City things are not that bad.

    People hang out with their cars, however there are not as many Ferrari or Lamborghini cars as in other countries but you can see them in the most expensive areas of the city, parked outside fancy restaurants or just driving by.

    I estimate there are around 600 Ferrari and 120 Lambos in whole Mexico.

    Regards from Mexico City,

    Daniel

    Agreed with Cayenne Turbo the situation is not as the media depicts. In any case it is generally not a good idea to draw attention to yourself.

    Having said that you can eventually find all sorts of sports and supercars. Near where I live it used to be that every weekend I saw a Ferrari or Lambo, now not so much.

    Are this cars confiscated and auction off ?

    Provides a nice revenue for local government. That's how they buy plenty of their equipment, etc
