Default Exotics Spotted in my Neighbour's Forecourt - EDIT: Pics added for Ferrari Lovers!

Yesterday night:


Massive 21's on this lovely W221:


The Brabus D6 (W221) behind the RR Sport:


This morning (the D6 had left, and the Flying Spur is out of the visible range in this shot):


Enjoy...I sure did/am.

The standard cars include 1-2 S Classes (W221 and W220) , a Flying Spur, the CL 65 AMG and the Range Rover Sport.

The Phantom, the Brabus D6 and 21-inched W221 (AMG) were certainly a surprise. The owners are an Indian family...different cars for different members.

The house looks a bit tacky here, but then again, it's quite huge, worth around 3-4 million pounds. Plus, these people deal with cars/showrooms, hence they may not be paying for ALL the cars in the collection.

Ah well, whatever, it sure is eye (and sometimes ear) candy!

While an interesting picture, I'd be hard pressed to call anything by the RR an "exotic"...

Also, not sure how happy I would be if a picture were taken on my private property displaying the registration details of expensive cars.

Shouldn't the mods make the plates unrecognisable? Forums here in the UK have strict rules about this.

I wasn't too sure by what term to dub the cars for this thread. Exotics? Exquisites? Ultra-luxuries? Expensives? I stuck with exotic.

As for the number plates, I've acquired permission. They are family friends.

Default One for the Ferrari Lovers

How often would you expect to see a Nero F430 Spider in your neighbour's forecourt?



Not very.

Now, how often would you expect there to be two...in the exact same shade?



Stunning!


(p.s. No qualms about the plates on display)

Nice garage btw

Well spotted. Well, in the UK, all number plates by law must have black lettering/numbering over a white background on the front, and the same on a yellow background for the rear.

This is done for safety and visibility reasons.

For full information on UK number plates and some cool facts, check this page out: British car number plates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The one with a sunroof is a W221 Mercedes-Benz S320 CDI.

The black is an ML320.

Haha, not quite. These people own and run two showrooms, mainly dealing with Mercs.
