Rare cars: Two McLaren F1s, two Veyrons (one I had the pleasure of sitting in), a Zonda F Clubsport, an F40, a two-seater Minardi plus other F1 cars in the F1 street parade on Regent Street in Summer '04, Ford GT40, immaculate '66 Stingray (RARE in London), an XJ220 and others which I'll add as I remember them.

I saw a Mansory Conquistador (Mansory tuned RR Phantom),
An A1 GP race car (made noise like a fighter jet but went kaput after being driven for hardly half a mile),
Red F50, Black Veyron, Silver SLR, Red Enzo, Silver Zonda,
British American Racing Green Jag XJ220,
Blue Gumpert Apollo
All the above at the start of the Gumball 3000 in London in 2006
Following being driven in London at random times:
Blue Saleen S7
Silver SLR being pushed hard
Red Ferrari 250 GTO
Silver Ferrari 456 Shooting Brake (I think it must the only one in UK)
My fav has been the Silver Enzo..gave me goose bumps!! What a Wicked Car!!
Trying to remember others...

First, the Alpine and Packard (all models) aren't really rare cars. There were quite a few imported into India. Refer the Packards in India thread for the latter.
Second, the Pontiac firefly isn't a rare car either. It was some old Suzuki hatchback (made in Thousands) also rebadged as a Chevy and a Geo - all GM brands.
Which Baby ford are you talking about?
Lastly, the BMW 3 door you mentioned could be the Isetta (pic below) in which case it is really a rare car
