Default Cyrus43 goes berserk: Pics from the UK.

All these have been taken within 30 mins of me entering UK. Have seen more exotic machinery than all my years in India combined. Sadly, not a single Italian....

Lol! Thats like a true BHP-ian where ever you are and on the go!
I loved the Camero and the Escalade. I have developed a liking for the Mafia Car lately. Everyone from Sean Kingston to Shawty Lo seem to have it. I love yawl rappers.

Cyrus43, no offence brother, but other than the Astons,the Bentley and the 911's, none of the cars are actually considered exotics in UK or other parts of the well-developed world. The 500 is extremely common.
The Abarth is a nice catch, though.

@shamik, I know the 500 is not an exotic, but considering my love of the little Fiat, I clicked it anyways.

Anyways, Also saw the Carerra GT on the road. Red. And the coolest thing Ive seen yet, by FAR, is a HUGE powder blue Cadillac eldorado biarritz. It was so huge, that the smart car next to it seemed non existent.

I can seriously see your point. Thats a lot of serious machines in a really short span of time.
American Auto Center has a "020" area code number. I wish that was actually pune!

Nice cars spotted! Keep 'em coming...There are some very awesome UAE reg supercars like the Murci SV, Carrera GT and loads of Veyrons too. If you're in central London, it's not hard to spot those

@Cyrus43- Check out all the car showrooms on Park Lane. There is BMW, Mini, Porsche and a couple of other ones I can't remember. And if you want to look at some REALLY exotic metal, stand outside the Dorchester Hotel (also on park Lane). For die-cast models, you could check out Hamleys (One of the most famous toy stores in the world), and be sure to go to the Ferrari store. Hamleys and the Ferrari store are nearly across the road from each other. Both of them are on Regents street. I am sure you will go even more bezerk from there on. .
