Exoticspotter features supercars on the street ONLY, and the pictures must be of a high quality. Most of the pictures taken are in car dealerships by poor quality mobile phone cameras. Usually, only V12's images come out superb on average.

I second that.... I seriously thought about it. an now that i have got the chance i would request the moderators and the picture owners to allow me to post some eligible picture on Exoticspotter.com under the name of "TeamBHP".
Please raise any concerns.

Thanks

It must be too expensive to repair or soemthing, have seen better models around


err off topic


hey i saw two Porsche boxsters racing down the 15A-16A-Xpressway (noida) stretch yesterday.

Red boxster S, this look like as if it was just out of the showroom.
and a yellow 911 turbo (had a huge wing/spoiler on the back) convertible. this one was looking like 2-3yrs old model

well all delhi guys "BE ON RED ALERT" roam around that area with your camera's and click some snaps. u know the location now and as Bandit mentioned its not been moved for ages. so you'll definatly have some luck.

Guys the car that is mentioned is actually a Ferrari. It's an 80's 400i one of the most disappointing/worst models ever produced by the company. It has been standing there for a number of years and is owned by a garage owner who lives in the apartments next to the hotel. I had seen it running about 3 weeks back coming from Khan market and the engine is in a very bad state since the engine had gone bust and the guy had it rebuilt in his own workshop. The story also goes that he broke two pistons while rebuilding the engine and now it uses local pistons.

It was not running actually but just barely moving and the engine was popping and spitting flames even on near idle revs. It is as mentioned by somebody in a poor state since it has been lying neglected for a number of years and is usually found standing in the hotel car park. I had tried to take a picture with my cell phone but it was quite dark by then and both my car and the Ferrari were moving but the pic is still attached.

Nothing special to get excited about.

Yeah i met the car owne once at a friends workshop in khan market. The car is in a pathetic condition, and the owner was going on bragging about it as if people dont know anything about cars... all i said was 'yea sure!'
