Best Places to Spot Exotic Cars

Oct 09, 2012

Written by Austin M. (Ferrari F4 0)

Many of us like to go spotting. We may walk downtown, sit on a curb for a few hours or even chase down cars. The problem is, you never know what you might see. Some days you may have a good day, with lots of spots, or some days you may be out there for hours and not even see a Corvette. Here is my guide of where to spot.


Car Wash:

Car washes are great for spotting, because everybody wants their cars looking nice and clean. The best time to go is on a nice, warm day. Sometimes you may have to wait, but hey, it will be worth it if a Gallardo pulls up.

Fancy, Expensive or Famous Restaurant:

The more money you have, you can eat at some famous restaurants. If you are ever driving around with nothing to do, check out some restaurants on the weekends. Sometimes the owner has an exotic, when I was in Switzerland the owner of a restaurant had a Aston Martin. Every night I would walk down to the Restaurant, some nights an Evora, some nights a Ferrari F430. You never know what you might see.

Hotels are a great place to spot, every night there might be something different. If you live in a place where the exotics only come around on the weekends, go on a Saturday evening. Also look for big name Hotels, not a $50 per night hotel. Some hotels don't like people walking around taking pictures, so be careful.

Certain Street:

Every town/city has that one certain street where an exotic car is always parked. These streets are either:

1. A very busy, popular street where people will see his/her car and get attention or

2. The opposite of the above, a side street, where its not very busy and people don't see his/her car, so people don't take pictures, or touch the car. 

To see these cars in these places, you often have to go a certain time of the day, usually on the weekends.

Major Highway:

Highways are a great place to spot, but they often require lots of patience. I like to sit and wait for cars to drive by, as I find that if you wait long enough, the cars will come. It also depends on where you live, maybe sitting beside the highway just doesn't work for you. Another option is if you are a passenger in a vehicle, always keep your camera ready, pointed at the opposite side of the highway. If that's a great way to spot for you, always keep a spare pair batteries handy.

Golf Courses:

Golf courses are a great place to spot. Here you are more likely to find a luxury car, such as a Bentley or Rolls Royce, but you never know what you may find. Try to go on a weekend. Every man loves his golf!

So please keep these tips in mind, but remember, you are never certainly going to spot a car in these locations, because we have good days and bad days. Good luck!

A good coach will think this through carefully ahead of time, and lay out each position for each inning, including bench time. As requested, you now have the ability to delete contacts from the app by swiping and deleting.

I agree ThePattonTank, but in my (minimal) experience, it scares the drivers of Ferrari 458 Speciales, when they have Marine Veteran plates, and you hop out of your car at a stop light to thumbs-up them! We were cruising on the highway, and to my suprise, my friend says "Ferrari!". I lean over to see whats going on, and behold!, there's a Ferrari staring back at me! For the next two miles, we tail it, because heck, its a Ferrari 458 Speciale, and we're on a highway. Its what you do! Then a miracle happened...THE LIGHT TURNED RED! I had forgotten my camera, so I asked my friend if he had a cellular phone on him. He didn't, but undeterred, I leaped...not out of the car, ran over, gave him two thumbs, and then when the light turned green, I got back to the car, and tailed him some more. Once we passed WalMart, he frantically found a gap to pass the Chevy Envoy blocking him (I imagine that an Easter-egg-blue minivan following you with two gleeful men, and the woman who owns the 'Easter Egg', as I shall refer to it, could be worrisome), he hit the throttle, and rocketed out of sight. A bit too fast for The Easter Egg to keep up.

Surprised no one mentioned taking pics of the cars on the roads leading to the coffee and car events. In big cities, there's almost one every weekend.

If you can safely chase down an exotic car without endangering yourself or other motorists or pedestrians, I say DO IT. You will be amazed by how nice exotic car owners tend to be. I live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania (Southeast part of the state, about an hour from Philly). Last week I followed a BMW i8 into a gas station and it turns out the owner, a gentleman in his 50s or 60s, and his wife had driven all the way from Pittsburgh (about 5-6 hours from my area by car) and were looking for a brushless car wash. The guy gladly let me photograph his i8 and I directed him to the nearest brushless car wash to clean his beautiful automobile.

I also chased down a Maserati Ghibli limo while running an errand for one of the bouncers at the bar where I work. To date it is my highest-rated spot!

Here in, Nafplio, Greece, there are two 5* hotels: Nafplia Palace and Amfitryon, but they rarely have something to spot (once per month or rarer). When they do, though, there is pretty good stuff like Corvette, Aston Martin, Ferrari and many more. The biggest combo I could remember is almost ten years ago in Nafplia Pallace, where there was a Continental GTC, Vantage, yellow 996 turbo, probably a DB9 and a Lamborghini too, as far as I can remember. In Amfitryon, there was a Corvette C6, Phantom Drophead Coupe and 2003 Techart Magnum a few days ago. Except for the hotels, the most supercars can be found in the town's harbour.
