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!

What kind of AMGs?

There's a really busy street in Pittsford, and in the summer cars are ALWAYS an that street. The mall by me is also a good place to see good cars. There's also a five star hotel by me, and they don't really care if you go to take car pics. I went in the summer and saw 8 AMG in one hour. The other day, my grandma went and said she saw a Maybach.

I have a long commute so I get tons of pics if I want to but most of the time, I am just too lazy. If I wanted, I can get a spot every other day, minimum, just on the commute, not counting all the cars around L.A. that you see everywhere.

As for owners, it's cool with most of them. I've been asked many times if people can take a pic of my car too and I always let them go as long as they want, but they usually feel bad and never keep me too long, maybe it's because I am always in a black suit with dark glasses on?

Unless the owner looks like a mafia member which has happenned twice (audi and BRZ)

Same, I don't take pics of car while an owner is in it, or I just try and take a secret photo, usually from a bad angle.
