Exotics are precious and highly respected. But have you ever saw someone harassing/disrespecting it (e.g. touching it continuously, sitting on it, etc.)? If you do, comment below!

Here's an example.

This security guard keeps touching the rear (and spoiler) of this Liberty Walk Lamborghini Aventador:

I once saw a 19-year-old teenager sliding his finger in the left side of this Ferrari 458 Italia while I'm taking pictures of it, and it causes the alarm to went off (no pics):

Before spotting this Ferrari 488 GTB, a security guard told me he had kicked out a group of kids, which he saw, leaning and playing around with the car (no pics):

I've seen kids leaning on some exotics before for pictures and plenty of people touching exotics. Nothing spectacular though.

I've said this in a comment thread before somewhere on this site, but here's my story from about 6-7 years ago:

I was in a local downtown area, gazing upon a gorgeous early 1940s Packard. Perfect condition- I had previously walked around it, seeing it was spotless, then sat on a bench about 15 feet away to appreciate it some more. Then, a mother with her daughter (mother maybe late 30s/early 40s, daughter maybe 4 or 5 years old) come walking by the car to cross the street. The mother is on her phone- busily wrapped up in a conversation with presumably a friend, while her daughter struggles to keep up due to the mother's fast walking pace. As they approach and walk past the Packard, the mother says to her friend on the phone, "Ugh, men take too good care of their cars." I'm not sure why she said this, because her friend over the phone can't see the car, but I suppose it was just a mindless spoken thought. Anyway, the point:

Her daughter had a toy in one hand, and the daughter, while walking by the Packard, ran her hand with the toy across the ENTIRE side of the car. I'm unsure if the toy contacted the car, but you could see the streak leftover from her hand. Very disappointing to see a kid being raised that way, and to see such a sign of disrespect. You can tell how that girl will be raised.

I garage owner in town (not my town, a bigger one nearby) has a Lambo Gallardo Superleggera. About a year or so back, I heard a rumor he took it to a show where some drunk guy tried to pee on it. I laughed of course, seeing how it was only a rumor. But if it did happen, and I saw it, I would be running by and punching square in the face.

This kiddo.

Not really an exotic, but still!

That last one's just bad. I also have an related question: Have any of you been disrespected for being a "carspotter?"

I haven't gotten any of that yet... i have gotten people laughing. This one time I was taking pictures of a 458 and these people walked by and were like "Oh wow he is taking pictures of cars. Professional!" (I had a big camera so that probably added to it). And before the people walked by the valet guys (they were really chill) were joking around saying "Pictures will be $10". Overall I haven't had any hate, just people laughing and joking.

Once I was at the Ferrari dealer taking pics and this guy was in there buying a car. He had his small kids with him, and he let them just run around the dealership chasing each other around the cars. At one point his daughter was literally just slapping the side of a LaFerrari for no reason. None of the employees said anything, I guess because he was a customer, which sucks for whoever purchased the LaFerrari.

Also the Bijan Veyron on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is probably the most abused Bugatti on the planet. When I was there, a family decided to take a picture of their three kids all sitting on the front of it, feet off the ground. When they were getting down, one of them made sure to "fall" and give the car a good slap to catch herself.

Unbelieveable.

Today I just saw a foreign visitor takes pictures on a Gallardo in Plaza Indonesia, but also proceeds to SPIT on an AM DBS Superleggera parked right beside it.

That's got to be the craziest one so far!! Can't the cops be called for that or the owner wasn't watching?

He already got away before the security had time to act.

I mean I'd much rather somebody spit on my car than sit on it. You can always just rinse it off.
