An idiot's guide to supercar spotting in London

This is how my day of supercar spotting went...

As many of you will know, London is a big city, full of rich and busy people, so you’re bound to see some supercars right?

Well, I didn’t see the Lamborghinis and Bugattis I was promised but I wasn’t exactly disappointed. As you can see by the photos, I quite a large range of different cars. Not all of them super by conventional terms, but to me they were.

Now, I know most supercar spotters have these big fancy cameras but all I took with me was my iPhone, that is why the image quality is a bit crap on the long distance shots, but I tried my best.

So Ben, whereabouts in London did you go? Well, I went to what I perceive to be the obvious places to go supercar spotting in London. I tried Sloane street, Knightsbridge, The Dorchester, Mayfair, Chelsea. Everywhere I could think of which had a Pret and a Versace, but that turns out to be everywhere in London.

Another thing I learned was that in order to find all these cars, you have to be patient and go at the right time. This didn't work for me as I have no patience and didn't have any time to hang about so these are all I could find, but I am happy with my selection. AND I KNOW THEY ARE ALL IN PORTRAIT, I AM SORRY!

So, here’s what I saw:

This is quite possibly the best 911 I've ever seen btw

A Ferrari 488 with gold wheels and a pixelated face. Oh, and some old Rolls Royce I am sure John Coleman owned at some point.

    • I guess some might think that. I personally quite like them! (I must be a bit strange😂). Some models are worth upwards of $1M.

  • That purple Figaro must live at Kings cross as I saw it there too when I went to the London Motor Show last year 🤔
