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
We love to see a wild Figaro (one of two pink ones I saw)
A Renault Zoe with a very appropriate plate
A Chelsea bus
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.
The most suitable number plate and car for something parked outside the French Embassy
A cheeky little Vauxhall Ampera outside a hotel
I've been told this is a special Fiat 500
A lovely 992 911 in silver
Some stupid looking G Wagon
A very pretty looking 3 Series estate!
A very expensive Bentley
A big Rolls Royce
A bold spec of GTC4 Lusso
A Honda E - the star of the show (and a beautiful A2)
A Maserati which I have been told is expensive and rare
The second pink Figaro
This big 80s Merc which is supposedly quite special
And to finish it off, a white McLaren 570s (I think, they all look the same to me) outside a hotel
