The Financial District (and Tribecca and the WSH adjacent) in DT Manhattan is a great locale for car watching. Props to the NYC big-leaguers who don't ride around in the back of a generic black town car! A lot of great RR's. I got lucky and saw 2 phantoms in one day: one from two very different eras in the car's history. I saw a mint Porsche 959 in Beverly Hills once -- I can't believe I love a car from the 80's that much.

you wont see the most Aston martin one-77s anywhere because only 77 of them were made, and i beleive one of the 77 was destroyed in a car accident as well.

now Bugatti would be a treat and i believe los angeles would win for Bugatti scenery in america/Canada.

But Bugatti are more present in Europe and the middle east way more then america.

Yeah. I dunno if everyone just missed my post, but... yeah, I took all of those pictures in BH's Golden Triangle over the course of a few days. These were just the ones that were parked. Every day, I see Rolls drop tops, all manner of Ferrari's - Enzo, 458 Italia, FF, California, and not to mention older models... all manner of Lambo's... AMG's are as common as Camry's anywhere else.

um what are you talking about??? you pretty much explained the scenario of manhasset mall which is in long island - suburb of nyc on the east coast

most people on the east coast specifically new yorkers, and new jersey folks keep their exotics in florida anyway. If we had the weather like you guys we would keep them here.

i went to miami and saw a lot of exotics with ny, and nj plates but that was in miami so i cant say i saw them in nyc.

range rover? range rovers are common anywhere period lol. in fact I would say among the black population here in Brooklyn the most bought luxury suv is the range rover, and porsche cayenne.

But the range rovers price range doesnt really show your making money. A middle class person can afford a 60k - 80k range rover.

i view exotics cars as cars that are 100,000k+ and are not affordable by the huge amount of americans in the country.

for the most part amg arent really that expensive if we are talking "exotic". The true expensvie amgs are the sls, sl, and all the amgs for the s class, and cl class.

but in a rich area amgs, m series, s series for audis, and f series for lexus can be spotted everywhere since a good portion of them are under 100k.
