    WOAH! I know of an all-carbon Senna that gets trailered to various car shows around Charlotte (sadly it is never actually driven), but never heard of a white one, at least not in the Charlotte area. Any idea if it's a local car???

    Yesterday, January 6th, in Raleigh:
    -Orange Huracan LP610 with a huuuuuuge wing at Lifetime on Falls of the Neuse Rd about 3:30pm.

    Lamborghini Urus in Verde Ithaca this morning on Park Road in Charlotte. Don't know if the white Senna is local... didn't see the rear plate to see if it was NC or SC... hopefully it is local and will start showing up at various gatherings.

    Saturday, Jan 18th, in Cornelius:
    -Stumbled upon a group of British cars at The Harp & Crown plaza around lunchtime. Two V12-powered E-Types, an Elan, a Vantage, and a couple of other older British roadsters were scattered throughout the parking lot.

    Sunday, Jan 19th, in Charlotte:
    -Orange Porsche 991.2 GT3 with a proper manual transmission parked away from everyone at the Southpark Mall around 1:30pm. Saw it from about half a mile away and had to pull in for a closer look, me favorite car I've seen this year so far.
    -Lime green Lamborghini Urus pulling out of Whole Foods a few minutes later. I think it might have been Trai Turner.
    -Silver Karma Revero GT cruising around South End on Tremont around 3pm. Never seen one of these before.

    -White Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder at the Metropolitan around 3:15pm.

    Guys....I don't think Charlotte is a Ferrari city anymore.

    Saturday, Feb 1st:
    -Blue Lamborghini Huracan Performante tuned by Underground Racing parked behind the Design Center in South End at about 1pm. About an hour later after I ate lunch, I noticed an orange Huracan parked a little ways down the street from the Perf. By the time I walked over to where it had been parked, the owner was leaving with some of his friends that had been parked around the corner (all in all the group consisted of the Perf, Huracan, two R8s, and a 720S. When I took the pic, they were waiting on the Performante).
    -Blue McLaren 720S parked next to a white 720S parked next to a black Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series at the Southpark Mall a little after 3pm.
    -Black Porsche 991.2 GT3 RS absolutely howling up South Blvd into uptown about 4pm.

    Sunday, Feb 8th:
    -Yellow Lamborghini Gallardo at Phillips Place a little after 2pm today. Don't see many of these earlier Gallardos around anymore.
    -Different blue McLaren 720S at the Southpark Mall a few mins later.
    -Couple of exotics on South Blvd in South End around 3pm including an orange McLaren 570S, yellow Bentley Mulsanne, red Mercedes AMG GT, and dark grey Lamborghini Urus.

    Forgot to post this. Went back up to Raleigh last weekend for a few days.

    Friday, Feb 14th, in Raleigh:
    -Orange Lamborghini Huracan Evo in Glenwood South at about 8:30pm. First Evo I've seen on the streets, think I prefer the looks of the LP580 and 610.

    Wednesday, Feb 19th, in Charlotte:
    -Dark blue Lamborghini Urus turning into the Ikea plaza around 4pm yesterday.

    It would be nice to see at least a few Ferraris out and about for a change!

    Someone must have heard me about the lack of Ferraris, lol.

    Today in Charlotte, while running errands:
    -White Lotus Evora leaving the Southpark Mall about 1pm. Really loud, sounded absolutely amazing!
    -Silver Ferrari GTC4Lusso on Sharon at Fairview a few mins later. Almost didn't even see it, very subtle spec.
    -Orange McLaren 600LT Spider at Lifetime in Ballantyne a little after 3pm. Saw it as I was driving through the plaza, happened to be parked a few spaces away from the same ultraviolet purple Porsche 991 GT3 RS that I posted earlier. Also a silver C6 Corvette ZR1 in the parking lot.
    -Caught a glimpse of what turned out to be an orange Lamborghini Aventador Roadster in the valet at the Southpark Mall a little after 4pm. I had just parked to check it out when a black Huracan Performante left the mall and went screaming down Sharon Rd.
    -Red Ferrari 488 Spider at the Park Road Shopping Center at about 4:45 pm.

    I spotted an orange Aventador on Jim Wilson Rd. just off 521 on Sunday. I don't think it was a convertible, though...

    So many cars out today, it was ridiculous. I'll just list the important ones.
    -Black Aston Martin DBS Superleggera at Phillips Place at about 1pm.
    -Silver Ferrari California T at the Southpark Mall a few mins later.
    -White Lotus Evora (same one I saw last weekend) in the valet at the mall at the same time. Saw it later driving through South End. I know I mentioned this in my last post, but this car sounds so good that there's almost no point in talking about anything else.
    -Red Lotus Esprit V8 on Tyvola at Park Rd a few mins later.
    -Stopped by a car show at Sugar Creek Brewery for a bit, a red 488 Pista and black 458 Italia were doing their best to represent Ferrari.
    -Black Mercedes SLS AMG cruising around Southpark at about 4pm. Hadn't seen one of these in a long time.
    -White Porsche 991.2 GT3RS at Baku around the same time. A red Lamborghini Urus was leaving the parking lot when I saw it, and a white Gallardo LP560 Spyder happened to drive past at the same time.
    -Grey Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro at Sycamore Brewing about 4:30pm. Same one that was posted at the top of the page.

    My friend spotted a gray F8 Tributo in Charleston today. He couldn't see if it was on SC plates or get a pic, unfortunately.
