Saw the new Bentley suv on the way to the gym yesterday. Middle aged mom driving kids around. Crazy.

Spotted a McLaren P1 last week in Bumbleberkeley, York County, PA of all places.

I was on my way to a meeting for work and just spot it peaking out from behind a truck at a stop sign, and while I couldn't quite identify it at first, the profile screamed "this is something ridiculous." It ended up behind me then (on what just so happens to be one of my favorite driving roads around here) and I was able to tell it was a McLaren from the facia, and not the cheap one either. Since I'm  bit out of touch with the current crop of hyper cars, I had to look it up when I got back to he office, but it was definitely a P1.

Unfortunately, the driver was just putting along, but still cool to see. I'm sure that's the most expensive car I've ever seen in the wild.

In reply to Furious_E :

Are you sure? I’ve seen a gray 720s around town recently. Even my sister sent me a picture asking what it was. 

Mine of my employees said he saw a P1 but later sent me a picture, it was just a 570... just.

It's been a while, but I couldn't find this thread. Monday was the funeral of Bud Smail, for those familiar with the name, he was the namesake and owner of about 6 dealerships, all different makes. I got stuck at a redlight as his procession went past the dealership. 

First car behind the hearse was a brand new NSX, two cars behind that a new Bentley coupe, then a G wagon, some very loud Crammits, a random Hyundai Excel, then a handful of Vettes. All in, took 3 redlight cycles for the whole procession to pass through, almost all shiny new models with random bits of strange old stuff thrown in. 

Nothing extremely rare or strange, but to see all of them in a row was quite impressive.

Coming home last night, I was stopped in the center lane of an offramp.  A Focus or something stops next to me.  It's a long light, I notice that the headlights look kinda funky to be a Ford.  Is that a Kia or something?

 

And then I notice that they have what looks like a laptop screen on the center of the dash.  Huge, and horizontal, not vertical like a mounted tablet.

 

I look at the wheels to see a logo.  It's a Tesla.  So this is what a Model 3 looks like, neat.  I've seen tons of the P85/P90/P100 cars but never a Model 3 upclose.  (Did see a few in Michigan a couple weekends ago)

 

After the light turned green, I noticed that it had Maryland plates.  So someone drove a new Tesla from Maryland somewhere to Cleveland.  Neat.

 

(Still doesn't beat the Model X 120D that I saw before they were released to the public, with California manufacturer's plates, in the middle of winter)

I see this guy around every now and again but this is the first time it's been sitting still so I could take a picture. I love this van so much.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a Unicorn or not since he is my neighbor and I see him driving it every day, but last week I saw him hauling a bunch of crap to the dump with the Bentley.

I saw so many Model 3s in Ontario back in July, I figured they must be common by now.

Saw a few high-end sports cars/supercars while I was there: A Ferrari 360 Challenge car, a regular 360, a 458, a Lambo Gallardo Spyder, and a 911 GT3. Also everyone and their dog in Newmarket now has a Porsche Cayenne.

I was driving to Wendy's for a Frosty with my 3 year old, and she says, "Whoa, cool race car."  There happens to be a black NSX in a parking lot as we're driving past.  I was proud, but I made the mistake of asking, "The black one by your window?"  Her response, "No the orange one."  I never saw an orange car.  It was probably a Cobalt.  I have failed as a parent.

Those side windows look to be about the same size as I had on my old Econoline conversion van.

Saw a kind of aggressive looking SUV in my mirror on the PA turnpike yesterday, turned out it was a Ford Edge ST with manufacturer plates.  Not exactly a unicorn, but not something we see often out this way..

Couldn't get pics of my own, but saw one of these today:

It actually looked better in person than in pics.

Very cool, my old man was on the Allante' project back in the day. I saw one in St Ignace a few weeks ago.
