Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

You guys gotta be kidding me. Living in the affluent suburbs of Rockville, MD there are a TON of rare cars here. I've seen 2 Ferrari F360s, 1 F430. I've seen a Carrera GT, and ALOT of 911s. There's even 2 Supra turbos. And in nearby Gaithersberg we have a couple R33 GT-Rs. There's a kid at my school who drives the 2006 SRT-10. And in nearby Potomac, there are a ton of Lotus Elises and Exiges. I know of at least 5 BMW M5's, and 2 BMW M6's, and I got video of the flyby. Corvettes are too common on our area, at least 20-30. I also saw a 2006 Ford GT flyby down Rt. 28. ALOT of rare cars in this area.

ignoring that there never was an 8 series M car.
and what is a Carrera S Turbo?
997 car? Is it a Carrera or a Turbo?

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

In the late 80's there were 850's produced that was hated by the traditional BMW following since it did away with the front gril which abondoned it's aircraft heritage. 850c, 850ci & 850 csi and even fewer 850 //M. c & ci had v8 and the csi & //M came with v12's. I've got photos with my Camera phone if need be that I can send. I'd post them here but don't know how. I am willing to admit that I'm off on the Porsche...never really got excited by them.

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

not quite.
the 840 was the V8 car, the 850 was the V12 car.
no car was badged M8 or 850 M or whatever unless the owner bought one and stuck it on himself. Or it could be another case of you guys getting differently badged cars to us again.

edit.
my bad.
found 'em.
Never knew the CSi was ever badged as an M car.

No prob! When I saw the car it took me 4 months of searching to found out what it was! Had the BMW badge but looked like no other BMW. Some carnut on Carspin (name of Farris?) (from Syria I think) clued me in.

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

Well, I've seen a black DeTomaso Pantera, which is pretty rare. I've seen the Porsche Panamera last winter, and the E90 M3 a year ago. Ferraris are quite common here, so if it isn't an F40, 50, 575, Enzo etc it's not worth noticing. I have seen a Ford Mustang GT500 '07 and I was once passed by a black Gallardo.

If you guys want more and I see more I'll let you know, where I live these cars drive around like it's nothing, I see exotics literly every day.

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

Oh yeah and one of my favorites, the actual Jaguar from the newest Austin Powers movie, I asked the guy and he said it was the real one, has the SHAGuar stuff and the British Flag paint job!

There was a Bugatti Veyron at a dealership where my friend works but I can't count that, there's this place called Troy Motor Mall and they have like EVERY car dealership, one guy has only exotics and you CAN'T pass by that area without seeing at least 2 very nice exotics.
