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

Saw a Ford GT for the first time yesterday. Also, and much more interestingly, an old Merc Coupe that looked like the Gullwing from the front, but very different at the back. No idea what it was

I saw a Ferrari 360 Modena Spyder in a parking lot, and just in time cuz I got my new camera phone today. Took many pics. And much more interestingly, I saw the new BMW M5 at the BMW dealership in my city. I have no idea they even had released them in the US, let alone it being sold. I have pics on my phone, but I dont have the cable to transfer them onto my laptop.

And I got pulled over today for having my tags expired. and when the officer asked for the insurence card, that too was expired. So now I owe the city $112.00. Luckily he didnt count (or notice) the radar detector I had in the winddhield. Which is illegal to operate in MN.

I saw an Aston Martin DB9. But that is a guess cuz it was dark and I only saw the taillights. I opedned the door, and sure enough it sounded like a V12. So It was either that or a Vanquish. The DB9 is more likely around here.

Uhh, Vinnym86, those pics (other than the first one) arent really considered "sightings", as they are clearly in either showrooms or an auto show. And the last one is not a Murcielago, it's a Gallardo.

I saw this freakin awesome 2005 Mustang GT today. Except it had the paintjob the GT500 has (but this one was white w/ blue stripes) and called a G.T.350 L/D (in the same place and stlye as the GT500 has its mane on the side by the front wheels). It had like 18 or 19 in chrome rims, and the cobra badge. And it had the "intake" things that go where the triangluar glass would be. And also duel chrome exhaust pipes. I have pics on my phone, but I dont have any way to transfer them onto my computer. So I did the best I can describing it. Can anyone tell me what I saw? Is it some sort of factory GT, like a little brother to the GT500, or a custom built Mustang GT with aftermarket parts?

i guess not, after all thread is "rarest seen on the street" but i was excited none the less to see them, so i posted them. it was my first big car show anyway, and first time seeing these monsters up close. And the Lambo, ur right, my bad. stupid mistake on my part.
