The Cars Spotted Appreciation Thread

This is right up there for me, best colour by far.

There’s room in my lottery garage for a Rosso Corsa F355 in manual, right next to my Rosso Corsa F40.

Anything from Maranello after 1999 just doesn’t cut it for me.
I think it would be the first car I'd want to buy and drive if I won the lottery, completely perfect.

I saw a LY 182 here in Jeddah earlier. Couldn't get a picture unfortunately though. Didn't expect to see one of them!

Spotted this the other morning.
Don’t even know what it was! 488?
I’m lost with Ferrari’s since the 458

Sounded epic even in slow traffic

Saw an old Jag SS100 on the motorway but couldn't get a pic, never seen one before.

Was behind a Merc earlier with a stumpy looking back, got closer to see that it was an A series, A200 to be exact, didn't realise they made a sedan version, looked odd, also didn't get a picture but it is one of these.

I think that looks better than the hatch to be honest. The rear of the hatch hurts my eyes.

A purple flip Porsche 991 GT3 earlier, with reg GT03 XBT. It looked fantastic!

And the other day a woman driving a Yellow V reg Golf 'Colour Concept' Convertible with yellow centre Recaro's and BBS wheels. I've not seen one like that in years.

I always wanted a yellow colour concept, but the Mk3, with a VR/R32 engine swap.

The wheels are like rocking horse s**t now! I remember 'back in the day' when they were about £500 a set (whenever they came up for sale, usually because they were either nicked, or the geezer had put Rondell's on)

Yeah I remember that too. They were quite a popular mod on normal Escorts, RS Turbos and Saph Cossies and the like, but the prices have gone mad for all that stuff now.

ford did some wheels on the Escort Gti that looked similar to the escort cosworth wheels, but I don't think they were as wide. I've seen these on ERST's but never seen proper escort Cosworth wheels on anything other than Cosworth's (escort and sierra).

Well other than the van above.

There was also a company that made replica escort Cosworth wheels in 18" size. They looked much better than the standard 16's.

I always preferred them on the RS option seven-spoke wheels myself, especially the diamond cut ones. Didn't think the curvy spokes of the Cosworth wheels suited the RS Turbo ever so well.
