Car Spotting In The 604

I’ve been posting a lot of car related blogs lately and it’s not about to stop!

Anyone who’s been to the Vancouver area will tell you that the people there love their cars. You see all kinds of things that you’ve never seen before, such as this Nissan Elgrand here.

A Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano looking surprisingly subtle while sitting in traffic.

Why yes, that is an S2000 towing a tiny trailer.

A little hard to see, but this Civic was rocking the old school S800 “Honda” emblem!

I remember seeing Plymouth Prowlers all the time as a kid but they’re a rare sight these days. Probably has something to do with what’s going on in this picture!

I absolutely LOVE Euro cars with JDM parts on them.

There’s just something about it that’s so right!

A very clean looking S14, and it’s left hand drive too!

I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a pink Mini Cooper before…

…and then there’s also this one that had a number of different pink accents. I actually quite like it!

One of the Volkswagen dealerships in downtown were using these lifts to save space in the parking lot which I thought was a good idea. Looks like Scooby and the gang were also in for some service!

I’ve always liked how RPF1’s can look so good on a stanced out car but yet look right at home on a track car like it was designed for.

Speaking of stance…

…this slammed G37 was looking mighty fine!

I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that Little Miss Sunshine just made me want one of these even more.

This one was looking pretty funky too.

After seeing a number of R34’s in Alberta lately, it’s made me realize just how massive the R35 is. It’s like Donkey Kong vs. King Kong.

A matte green military themed Gallardo sitting quietly at the top of Grouse Mountain.

I don’t really know my bikes that well but I really wanted to post this. Too bad the side mirror of the Mazda 5 I’m riding in is in this picture though.

A track ready looking BRZ passing by. I personally prefer the BRZ over the FRS, what about you guys?

I’m sure a lot of the locals will know who this ITR belongs to!

Holy 1997.

This Bentley Muslanne is probably one of the most baller cars I’ve ever seen…

…but I must say that I would probably choose this Rolls Royce Ghost over the Bentley any day!

Probably the most decked out Rav4 I’ve ever seen.

The SLR Mclaren still looks amazing after all these years, and rare too!

I’ve always wanted an xB, not sure I’d want one in bright in-your-face yellow however.

Another personal favourite of mine, the Maserati Granturismo! You actually see a lot of these out in BC, but rarely ever over in Alberta.

The Ferrari 456 Italia is such a pretty car. Without a doubt it will be one of Ferrari’s all time classics.

A blast from the past (sort of)! I think a lot of people will agree when I say that I very much prefer the older generations of Porsches.

I mean just look at them!

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the newer generations of the German supercar however. After all, they drive amazingly well!

I can’t even begin to describe how mean this SLS sounded cruising down the street.

I have no idea what this is (the styling, not the car), but regardless I can’t really say that I’m the biggest fan of it.

When done right, it’s supposed to give your car a “wire-frame” look.

Somebody help me because I am forgetting what this little JDM gem is called!

I’m going to change things up a bit as we’re going to be visiting a dealership this time, Open Road Lexus in Richmond.

Although I really wanted to drop by Ferrari and Lamborghini, I wasn’t able to fit either into my busy schedule for the week.

This is probably one of the nicest dealerships I’ve been in to date as it’s clean, very open, bright, and even has a little café!

I was glad to see a couple IS300’s in for service that day as well.

I was here for a couple of reasons…

…one being to see the mighty Lexus LFA!

This car is originally red but has been completely wrapped in a matte silver color by the guys over at SR Auto Group…

…who has also fitted some PUR Design 4OUR Depth rims all around.

Only super/hypercars can get away with extravagant designs like this!

While the LFA was all fine and dandy, the main reason I was here was just on the opposite side of the room. This one was too special to be just thrown into the rest of the post here so I have prepared a little highlight on it coming soon. Trust me you’re not going to want to miss this one!
