A Petrolhead’s Paradise: Pt. 2

It’s the Canada Day long weekend here in Canada; and if you ask me, there’s nothing better associated with a long weekend than awesome cars!! Summer long weekends are made for cruising, and now that I have a beautiful car of my own I appreciate them even more. There are multitudes of old muscle cars and vintage trucks driving around on weekends like this where I live– all awesome in their own right. But I do think it would be a great experience to visit England on a bank holiday weekend, and marvel at all the supercars that would surely be seen there!

In Part One of this post, I introduced you to many of the interesting and exotic cars I’ve seen on the streets of London. I hope that Part Two will be even more impressive– motoring in England is very different from North America, and it’s one of the reasons I enjoy trips across the pond so much!

This Kensington Ferrari wasn’t getting anywhere fast in the rush-hour traffic. But, there are few things more eye-catching than that Ferrari red…

This loudly-coloured Lamborghini made quite a racket outside our window one afternoon. It sat in the road for a few moments, revving its engine, and then drove off.

Walking home one day, I saw this in a row of cars… a Volcano Red McLaren MP4-12C!

There are few cars more exclusive or well-thought-out than a McLaren. It was a privilege to see one so close in person

I marvelled and marvelled at this beautiful machine, along with several other passers-by! It’s surprises like this that make the streets of England such an exciting place.

  1. Did you hear of the gold high performance cars given a ticket for a parking offence on one of London’s streets? Belonged to a sheik I believe. The cars were literally Gold!
