    Ok so while your out an about in your car what Rare cars have you come across on your travels. I see loads of Ferrari and Porshes round here so I coudn't call them rare. But I don't very often see a Lambo or an Audi R8. So what Rare cars have you seen on your travels?
    I was out yesterday and drove by the legendary Metro 6r4. That is the first time i'd seen one actually driving on the road. I do see the odd TVR too....

    I saw a D Type Jaguar the other day locally. It sounded great - it was the one with the huge lump in the back like a vertical tail wing.

    Round where I live theres a lot of very well off people, I frequently see some amazing cars near my house:

    R8
    Ariel Atom
    F430 Scuderia
    Diablo GT-1
    DB-S
    1979 AC 3000ME of which only 70 odd were sold
    some ancient rolls and bugattis (the type worth 3 or 4 million)
    shelby GT500
    Sherman tank

    I witnessed the atom overtake 6 cars in one go on a straight just about long enough for a normal car to slip past an OAP in their rover
