New Range Rover Evoque in black and green swirl camo on Jumeirah beach road this morning. Destined to be its territory anyway!

Had quite a few spots last week.

Black Panamera in Doha closely followed by a F430. A Mustang in Ras Laffan and a new Dodge Challenger in Al Khor. On my way into Doha this morning at approx 5.30am a white Panamera shot past at warp speed.

Also seen a Mustard Yellow Aston DBS in Doha.

Saw my first DBS in the flesh last week - in classic Aston met greeny-grey. Lovely looking thing but it did look a little, well, small.

Also, spotted a black Z8 in the lakes - looked like an Alpina. I used to see one almost daily in Harborne, Birmingham so am never really flustered. But thinking about it I've never seen one anywhere else yet there are loads in Dubai.

OK guys - EAT MY GOAL.

Spotted in Max Garage (OK that's cheating I know): Ferrari 250 California Spider. At least I think it is. Looks way too good to be a replica, though I didn't dare open the bonnet to check underneath. Registration plate "250".

The only thing that makes me think it might not be the real deal is who on earth would walk away from their £6 million work of art and leave it without a team of armed mercenary guards in a dusty warehouse in Al Quoz? Not that I'm dissing Max (actually I think they do a pretty decent job on older cars), but it just doesn't compute.

I have heard stories that people leave their "expensive and rare" cars at MAX to be looked after (battery trickle charged, engines run etc) rather than leave them on ther driveways.

I probably shouldn't be saying this on a public forum, but I hope these people are not entrusting their priceless sports cars to be stored in a walk-in warehouse. Although there were plenty of mechanics around, they allowed me to prod and poke to my heart's content, no questions asked, though I was a bit shy about fiddling with the Ferrari for obvious reasons. The Ferrari was also on a ramp, suggesting there was some work needing to be done.

Wow, I would never store that car anywhere I couldn't observe it on a webcam 24/7 with an armed response team ready to spring into action.

The last time I was there, I also had a polite go at the workshop foreman for leaving my car with the keys on the dashboard. Come to think of it, I'm going to call them now to ensure they take extra care of my car....

That's been there for years; it was there when I was getting some bits sorted for the Blue Beastie in 2008.

I suspect it is a replica.

Boo hiss. If it is a replica, it's really very well done, though I confess I've only got photos of a real one to judge by.

Have seen it pootle down my road once about a year ago, so it must have been in and out of Max.

Spotted this morning passing the back of the Porsche building was a black Ferrari California. I really didn't like these when they first came out and seeing a red one did nothing for me, but in grey it looks good and in black it looks delicious

Spotted Tuesday morning on SZR: one of those Lamborghini 4x4 things from the 80s being driven at about 70kms due to the massive flat spots on all four tyres.

Still looked cool as feck though.

White Ferrari 458 in the showroom on The Pearl. I was busily licking the window when a white SLS pulled up beside me. I've seen glimpses of them before but i didnt realise how big it is! It dwarfed my car.

I'd still have the 458 though....i wish.

Saw a black Porka 964 cruising it's way to Abu Dhabi this morning, anyone from here?

You might have heard a thunderous roar, seen a flash of PH sticker and then felt a sonic boom at about 08:30 smile

Been a bit of a day for exotic spotting for me here in Dubai today.

Started with a lovely Creamy White Aston parked outside the Atlantis The Palm Hotel when I checked in and continued with a G55 AMG, Yellow AD plated Lambo G, Yellow 911 GT3, Black Phantom, 2 x Bentley GTs and 2 hideous Hamann kitted X6s all at the Mall of the Emirates early evening.

Just read that and am immediately aware of how blase I'm becoming - have seen two GTCs in the past week, past a Phantom on the way home, a silver 612 on a run to the shops and must have stared in horror at at least three similarly st X6s over the weekend.

I also saw a 599 last weekend; what a totally stunning car that is.

Yeah - see silly cars all the time - hence the joy of seeing something older and more quirky. There's a great old Mercedes wreck in Sharjah near where I used to work - would love to get hold of it and restore it.

As they say, you can't buy taste but all you have to do is pop along to Al Khor to see the year old exotica that Ahmed has got bored of since something shinier came out.

Just saw a white Ford GT on the way home, leaving DFC. Not in the same class as others, but I think that's the first one I've seen.
