PH Photo Gallery: May supercar spotting


If you browse through these photos below, you'll notice that it's only raining in one of them. One could take this as a sign that the summer sun is here to stay for the May edition of supercars spotted in London. However, in reality it's more likely that I just didn't bother leaving my flat if the weather wasn't good... Ironically, you'll notice that the solitary photo in the rain is of a LaFerrari Aperta, the convertible variant of the Italian hypercar - maybe not the ideal car for a wet London afternoon.

When the sun did shine some very interesting and special cars did make an appearance. A beautiful green on green Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster is probably one of the classiest things I've seen parked in Mayfair, at the complete opposite end of the spectrum to the green Mansory GT Race (Bentley Continental) that doubtless many of you will be appalled by. Another amazing car I came across was the Ferrari 250 SWB pictured with only three wheels. The owner informed me that the car was entirely original (other than the seats) and had covered over 100,000 kilometres in its lifetime.

Other interesting spots include a Jaguar XJR-15 race car being unloaded from a lorry in Mayfair, the LaFerrari Aperta and SF15-T Formula One car we showed you a few weeks ago, and an extended wheelbase Bentley Mulsanne which wouldn't have looked out of place in a presidential motorcade. One of the first customer AMG GT Rs, a pair of Huayras, an Aventador SV and Aventador S nose to nose plus a few very nice F12 TdFs were also seen around.

It would always be possible to create an album solely of modern supercars and hypercars each month; however, I'm sure you'll agree they don't necessarily have the charm and interest of some of the older cars which I have also tried to include. Make sure to check back in around a month's time for the June instalment!

    Gotta wonder what that girl is thinking about the driver of the LaFerrari

    She was thinking 'why have you just accelerated at me whilst crossing the road without indicating'...

    I don't agree. I think it's quite interesting, and something not too serious to enjoy in your coffee break...
