Big Money Exotics in West Van/Highway 99 today

No pics but I have to share what I saw today.

First I saw a Ford GT pulled over at one of the Caulfield exits on the upper-levels highway. It was painted in the blue/orange scheme (I believe the term is the LeMans Gulf style). Anyway it was pulled over with its trunk (hood if it was front engined) up and a new Lexus SUV beside it which looked to be jumping it. I can only assume the Ford GTs have their batteries front mounted. Great looking car anyway.

Second car I saw was coming back on the Sea to Sky highway around Lions Bay going South bound (enroute from Whistler I can only assume) was a gorgeous black Mercedes SLR convertible. Needless to say I almost drove my car off the road cranking my neck around to check that thing out. The road presence of that vehicle is insane.

Sorry no pics, was driving and cell phone was dead.

Anyone in the area seen these vehicles around? Can't imagine there is more than one of either of those cars around the lower mainland.

I'll add some google images for interest's sakes.

SLR roadster has been spotted tons of times in West Van, Downtown and has showed up to various car events. The Ford GT has also been spotted, I think someone here snapped some pictures of it.

Any words on the owners of these beauties? Locals? Some seriously spendy vehicles. Also saw a white R8 taking the 1st Ave exit after the Cassiar connector...second time I've seen that one I believe.

haha, i saw that exact Ford GT today on the side of road by taylor way exit. are you sure it was caulfield and not taylor way though? the lexus was beside it as well. the GT had number 3 on it.

have seen that SLR many times around. there's actually two of them and the other day i spotted both. one has red interior with ontario plates, other has beige interior with bc plates.

also saw a red 430 spider today on marine drive.

The Ford GT is currently in our service bay - it's battery is dead due to a lack of driving.

BTW the Gulf LeMans colour scheme is called "heritage colours" on the GT.

Must've been Taylor Way exit, not Caulfield for the GT. Not sure if this SLR was the one with red interior from ON or the other one.

dont know wat the fuck is the hype about

Cobra/Z06/ZR1/SRT-10 are cool because for the money? its pretty much the fastest thing u can get for under $100g

still a ford, a cheap domestic

people bash NSX was overprice when MSRP was $150,000

FORD GT off my head is like $280g or 300g or some bullshit like that
for a FORD? no thx, no matter how well it performs i could careless
Would anyone care if KIA released a 900hp car that costs half a mill? a 10 second car stock? no thank you

not for that kind of money for a FORD

ferrari,lambo, massa, bentley yes

you do know Ford has been making cars for over a 100 years, right?

if that still doesn't make sense, i suggest you to read and search about Ford racing history before writing nonsense crap.

Ha ha I spotted it in your shop (I work next door)

Why do all the GT's go in that bay? is it the hoist? or the tech?

It's both actually. The GT is way too low to get on the 2 post, so it has to go on the drive on hoist. He's also pretty much the only person that works on them.
