Sorry the site has been quiet, I am on the road a lot these days in the states so the posts will be scarce. As always, here is the well-liked ExoticSpotSA post of the week. Special mentions go to the only red Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series in SA which was spotted in Rustenburg, a stunning Aston Martin Vanquish Centenary Edition and a combo shot of a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster sleeping under the covers next to a Ferrari F430. Have a good weekend!

Just the other day I shared some renderings of the new Golf R 400 Concept and I was obsessed with it. Well now I have discovered that they will actually be building this hot machine. This is fantastic news but expect it to pack one hell of a price-tag!
This owner really cocked it up badly when they managed to drive their sexy F-Type into a batch of wet cement somewhere in the Unites States. Apparently he/she was tired of waiting in the traffic and wanted to take a 'shortcut' but it seems karma reared her head in a bad way. I am sure they manage to pull it out before the cement dried. Is it just me or does it look like the owner has tinted the exhausts the same colour as the car? FAIL!

The Germans have pulled the covers off a new concept Golf known as the Golf R 400 and I am guessing you know what the 400 stands for. This car is based on the new Golf R but instead of the 296 hp pumping from the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it gets about 395 horses which means it can hit 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The top speed is a reported 282 km/h and as one can see in the teaser images, it gets a wider more swollen body kit with many other bits and pieces. This looks damn bonkers and I simply cant wait to see the actual car!
Most Porsche owners are fairly conservative when it comes to modifying there machines but some people like their car to stand out a little extra by simply giving it some custom graphics or wrapping. The owner of this brand new 991 GT3 decided to give it a racing look with some lime green livery and I think it looks fantastic! How many of you agree with me? This new 911 GT3 is one of the best Porsche's ever made in my opinion.
Just the other day I shared a teaser image of a new 2015 Subaru WRX STI with a blue rear wing well it has been shown in full and it will be the new contender for the Global Rally Cross. It is a joint project with Subaru Rally Team USA, RedBull Global Rallycross and NBC to promote the new season which starts on the 18th of May. The car comes with a custom wide body kit, carbon rear wing, rally style roof scoop and mirrors.
Audi are going to unveil their new RS7 Dynamic Edition at the New York Auto Show and it will be packed with options. So much so that it will cost a whopping $146 045 which is more than a standard R8. The Dynamic Edition comes with a carbon front splitter, rear diffuser and engine cover, sports exhaust system and 21" gloss black alloys housing the red calipers with RS7 logo. Inside the car gets a black Valcona honeycomb leather seat matched with Crimson Red seatbelts. The power remains unchanged so can you quantify an additional $41 145 for some cosmetic changes?
This week we see a fair amount of exotics being spotted in Cape Town but some special mentions have to go to the first 'wild' shot of the Ferrari 458 Speciale, nice Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo combo shot, epic Aston Martin Vanquish Volante and a stunning shot of the McLaren Orange 650S. Enjoy!

A stunning red Ferrari 458 Italia has been crashed in Beckton, United Kingdom, after the driver of the vehicle lost control of the car. The supercar veered off the road which was elevated and would have come crashing down onto the track if it wasn't for the concrete barricade protecting the train track. The front of the car was severely damaged and is most likely going to be a write-off. Luckily though, there were no casualties, it was reported that the driver of the Ferrari was seen coming out of the car and running up the road most likely to call for help/assistance but the passenger was said to be injured. The exact cause of the crash is still unknown.
