    An Audi Quattro I saw today.
    Picture of an identical (except the one I saw had a rollcage) vehicle:

    Why did it have a rollcage for city driving though? :confused:

    Are original Toyota FJs rare in America? I saw one earlier today.

    It depends on your area. For me, I live in a city that isn't very old, so the oldest cars around where I live are from the 1980s. But when you go out a few miles from the suburbs, older cars are more common.

    Not too rare. A lot of the houses in my neighborhood are more like upper-middle class businesspeople houses, I don’t live in a neighborhood with a lot of car guys (sadly). See a lot of Honda Accords and Chevy Suburbans, and a few BMWs and Mercedes. Somebody that lives in my city dailies a G-Wagen. Seen it a few times now just driving around town.

    I've seen quite a few rare cars....I saw a red NSX in a driveway once, and a Red Lamborghini Huracan. I've also seen a stock DMC-12. Oh, and a beautiful '73 Riviera.

    Edit:
    Almost forgot, I saw a gorgeous R32 during my trip to England.

    There's a stock DMC-12 in my neighborhood. See it at the grocery store sometimes.

    My most notable rare car sighting was also a 2000GT, hidden away in the back corner of the Vancouver International Auto Show last year. One of the 60 sold in North America with left-hand drive.

    I once saw a Rimac Concept One at a car show.

    As for normal traffic, a Pontiac Solstice Coupe in front of my local Tesco. Less than 800 made, and much less currently registered in Poland.

    I've seen a few DeLoreans and about 10 mins drive from my house there is an Audi Quattro which I usually see drive on the bus journey to school.
    image.png A Jaguar XJ220 Pre-production model is in a museum near me.
    image.png Also earlier this year at a car show I saw a genuine TVR 420SE of which only 7 were built.

    Which museum is that?
    OT: I once saw a Ferrari 250GTO at Goodwood and I have seen quite a few prototypes in various museums like this P6BS at BMM. (Not my photo)

    The British Motor Museum in Gaydon (which contains factories for Jaguar-Land Rover and Aston-Martin)
    It's in the new building next to the old one. The picture isn't from the Museum though.

    You all know what this is, and yes this is the rarest car I've seen, and seems pathetic compared to all the other ones but whatever

    Is that the one with the V12 because I think I saw it when I went there. I didn’t get a chance to read about it because a water pipe burst outside so they had close early so they could fix it.
    OT: I saw a Swedish super car called the Catlin which I think they only made one of as well. It had a twin turbo V6.
