I always look forward to the annual Exotic Car Festival in Celebration Florida. It is held at a great location and they always manage to have a spectacular car or two amongst a very nice group of cars. This year they had a brand new McLaren P1 and it was my first time seeing one in person. I also managed to see it drive in for the show and drive off at the end of the day which I captured on my GoPro and can be seen by clicking the P1 picture above. I've now seen the Porsche 918 Spyder and the McLaren P1 and I'm still on the hunt to see a LaFerrari. That is only a matter of time as I know a customer that is awaiting delivery of his. Hopefully I'll get a chance to photograph it. Until then I'll hold judgement as to which one I think is the best but so far both the Porsche and McLaren are drop dead awesome. Also at the show was a 1969 Lamborghini Miura and that video can be seen by clicking above.
The spectacular one off Bugatti Veyron Sang Bleu was there with a new owner and even though I've seen it many times now it is still breathtaking to look at and more than once I found myself just staring at it. This year the selection was well rounded with vintage cars, old muscle cars, race cars, the usual exotics and the popular movie cars. This year they had a section for custom motorcycles with Orange County Choppers Paul Teutul, Sr. in attendance and it was cool to see him come riding by. He wasn't the only Celebrity I saw at the show. The two Bugattis and the P1 caught everyone's attention including the one and only Apollo Creed, the guy that fought Rocky Balboa in the 1976 Oscar winning film Rocky. His real name is Carl Weathers and he spent a long time checking out the P1 and Veyron. I must say he was in fantastic shape and its had to believe he made that move almost forty years ago. I wonder how well Mr. T has held up. I do know it was another great show on a day when the weather was near perfect. The only thing I missed were the track days at Daytona but there is always next year. Here are some pictures of the Saturday show and I have a complete video of the event and several more galleries to add in the future.
