London is On Lockdown—But It’s Still a Great Place for Carspotting

Like any major city center in the world, London has always been known as a luxury car and fancy hypercar hotspot. Some of the coolest car spotting videos you will see on the Internet were filmed in London. Tourists even fly in and roam around the streets just to catch sights of cool cars.

However, in a recent video taken by car enthusiast and YouTuber Shmee150, London was unusually quiet and the roads had no traffic because the city is now on lockdown. Fortunately, people can still go out of their homes once a day to squeeze in a bit of exercise and run essential errands.

Shmee150 decided that the best way to spend his short stint of freedom (and opportunity to exercise) is by car spotting through the streets of London. And his adventure didn’t disappoint.

People in London are said to be allowed to go out once a day for exercise, so YouTuber Shmee150 went on a car-spotting walk

Shmee150 was able to spot a couple of Mercedes-AMG G63 running down the roads. It’s a car associated with power, luxury, and off-road capability, so it’s a fitting vehicle to include in this luxury car-spotting.

His first stop for the parked-luxury-sports-car series is a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Down one street are a couple of luxury cars parked along the curb. One of them is a Lamborghini Huracan, while the other is a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II.

He was also able to see a few Ferrari sports cars parked all around the area. There was a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, a Ferrari California, and a Ferrari 458 Spider.

Fans of Aston Martins won’t fall behind because there was even a whole street dotted with cars from the luxury car brand. These included an Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster (both the old and the new generations), a Rapide S, a DBS Volante, and a DB 9 Volante.

There were also a couple of Bentleys like the rare limited-edition Continental GT3-R and the New Flying Spur. Also included in his car spotting spree was a Rolls Royce Phantom, a McLaren sports series 570S, a Maserati GranTurismo, and a Lamborghini Harucan EVO Spyder. 

Oh, and let’s not forget the two Porsches that he found that were parked opposite each other in one street. According to Shwee150, seeing the Porsche Carrera GT alongside the Porsche 911 GT3 was the highlight of his day.

There is still no shortage of luxury cars in the capital of England. Some are still plying the streets amid the lockdown while others are just parked along the roads and collecting dust—waiting until things go back to normal again.
