Ahh... there's nothing like racing your Ferrari uphill to eat Dim Sum

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try and pass them.

Karman,

great pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Where in Hong Kong is it? I've been there a few times, but never seen so many exotic cars at the same place.

regards,

Hey TC, I am not sure if Karson is back, but I think you got the both of us mixed up (??)

Peter, the gathering took place in a place called Luk Geng in Tai Po (New Territories).

Cheers.

Re: Morning Drive in Hong Kong

I share the view many of you have regarding the GT3. A beautiful car. I really like the TT front lights and carrera style front bumper combination. The new rear wing has grown on me too.

Thanks for posting Karmann. Great pictures.

Re: Morning Drive in Hong Kong

Is it still true that there are more Rolls Royces per capita in Hong Kong than anywhere else?

Actually it is more like : The most RR per square kilometres (or SqMiles) than any other country in the world

And not just garden variety RR Silver Spitir/Spur, there's quite many Phantom VIs

It's amazing to see S-Class, NMW-7, RRs and Bentleys in HK despite the small roads. Back in the 80's what I noticed most was the abundance of long-wheelbase Jaguar XJ sedans (LWB meaning 30cm stretch on the B-pillars).

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try and pass them.

Re: Morning Drive in Hong Kong

I wish we had those type of gatherings here in Belgium too. Is there anyone aware of some sort of supercar club in Belgium?
