Hong Kong may not be Indianapolis, but fast cars are a dime a dozen - well, so to speak!
Just about any name brand sports cars can be seen, and heard, in Hong Kong, even though they may just be
stuck in traffic like everyone else - in style though.
If you would like to admire some of these beautiful machines up close, you don't have to wait on the roadside for them to rumble by. There's a stretch of car dealers on Gloucester Road in Wan Chai that specialize in them, both the cars and the rumble! Go before it's still not a tourist attraction yet; no line and no restrictions - that is, they let you into the store without making you line up outside like in some name brand stores on Canton Road in TST. Who knows! After we talk about them, it may become a tourist attraction and they'll have to start charging for admission!
Spotted by us here include both Italian sports cars and others - Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, Aston-Martin, Lotus, etc. But no DeLorean, it seems, so you'll have to go back to the future to see those! And for a glimpse of a Tesla, the electric sports car that can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, you'll have to go elsewhere.
If you're living in Hong Kong and want to take one of these high performance automobiles out for a spin before adding it to your collection of toys, they might even deliver the car to your home for a test-drive. Or if you just want to be Michael Schumacher for a day, there's probably a place to rent one - as long as you can pay for the insurance, I would think.
