Surely one of the best specified Lamborghini Huracáns in Melbourne. Its paint looks to be Grigio Telesto, a colour first offered on the LP640 Murciélago. 
Let us know your favourite local spec, and quote the numberplate if you remember it!
There’s a new Bentley Continental on the block, and while the general shape remains much the same, this is an entirely new car. It’s even got a dual-clutch transmission - take that, Aventador.
Car engines are getting smaller in size across the board, but Bentley has missed the memo. Featuring a reworked version of its 6-litre twin-turbo W12 now outputting 466kW of power and 900Nm of torque, it can launch to 100km/h in a blisteringly quick (for a car of this size and weight) 3.7 seconds! That’s quicker than the 6.5L V12 Rolls-Royce Ghost heading the other direction.
Great spot via our Spotting Thread today, @ethanabey!
They don’t make cars this beautiful anymore; a breathtaking Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster spotted on Exhibition Street last week. 
It is undoubtedly one of the most desired sports cars of all time, and this is one of just 554 built in 1957, of the 1,858 built in total. 
Fantastic find, Andrew J!
A stunning McLaren 12C Spider we don’t see much of spotted in Brighton on Sunday. 
Great find, @robert.harvey_!
A couple of Australia’s first registered Alpine A110s were spotted out and about over the weekend! Sometimes the best way to introduce a new car is to mention its competitors. In the case of the A110, it’s the likes of Porsche’s 718 Cayman, and Alfa’s 4C that the Renault-owned French manufacturer is taking aim at. Its turbo 1.8L 4-cylinder engine sends 185kW to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch ‘box.
This is of course a reimagining of the original A110 with styling cues taken from the gorgeous 1600S of the seventies in particular.
Would you consider it if you had $100k to spend on a mid-engined sports car?
Thanks to @tommyfraser and @louisbuchler for the spots!
It does not get much better than this, and we’d say that for the Ferrari 599 GTO alone. Having said that, if you don’t swipe left, you’re doing yourself a great injustice; successor to the GTO, an F12 TDF makes this an incredibly rare combo.
Both belong to the same Ferrari collector, who also has a LaFerrari among many others. 
Which would you take for a drive through the Yarra Valley, and tag a mate to drive the other.
Brilliant spot, @lukevangrieken! Healesville on a sunny weekend never disappoints.
What colour is more appropriate than Racing Yellow for a Porsche 911 (991.1) GT3 on a lovely spring day? It was spotted sitting pretty in the back streets on Toorak recently.
An outrageous Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Roadster on Flinders Lane at noon. The colour is rare Bianco Canopus (matte white). It’s also currently on the market for $1.2m. 
Great spot, @ashtonemini!
Here’s the second $2 million McLaren Senna to hit Melbourne (Australia, too)! Spotted this morning on a flatbed, this is as close to driving on Melbourne roads we expect it will get, as it’s thought to be here briefly for display purposes only.
Great spotting, @lordbean!
A spectacular McLaren 675LT Spider spotted topless in Donvale. Of 500 globally, Melbourne has seen ten, including an MSO example in fully exposed carbon-fibre which has unfortunately never been seen on the road. The Spiders outnumber their coupe counterparts, of which we've seen only six. Which would you opt for?
Thanks to @_benjackson_ for the spot!
Our first look at what is a magnificent Lamborghini Huracán Performante finished in a colour worth more than a small hatchback ($21k), and with a numberplate worth more than a small house. Excellent photo, @rahulofficial!
Healesville providing the goods this past Saturday with two very interesting cars from the current Porsche 911 GT3 lineup. Front and centre is of course our first feature of a 991.2-series GT3 RS, one of, if not the first on Melbourne roads. The updated 4-litre flat-six now redlines at 9,000rpm!
Next to it sits a GT3 Touring, just the second we’ve seen in Melbourne. A no-cost option, the Touring Package most notably deletes the fixed rear wing, and is available only with a six-speed manual.
Great spot, @wpn_765!
