Hyde Park London, Spotted some nice cars

So I went to Hyde Park today for my training for the Olympics (im selling merchandise)...

On the way in I saw a McLaren 12c at the Aston Martin dealership in Stratstone.

When I eventually got off, just at the Aston Martin Dealership, nothing really catches my eyes with Aston's, however, around the next corner I see a red car with big massive taillights on either end of the car, and there and behold I saw the Cavallino logo wedged quite space fully between those lights.

A Ferrari 458 Italia... It made my day, after a 2 hour bus journey of enduring crying babies, and to walk around Hyde Park in the rain did not sound like a good day.

But seeing this car literally made my day, I wish I took more angles for the pictures, but I had to take as much time possible to find my store in the park.

Whilst lining up again for the bus, I saw what looks like a very very very old Ferrari that was in the glass windows of a shop, I couldn't see because trees were in the way and I couldn't go wonder as I would miss my bus.

Other cars I saw around London was Phantom, R8, countless Porsches, expensive Merc's, convertible M6, countless Aston's.

That will likely have been the window of the HR Owen atelier which is in the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge on the south side of Hyde Park. There are three Ferraris in the window there (which is just down the road from McLaren showroom at One Hyde Park).

Thanks Jonathan,

It wasn't at H.R. Owen as it was very near the Aston Dealership on park lane (facing east side of hyde park)...

But, I found where the dealership is on google maps (south of hyde park), and will go look through the window there

make things clearly. blue is where I saw it, and the red is where you are talking about (I presume?)

That may be Bob Forstner's "Excalibur" showroom. They do have some Ferrari sometimes...I went inside a couple of times to inspect the Paganis they have.

Amanderu, you are correct.

Was a Ferrari, next to it was a Pagani, and Murcielago Roadster.
