^^^ That was for sure a rare spotting.  Thats a dealer tag correct? 

This one is rare as well in the US a Toyota made Century  from the website

""A full model change in June 2018 led to the development of the third-generation Century, which remains Japan's only chauffeur-driven automobile.""

seen in Hilton Head  and it was in the British driving style with the steering wheel on the right.

I’m familiar with the Century, but am more intrigued by the white sedan next to it.  It looks like a cross between the 4th-gen S-Class and a late 80s Mazda 929.  Wonder what that one is…

Not in the QC but down here in the luxury car capital of the southeast that being South Florida.  Saw this Lucid dealer in downtown West Palm,  I thought it was a restaurant at first then I saw the signs.  The showroom opened at noon so I missed it.

Since I from the QC I will put these up here.  Down in greater Miami and boy do you see some nice cars.  Many of these were at the site of the new Bentley condo tower where their sales office is now in Sunny Isles (north Miami Beach) and some from here and there.  I thought a car show at the sales office of the Bentley condos is great marketing. 

https://bentleyinmiami.com/   I was going to put my name on the reservation list then I checked my Mega Millions ticket and alas had to cancel for now.  Only 749 feet tall okay I will still consider it maybe. 

If you want to see only cars in the QC look away now.   Rolls Royce must be the new choice of the wealthy down here have seen a lot of them including a pink Rolls at the Publix in Palm Beach.  Never seen a Karma car in my life.

I'll have to share some cars from around Charlotte that I've seen lately, just haven't had time to post.  Karma is an unusual case as that car was originally designed by Henrick Fisker (designer of the Tesla Model S) and was sold as the Fisker Karma, a sort of Model S competitor.  Fisker had done some "coachwork" cars previously, producing a limited run of expensive coupes and convertibles based on BMWs and Mercedes, but the Karma was their first in-house model.  Sales flopped due to a number of high profile breakdowns while in the hands of reviewers and Fisker Automotive went bankrupt a few years later.  After the bankruptcy, a Chinese company called Karma Automotive bought most of the assets from Fisker and started producing the Revero which was basically the same car.  McLaren of Charlotte briefly sold Karma vehicles but it looks like they've dropped the brand in favor of even more exclusive automakers.  I have seen a few of those Reveros around Charlotte but they are very rare.
