Car spotters

A Car spotter is a person who is typically strongly interested, in an amateur capacity, in car spotting, which is observing or photographing interesting, vintage, rare, modified, and/or exotic supercars on public roads.[1] Car spotters can be found worldwide.

A car spotter may also log about his or her "spots" on an internet forum, such as Cardatabase.net,[2] Autogespot.com,[3] ExoticSpotter.com,[4] CarSpotting.com,[5] streetfire.net,[6] madwhips.com,[7] Carspotter Daily,[8] or various groups on Facebook.

Car spotters can often be found in large, wealthy cities and areas such as London, Dubai, Geneva, Zurich, Monaco, Singapore, Milan, Miami, Beverly Hills, and Greenwich where exotic cars and exotic car shows are most commonly found/held.

Car spotters usually carry a DSLR camera and rely on social media to direct them to the nearest "spot".
