Whilst looking through my collection of photos and reminiscing my immensely memorable trip from a couple of months ago, i realised i failed to share with you readers the cars i spotted on my travels.
If you were imagining Germany to be littered with Porsches, BMWs, Benzes and numerous fast Audis. You’d be quite right. It was at least true for the places i visited. Especially on my day out on the Alpenstrasse, where so many interesting cars were around that you sort of do become desensitised to their presence.
Nonetheless, here’s a very very small taste of the cars from my trip to Bavaria and the Nurburgring.
F-Generation 7 Series taxi for your commute? Taxis are a rather pricey way of getting around. A 30 minute ride from Munich airport into town runs close to S$80! (About 50 Euros)
There were quite a number of old/youngtimer machines still on the streets. They clearly love their nostalgic autos. Unfortunately as my time in town was really limited, my Munich city spots has to end here, but let’s move on towards the Nurburgring!
Just a few minutes upon arrival and my eyes were already starting to pop out at the fine automobiles driving around the venue.
Team Bentley were cruising around in style with a number of Bentaygas providing shuttle.
I’d be tempted to say Germany’s car scene is right up there with Japan’s.
The cool cars just kept coming in.
i reckon the plate reflects what’s under the bonnet of this really really immaculate E30 M3. So much want! Then it was time for us to move our car into the Nurburgring Info Center parking garage.
On our drive in, we’ve passed by numerous camp sites already littered with Porsches and M cars, but in this parking garage, I was like a kid in a candy store.
Ring Taxi! Shame Sabine is no longer one of the drivers.
There were plenty of cars parked up in their own groups.
Not that many JDMs on this side of the continent.
Normally i wouldn’t be interested in Lamborghinis but this carried Russian plates and made me wonder if the owner drove all the way down.
A contingent of Swiss plated cars came in shortly before us. I was pretty sure they did drive all the way down, must have been an amazing road trip through all the mountain passes.
There were plenty of M-cars in Germany. Is this Heaven?
Clown shoe sans M. Still, a very unique car. I’d love to have one. We soon found ourselves chilling outside Hotel Döttinger Höhe and i was once again in my happy place just looking at the cars pulling in and out of the service station.
Lovely Opel Kadett made a lovely noise.
Looks like i got spotted! Ooops!
Not your normal everyday 2 Series. This was fully decked out Ac Schnitzer vehicle. Judging by the number of heads turned when it passed through, it seemed most people here knew their stuff!
Then this came in!
Initially i thought the plates were French but some online detective work showed otherwise! Those are actually German plates but done up in French style. Strange but true.
Bye bye E30! I really do want one of those, but unless i find myself a job in Germany, it remains an impossible dream!
Vintage Opels seem to have a rather strong following here as a pair of really loud Mantas came in with their tweaked V8s burbling loud and proud.
Check out that rear wheel dish!
Back at our hotel, this is what greeted us as we awoke the next day. Pretty much the entire catalogue of AMGs on sale currently, each of them a top-of-the-line variant. Can you imagine a better morning greeting? I can’t.
Ending off this feature, here’s the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio driving past us as we dropped off our 5 Series press cars en route to Frankfurt Airport for our journey home!
