I know some of you live in relatively remote areas and it must be almost impossible to come across another exotic, but for those of you who do see other exotics out in the wild, what is your typical reaction? Is your initial reaction to slow down and gawk at the other car (I admit I do that sometimes, haha), or do you rev your engine a little bit to get their attention, or do you simply do nothing and just keep going on your way?
I don't get to do a great deal of highway driving, and so an impromptu bit of spirited driving with another exotic remains for the most part a bit of a fantasy. In fact, I've only ever had one experience where an orange LP560 and I gave our respective cars a bit of a squirt and crossed a bridge together at somewhat high speeds. But other than that, unless I was participating in an arranged exotic car meet-and-drive, most of my encounters with other high-end sportscars have been pretty uneventful. Usually, I get a lot of Corvette and Viper owners saying they'd love to trade cars with me, which I always find amusing.
Mind you, that hasn't stopped plenty of drivers in relatively mundane cars from trying to goad me into racing. For some strange reason, lots of Volvo and Bimmer 3-series drivers want to race. It's weird.
If you have stories about your encounters with other exotics out in the wild, I'm sure lots of us here would love to hear them.
