On Any Given Sunday

It’s been a long time since I last headed out to a Cars And Coffee event in Sydney. Almost two years, in fact, so it was only natural for me to be a little excited to see some cars that would normally be hidden away in garages for most of the year. I mentioned to a friend in the days leading up to Cars And Coffee at The Newport that I was hopeful for at least an Alpine A110 and (maybe) a McLaren Senna to make an appearance at the local Sydney bar. I was disappointed when I couldn’t find an Alpine, but it was almost made up for when I set eyes upon the Senna in Victory Grey no less. Though it is no McLaren F1 (no car will surpass its status in my humble eyes), the Senna has already sold out across the world. Well, not completely because I managed to find one for sale for a cool $2.1m on a local used car selling website here in Australia. Back on topic, the main flavour for the day was a mix of Lamborghini and Porsche, and while I have no complaints about either given my consistent run-ins with Porsches late last year, I couldn’t help but feel like there was a lot less variety than in events past. Beyond all of that though, what I enjoyed most was seeing people of all ages out on a Sunday morning feasting upon the sights, sounds and smells of an average supercar meet.
