Cavallino Cars and Coffee – 7 September 2014

September 9, 2014 11:09 pm

A miserable, wet weekend didn’t deter the crowds as the Cavallino Cars and Coffee juggernaut celebrated Fathers’ Day in style. There was freshly brewed coffee and a delicious selection of baked treats and cars alike, with something for every taste.

Yours truly made the bold decision to persevere with the roof-less Lotus 340R, even given the lingering showers. It proved the right choice until the large puddle at Frenchs Forest en route to Terrey Hills…

Though stunning in their own right, the colour 0f the majority of cars in attendance reflected the subdued weather conditions:

Until we spotted this striking Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale on display in the car park:

It went on to win the Peoples’ Choice Award for the day, with its popularity evident in the difficulty of taking a clear shot of it all morning:

There were a few drive-bys from these late exotics looking for a parking spot:

And then the big Bull arrived. He certainly knows how to draw a crowd:

Along with the exotica, there were some more humble but equally immaculate cars, from old:

To new:

There were a few of Hethel’s finest:

Some modern German bahnstormers:

This is an ultra rare E36 M3R, prepared in Australia in very limited numbers and sold at a great premium to the standard M3 to selected customers holding a CAMS racing licence:

The V8 Vantage is still such a suave looking coupe:

After a walk around the adjacent car park, we ventured back to the main display of treats in the Cavallino lot, and spied a brand new M4, in signature Austin Yellow:

This charming classic Morgan 4/4:

Another Aston, this time a DBS V12:

And finally, a Carrara White GT3 RS, which sat loud and proud in its race-ready spec in the middle of everything else:
