Matt Davis, from gift experience compant Activity Superstore, said: “We’re living in an era of supercar showmanship. Where millionaires, and billionaires, use their exotic automotive finery to wow an audience of admirers.
“It obviously works because in just the last three years, a huge 148 million supercars have been Instagrammed.
“There may be many dedicated enthusiasts out there but almost everyone can appreciate a beautifully crafted supercar when they see one.
“For this reason, we decided to map out where the supercar capitals are so people know where to go if they want to spot one.” (Standard)
