Panama City, Panama is a booming metropolis in Central America. It's a hub for international trade and there are massive skyscrapers going up all over the city. Of course, there are exotic cars (including this sizzling Red Nissan GT-R).

A side note: How many times have you had some college kid giddily proclaim to you, "I'm going to "Panama" for Spring Break!" ?   You reply, "That's wonderful. Central America is a beautiful part of the world and Panama is a wonderful place to vacation." The college kid then gives you a confused look and, while using a tone that suggests you should brush up on your geography knowledge, says something to the order of, "Huh??? Central America?... What?... Uh, I'm going to Flo-rida. You KNOW Pan-am-a C-i-ty." You then shake your head and simply walk away hoping that the kid will stumble upon Panama City, Panama while attempting to use Google Maps on his iPhone to show his buddies the best route for their Spring Break trip.

Here is a peak into the REAL "Panama", i.e. not Panama City, Florida  =)   Chevere!

Interesting Fact: The Panamanian currency is the Balboa (It is only made in coins these days. Paper Balboas are not longer printed). Since its creation in 1904, the Balboa has been tied to the US Dollar on a 1 to 1 basis. So, if you're coming from the USA, just bring dollars and spend them, as they are accepted in trade with no problems. In fact, the US Dollar is the paper currency that is used in Panama (since paper Balboas are no longer printed.)

Friend of the site Javier A. Ortiz sends these photos of a Red Nissan GTR at, wait for it, ...Walmart (Yes, you read that right. Walmart, aka the home of falling prices.)

Memo to all you car spotters out there: Apparently, Walmart is the new supercar Mecca. (Ok, maybe one supercar at one Walmart in one town does not mean that every Walmart is a great supercar spotting location, but this sighting should be a reminder that supercars can show up in unexpected places.)

Bonus Pic: This silky smoothy Silver Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed is brought to you courtesy of friend of the site Kyle Smith. He spotted it while out on and about in SoCal. Thanks for the pic Kyle!... Seriously sick sedan!...

You can tell this is the "Speed" edition of the Continental Flying Spur from looking at the special wheels. These multi-spoke wheels are fitted by the factory on "Speed" edition Bentleys.  The Fly Spur Speed was introduced in 2009, has a top speed of 200mph, and rockets from 0-60mph in about 4.7 seconds! This is incredible performance for a  car that weighs in at over 5,600 lbs! (As a reference, the standard edition Flying Spur goes 0-60mph in a relatively turtle-esque 5.2 seconds.)

Happy Saturday blog readers! Today, I bring you another of my exotic car videos. This one is of a Red Nissan GTR customized by JoTech Racing.  There are some great shots of arrival, acceleration, a view under the hood, and also the always important engine rev audio =)

What are your thoughts on this car?  What do you like or dislike about how the owner decided to upgrade and customize it? How do you think it sounds compared to other GTR's you've heard?
