That unicorn was a red 2000 BMW Z8. I saw this pulling into a 7-11 near my apartment and had to get a picture. Talked to the owner for a few minutes and he said that his car was 1 of 4 sold in the RVA and believes his is the only one left on the area.
I'm sure his son, sitting in the passenger seat, thought I was nuts.
Side note, saw a red Acura NSX yesterday but my potato S5 didn't get a good picture
