Exotic car dealership

How many of you live in a city with an exotic car dealership? It seems that a lot of you do, but i want to get an official number.
I live in San Francisco and there is a dealer that sells British makes (land rover, jaguar, lotus,bentley and Rolls Royce.) and next door is the lamborghini dealership that is a branch of the same company. Across the street is a mercedes benz dealership where the guy who previously owned my mother's former car, (a 190E) bought the car.

We have two Ferrari dealers? I only thought we had Ferrari-Maserati of Ontario. I know we have Lamborghini of Toronto, and Coventry Sales, but that's all I can think of. Time to go check the auto-trader.

No exotic dealerships here, nearest one is about 25 minutes away and it's a very small lotus dealership.

I live within walking distance of 5 Auto Dealerships. Nothing exotic though. There is a Ford, Honda, Nissan/Mercedes, Volvo/Mitsubishi/VW, and Toyota/BMW. I've seen a Bentley CGT at the VW dealer, and also the owner of that dealership has 2 Ferrari 355's. The Mercedes dealer has some AMG's and some very nice high end models but the SLR unfortuantely has never been there.

15 minutes walk from my house is a huge Ferrari/Maserati dealer. 1 Min walk away from that is a big BMW dealership. 3 Mins walk from that is a Porsche dealer.

In the other direction is Jaguar, and Lexus.

There's an Aston Martin one somewhere around here too. Dunno where though.
