I would never EVER park such a car in that car park next to hassled mums in Prados.

If I ever drive the 'grale there, I park in the next street and walk it.

I agree, I'd never park there if I had an expensive exotic.

I love the way the owner feels that the hassle of getting a Salik tag far outweighs the cost of the fines rofl

6500 dhs in fines, my goodness, that's just less than 10% of a standard service of a Bug. I would be happy to pay fines costing just 10% of a service!!

Sounds like a bargain to run one of those outside of the law!

I suspect the person who owns that does not follow the same rules as you and me.

That said, I once saw Sheikh Mo patiently waiting in a traffic jam. No bodyguards or outriders. No "do you know who I am" swagger at the wheel. The guy just rocks up to the Emirates Towers in a white G55, hands the keys to the valet and breezes in. Kudos.

from what i see and read, sheikh mo is indeed a proper gent, levelheaded ruler and all-round cool guy. seems a proper petrol head too!

do all his cars carry the '1' plate? i am sure there was a mercedes slr with it on outside the grand millennium once whilst i was staying there.

Must say it looks much better in real life, especially in silver.

Lovely looking young lady solo at the wheel, she looked in her mid 20s tops.

Saw a Ruby Red Weissman GT in Abu Dhabi on Monday - only saw it from the back and side - looked very purposeful.

There's a normal red one in Al Barsha from time to time - lovely.

I've had my own red trio this week:

Monday, lovely looking thing:



Tuesday, New 911, think it's the new demo downstairs



Today, one of those Ford GT40s, making a wonderful noise pulling away from the Porsche dealership earlier. Didn't manage to get a pic.

My first proper look at an Aventador in the flesh.

What a stunning car.

Not sure if it qualifies for the thread, but in a world where the SUV is King a new SRT8 is fair compromise...and DXBtiger will appreciate it even if nobody else does!

Candy red. Such an achingly beautiful colour. Was seriously considering repainting my 'grale that colour (same as the final special edition Dealer Collection 'grale) but opted for the original look instead.

Nice stuff! Where was the 8C spotted?


Anyways, spotted a lovely yellow LP640 at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray at the Palm today (decided to go for a drive lol). Didn't have the camera with me though :/.
