Merc must have a test facility somewhere in Al Quoz as I often see test fleets heading out of there onto Al Khail road.
It's not that hidden really - mahoosive DAIMLER sign on top of the building at the SZR-side of Jebel Ali kind gives it away. Yes, that's the corporate HQ but also houses the test facility.

JLR has a test facility here too, but I'm not allowed to say where wink

I really want to spot that Veyron and the prototype Range! >.<


Anyways, saw this on Emirates Road on Friday morning while heading towards Dubai Autodrome. No idea what it is though...

It appears to be on German plates so that may well be a good call.

Googled the i3, seems the rear lights/hatch are different. Camo is the same though??

It looks like those rear lights are temporary - people in Paris would go through a few sets per year if they were in effect the bumper!

If I owned the white one and my buddy owned the grey one, well, I'd be gutted. Happy as fk obviously, but a little gutted.
